This advert doesn't make sense.

You’re like an STD: No one wants you, everybody hates you, and you’re a reminder of the devastating consequences of not using protection during sex.


Amount I have so far denied the BBC - £1308

So, They want people to pay them £18 PM so they can leave their phones at Home  :chinscratch:

WTF ?
If TVL/Capita/BBC Goons come calling, Hear all, See all and Say Nowt. Even more importantly, Sign Nowt.

The weed was strong in the market department that day.

But it does show a Samsung Galaxy Watch - I assume that's all they think you need to make a call, SMS, email, surf the net, etc.
and they don't show the battery charge that you need to haul around to keep this thing working.
Lets be clear on this BBC, I do not condone breaking the law.... Subscription is your future...... My Firewalls block all things BBC...So do you feel lucky - Goon....

You're both missing it.

Read what the advert actually says.

and pay extra for the smartwatch so you can still make calls etc.

Who here would buy a watch to make a call on?

It looks like a misprint. I presume it should say

I believe the advert is intended to imply that the watch is so good, it can be a replacement for your phone - and to a degree, I suppose they are correct. However, I wear an ordinary watch and my phone, along with all of its functions, happily sits in my pocket.
To Aug '18. Money spent on better things: £1598.00

But it doesn't mention using the watch.

It's arse about face for me.  I stopped wearing a watch because I could see the time on my phone and that's not gonna change anytime soon because doing it all on a watch would be a bit fiddly for my old fingers.
5 years LLF = £732.00 denied.

BBC Children in Need wanted me to do something to combat child abuse.  So I cancelled my TV licence.

I have the bluetooth version and it is much too fiddly to replace a phone.
Its good for checking emails, notifications and maybe answering a call when you're sat on the loo.

My partner has an iPhone and Apple watch and swears by them, me, I have and prefer my Seiko SKX007j beater watch and my old mans King Seiko for dress and a works supplied hideous Windows phone, once fully retired the Seiko's will still be with me and no fecking phones.  :biggrin:
Who cares about answering emails in the middle of something important.... ;)
