1. Conference rooms- it's awkward to take your phone out and see the time. I have tried putting the  phone on the table as a clock but the screen shuts off

2. Speaking - it's difficult to time yourself when you are speaking without a watch.

3. Social gatherings: Even if you are  having the best time, you still want to pace yourself or time yourself to get home. It's awkward to keep pulling out your phone to see the time.

All these can be resolved, if there was wall clock close by that you can see.

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
