Yes, I find that knowing what time it is saves me from having to record/stream/buy/miss my favourite TV shows.

Of course, If you are not near a TV, a watch-based, 'record' button might be handy, but until LG can crack the whole, 'telling-the-time' hurdle, it will be useless!
But maybe I've misunderstood LG's 'watch' concept and in the future we will all be wearing 40+" screens so we never have to miss TV in 4K 3D - no recording necessary, but you might still need some kind of time function to reschedule other things like work and family life.
While I'm here, I have an OT, but time-based gripe on other webOS devices: How come my supposedly 'dumb' nokia can boot up and display the correct time and my webOS phone can't? I actually have an app to sync the clock! Why? It's using internet time or something - if a dumb phone can get the time from the mobile network, why not a smartphone?
