My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Transitions

I have been having a difficult time reading my watch and knew it was time to make that next transition of finding either a larger print watch or braille watch.
I love this beautiful large print watch. As my vision continues to get fuzzier but also a small peephole it is a dilemma - do I get this cute large print watch or transition to the braille watch.
I find myself making the transition to aids such as this braille watch to make life easier.

I think I will try them both and see which I like the best ... twelve years ago I transitioned from a cane to a guide dog. Loved that decision! On the rare ocassions when I cannot take Cricket for some reason, it is nice to know the cane is available.

Hi Becky,

I have used both braille & large print watches. I like a braille watch, but it is hard to find a cute feninin one in my price range:> It also has a life span of 2 years! Maybe that's not a problem if I buy a more expensive, better quality one though.

The problem with a large print watch is that it takes me a long time to figure out the time! If I were walking and wanted to know the time, I have to stop for 5 minutes or so to stare at the watch! I So now I have a talking/large print watch. whose large print part is always off! I tell people that it's showing Chinese time, but who knows!!!
