I love my Apple Watch. I have a stainless steel band on it which makes it look more traditional. It's very nice to have as an analyst IMO when you're away from your desk / computer at any point, especially on weekends. Senior guys won't notice that you're looking at your watch as much as they would if it was your phone to check texts. They also track your workouts and give you notifications to stand up every hour, which is very good for your body, especially working IB hours

I tried it for a little bit but it became too distracting, between the emails and texts, so I gave it to my wife. I couldn't stay focused on reviewing pitchbooks or legal docs. It was helpful when I was still traveling for work with the Uber, airline and hotel notifications though. If you want something digital, I recommend a Timex Ironman.

Shinola has great bands and would recommend as a great way to make the watch less casual

No not tacky at all. Actually pretty normal to rock one in this day and age. It's not my choice as I love watches and wouldn't get one given the beauty of a real timepiece but it'll definitely not be viewed as tacky. Just don't be the guy talking into it or constantly checking your texts on it during meetings or conversations with other folks - but that just becomes a matter of being rude rather than the watch itself

In some circles it has become acceptable to wear both a nice watch and an Apple Watch at the same time, different wrists. People understand that many people enjoy wearing a nice watch but still want to keep up with their steps and activity level.
