I checked the definition of the word "device" but I never heard it referring to "watches".
My question is therefore which class of objects can be referred to as "devices"?
The examples I have in mind are small electronic and/or electric appliances such as "remote control", "smartphones", "tablets" and I would rather use the word "machine" to refer to a dishwasher for example, not a "device that washes dishes".
Thank you in advance for your answer
Yes, a watch is definitely a device.
- a thing made for a particular purpose, esp. a mechanical or electric invention:
