    Thoughts on the FC Manufacture HYBRID

    I honestly like the of idea, and really think this FC is incredibly handsome, but I do have some reservations.

    Many of the reasons I use my Apple watch during exercise would be filled by this, but at the same time, wouldn't be... I would feel odd sweating and working out in this watch (which looks like a dress watch) and I'm also a huge swimmer, and this doesn't do swim tracking (and again, I'd feel weird sprinting with this type of watch on). [Plus, I'd have to charge it; would be cool if the automatic movement/winding would be able to charge the battery as well]

    I think the watch companies are on to something here, and I'm excited for the future! (However, I'll never give up my classic timepieces!)

    Sounds pretty cool, to me.

    It's not smart to pick ambassadors who have political agendas though. It's polarizing and FC should know better.

    I happen to like Ruffalo, but I don't like thinking politics when I see him sporting a watch for someone.

    seems like a cool idea but im not digging the "hybrid" name. couldve chose a classier name for a watch in this price range. (also talking about you, hublot)
