    Re: I HAD NO INTEREST IN SMART WATCHES .....SO I THOUGHT

    had the apple watch, had the ticwatch pro.... they both went to the bay. I now just use the fitbit when im mountainbiking. By all mean, smartwatches are cool and all with all the features, what bothers me most is the notifications (i know i can disable the notifications, but having a smartwatch and not have notifications defeats the purpose....and...and ... the battery life just sucks.... i keep on forgetting to recharge them all the time.).. Anyhow, to each their own!!!! Im done with smartwatches as daily wear.

    Depends what you're wearing. My ZeTime gets 6+ days of battery life. It gets a once weekly charge, on the weekend, at home. And I have all my notifications, heart rate monitor, etc, turned on.
    Before you ask, yes, I've seen -45 degrees (both Celsius and Fahrenheit)

    Re: I HAD NO INTEREST IN SMART WATCHES .....SO I THOUGHT

    I have owned three Apple Watches. I never really bonded with the first two for pretty much the same reasons: I didn't care for having to move my wrist to wake up the watch every time I needed to get the time, I never could decide on a watch face that appealed to me, and the strap allowed the watch to rotate on my wrist. Well, fast forward to yesterday when I traded in my Series 4 for a Series 5, and purchased a UAG velcro closure strap. World of difference. First of all, I can see the time whenever I wan't because I use it in the always on mode. Secondly, the Infograph Modular watch face seems to have solved my watch face issues by finding a good balance between displaying time, information, and icons to access commonly used apps. Finally, the strap is super comfortable. It keeps the watch sitting flat on my wrist without rotating. I'm thinking my Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean might be a little more lonely than he's used to.

    I so relate to this!!!

    Grabbed a Garmin Instinct in March on a whim to see if it was a better idea than Fitbit plus traditional watch. Since then it’s the watch I wear 90 percent of the time. GPS, HR tracking, exercise tracking, step counting and all the goodies that you find on any G-Shock, plus it’s quite hard to kill by design. I also like that it’s not trying to be “gadget jewelry”. It’s a tool and looks that way which suits me.

    I have no need for any other digital watches now and I’ve sold off some of my more expensive traditional watches. The ones left in the box I really enjoy wearing now when I decide to take off the Garmin.

    ranger, what's your experience with the Garmin's battery life? I'm waffling on going back to a smart watch and have been giving this model a hard look.
