Re: Still not a patch on a Garmin.

They've always had a range, from basic pedometers all the way up; I bought one in 2015 that has GPS built in, no need for a phone other than to sync.

Of course, it's completely useless now. Android's bad enough but who the *fuck* would give google access to their heart-rate and all the myriad other stuff that can be gleaned from a smart watch. I asked them what they were going to do about having junked my $350 watch but all I got was,"google are really quite lovely and there's no way they'd ever abuse your data." Lying bastards ...
