  1. I’m contemplating the same thing. I really haven’t used my Apple Watch the way it’s advertised. Recently I’ve taken up running again though and looking at keeping it only for the fitness. Did you switch to a different smart watch or just go to a “watch”?

    1. Andrew, good question.

      For me, I have switched back to a traditional watch. I have always been a bit of watch collector and have gotten back into lately.

      That being said, I do see myself getting back into technology wearables when I feel that they have calue to add. Whether that been even more health tracking/benefits, or something we can’t even quite imagine yet… like what a true visual (Apple Glasses or AR) could possibly deliver.

    1. Thanks, Angie… appreciate the kind words.

      One thing I like about the Fitbit is that it is simple. It doesn’t try to do too much and the display is simple as well.

  2. I love my Apple Watch 3. Never thought I would say it, but closing those annoying rings every day has helped me get fitter than I’ve been in years.

    I also don’t have to rummage for my iPhone every time there’s a call or text. Just a quick glimpse at my Apple Watch and ignore if I wish…
