The Quest for a Simple Smartwatch

The author shared their experience of looking for a simple smartwatch replacement after their old one broke. They only wanted basic features like phone notifications, step counting, and a long battery life, without all the extra fluff. However, they struggled to find a watch that met their criteria and ended up settling for a Garmin Forerunner 55 designed for runners. They had to disable many fitness tracking features they didn’t need and may have paid extra for them. The author also mentioned the fun surprise of discovering custom watch faces. They hope that companies will provide simpler smartwatches in the future.
