same.

I don’t really like smartwatches…

I don’t need a smartwatch :flushed:

I prefer traditional watches because I’m very clumsy and would break a smart watch in less than a day if I had one :eyes::sparkles::sweat_smile::joy:

I prefer my phone tbh. If I had a smartwatch I would either break it or lose it in less than a day. :joy:

I once owned a Fitbit Blaze but it didn’t work well with notifications to my phone soooooo that didn’t last long :timer_clock:

I noticed lots of people saying they have no need for one. Do you think this is because you don’t have much of a reason to track your steps or heart rate? Or what do you feel the reason for not needing one would be? Just curious :thinking:

I’m curious to see what the new Fitbit will look like once Google releases a new model. :astonished:

I don’t need a smart watch to know that I’m too lazy :eyes::sparkles::joy:
And my friend had one and it didn’t show correct numbers at all… it would only add a few steps when she played tennis but add at least 10 steps when she just moved her arm… :eyes::sparkles:

I would say Apple is the best out of all of them. It’s the only one I’ve used but it comes in handy when I need to text in class or I was irresponsible and using it to cheat on tests.

First off I have plenty of different electronics, second I have a device that “calculates steps” but all I have to do is swing my arms a bunch and it will add steps like I walked. I have no use in knowing what my heart rate is :woman_shrugging:t2: I’m ether breathing or not :joy::joy:

:astonished: @MG_789 What about the possibility of making calls and using third-party apps to send messages with it? No features on the watches are compelling enough to want one? Curious to see if these watches are more of an old person thing for people who need to start counting steps/heart rate or if it’s also good for communication instead of having to rely on your phone :thinking:

I have a phone for that I guess it could be helpful for really specific situations, but I just don’t need not want one :woman_shrugging:t2:

I feel like tracking your steps or heart rate is like keeping a diary or journal. You do it for like a week, maybe two, then you forget one day and it ruins your whole rhythm. But wasting a diary or journal is much less costly than a smart watch, and I don’t have much disposable income right now, so I don’t really see the need for one
