Update 2: after much spreadsheetage and hand-wringing I am about to pick up a Garmin Venu 2s (yes, I have small wrists)
It feels ridiculous to spend almost as much on a watch as a phone, but there we are. My crypto money will pay for it, I guess...
Update 3: this is a seriously impressive bit of kit. This is a very detailed review for anyone else thinking of getting one:
@dajbelshaw mmm it looks good (and has more music storage than my current phone haha), but i might be biased cause i could use an app that would just give me workout plans and i'm not confident enough to just look for one in play store
@dajbelshaw I rarely covet gadgets any more — and love using my old wristwatch that's older than — but that Garmin just shot to the top of my covet-list.
@fgraver I felt a bit bad about spending £350 on a watch, but it's already increasing my motivation levels around exercise and general health.
@dajbelshaw I had a really good string using Endomondo on my phone for tracking walking, cycling and x-c skiing, but have never found a replacement after it was retired. And that option never gave me an option to track pulse, etc. This Garmin certainly looks like it would enable me to track the way I used to, and much, much more...
If it's *also* a good watch then that price is not unreasonable.
