Smartify your watch?

I have Instagram forcing ads for this thing down my throat at the minute and wanted to know what you guys think about this concept?

The company is Ganance and the device is called the Heir and the basic idea is you wear it underneath a conventional watch and it acts as a fitness tracker and sends information to your phone.

I get the idea and can see this being the perfect solution for some people (if it's actually good!)

but I don't think its for me, if I wanted a smart watch I think I would just dual wield 馃槀

My first concern was magnetism but checked their Insta and they have confirmed it's not magnetic.

Thoughts?

I think because the whole reason we love watches is because they are unconnected to anything but they are still powered by only our daily movement (or battery) and it's sole purpose is to tell the time but as a byproduct of us wearing them all the time, they hold memories. Putting that thing on the back of a watch is like a parasite on the belly of a shark 馃槀

Let鈥檚 see, I run 4 miles, stretch, do an hour workout, and walk the dog for 45 minutes, why do I need a device to tell me that?

If I wanted a watch that tracked my every move, I'd just wear a smart device, honestly. If I needed that for health reasons, I'd get the apple ultra as the sensors are undoubtedly better grade.

I wear "dumb" watches (you know what I mean lol) because I don't want to be tracked. I find that an immense source of stress. So what if I got 9,997 steps instead of 10,000? I'm still moving and doing what I need to do. I know if I work out hard by the way I'm sweating bullets. I don't care if my heart rate spiked to 160 or 155.

Unless, as I said, there's a medical reason to know that. Then Apple Ultra.

Yeah, would have thought the magnetic field from it wouldn't be great for owt that's not METAS.
