So, I have a dilemma. I like to wear a watch. Before smart watches, it was never anything fancy. In fact, my last dumb watch ( for a lack of a better term) was a $16.00 Target watch. But ever since I bought my first smart watches (Apple Watch & Moto 360 simultaneously) I've been pursuing the perfect smart watch (perfect for my needs, perfect for me). I want notifications and to be able to reply to them with the watch regardless of the app they come from. I want to be able to see what's on the screen whether I'm indoors or out. And although not a must have, it would be nice to make or take calls with the watch for those special occasions. Ah! And I must be able to use the watch to measure my transportation cycling (just current speed, average speed and total mileage is enough for me). I thought the Moto 360 with access to Google Fit was the solution. It wasn't. The total mileage using the watch was always wrong. And I mean 6 miles or more wrong. So I gave that one away. Then the Apple Watch. This one worked better (I own one iPhone and 3 Android phones). Mileage was accurate but I could never for the life of me remember to turn the cycling option on. Then I discovered Pebble smart watches and I fell in love. Unfortunately, I can't see them in dim light or read the screen indoors without my glasses. So I decided to give the Zen Watch 2 a try. Suffice it to say that during my bike ride today, I stopped to remove the Zen Watch and put my Pebble Time Steel back on.
I guess the solution here is for me to become a wearables engineer and create my own smart watch with my own requirements.
