Smartwatches are more of software and a chipset and little hardware. Also, those can last long time unlike a smartwatch that will get outdated soon. It's like how a a battery operated toy can be cheap but a simple looking painting can cost in minions

              Issues:
              Appalling battery life
              Useless without tethering to iPhone, excluding the majority of smart phone owners
              Smart watches still serve no actual purpose, they're a solution looking for a problem
              The new Garmin 255/955 are just so much better than Apple for fitness tracking and stats. Not to mention features, battery and push new tech.

                People complaining about the price ik it's very high for a smart watch, but there are people who spent 100,000$+ on watches

                  Like we heard a rumor of shapphire glass on apple devices and Zac Nelson aka Jerryrigeverything proven its ordinary glass not even latest gorrila glass from Corning.

Hell, even things like silencing of phone ringing by covering the watch display with hand becomes such handy feature it's gonna be hard moving to anything else without just that. Garmin latest solar models with touch look really nice, but I have doubts it'll work so well. Which is why I'm also hesitating dropping that much into a watch. And I have plenty of expensive mechanical watches that only tell time, but that was only thing I expected from them and I was fine with it, not so much if smartwatch ends up not being all that smart in the end... I may then just wear that mechanical watch...

                      Anonymous, 11 Jul 2022For all the people that complain about the price. If it&... moreThere are mechanical wristwatches for tens of thousands of dollars. Nobody in the watch community seems to complain about those prices. Tech is very different, it seems.

                        For all the people that complain about the price.

                        If it's too high, then the product is not for you thus no reason to complain, we can all move on.

                        Neither it is for me, I find smartwatches up to 200 euro already overpriced, let alone this price...

                          "Too God damn high" as Flossy would say.

                            Even with this price, you still can't get apple pro stand 😂

                              good old Apple jokes...they are targeting Garmin's sports enthusiasts fans..with what? Have they increased the battery life? Does it lasts 2 weeks? Does it have some solar power? You can get last year's 6 Pro Solar for 750$ now (or less). Does it compare to the Garmin Descent for divers?

                                    captain fokou, 11 Jul 2022Wtf. 900$? Are they going to use a bionic A16? I mean, they already have one of most capable chipsets in ANY smartwatch and maxed out models with stainless steel casings and fancy leather straps with stainless steel buckle already cost around $1500...
