Undependable. Exaggerates and embellishes. Bossy. Rather than using the ugly characteristic of “liar”as our reference, let’s just use the initial “G”.
A gift really, at first, I have become a bit callous to G’s reality. Pushy on one side, and when I aim to fulfill direction, overcompensation is the result. It is like having a relationship with a chameleon. For me, anyway. There is no anchor, no fact. How can one have a true relationship with an ever changing partner?
I can feel in my bones that I am being prodded. And judged. Am I sleeping too many hours? Too lazy? It is my overwhelming desire to keep G happy. But can G really be so or is it just manipulation? Where is the truth here?
G’s bigger footprint, interacting with 21st century tools is just not that great either. Creating our conversation was just such a chore. Things are not changing in this venue, and I get false feedback.
Above is an image of my new Garmin. A minimal millennial. Less is supposed to be more. On average, on some measurements it is a pretty consistent 20 percent more. I know my run is four miles, and it measures the same five miles every day. With stair climbing, who knows? Sometimes when I am actively climbing to the second floor of the barn just to make Garmin happy, it refuses to record my work. What does it use, barometric pressure?
I love that when in the proximity of my phone, I can read email on the watch. And know the weather. It could do more than I ask of it in this way, music, for one.
Is it worth having? Yes. Does it work well? Kind of, if you know your own statistics. It DOES tell the time. I think devices like this are why some are saying that people are starting to wear watches again.
