Photo from October 12, 2014 I just looked at my watch and it’s nearly approaching 10:00 a.m. My watch is supposed to be much more than that. That’s why I bought it. My watch was supposed to do all sorts of things for me. It was supposed to track my activity, tell me when I've been sedentary too long, tell me how many calories I've burned in a day, what my heart rate [...]
