I have no use for a smart watch but at their price of $25 + S&H it goes into the "why not ?" category.
@PublicNuisance I used to think this way too, and I got an Amazfit Bip last year to ensure that I did more exercise because of the COVID related isolation. It worked for that purpose at least, motivation-wise.
At my company's 2019 Xmas party, we were all gifted Fitbit smartwatches. The step count is useless, it's based on arm movements. I suspect it would be the same for the PineTime. But what I liked is the heart rate monitor for when I do sports. When you're middle-aged like me, it's prudent not to go above the recommended HR.
I stopped wearing my Fitbit when the Google buyout was confirmed.
