    How do you pay for your plan?

    Do you guys seriously not do TCO calculations automatically in your head when you're looking at stuff?

    I do, but I don't always select the lowest one. I'll explain over beers next time. I have reasons that work for me.

    I went through this recently and still haven't figured out a solution. I returned my Ultra as well because I just wasn't using it.

    For watches I like my regular mechanical watches so don't see myself wearing an Apple Watch/Garmin watch long term. What I want is something somewhat discrete or simple enough (not a watch) that I can use on my other wrist for fitness tracking purposes alone. Any suggestions on what I should be looking at?

    Ah, you returned it? Interesting. I think itís because you were doing it wrong. You need to be a complete tool, like yours truly, and double-wrist it.

    Haha the one day I tried the whole double fisting thing I did feel like a proper tool so just couldn't do it.

    With the Garmin connect app, is there a way to view a route of your daily activity?

    Like if you went hiking or skiing, how do you view route?

    Open the app, hit more, hit activities, select activity, see map (if you had GPS on)

    Or like 98% of people connect it to Strava and do it through there

    Where do you toggle GPS on/off?

    Under activity, all have no data.

    Although watch has been warn for several days worth of activities.

    Do I have to have live track turned to auto start?

    Which watch are you using? Sounds like you don’t have your GPS on for activity tracking (or selecting non tracking activities). Are you actively starting an activity (top right button)
