One thing I will give Fitbit (also Withings) a ton of credit for: switching the Sense (or Steel HR) between phones (even Android to iPhone) is relatively painless ...instead of the Apple Watch’s two hour reset and repair ordeal.

Grammar, like language itself, if a fundamentally heroic act. Creating order where no order exists. Rolling the rock of discourse up the hill of meaning only to know it will roll back down again. This is why tweets should be editable. Because Camus.

The reason I make so many typos in tweets is because I know some people want to point them out so they can have something that makes them feel like they have some sense of control over a fundamentally meaningless, arbitrary, and uncaring universe.

Yeah I would do the same but I am terrified of interrupting a firmware update. Given the level of fit and finish in the software all far, feels like a higher than usual chance of bricking.

I know it will never happen but if Apple ever just felt like trolling, it could make Apple Watch nominally compatible with Android in some way — just to thumb its nose at Google. Come on Apple, think of the morale boost you would get from the lulz.

My naive hope was the firmware update would help with the many bugs cited in our review of the Fitbit Sense. ....I may never find out at this rate lol.

As dire as the state of Wear OS is, I am honestly not clear what Google thinks it needs to buy here. It’s supposed to be for hardware, but... if you can’t match this in house, not sure buying Fitbit is going to get you there. Something about two turkeys making an eagle I guess.

Fitbit Sense is hardware fine and all and I like not charging every day, but this software experience is pretty not great overall. Not sure if this firmware is ever going to take, been 60 minutes into an “over 20 minute” update to get 25% there (over Bluetooth but still)

Nope, but I wouldn’t argue with somebody who said they did. I imagine the instant wake feature isn’t free.
