I tried out my new Tree Ring watch today while running in the hills. The watch lacked just about every function one could find in an Apple watch. However that ended up working in my favor as I was able to enjoy the scenery as opposed to looking at a screen on my wrist. It kept great time, informing me that I was late for dinner, which was expected given the scenery.
Of course I did have a phone in my pocket so I was able to text my wife that I would be late.
