If you're looking for a gadget that knows more about you than you know about yourself, this is it. The list of sensors on these watches include GPS, glonass, galileo, heart rate, barometric altimeter, compass, gyroscope, accelerometer, thermometer, and pulse ox. All those sound super cool. super nerdy, and super all up in your business. Not only do these watches have a zillion sensors, they also handle your music, calendar, texts, have the ability to up your golf game (seriously), and even gives you a way to send an alert if you've fallen and can't get up.

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

When one of our researchers for this guide wanted to get a fitness tracker, Garmin is what she went with. In large part because Garmin seems to do one of the best jobs handling the privacy and security of all the personal data fitness trackers collect of the many options out there. Garmin doesn't share or sell your data for marketing purposes. And it de-identifies the data it collects so it's (hopefully) not personally identifiable. We say hopefully because, depending on the kind of data, it’s been found to be pretty easy to de-anonymize these data sets and track down an individual’s patterns, especially with location data. Is our researcher happy with her decision so far? Yes, she is. Although it does make her a little nervous that she now leaves her phone's Bluetooth on all the time.

Ransomware attack on Garmin thought to be the work of 'Evil Corp'
The Guardian
A ransomware attack that took the GPS and smartwatch business Garmin entirely offline for more than three days is believed to have been carried out by a Russian cybercriminal gang which calls itself “Evil Corp”. Garmin began to restore services to customers on Monday morning, after being held hostage for a reported ransom of $10m, although some services were still operating with limited functionality.
