Yep they bought Pebble and then cut the loyal users adrift...
I've tried a few brands so far.
The original NIKE running watch with the brilliant USB plug built into the strap - no stupid proprietary cable required - brilliant.
3 Pebbles - great for what they did, shame Fitbit binned it off.
Now on my second Garmin Fenix - a 6S - absolutely brilliant. I only have the Fenix as it comes in a small watch face that the Forerunner is (or at least was at time of purchase) missing.
