I think NVME with the U.2 connector in 2.5" format is establishing itself moreso as the backplaned PCIE-connected flash format of choice.
There's a couple of M.2-to-AIC adapters out there but HP is pitching these more as a workstation product rather than a server one. There's compatibility questions over lane division/pcie switching as well.

Also worth a read on STH is the shocking QC issues found by Patrick https://www.servethehome.com/ubiquiti-edgeswitch-es-16-xg-review-quality-control-absent/
You wouldn't take an apple watch diving, it'd be no use. I take my tmx-upgraded luna and an old Vytec DS as a backup bottom timer with the plan on a slate. Never got the point of "diving watches" other than for posing. Get a computer, get a backup.
Unless you're monumentally cheap, I don't know why anyone wouldn't stump up the extra £64 to get, for example, a 480GB Crucial BX200 SSD. No spinny bits to get damaged and significantly better performance. The days of the mobile HDD are done.
Even then, 500GB is a joke, WD has a 1TB 7mm Blue drive and Seagate has a 2TB two-platter drive that's still only 7mm.
