I Now Have Fitbit Ionic On My Wrist — It Is Different To A Garmin!

So, in exactly a week since I discovered that the altimeter on the Vivoactive 3 had packed up, I now have a brand new Fitbit Ionic (Charcoal),
It is NOT a Garmin. It is different — in many ways. The screen interface is SLOW … SLOW … VERY SLOW … molasses slow.
I know I have dainty wrists. The ‘standard’ band worked but I decided to go with the small to shave away the extra bulk. Getting the new straps to stay on was HARDER than they lead you to believe.
Updating the software and having it all set up, internally, over Wi-Fi, took about 30-minutes. They estimated 16 minutes. It was OK.
Not sure I get as much data as I did with Garmin. Definitely so on the watch.
Changed the watch face. Couldn’t resist the one with Moon Phase and sunrise/sunset + moon rise/moon set indications.
So, far … so good, I think.
I am NOT totally wowed. It will suffice. That is sad.
