All the reviews Ive come across make it look like it's basically a square version of the fenix 3 with a smaller battery. Anyone get one yet and have an opinion on it? I'm debating between this and the Fitbit surge....

Wife gives birth next week. 8 weeks off, because she's having a C-section, with zero pay. I don't know if she deserves full pay for that duration but the fact that she gets nothing is pretty messed up. And before you say she has a shitty job, she's an audiologist for a very reputable ENT....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

A big chunk of military spending goes to projects classified as military but they really aren't, so that number posted is extremely bloated. I think it was Rand Paul that brought this up a couple times when he was campaigning and everyone acted like he was insane for not wanting to increase military...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
