The watch does have GPS, but it isn't active all the time. AFAIK, you couldn't detect its location if you lost it, and no one could use it to track your location.

Part of the battery life is not having GPS active constantly. Outdoor activities, like running, will show your track on the map and color coordinate it with your speed. You can also track heart rate and elevation changes.

Believe it or not I'd like a trackable version. Prob never happen cause then inreach users would get pissed.

I'm always amazed at gps. When I found out it worked on phones and tablets in the middle of nowhere with no cell service I got a cheap tablet and started loading it with maps.

She ain't fat, bruh... She just a lil' thick.
I spend very little time at my desk. A couple of 15-30 minute sessions a week. I would almost always stand. I have a couple projects coming up that will require a couple hours at a time so I don't want to commit to a standing only desk. Because I know I won't want to stand for multiple hours on end so I figure the adjustable is the best bet for me.

Food for thought...
Thanks to those gps watches and apps, our adversaries have already mapped most of the US interests throughout the world.
I listened to a podcast with a former coldwar CIA spy and he said the Russians didn't really do a lot of mapping of the USA. He said the Russian spies would get off the plane, go to the nearest airport kiosk and just buy a detailed road map of the USA lol Whereas we had to spend millions of dollars on spy planes to fly over Russia to take pics and map out their country.

That reminds me of the Carlos Mencia joke where he talks about the US spending millions of dollars to invent a pen that would work in outer space (zero gravity). The Russians just decided to use a pencil.

I wonder who Carlos Mencia stole that joke from?

In general yes, but we have lots of small locations all over that are not mapped and/or have satellite manipulation imagery.

Most importantly those maps don't show activity/resources/force size that the watches were revealing.... you can bet China has a good ideal and shares with USSR.

Coming from him figures it's fake news/urban myth. I've heard this dispelled before on a podcast lol
