There was an unofficial poll here in the forums about the most useless meh purchase, and the Olio smartwatch was my vote. I didn’t need a fancy watch, or even a smartwatch, but the price seemed too good to pass up. As far as fancy watches go, I think it qualifies - it’s big, heavy and shiny, and it feels good to wear. As far as smartwatches go, it’s too smart for me as I can only use it for notifications, and I don’t really need a watch for the notifications I get. As far as watches go, it’s not great at keeping time unless it’s in sync with the paired smartphone - it runs fast, gaining about 20 seconds a day. It’s been stored in the box most of the time I’ve owned it, but I took it out and charged it up for this post. It still works, but it’s paired to an old smartphone I’m afraid of, so back into the box it will go (because Olio went out of business, and I can’t pair it to a new phone).
