Friday Open Thread: Are running/GPS smartwatches worth the money?

When the Apple Watch first went on sale, I thought it was a luxury toy. Now, I seem them everywhere (including my own wrist!). But, these things cost upwards of $400, while other brands like Garmin GPS smartwatches also cost in the range of $350 or so. I certainly get some use out of mine, but I always wonder if it’s really worth what I paid for it. What do you think? — Terrell
