Yowsa Chris! Damned close call for all concerned, very glad to hear you all survived. Hypothermia is nothing to sneeze at, and it can happen remarkably quickly. Good to hear you got the watch back, but as you say it would have been a small price to pay for both of you surviving. At any rate I'm very happy you both are OK. Things can be replaced, people not so much.

This may not be everyones cup of Tea but it tickles my geekeness. Made from a 4GB Microdrive by HDD Watches of France, even the strap has a circuit board design. 

we tend to forget there is more to design than designing.

My first Apple Watch had in Pseudo-NASA jargon a "catastrophic component separation failure".

During its repair return process I neglected take a photo, however it look somewhat like this other tragic (except my was a face plat separation):

Anyway the good news is unit was replaced and in the process I elected for a very modest amount to upgrade to:

Except stupidly I restored to old watch's settings and in doing so erased the Nike clock face [:\'(]

I think it was the 30+C heat at the Australian Scandinavian Christmas market that weakened the glue bonding the display to the body!

Thank you. It's something a bit different from what I use to wear (Hulk ;-) ).
