Yes.

Default Agreed

Absolutely right.
If you don't have time to manage your devices because you're continuously bringing in strategies or researching in science..then maybe you need..otherwise you can do the following:

1.All the companies have instruction manual in the box. That makes it easier for DIY...
2.Or simply go for watches by newbies like TeknoAVR or even Huawei..

The watches that these companies make are absolutely easy and simple to use.
I have one from TeknoAVR , its called HiTime 2. Its fabulous.
you can check out Youtube for the same

LOL, I'm thinking about going back to a flip phone. Getting sick of HAVING to agree to the crazy terms and conditions and lack of privacy policies.

And how many times a week are you asked to agree to TERMS & CONDITIONS? Enough to make you want to go back to a dumb phone? Exaggerate much?

If you don't install any new apps you don't have to agree to anything. If you don't use data you don't have to agree to anything, the only thing in and out are phone calls and text messages. And you still would have a point and shoot camera in your pocket better than any $200 model of 10 years ago from Canon or Polaroid. And a calculator, and an alarm clock, and a stop watch, and a notebook, and a calendar, and and and...

Paranoid much?

A) IF you let it, sure.
B) And WHO is tracking you, Mr Paranoid? Google? That's actually a cool feature if you'd take off the tin foil hat and try it.
"Ok Google, Navigate home" *Navigating....
"Ok Google, show me hardware stores near me" *Ba-ding, here you go....
Phone to me: "You have an appointment in Scottsdale in 20 minutes. Traffic is heavy, you should leave 10 minutes early."

Google uses this info to help you. It's true. It's not nefarious. Google MAY share this info with 3rd party advertisers AFTER IT ANONYMIZES THE DATA so no personal info is handed to 3rd parties.
Google does not share this info with Law Enforcement.

Of course, as I said in A, you can turn ALL THIS OFF if it really scares you...

Of course I have kids. Paranoid, no Knowledgeable. Yes. I WROTE much of the software that does it.
Now if you think that datalogging your every move and desire is OK, then just go ahead and keep it up. As the quote goes.
"If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him."
Data is power. But not yours.
