Am I out of touch on the older prices, or is this thing actually cheaper than the outgoing titanium models? I don't think this is meant for me, but it's nice that people get something more than just case material for the extra cost.

Why would anyone order a 8th gen watch with ONLY 18 HOURS battery? Jesus people wake up! My Garmin has 34 DAYS battery life. Hours people. Everyone just as blind eyed every year. Complaining about battery life and still ordering a new one?
How many 33 day off the grid trips did you make this year? The watches charge quick, too. It's plenty.
