My digital watch, a Pebble, stopped working. The company who maintained it got bought by Garmin. Garmin broke my digital watch πŸ™ƒ.

Mine is a Casio I’ve had for about 30 years, I’m pretty sure it’s mine by now

Nope, once you die, it belongs to someone else.

I had trouble with some watchfaces. Couldn't get my favs working consistently.

The only problem with your story is that Garmin didn't buy any Pebble assets.
