Good design limits choice

Fitbit Charge 3, my fitness tracker, is a particularly well designed device.

The device itself, though, is very limiting. Here are a bunch of things I cannot do on it:
– Adjust the time for an alarm
– Change the display theme
– Upgrade the device’s software version
– Change location for my weather tracking
– Access historical fitness data

It’s settings menu has merely 4 configurations. Not 40.

Good design eliminates choice that you are not likely to miss.
