Stop using Microsoft windows and other Microsoft products will be a good start
Well if u use the same password for everything you are pretty stupid and you will get caught out hack or not. It’s very limited to what info Garmin takes.
The ransomware hack on garmin was pretty bad I agree. Certainly makes you think twice. However I think they've gotten lucky in that this strain of ransomware only encrypted their files and didn't also steal them. One would hope they use this experience to ensure they are better protected in future. With all that in mind I still think the Garmin sports watches are the best available. Any other company could be hacked just as easily (unless you have some insider knowledge into their computer security and know its up to scratch)
Garmin was hacked not long ago and few apps stopped working ,for that price I'm expecting better service, any xioami will do better,https://cointelegraph.com/news/garmin-coming-back-online-after-hack-was-10m-crypto-ransom-paid
Easy to underestimate what hackers can do with personal details. Especially if people have the same password on multiple accounts
