I could write an app for my high-tech smartwatch that posts my heart rate to my server. I could even automate informing an healthcareservice if my heart rate is critical.

But I cant. Because only apps from the manufacturer are allowed to access the internet and run in the background.

Sure, I could go with pinetime - but the hardware and software is just inferior. No surprise, given my smartwatch is made by a company lately bought by Alphabet for many billions.

Proprietary silos.
