Default Thermostats with fan speed programming?

I've just purchased a new Goodman heat pump and Air Handler. The air handler has a ECM fan motor and the brochure says the fan speed is variable. I'm guessing with the Comfortnet thermostat which costs about 379 dollars. It is a touchscreen etc..

I am wondering if there is a plain non-touchscreen thermostat I could buy with same programming capabilities as the Comfortnet thermostats costing alot less than 379 bucks.

Does anyone have any info to share?

Appreciate the help.

Taking a small sample of these prices

half the 'stats should cost between $36 and $94.

I think the furnace decides what fan speed to use, independent of the 'stat and based on several variables. It may use a small digital or analog computer.

The 'stat just calls for heat.
