I am looking to get a smart watch in the next day or two. If you have any comments, good or bad about brand, model, ease of use, connectivity, etc I would apprediate your opinion.


Have a great day of boating

Think a lot depend on what kind of phone you have. Wife has apple phone & watch & is very happy.

Son has a Garmin watch that he says is great.

I got an Apple iWatch for Christmas a couple of years ago . . . I have only worn it a few times since then . . . not sure of the value-add . . . but it is a great gimmick.

Setup was a breeze, a well-trained house pet could do it.

I also have the iWatch. Easy to set up. I love it. Keeps track of my steps, great if you are using Apples directions on the phone. The watch vibrates when you need to turn. I love that when in a strange city, lots of traffic and cant look at the phone.

Depends on what you want it for. I run Garmin watches because I want the physical conditioning aspect of the watch over the other features.

I have a Fitbit Sense the wife got me for Xmas. Keeps great time wink

Ok, it also counts steps, stairs and my heartbeats. One thing it's REALLY good at is telling me "You Haven't Set Up Your Wallet Yet".

Nope, and probably never will. I know I can use it as a phone too. And probably never will, since it takes 'a wallet'...

The word "subscription"gunner2 is really fighting hard for the #1spot on my list of least favorite words these days.

You need to find a smart watch that does engraving.
