    "Almost impossible to see the screen in the daylight, which is pretty important for a GPS watch. It is compatible with my Galaxy phone which I enjoy, but I wouldn't recommend this product."

    "Play harder, work smarter, live better with vívoactive. Built-in sports apps keep you active while smart notifications allow you to stay in contact with pressing work matters — all so you can keep your life in balance. The high-resolution, color touchscreen stays readable in direct sunlight, so you can view your stats when you step out of the office for a run. The ultra-thin profile — 8 mm — is comfortable to wear all day and can easily transition from office to golf course. You won’t have to worry about vívoactive keeping up with your active days. The rechargeable battery lasts through all your activities with up to 3 weeks5 in watch/activity-tracking mode or up to 10 hours using GPS"

    "Stopwatch feature on this watch sometimes fails. If you are avid sporter..or even someone trying to get fit..this can be a headache. GPS sometimes goes out on unit.. Connector poorly designed and it doesn't recharge well. Other than that it's great. Maybe you want to go with another option. There are TONS of other watches out there for this."

    "This is not a very good solution for an affordable GPS watch. It is quite expensive, and only rates a 3.1 out of 5 stars. It has a lot of good features, but there are alot more watches that are more affordable than this one. "

    "The Samsung Gear Fit2 does all the things you'd expect a smartwatch to do (tracking steps, sleep, calories) and more. It integrates seamlessly with apps like My Fitness Pal. It's more accurate than the Fitbit, so to me, this is the best choice in this category."

    "This is a reasonably priced watch that also has GPS built in. The price point isn't too bad, just over $200. The watch also has other features geared mainly towards health and fitness. This would be a good unit if you are into running and want to know the distance covered. The only concern I would have is the possibility of your privacy being invaded or sold. Overall this is a good option for those wanting a GPS watch, I feel that it is worth looking into if your in the market for this type of device. "
