    "There needs to be a battery or watch that uses the same kind of battery requirement as a normal wristwatch. This is more of a pain than if you carried one of those old mobile phones around in the 90's.."

    "I have always loved the Garmin brand and this led me to purchase the Garmin vívoactive 3. I have only used this watch a little but I stopped as I did not like giving up that much information. It was a nice watch though."

    "It seems I can only buy the watch from third party sellers. It is fairly well reviewed but perhaps not the best and greatest of fitness watches on the market."

    "Excellent solution because it is the intelligent accessory that helps you to keep up with your daily activities (tracking steps, distance, calories burned, scaled floors and active minutes, heart rate monitor and sleep patterns that are displayed on the screen). In my particular case it helps me promote my healthier and more balanced lifestyle, while helping me to keep up with call notifications and wirelessly synchronize statistics with my smartphone. "

    "It attaches well to the Fitbit. It's small and easy to conceal. Unfortunately, the tracker itself isn't the greatest because it randomly restarts and drains the battery, making it impossible to keep track of my progress."

    "Based on the product reviews that the product received, in my preferences it is not acceptable, it should be well above 4 or an even 4 out of 5 star rating. Even if I have heard about this brand before, I would highly recommend looking for other alternatives when it comes to Fitness watches."

    "The Misfit Shine 2 has far surpassed my expectations. They seem to have fixed all the issues with the band from the original Misfit. I'd say that in it's price point it is one of the best fitness trackers you can get. However, it doesn't exactly fit in the fitness watch category since it does not have a watch face."

    "The Garmin Fenix 5 has really helped me reach my fitness goals. I have used the watched to track how many miles I run daily and to keep track of what I do at the gym. Whenever I go out on a bike ride I make sure to take it with me. I organize what type of exercises I will do on a given day with it. Yesterday I did cardio all day and the watch kept a record of what I had done with no problems. I plan on using it for a very long time."
