    "The Garmin Forerunner 920XT is absolutely amazing. I use it to track all my workouts, even swimming. It's also fairly priced, as it is a bit old. I highly recommend it. "

    "I am able to plan my routes much better with this product by measuring the results I get from one route to the next. I make it a game to beat the old numbers and this device shows you so much information that you'll know everything you're getting out of your workout. It's the perfect tool for fitness goal setting and even has a barometer, showing how deep, abundant, and possibly unnecessary amounts of information this watch could give you."

    "Fitbit Surge Fitness Superwatch is a smart watch that is available from Amazon for $210.00. This is a smart watch and fitness tracker combined. This has everything you could want in a fitness and activity tracker. There are a lot of quality issues with this watch. It seems there is a lot of trouble with the band coming off the watch. I don't think this fits the topic because of the quality issues."

    "Ok honestly it's hard for me to get past the brand but it's totally worth a shot. You'll save a lot of money with all the bells and whistles of a similar product. Give Garmin a chance for this price for sure. Sunlight readable! I never thought that was a big deal until I was at the pool all last summer with my daughter and couldn't see anything on my devices."

    "It seems that all fitness trackers have quirks of their own. Users either love them or hate them. This model is no different, and many users report steps not being counted right, or the product just not working after a while."

    "I like how this Pebble watch looks relative to some of their other offerings, but it is difficult to recommend Pebble products, as they are no longer supported under warranties due to the fact that the company is not operating anymore. As this watch seems to have some issues with reliability, this could be a pretty severe issue. I would have to suggest a different brand due to some of these glaring issues. "
