    "This is my first time trying a Garmin smart watch. The Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire offers great activity tracker and even a GPS map of where i am. Garmin smart watches as definitely on the more costly side of the fence. I do like the all metal band."

    "Battery life for the Polar V800 is fantastic. I use it four to five times a week and only need to charge it once a month. But the designers surely didn't consider female users. The device is huge, cartoonishly huge, and sometimes impedes usage. I would not recommend it for people with small wrists. There are better options out there for women. "

    "I think you can do better, to be honest. This tracker isn't that great, and I have a lot of problems with the band. It broke after only a couple months!"

    "I love my Garmin!! I use this for training as well as when I am racing in a triathlon. It's great to know your pace when swimming, biking and running. I really like using it for open water swimming so that I know exactly what distance I am swimming to make sure I am training correctly. It's very easy to charge. It is also easy to pair with your smartphone and sync your data to the Garmin Connect app."

    "I tried the FINIS Swimsense and I wasn't super impressed. I purchased it mainly for my swimming, but the touted stroke analysis feature was more gimmick and didn't really work. It more or less turned into a glorified lap counter, but at a fully featured smart device price."
