    "First off, this watch is amazing. It is great at doing what it does, and I am able to get great workouts thanks to it. It's a little pricey, but I think it is worth the price honestly. I have been having better workouts since I got it. It helps keep my heartrate at a high level to make sure I get the most out of my workouts. The gps too is great for mapping out your workouts, and if you are someone who like to exercise somewhere far of the beaten path, this will help keep you from getting lost. The watch looks nice too, and I almost always have it on. "

    "This is the perfect one for runners and for serious workouts! I know a lot of people who are just trying to get their steps in I honestly don't think you need all this just for your steps. But if you're running and doing some serious training then this is the one to get. I actually prefer this one even though I'm not a runner or anything but I like the larger display and I like to have a GPS and heart rate monitor."

    "This little watch is way better than owning a FitBit watch or the ever popular Apple watch. The voice and gesture controls are pretty accurate and the additional features are also a good catch for the watch. If you live an active lifestyle this watch is a good idea to own as the GPS tracker and accelerometer can help you keep track of your daily activities all the while still being productive. The bluetooth addition is especially helpful since you can connect your phone and headphones to the watch to stream music and voice. "

    "I got this tracker to make it easier to find my dog Peanut who keeps running away. I was able to get it set up just fine, but the range is not great. The first time he ran away, I was able to find him, but I still had to drive around randomly trying to pick up a signal before I found him. The second time he ran away, we were not so fortunate. It's been a week, and I still can't get the GPS tracker to work. I hope I can find him soon!"

    "Ok so I had a gizmo for my daughter that broke. I bought this as a replacement. My personal comparisons on the things that both devices have: Gizmo she had to wear like a watch. This one can be put in her backpack or clipped to her zipper on her jacket. Gizmo gave me a one block radius for pinpointing her location. This one gives me a 3 to 4 block radius for pinpointing her location. So not as small of an area but still good. Gizmo signal seems stronger. This one I would lose signal a little or sometimes it would take a little longer to find location. That's all I can compare the two on as the gizmo had calling and texting features that this one does not. All in all it is a good GPS system but be aware of it's quirks."
