    "I bought this because I needed a bright and large display since I only run while its dark out. A little pricey but I think it's worth it. It could use a better and more flexible band."

    "The Garmin vívoactive 3 is s great little smartwatch and fitness tracker all in one. It's sleek and easily connects to your mobile devices. It also features GPS tracking technology too. It's a great watch, although pricier than standard fitness trackers, but comes with more useful functions."

    "The Garmin Vivoactive is a little bit too bulky and I feel like that's the only complaint that I really have about the product. I do like that the screen is easy to read though and it seems like there are always accurate results when using this product."

    "Retailing for around $250-300 at various stores / online vendors, the Fitbit Ionic is one very expensive investment indeed. However, you do get what you pay for, as this is an extremely high-quality product. It has every feature you'd expect from less expensive FitBit products, such as calorie trackers and pulse detectors, but with features you'd expect from a smartphone, such as the ability to download apps and a full GPS for easy navigation wherever you are. The build quality is so much sturdier than a normal FitBit too, and its battery when new lasts for an astounding four days! If you have deep enough products to afford it, this is an excellent product of the highest caliber."

    "My friend got the Fitbit Alta HR and now has a problem, she won't shut up about it. She is in love with this thing. It looks really nice and it packages a lot of good options. My personal problem is probably the biggest selling point. The Alta HR is really slim, it just looks weird on my large frame. I tried it and it's comfortable, but it's just not my aesthetic style."

    "I thought I was getting a great deal on this smartwatch since it has so many features and I have to say that I would have paid more if I knew I would like it this much. I swim with this on, do gardening and take hikes and not one time was it uncomfortable or shown any wear in the 6 months that I've had it."
