    "This is a great competitive product that can rival that of the apple offerings. It has a lot of gizmos and gadgets, and it has a great look to it. I had some issues with connecting to other devices, but I would still recommend it to others."

    "The Huawei Watch 2 Sport Smartwatch is pricy but so, so worth it. I have not found a better smartwatch for fitness purposes. The most useful feature about this watch, for me, is its heart rate monitor. I love it."

    "In terms of GPS tracking you will not find a better watch on the market. The software is accurate, easy to use and has helped me track my workouts at an entirely new level. I’m also a large male so I don’t mind the huge size at all. My wife would look very silly wearing it, but since we train together she can get a lot of the same GPS benefits. This is a training tool more than just a glorified step counter."

    "This watch has also been a favorite of mine. I actually borrowed this watch from a friend to try out because I have a Forerunner one and I can't see too many differences. This one does just a good of job as mine so I would recommend this one as well if you can find a better deal on it :)"

    "I'm going to be honest. I was hesitant to give the Fitbit Alta HR a whirl due to some hiccups with their earlier (extremely pricey) fitness trackers. I will say this, the Alta is the one that Fitbit should have waited for! This thing is not just a fitness tracker, it's a smartwatch, it's an all in one, it's what every single tracking smartwatch should aim to be."
