    "I'm really glad Casio decided to introduce their brand name and reputation into the smartwatches market. The Casio WSD-F10 is specifically designed as the do it all, durable, smart outwatch. Built with the military standard for durability, Casio is really gearing this watch towards people like me. I have a few G-Shocks that have stood the test of time throughout all my outdoor activities and adventures, so I was really looking forward to giving the WSD-F10 a shot. When I got the package and opened it up I was pleasantly surprised to see and feel this watch in hand. It definitely feels like a classic G-Shock Casio. It had all the features that most standard smartwatches have so I was happy with that. Now keep in mind, this is a big watch. It's 56.4mm on the case. So if you have tiny wrist, I'd avoid this because it's really big! Aside from that I would say that the water resistant capabilities seem a bit on the short end at only 50m. To be honest, I'm slightly disappointed by that especially given the price tag. Overall I think it's a good introduction piece by Casio into the smartwatches market, but I'm looking forward to their updates as I'm sure they'll improve on that where they fell short here."

    "This watch is very rugged looking and much larger than traditional watches yet looks much more appealing than the apple watch. However, the watch does not match up with what is available for IOS. I also found the battery life not to be to my liking. Although I enjoy its rugged good looks the funtionality of the watch needs to be improved."

    "The Garmin vivoactive is basically an an activity tracker with a few smartwatch features. It's not a tri watch, but can collect some tri data. The workout trackers do what they're supposed to -Tracks steps, sleep, etc like an activity tracker should -Uploads workouts to Garmin Connect. Some limits are that there is no multisport (triathlon) mode to click a button for the next sport -No Open Water Swim mode. "
