    "I have an iPhone 7, so I was not sure if the Apple Watch Series 3 would be compatible at first. Thankfully, it is. I love being able to still have all my phone capabilities even when my phone is not right by me. I am so impressed with this that I am going to get one for my wife for her birthday. She is going to enjoy being able to take the kids to the water park and not have to take off her watch like she has to right now."

    "What I love about this watch is that it's waterproof. When I'm running outside and it starts to rain, I don't have to worry that the smartwatch will be damaged. I can keep exercising and meet my goals. Also love the personal coaching!"

    "I wanted a wearable fitness tracker that I could sync with my Android device. The Ticwatch E comes in under 200 bucks and looks pretty sporty (though not fit for the boardroom). It's comfortable too! A good buy overall. "

    "Vastly overpriced for what it does. I got this because I do rock-climbing, and wanted an outdoorsy watch that I could use to control my phone, call 911, etc, even if my hands were tied. It’s fine – does everything I want it to – but it’s not especially better than a $200 smartwatch, and doesn’t seem much sturdier. The water resistance would be good if I were a swimmer, I just don’t need it. One big concern I have is that Casio doesn’t seem to offer good warranty/repair service, which is crucial if you’re an “outdoorsy” type that might ding the plating on it. If I know I can’t get the thing repaired I’d rather buy a $100 piece of junk and replace it four times than buy something that’ll become a $400 piece of junk if I bump it into a rock wrong. "

    "The price is great for what it offers. However, it doesn't have many sports-related features like a heart rate monitor or a GPS. So if you spend a lot of time in the outdoors, I would recommend saving up for a watch that has them."

    "This seems like a fantastic watch that even doubles as an MP3 player. A battery life with 5 days is remarkable. Not needing to charge it every night is a huge plus. This has 3.9/5 stars on amazon so we're not sure if this is truly the best watch however its features are good enough to get some good use out of it."

    "I'm only just getting into golf, but man, this is a neat piece of tech! I kind of wish it did a little more, because it seems so narrowly focused. But what it DOES do, it does better than anyone else; the GPS is super accurate, and it even picked up one of the three local courses I use."

    "Nope, nope, and one more time nope! I don't want my child to have even more distractions when she is trying to focus. Want to do homework? Too bad! She is just going to play with her watch. Want to play together? Not really, too busy with the watch! I don't like the concept, don't like the execution, and I am overall very disappointed."

    "This "Kindak smartwatch" is suitable for wide variety of Android smartphones but it is extremely far from being best, or to be more precise - it is quite close to being the worst. Granted, it is about $30 so you can't be expecting too much paying so little but it is less than what you can expect. Consider yourself lucky if it works straight out of the box and if it endures for a couple of days. Build quality is terrible, quality control is nonexistent and simply, it is not worth it. Invest more and buy something decent than wasting your 30 dollars on some trash. "
