    "I love biking but hate carrying my bulky phone with me when I bike. So I found a smartwatch that is perfect for my biking adventures. It's the Fitbit Surge Fitness Superwatch. It keeps track of all of my stats so I can easily review all of my rides immediately afterwards. It's comfortable and easy to wear. I love it overall!"

    "I am an avid biker and gym rat and I have found the best smartwatch for the person looking to fine tune their workouts. The Garmin vívoactive Black is a stylish and very functional smartwatch that basically does everything. Of course, with Garmin you know it is going to be quality which is second to none. Some of the features include GPS running and biking stats and the touchscreen is really functional. Two thumbs up! "

    "Ticwatch E is a very reliable and functional smart watch at a great price. It is compatible with Android and iOS and is lightweight which really matters to me! Be sure to charge it properly at first and then have fun with it! It’s wonderful to be able to use voice commands when your hands are full and you wouldn’t have been able to use your phone. The GPS is great. "

    "Fitbit Blaze has a large display and a great battery life. It can measure heart rate quite accurately, notifications are conveniently displayed and the price is not out of this world. But there is one thing though, one very important thing that makes this device far from perfect and that is the lack of integrated GPS system. In other words, it cannot track your location on the map without your phone. For some it can be a dealbreaker but it depends. If you carry your smartphone while biking anyway, then it's not a big deal. "

    "This does a good job keeping track of what I want it to. I like the Samsung brand and have a Galaxy phone. I went with this one instead of the more popular brand because of the Samsung reputation and my past history with them."

    "The Apple Watch is a great way to get even more sucked into Apple's walled-garden ecosystem. Honestly, Android's smartwatch solutions are better, and with Android you have brand options. Apple just has Apple. If you don't like Apple's products, or maybe if you don't like their spying on you and selling your information, well, tough. If you're like me, independence and choice are important to you. Don't give that up for this."

    "Apple's smart watches are the best on the market. I've tried two different brands so far (this being one) and Apple's was WAY more user friendly and helpful. It was kind of expensive, but I think the extra money is worth it, just for how great it is to use alone. Super simple to set up too, so that's a bonus."

    "I have been trying to lose weight and started riding my bike. I wanted a watch that wuld track my goals and heart rate. I tried the Samsung Gear Fit2. I previously owned a fitbit charge hr and I was not pleased with it all. I looked at this and was very impressed with its features. I love the GPS tracking. I also like the fact that Samsung provides a software app for you to create your own watch faces. Battery issue-seems to be an issue with most devices of this type. I will agree that the battery will run down fast if you're not careful. I keep wifi off, and having it turn on with wrist gestures. On a 40 minute bike ride using it as an mp3 player did take a toll on battery life. I also don't wear it to bed so limited use will also conserve battery."
