    "The ZenWatch 3 was very nice when it was released, they are very hard to find new now and I would suggest something newer if you are in the 300 dollar range."

    "When I first heard of a smartwatch, I wondered why I would need one when my phone is always nearby. Then I received my Apple Watch as a gift. It feels strange not to wear it even for the text notifications alone. It does everything I want it to - heart rate, fitness tracker, phone calls and texts. I'm sure there are tons of things I haven't even explored on this yet. "

    "This is a good price ($112) for an attractive watch that will also track your activity and estimate calories burned, but, once again, I do not know why this is called a "smart watch". It will download its data to a smartphone, but that is it as far as being "smart". Although this watch is advertised as being water resistant, the band is leather. I don't think you want to get leather wet."

Perhaps it is the sleek look of the Apple Watch that has spoiled me, the digital look of the product and the plastic make it look like a cheap toy befitting of a child and not for an adult that may want to use the watch to keep track of time.

    "I was in the market for a smart watch and came across this one. I don't think it's bad for the price, but there are still some kinks to work out. The watch is very stylish so it goes great with anything you wear. The battery life isn't so good on it and needs to be replaced, if it can be replaced after a few months. Doesn't really sync up, I've tried a few times, and it gets to a point and then just stops. It tracks pretty well, but it's lacking in features that would make it optimal."
