Question

Good smart watch

I had a Pebble Time when I had an iPhone and really liked it. I now have a Pixel and recently purchased a Samsung Gear S3. It just ok. Its a bit on the big side and I was hoping to be able to check my Gmail accounts and maybe respond to the emails. I can't seem to get my Gmail emails to show up only my work Exchange-based emails. Iv looked at the Fitbit Iconic the Asus Zen watch and the
Huawei Watch 2. Both Asus and Huawei watches don't have any type of heart rate sensors. I do think the Samsung Pay feature is kind of cool but not sure it will work with Android Pay like my phone does ( Haven't really tested this). Any suggestions on a pebble-like watch?

Thanks

If you want heart rate sensors and Android pay is not important for you, then you can go with new Fitbit Versa, it has Fitbit pay but I have not tested Fitbit pay yet so can't say much on it. Versa is less expensive then Fitbit Ionic and it has got all important features.

Apple watch

I'm looking for something with a bigger display then the apple watch 3. It is so tiny and I've been seeing tons of older people wearing them about. -Not exactly sure why this is.

Why not Pebble 2+

In reply to: Good smart watch

Hi, I just want to give my personal opinion, you said that you prefer pebble-like watch, why not choose the pebble itself, what I mean is Pebble 2 + Heart Rate. It has the heart rate sensor that you are looking for. I think you might miss the info or something, the Huawei Watch 2 actually has a heart rate sensor, and also when you check out the market value, it shows a huge price gap between Pebble 2 and Huawei Watch 2. Maybe not something like relates to pebble-like watch, I mean in term of price.

But if you are searching the price range of Pebble 2 (and also related specs), the closest smartwatch that I could think of is Huawei Fit.All in all, maybe you can state your budget and it can be just easy to compare the right kind of smartwatch that really suit your needs.

Fuss about smart watches

In reply to: Good smart watch

Hi bobMKE! I actually never understood the fuss about smart watches! We already have amazing handheld devices that we can use to complete all the tasks that we need to. I am pretty sure that Apple did a good job with the wearable tech that it’s got out there, but apart from these, the rest only looks like copies. I wouldn’t suggest you to get any of the cheap toys!
