    So we're geeks but what wearable tech do you use, want to use or think that's crap?

    For me I love the Garmin Fenix watches (https://buy.garmin.com/en-GB/GB/p/552982), so much more than the Apple Watch, it lasts longer, looks nicer and for me works nicely with the chest strap based HRM and foot pod that I use.

    I have also had a look at various workout tech, things like the https://www.atlaswearables.com/ or Strenx from https://www.gymwatch.com/en/.

    I have also considered the Suunto Spartan Ultra as an alternative to the Garmin Fenix but tbh I am not sure yet.

    I've not seen that watch before but checking, it's a very handsome watch. I do still love my Apple watch 3 but typically that's because of the good old apple ecosystem, so the way I get alerts from my iPhone 8, and the way it unlocks my MBP. I would admit that these things cause me to gloss over any shortcomings

    I have my Apple Watch 3 on atm because of an issue with my Fenix (RMA'd it) but I really do prefer the Fenix, having to charge this every other day isn't ideal.

    I also have Apple Watch 3. But I want to buy Fenix. I have not yet decided whether I should buy it. My friend advised me to read updated information at besttechexpert.guide pertaining these before making a purchase.

    Just upgraded from the fitbit charge HR to the charge hr 3 and I am glad I did.

    Im into all the fitness gadgets, this one seems more accurate than the first, it tells me all that I need to know and the screen is bigger, which is brill brill for my eyes.

    I've got a Fitbit Blaze, got that 2 years ago (had it replaced under warranty once)... That's the only wearable tech I have...

    I wear an Apple Watch 2 and I think it's great with regards to the health stuff and a heads up on what I'm about to cycle through weather wise...lol

    On my bike, I sport a Garmin Edge 1000 and wear the heart rate sensor along with cadence and speed sensor on the bike. I get some good stats on Strava...which no-one else cares about. I do about 25 miles a day too and from work on the bike, the Garmin is great for such stuff. The Apple Watch then picks up my "steps" and heart rate when at work.
