I had 2 different versions of the Samsung smart/activity watches, the Samsung activity metrics were always wrong. So I got this Garmin watch, it was cheaper and the focus was more activity tracking over smart features. The Garmin Watch started out great and the health app was better than Samsung's. The smart features were also surprisingly good(displaying email, text and calls from my phone). The safety features are great allowing my husband to easily track my whereabouts in real time when I am out walking, hiking, or biking. But within weeks the watch started acting up. I went for a published 7 mile hike and my watch showed only 5 miles. I climbed 2 floors but the watch showed 10 floors. I climbed 20 floors and the watch showed 0 floors and needed to be reset and then restarted.... the watch congratulated me on achieving my water goal for the day when I had not logged any water yet for the day. I really love this watch and the app when it works but I am always having to reset the watch to factory defaults or uninstall and reinstall the app. Also the GPS seems weak, the signal takes a long time to connect and disconnects easily in wooded areas. At this point I have had the watch only about 1 month. The watch face scratched on day 1 which never happened in over 1 year on the Samsung watch. I still prefer this Garmin over the Samsung.

Edit: I've had and used the watch for over a year now. Only noticeable degradation has been with the bluetooth connectivity. Used to have no problems with music skipping or sounding choppy. In the last 6 months, its gotten quite a bit worse with multiple skips (~500ms) per song. No issues with music when connected to my phone, so it isn't the headphones.Original review:I was looking for a smartwatch that could download spotify playlists, connect to bluetooth headphones, GPS tracking during runs / hikes, long battery life, and a fast non-laggy touch screen interface. Been wearing the watch for about a week now, here are my impressions thus far:-Connecting the watch to my phone and wifi to download my spotify playlists was fairly easy and didn't take much time.-I use a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds for headphones. Pairing them with the watch was extremely easy.-When playing music from the watch, there are almost no issues with connectivity. Over the course of 1.5hrs, I'll maybe have a few milliseconds where the music is choppy. Almost not worth mentioning but wanted to in case others are having issues.-GPS tracking so far seems to be great, no issues here.-Battery life when not listening to music is great. Often only uses up 5-8% over a 10-12 hour period.-Battery life when listening to music and connected to bluetooth headphones could be better. Over a 2 hour period of listening to music I saw the battery drain ~30%. Good enough for me, but could be better and is the reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars.-Touch screen is very responsive and I have not had any issues with lag at all.-The watch has a ton of features and a lot of applications / widgets. It can be a little overwhelming at first trying to navigate but within an hour of first wearing the watch, I felt comfortable with where everything was.

I'm a watch dinosaur - I like automatic movements and the occasional quartz watch. Have avoided the "Smart Watch" fad up til now. But I've been wearing a Garmin VivoSmart fitness band with a regular watch and was looking for something that could carry off both purposes at the same time . . . without looking like I'm wearing a smartphone on my wrist. I'm also an Android phone guy so . . . adios Apple watch. But that's OK.Look, if you're looking for a device like this you have a choice: you can buy a true "smartwatch" with a bright and shiny display, the ability to track your steps (Apple/Samsung), read your emails . . and a crummy battery life. Or you can buy a fitness devise with Smartwatch features . . . like a Garmin.I choose Garmin. I bought the 40mm size because it looks like a regular watch and doesn't look goofy with dressier styles. No, it doesn't have the bright AMOLED display like the Apples and Samsungs, but it does have the "always on" display which is easy to read in any light. In dark areas, you can program it to brighten with a wrist snap or a tap. Again, it's like a regular watch in that way - which for me is a must. And yes, you can customize the face or download others with the Garmin IQ app. Works fine for me.It's the fitness innards where Garmin really shines, and it tracks damn near every bodily function you have. Steps is just the beginning. Lots of pre-programmed workouts along with heart rate and Pulse Ox monitoring. Garmin just buries the competition in the fitness arena, if that's important to you.Yes, you can read texts etc but . . . well, I have a phone for that. No, I don't want to read emails on my watch. The Garmin VA2 looks and acts like a real watch. It's just smarter and the fitness stuff cannot be beat. And the battery life buries the Apples and the Samsungs. I get 2-3 days with just the basics on.If you don't care much about the fitness criteria and want a wrist display to parrot your phone . . . get thee to the Apple store. Just make sure you bring your charger everywhere. If you want a solid smart-ish watch that looks classy and is packed with health and fitness utilities . . . get the Garmin.No regrets here.
