ScotLass + 638 Posted May 17, 2016 Share Posted May 17, 2016 Alrighty folks, I am currently looking at getting a piece of wearable tech that will act as a fitness tracker but also have smartwatch capabilities, i.e. phone notifications. The backstory is that whilst I've currently got a lovely watch that I wear daily, it's not something that will be suitable for the job when I apply full-time this year (not really suitable for rough and tumble), and I want something that will help me achieve my fitness goals. My phone is iOS and will remain so for the foreseeable, but I don't want an Apple Watch due to cost and breakability. My current options are the Garmin Vivosmart HR (and they've now released the Vivosmart HR+ with GPS built in) and the Microsoft Band 2 (which I've only discovered today). The reason being that these two have HRMs in the wrist built in, GPS, and smartphone notifications, all for under £200. I've looked at Fitbit's current options, but there's nothing that quite meets up to these two "hybrid" smartwatches/fitness trackers, for the price. Does anyone have any other recommendations, or used either of these bands in the job? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
