Which smartwatch should I get
« on: December 03, 2018, 10:40:07 PM »
Android user here. Thinking of taking the plunge. Basically want something that doesnt look/feel cheap, somewhat stylish (although my understanding is that most/all have dozens of faces to download so this shouldnt be such a problem), good for exercise (specifically biking and swimming but also basic walking, steps, etc) with a GPS and pref a heart rate monitor, and approx a 2 day battery.
The two that I cut it down to (although I'm open to others)-
Zenwatch 3 https://www.asus.com/us/ZenWatch/ASUS-ZenWatch-3-WI503Q/. Seems very stylish, operates on AndroidWear, and is the official watch that that google gave out to their employees (as per my friend that works in their NY office) so it must be good. Downside is that it seems hard to come by at a half normal price. All of the ones that I found are either very expensive or used (fired Google employees?!)
Samsung Gear3 Frontier https://www.costco.com/Samsung-Gear-S3-Frontier-Smartwatch.product.100389882.html. Pretty good price right now from Costco, seems very durable, good battery, and has very good reviews online as THE best android watch. I just dont like that it doesn't look quite as stylish as the Zenwatch and much thicker
Any advice?

Neither of these are rated for swimming.

Take a look at the Samsung Gear Sport (not the most stylish one, it is more casual. And also it is not Google Android Wear OS, but instead Samsung's more limited Tizen OS), and the Samsung Galaxy Watch (which I do not think has built-in GPS.)

iPhone users have more or less one option..
(I don't believe any smartwatches work with WhatsApp anymore then any text / chat app)
