Which Watch?

So, I need a bit of advice/help/suggestions etc.

My Fitbit Blaze has a battery problem, and it only lasts 24 hours if I am lucky, and 4 hours if I am not. I don’t mind charging it, that’s not the problem, it’s the 4 hours stint which happens quite a bit. I bought it in September 2016, so it is close to 3 years old. It is my third Fitbit. My last two were returned within the first year of having them due to moulded strap problems.

I am thinking of three watches so far, Apple Watch Series 4, Fitbit Ionic and Fitbit Versa. I like the idea of GPS built into the watch rather than piggybacking off my iPhone. I like that they all work with messaging etc., all three can carry music and connect to Bluetooth headphones which is a bonus.

The Apple Watch has a medical standard ECG reader which is good as I have a dodgy heart, so that’s positive health-wise. All three do heartbeat monitoring, exercise routines, movement reminder etc. The prices, however, are quite different. The Apple Watch is £429, the Ionic is £249 and the Versa is £199.

So, what are the thoughts of my readers? Do you have either of these watches? Do you love or hate them? Let me know, I need to get a new one soonish.

Cheers.

I kept looking at these devices and the little voice in my head that loves all things tech was shouting “Buy it, buy it”.  I wanted to, but stopped myself, then in the end I gave in to temptation, and thought what the hell, and if I am to have it, have the one with the heart monitor.

Boxing day, I bought it.  What a marvelous device it is too, even knows when I go up the stairs.  I have gone the whole hog and am logging all that I eat into the dashboard, but until the new year I don’t really think I will be watching the calories, god forbid I slow the intake in good food and drink till January 1st.
