Hello Skimble fam!
I'm curious. ...
Do you own and use a fitness Smartwatch?
What kind do you own?
What's a feature you like about using one?

I'm definitely looking to purchase one for myself. I want to be able to track my motion, heart rate and link it to my android phone. ;)

Hey, may not connect to your phone but any of the new garmin watches are great. You can buy a heart rate monitor with it as well and it syncs. Tells you how many steps/ miles you do, calories burned, has interval options. Well worth a look!

I got my hands on a misfit shine pretty cheap. Was a sale on amazon. Great on tracking activity and sleep. Minor issue when sync. Though it doesn't track heart rate but that really isn't hard to figure.

Also a few fitness websites have talked about which fitness watch

Well I still haven't bought one yet. They all have such varied options and I want one that does it all!  ^_^

My eye is still kind of on the moto 360.  It has pulse monitor and android wear os.

I've got my eyes in the Basis Peak.  Anyone have any experience with that watch?

I product test for a lot of the companies.... the best all around watch right now is the Basis Peak, however if high intensity training is your thing, it won't do well with heart rates over 80% on max hr. It isn't designed for that. If triathlons are your thing, the Garmin 910 St is the end all be all. If you want a very good on demand heart rate watch, go with the New Balance Life TRNR sync before they go out of stock. Or, if you are patient, wait for the AIRO which won't come out until next year. I'm working with them now and that watch can actual track your carbs, protein and fat intake using spetragraphy technology. You don't even have to log your food!

Track your food without entering food data - do tell...!!!

The Samsung gear fit is all you want and more I would go with that.  Plus you can accessorize it and change colors of bands.  And it's not too bulky.

pedometer
Sleep tracker
Water resistant
Heart rate monitor ♡

Have you tried linking it to apps, like trackers or sleep monitors? Since I have a Galaxy mini I don't have S Health so I'm mainly interested in devices that communicate well with different apps.
