Garmin just bought a company called FirstBeat, they supply algorithms to these wearable fitness tracking devices and leverage the data in return to train these algorithms. There are a lot of really useful features like training load, training status, estimated V02 Max, recovery time estimation, stress level, heat and altitude acclimatization, training effects, all day stress and recovery.Okay. Good to know. What will you be buying at the moment?
My experience as well - and it spies for China to boot. Brilliant piece of kitI have had the Garmin Fenix 5x - excellent product but way overpriced, the previous Gen Apple - Expensive kak product too busy with all the apps and no battery life and fragile, Samsung - battery terrible and currently the Huawei Watch GT 2 - 95% of the Garmin features at less than half the price and 2 week battery life. And yes I have a Iphone and it works brilliantly with Discovery Vitality. No brainer lol IMHO
