Reply To: Gear Advice – Smart Watch

I dont have any idea about Suunto. Apple watch series 2 is good and can track swim, run and bike. If you arent training for long distances, series 2 battery should be ok. I have a fenix 3 hr (price reduced by $150 after fenix 5 was released) and it can do everything when it comes to multi-sport with long lasting battery. Pls dont compare fenix to apple watch in smart watch capabilities. Fenix 5 is less bulky and comes with maps but the sapphire version will set you back as much as $800.

You can also look into 920xt – most popular triathlon watch. Amazon has a deal right now – expires in 15 hrs or so. $220 with HRM-Run.

Finally, check out DC Rain Maker site – it has detailed reviews of each & every product.
