    You’ll want to consider features as well as cost. One nuisance with Fitbit is that, despite thousands of users’ feedback, they refuse to add a notes feature.

    He didn't ask about features.
    I think the top ones are the LG ones that Verizon sells, the newest Huwaei and the TicWatchs. I still like the Zenwatch 3 but Asus already abandoned it.

    it depends on the features you are wanting as to which is the best. if you want simple with few features use fitbit, if you want something with a lot of features, then wearOS. I have a samsung watch that uses tizen.

    It really all depends on what you want the watch to do. Are you looking for an activity tracker with some smart capabilities or do you want all the bells and whistles that come with Wears?

    I fall into the first category with my Garmin watch. I got primarily for tracking my neighborhood jogs, daily steps and HR. I can get call, text, and app notifications but can't respond. I also get a week plus battery life.

    Sorry, I should have been more descriptive.

    Best overall so the watch will be used for both fitness and everyday life. So if someone is on a budget and had to choose one which should they choose and why?

    I found my answer in a roundabout way. I actually tweeted about it.

    My journey that started with a question ended with a solution for now.

    It's WearOS, and it's not really close. The others just don't have the depth of quality fitness/workout apps. Also, I can open my door with my watch! That app is only available for Android/Wear and IOS.

    Best looking watch is probably one of the luxury brands that dabble....again, they only do that with Android.

    I didn't post because it takes you off forum and out of respect for the forum members and owner I will not post. But it is easy to find just type my username into twitter or G+ and it will take you right to it. Once you see it you will understand. But we have given infractions to others for doing that so I'm trying to avoid being hypocritical.

    Sorry for leaving you guys hanging but this really was an honest question in my head as I was going to buy a fitbit last week.
