@mtadventurer I've had 3 different Garmin smartwatches over the years. I'm currently using a Garmin Fenix 5. For me, it is excellent. I use it for indoor workouts and on trails and mtns. It has a pulse rate monitor built into the back of it and can be use with a chest strap monitor. Has GPS, temperature monitor and altimeter. Has a function for calibrating the altimeter. Has access to a fairly large selection of Apps and Garmin has a Connect site where you can download trips, workouts and etc data. I use mine with Training Peaks. Available Apps include different watch faces allowing you to emphasize data most important to you. Also, can display a map. So can monitor movements with a GPS and display a small face size map of where you are. Indoor workout Apps include things like treadmill, elliptical, bike, rower, cardio and etc. Each tailored for that use. Outdoor Apps include trail hike, trail run, bike, ski and etc. It'll monitor sleep quality and will do a stress calculation. Only problem I've had with it is the small connector on the back used to mate a connector cable to it to i/f with a computer. The connector sometimes acts up a bit and I must move it a bit to ensure I have a good connection when downloading workout or trail data. It is expensive. However, like all Garmin products does go on sale at times.
