Anyone have experience with them?
Was leaning towards a Misfit Vapor or a Ticwatch E.
Would be very handy for my current workplaces where Im not allowed to be seen on my phone regularly.

I have an apple watch and i really like it.

If you are the sort of person that has big group chats you definitely need to learn to mute it though, otherwise your wrist vibrates every few seconds all day. which is very distracting.

Really like the Misfit Vapor, cost me $275 as I couldn't be bothered online shopping after amazon cancelled the first watch I ordered.
Bluetooth woeks well, battery lasts me a couple of days, on board storage of 4gb is handy for music meaning I dont need my phone on me.
Looks really good and despite no experience with a smart watch have found it really easy to pick up the controls. Love have messages from mesenger come through to it and allow me to reply, great when you're in a job that doesn't like you using your phone at all.
Heart rate monitor is accurate but obviously havent bothered trying any of the fitness related apps.
Have downloaded spotify and a few other apps to it with no hassles.
Seems great value so far.

My Fitbit HR Plus was interesting for a while, but constantly needing to recharge it was a pain. So, when my wife had a minor fall and cracked her cheaper version up I gave her mine, and I reverted to an old style watch that just does its job without all the fiddle.

My misfit died a long time ago and I replaced it with a Samsung Active, awesome thing and battery life lasts me for several days.

Mine lasted several days too but I'm getting sick of things that need that frequency of recharging.
Life is full of activities more enjoyable than that! ;)
