Hey @Christopher! Well, it really depends on what you want to use it for.

The Apple watch has some fitness features but I find it a bit uncomfortable to wear while working out or exercising. Fitness trackers are focused on fitness (dah!) so they usually have less many apps and features so it really depends what you want to do with the device!

Apple watch is not that bad, but I think some fitness trackers are way more better, than Apple watch

If you're looking for something more focused on fitness, I would recommend looking into fitness trackers like Fitbit or Garmin. They have a range of options from basic step counters to more advanced GPS and heart rate monitoring. These devices are typically designed to be more comfortable and durable during exercise and can also track your progress over time.
If you're looking for something with more features beyond just fitness tracking, like music, texting, and phone calls, then the Apple Watch might be a better fit for you. It still has some decent fitness features but is more of a smartwatch than a dedicated fitness tracker.
Ultimately, the best fitness gear for you depends on your specific needs and preferences. Consider what activities you'll be doing, how much data you want to track, and what features are important to you before making a decision.

Hi @Christopher!

If you want a device that can do more than track your fitness activities, then Apple Watch is the way to go. However, if you are looking for a device specifically designed for fitness tracking and has a longer battery life, a fitness tracker might be the better option for you.

Choosing between an Apple Watch and a fitness tracker depends on your needs. If you want a versatile device with comprehensive features and seamless integration with other Apple devices, go for the Apple Watch. If fitness tracking is your main focus and you prefer a more budget-friendly option, a fitness tracker might be suitable. Consider your priorities and compare features to make the right choice.

When deciding between an Apple Watch and a fitness tracker, it ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences. Here are some factors to consider:

Ecosystem: If you already use Apple products and have an iPhone, the Apple Watch would seamlessly integrate with your existing ecosystem, allowing you to access features like Apple Health and receive notifications from your phone.

Features: Apple Watch offers a wide range of features beyond fitness tracking, such as receiving calls, replying to messages, streaming music, using apps, and even ECG monitoring (on certain models). Fitness trackers, on the other hand, primarily focus on health and fitness-related features like step counting, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and workout tracking.

Design and Customization: Apple Watch offers various models, styles, and customizable watch faces, allowing you to personalize its appearance. Fitness trackers often have a simpler design and may be more focused on functionality rather than aesthetics.

Price: Apple Watches tend to be more expensive compared to fitness trackers, especially if you opt for the latest models or additional features. Fitness trackers offer more affordable options while still providing essential fitness tracking capabilities.
