Pros and cons

According to our smartwatch expert
  • The watch displays heart rate zones while you're working out, so you can workout with a specific target in mind, for instance to improve your stamina.
  • With GPS and GLONASS, the watch determines your location, speed, and route more accurately than comparable watches.
  • Is compatible with the sports app Strava. This means you get extensive analyses and can share your performance with friends and followers.
  • The watch doesn't support music storage, so you have to take your phone with you each workout.
  • Doesn't have a trackback function that navigates you back the way you came from.
  • Garmin isn't compatible with all Huawei smartphones.
