I’ve been using the Moto360 Sport watch for (exactly) the last year. I bought it at Target on my way up to go skiing. It has been AMAZING having this data on my wrist for instant viewing. The watch is unable to serve as a collector, but reliably shows the phone’s data.
The integrated watch band recently ripped off on one side, and now needs to be replaced. Looking to hear people’s opinions of their watches, for example if there is a better option than the SSW3 these days.
- Lenovo offered to “fix” (replace) it for $75, with a 5 day turnaround.
- I found an SSW3 used white for $105
- I found a new SSW3 in Lime for $130.
- The Samsung Gear S2 is $172
- The Samsung Gear S3 for $290.
If I’m spending another $75 on a watch at a minimum, I’ll probably jump for the SSW3, but not in love with the Lime color. I also have a little heartburn over spending $100 for something used.
I tried the official Dexcom app on my Android phone and watch when it came out, but it was too basic for me. Being unable to see any numbers in the past was SUPER frustrating. I liked being able to turn off the GPS receiver, but the battery drain with it on doesn’t change how often I need to charge the phone, so not really a real benefit. I used the Dexcom app only for 3 days and have never gone back. There really is no comparison to how useful the xDrip app is for me.
