Iím a long time WIS, but was looking to take my first foray into smart watches.
My primary need for this watch is pretty simple. Iím a pilot currently stuck on short call reserve. I also commute which puts me in a crash pad with a number of other jamokes who sleep around me on bunk beds.
As I can get called at all hours of the night, I had hoped to get a watch that would pair with my phone that I could put on vibrate and use as my source of announcing phone calls and setting the alarm.
Enter the iWatch. Being an Apple guy, this seemed a natural fit. However, after about six weeks waiting, my series 4 arrived broken. Speaking with customer service, they were surprisingly candid in telling me that this does happen a lot recently. So much for the iWatch.
It occurred to me that perhaps another decent smart watch might fulfill the same functions, without waiting another six weeks for a replacement iWatch.
Not knowing much about smart watches though I am not sure where to start.
Are there any suggestions as to another watch that might have this functionality that are popular amongst you guys? Perhaps a Suunto or Garmin, or something along those lines.
I appreciate any and all thoughts on the matter.
