    So the main reason that I am considering a smartwatch is for tracking runs and hikes. I have tried using my phone to do this but both my LG G3, and now the Samsung S6 edge+ are bulky to keep strapped to your arm and I have variable luck with the GPS accurately tracking my runs.

    My ideal smart watch would be something that has a great GPS tracker (without having to bring my phone with me), can play music to a bluetooth headset, uses google voice command, and has a bit of style.

    Right now I think the only AW watch available that has it's own GPS is the sony smartwatch 3. I just really am not fond of the style of the thing.

    Samsung Gear S2 is supposed to be coming out with a 3G GPS enabled version but it is not available yet and I have not seen anything about when the GPS enabled version will actually be available (also not a huge fan of S voice and the overlying samsung software).

    I have also considered just getting the Fitbit Surge (I use a fitbit charge HR right now). This of course does not use AW or have any music capabilities. Also not great in the looks department. My dream is that Fitbit would make an AW device but I do not see that happening.

    Are there any other contenders that I am not aware of, or rumors of upcoming devices that would meat my needs and wants?

    thanks

    There is the Moto 360 Sport:

    Moto 360 Sport

    Should meet the requirements you laid out.

    Thanks, I was unaware of the 360 sport. Best as I can tell, like the Gear S2 3G, this is still a product in development and not actually being sold yet (and at least on the website no definitive available date).

    That is correct - the 360 Sport was announced when the Moto 360 v2 was announced and is not yet available. I thought I recall hearing something about a November date, but I certainly cannot find anything concrete.

    You can try Samsung Gear S2, Moto 360 II and Microsoft band. All of these are useful in fitness tracking. You may also take a look on Modular smart watch. On this smart watch you would be able to add blocks for your features. So you can add blocks only for fitness tracking or heart rate monitoring.
    The Gear S2 and 360 II do not have gps (there are sport/gps editions coming out but not currently available). I looked at the modular Smart watch, I am not ready to commit to a product that has not actually been released (they are still taking investments for a projected release in the next several months). Thanks for the advice.
