    What's your go to matchup device. I've had an Apple Watch in my past life, Moto 360, Garmin Fenix 5 and now I'm looking for something to pair up with this Note 9.

    I'm debating the new Garmin Instinct, Suunto Spartan or Samsung Galaxy Watch. Even debating one of the new upcoming devices. Mainly a watch for what watches do best and activity tracking. But some smart functions are welcome.

    Definitely the Galaxy Watch. I've really grown accustomed to having a watch. I've had the Apple watches and a few Samsung watches. I use them for my workouts and notifications. I definitely notice if I happen to forget to put one on. That rarely happens though.

    Gear S3 Frontier, better than the Galaxy Watch in both looks and functionality (no MST payments).

    I disagree on the looks but the MST thing is sad.

    I've not looked into the Fossil line much other than a quick once over at the mall. I should look at them some more.

    I really like the look of the Fossil watch but I don't like Android Wear, I have had a couple of them. I have the Gear S3 Frontier (Tizen OS), which I really like. If you want to use Samsung Pay, then the S3 Classic or Frontier is a good choice.

    To be honest I don't mind just using my phone for the few times I actually use Samsung Pay in a day. But I think I'm leaning Galaxy Watch.

    I was thinking of picking up the Galaxy watch but there is a lot of negative posts online about the tracking for steps. I'll have to think more about it.

    Currently, my work watch is a Samsung Gear 2 Neo rooted and running Android Wear 1.5.
    Weekends I use A Fossil Marshal (metal band, kinda heavy) and A Fossil Explorist (the button easily activated ON GOOGLE when needing hands towards wrist. Not a big deal but kinda annoying).
    I like them all.
    In the mail are a Ticwatch E and a Samsung Gear Sport to try out.
    I've become a smartwatch junkie, since settling on the Note 9 for the long haul.

    Which Ticwatch the E or E2? The new ones are now available according to the article here on AC.

    I returned mine. Bad battery life and steps were not accurate.

    I had the galaxy watch and returned it. Fitness tracking was off and the calories burned figure just bizarre, apparently a 1.5 mile walk burns about 900 calories! I also had issues with tap to pay and I'm in the UK so it's not due to MST or lack thereof.

    I've tried a few now and imo the watch situation on Android is way inferior to Apple, if you've used an apple watch you will be disappointed I think. It reminds a little of iOS Vs Android 5 or 6 years ago, plenty of functionality but lacking polish.

    Maybe I'd find non wear/tizen (e.g. Garmin or Fitbit) better?

    I have Garmin Fenix Chronos and it's extremely accurate with step and pretty sure the calories are pretty close too. I use with the Scosche Rhythm 24 heart rate monitor (armband) during runs and CrossFit workouts which give a very accurate heart rate too. You can't beat a Garmin for any fitness tracking IMO.
