My wife is after a new running watch. She currently has a basic garmin but the HRM has cracked and blisters her wrist.
She likes the idea of an Apple Watch but I know she’d go nuts having to charge it everyday. Plus they’re expensive!
She wants a nice looking watch, with the ability to change the straps, GPS would be nice, but it also can’t be massive as she has small wrists.
The Amazfit GTS looks like a knock off Apple Watch, but is it any good?
I’ve looked at the vivoactive 3 (I have the vivoactive 2 and it’s been faultless) and the Vivomove HR. I’m concerned they are a little big.
I’ve avoided Fitbit as she had one before that also blistered her wrist but pretty much straight from the box. The garmin was fine until it was cracked.

Also is the series 3 Apple Watch still worth looking at? Must be getting long in the tooth now.

Not in the least, and at 38mm or 42mm may be more suited to your wifes smaller wrists.
Also the 3 is still on sale at Apple so that tells you it’s not ‘getting long in the tooth’ !
Probably some BF deals still about.

The daily charging has put her back in the other brands market.


Wife had an series 1 apple watch that needed charging every day along with her iphone.
She tried an Android phone and loves it so got her a rose gold GTS for xmas.
2 weeks battery and looks great.
