So, I need a bit of advice/help/suggestions etc.

My Fitbit Blaze has a battery problem, and it only lasts 24 hours if I am lucky, and 4 hours if I am not. I don’t mind charging it, that’s not the problem, it’s the 4 hours stint which happens quite a bit. I bought it in September 2016, so it is close to 3 years old. It is my third Fitbit. My last two were returned within the first year of having them due to moulded strap problems.

I am thinking of three watches so far, Apple Watch Series 4, Fitbit Ionic and Fitbit Versa. I like the idea of GPS built into the watch rather than piggybacking off my iPhone. I like that they all work with messaging etc., all three can carry music and connect to Bluetooth headphones which is a bonus.

The Apple Watch has a medical standard ECG reader which is good as I have a dodgy heart, so that’s positive health-wise. All three do heartbeat monitoring, exercise routines, movement reminder etc. The prices, however, are quite different. The Apple Watch is £429, the Ionic is £249 and the Versa is £199.

So, what are the thoughts of my readers? Do you have either of these watches? Do you love or hate them? Let me know, I need to get a new one soonish.
