When I go running, I want a GPS sport watch that provides offline music playback to my Bluetooth headset, solid and reliable GPS tracking, accurate heart rate tracking, and the ability to pay for items in a store without the need for my wallet or phone. I sometimes go on long runs and like to purchase a drink or snack to keep me going. A few wearables now provide this, including the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3, Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, and Fitbit Ionic. If the Fitbit community, detailed sleep tracking, and long battery life are important to you then the Fitbit Ionic may just be the perfect wearable for the masses.
