If you want to add a device to charge everyday, yes, just pick AW.
If you really want to know how you perform while you are running, biking,...etc and have those app to provide you statistics, safe yourself money, just pick the Garmin and be done with it. Just focus on your exercise. There is no comparison for AW at this field.

For me, I don't need to have another watch as an extension of my cellphone. It's just next to me. As long as watch can notify me there is meeting, text, and messages, that is good enough. One charge can last two weeks with two times of exercise per week is really amazing thing.

That depends on what you're using it for. In terms of running metrics, the Garmin watches are much better. As a general purpose smart watch, they aren't very good.

I owned the Vivoactive and Vivoactive HR. Wasn't excited about the Vivoactive 3, so I changed over to this watch in december and love it. I actually like NOT having a touch screen better. Music control is less convenient than the vivoactives, but its useable and thats basically the only downfall to not having a touch screen. Outside of that, and maybe scrolling... I really don't like a touch screen on a watch.

Highly suggest this watch. I like its size (smaller) over the Fenix 3, and the Fenix 5s is significantly more expensive.

Charge mine once a week. They just released a software update that makes it so you can get alerts for just about any app.

Good price on a good watch. I got mine for $300 and think it's totally worth it. $250 is even better!

Yes, fenix 5 enhance the battery. My friend is on Fenix 3. It's not as good. But, easily it can last more than one week for one charge. He doesn't turn on BT all the time. So, not sure will it drop below one week if BT is always on.

For my case, my BT is always on. Exercise hours is between 3 to 4 hours per week. GPS module is the function which consume battery most. Rest of it is ok. Now, I just leave my cellphone at home when I am running and sync it after I got home. Garmin connect will sync to strava automatically with all statistics.

I know this is a thread for the 735, but can confirm the extremely long life of the Fenix 5. Honestly it's almost a problem because you forget it even needs to be charged. So you get caught every few weeks trying to do a workout just to realize you only have 8% battery.

Granted they aren't perfect, but they are CONSTANTLY releasing updates and adding tons of additional features.

735xt is a great watch. Not a behemoth like the fenixes, great battery life as mentioned, and I wanted to add that heart rate monitoring is continuous. As in, its ALWAYS taking a reading. I'm not even sure how this is possible with the battery life, but I do remember some earlier reviews saying the readings were only periodic. Maybe they gave it a software update along the way to add this functionality? Any way, great watch all around.. just don't expect to be reaching all your "productivity" goals on it. It's not a true smart watch by any means.
