Smart Watch

I currently have a Garmin Forerunner 305. It is excellent for running as it connects to Strava, so I can track my times.

I am thinking about upgrading to a smart watch. I would like to use the watch for:

1) Running
2) Gym
3) Casual watch

I believe this is the most suitable I have found so far: I am looking for an Android as I have an android phone.

I am looking for suggestions and reviews.

    OP - have you looked at the Fossil Sport? It's the first affordable smart watch with the new 3100 chipset. At the moment the firmware/software doesn't really make the most of the new chipset but it's only really a matter of time.

    Having said that - have you sat down and considered what you really want a smartwatch for?

    When I bought my first one (I started with a Fossil Q Marshall & have just bought myself a Fossil Sport) there were specific things I wanted it for which wouldn't be covered by a watch such as your Garmin. From what you've mentioned it might be that a new Garmin is your best option!
