    Hi guys

    I’ve been looking at the Apple Watch which looks great but a cheaper alternative is Fitbit. However, if I leave my phone at home, does Fitbit have the same feature that watch does that allows this?

    I’m still a bit shocked that Fitbit works on iOS.

    Any ideas guys?

    Based solely on your title, not knowing what other feature sets you want, no the Fitbit will not take calls while you leave your phone at home. But an Apple Watch with cellular will do that. I do not think that WhatsApp is available on the Apple Watch. And you can put music and podcasts on the Apple Watch.

    Without any more information, this is the best I can respond to your thread.

    I can reply to the WhatsApp part
    Even with S4 it can’t listen to audio messages and in fact it cant even display full image messages
    That’s part of the reason I returned my S4 and keeping my S0 for now

    I’d get a Series 3 if that’s all you really want.

    Or i might wait for a mint S4SS next year, S0 still serve me well with whole day battery life
    I just use it for notifications and sometimes use SIRI to set timer which still working fine except slower

    Thanks for your replies guys

    So the s4 doesn’t work fully with WhatsApp? That’s interesting, does it accept calls on WhatsApp?.

    The answering calls baffles me a bit with the watch as if you are using Bluetooth wireless headphones, which part do you speak in to?

    If the S1 will play Apple Music, and listen to audible that may be all I need..

    Sorry the main reason I want a watch is so I can leave m phone at home when I go out.
