thoughts?

While the chart was confusing he hits the nail on the head. What is it you want out of the watch?

I’m an athlete and I no doubt will continue to use the garmin 935 watch for my runs and cycling activities but will have the Apple Watch series 4 for notifications and non serious activities like walks and jogs.

I don’t mean to be dismissive, but I don’t care for Casey Neistat either. I don’t care how big of a ‘YouTuber’ he is or how much money he makes, some of his reviews are really non-informative and useless.

He's more of a creative content producer, I wouldn't exactly care for his opinion on tech either; especially something as personalized as an apple watch.

Normally his tech reviews / insight are a mess but he was pretty accurate in this video, although more long winded and complicated then it need be.

Basically...

From smartest to dumbest...

1. Apple Watch
2. Android Watches
3. Fitness watches like Garmin / Fitbit
4. Regular watches

He also shows the battery life is inverse of the above, which is a valid point. He is clear the build quality and ecosystem is by far the best on the Apple Watch but points out the running and fitness tracking on the Garmin is unparalleled and with good battery life.

He advocates using the one that fits you best. Just want to know someone is calling / texting and love to run? Get the Garmin because then you get world class tracking and 2 week battery life. Want a true modern computer on your wrist that is like a fine piece of jewelry? Get an Apple Watch. Don't have an iPhone but want a closer to Apple Watch experience? Get an Android Wear. Don't want to deal with something on your wrist but the time? Get a regular watch with 2+ year battery life.

Pretty straight forward but not wrong.
