The major health insurers offer at least pretty significant discounts on all the Garmin Forerunner watches. (Humana Go365 30%, UHC and BCBS 20%). Reward dollars over time in the various programs could be assumed to offset total cost as well.
The Apple Watch calculated less distance. Also - the battery doesn’t last too long so I always had to remember to charge it. I bought a Garmin Forerunner and haven’t looked back since.
He has the Garmin 645 and doesn’t go anywhere without it (hiking, running, walking the dog, etc.) Mine is a little cheaper (and comes in a regular size version, the 45) and doesn’t do altitude or have any storage on the watch itself, needs to be hooked up to your phone to play music and stuff. BUT it will record activities without your phone and transfer everything later. His was recommended above and I know he loves it!
