I am deep in the Apple ecosystem and own 5 Apple Watches that I wear all the time. Garmin is the only other smart watch that I will buy. I currently own 6 Garmin watches and plan to buy the Epix 2. The newer Garmin watches are so much more functional...

Too expensive, too big, with mediocre specs. Nah, I don't see how this could be a choice for parents.
