Advice: What's a good smartwatch for outdoor adventure?

Hi, I am super adventurous and am looking to buy a Smartwatch to be able to track my fitness and other things while traveling and having adventures. I have researched a little bit and saw that Garmin GPS watches are pretty good. Do you have any suggestions for an excellent smartwatch?

A smartwatch can be an awesome way to track your fitness, speed, and other data when out adventuring. Do you have a specific use in mind? That would help us narrow down your options.

Here are a few examples of the different Garmin watches:

This should give you a starting point for your research. We also recommend checking out these Expert Advice articles on Fitness Electronics, Heart Rate Monitors, and Speed & Distance Trackers to get more information. Feel free to reach back out if you have more questions.
