I had an Apple Watch for a couple of years when they first came out. Personally, I didn't find it all that beneficial since I carry my phone everywhere, and most of the time it was just a glorified notification shade.

Hooked on nice mechanical watches now and don't think I could or would want to go back.

As for using a non-Apple watch with an iPhone, my understanding is that key features like sending messages don't work, which feels like your giving up a lot of the reasons you might be considering a smart watch in the first place.

I dumped my Garmin Vivoactive for a Withings Move. Does just enough tracking for me and like posted above I always have my phone anyway.

I am the absolute antithesis to everything in modern Apple's line-up and systems. As to the Apple watch, I can certainly understand their functionality - of which is extremely useful and streamlining in life. But smart watches are not for me in general, personally. Some call me a "boomer" because of this, I prefer "doomer".

I am thinking about changing my Apple watch's 3rd edition to 6th edition or Garmin FENIX 6gen. What is better to choose for travelling?

Depends, if you have already an iPhone I would recommend to stick to that brand. If not I would prefer the Garmin.

I love my Garmin Marq Driver with built in timer. Great at the track.

But I also run, backpack, hike and get out a lot so good to have the motivation via accurate tracking of the metrics.

Band is sexy with red highlights.
