    Post Standalone smart watches

    Hi. In my opinion, social media is killing my time and I want to get rid of it. However, I must listen to music and make calls.

    I am planning to buy a smart watch;

    I should be able to listen to music, using my bluetooth headphones connected

    I should be able to answer calls, make calls using the watch, using my headphones to listen. ( Without the need of a phone connected )

    It should be a bit sportive, it should have classic apps like heart beat measure like most watches

    It should have a touchscreen, I mean, there can be home button and go back button, and even some other buttons, but I want to be able to control some things by touching on the screen too.
    ************************************************** ********************************

    So basically a smart watch with a sim, mic, bluetooth. I don't want to carry my phone.

    < 300$/

    If you want a SmartWatch that can answer calls and messages without connecting to a phone you need one that has it's own SIM Card.
    There are Samsung Watches that can be used as a standalone device using "eSim".

    EDIT: Take a look at THIS

    The gear s3 is pretty independent but you can't install apps like whatsapp on it
