    Fitbit supports Windows 10/Windows 10 Mobile, they have an up to date UWP app. Seem pretty commited to windows users.

    Xiaomi Mi Band 2 isn't supported (it's very basic but it's got mega battery life), but there's third party support (you just need to pair it to an android device once, do the updates, then WM10 will see it). Mi Band 3 is coming out this year, so hopefully the creator of that app will do the same with mi band 3.

    I would recommend using the new Apple watch with Nike strap. It's so beautiful and smart.

    How exactly is the Apple Watch supposed to work with Windows, or even Android for that matter? This thread is about watches that work with Windows 10 Mobile.

    You can check this smart gear. It's easily compatible with Android, iPhone, and WINDOWS PHONE as well. It also comes in different colors. Although it's more like smart band but it's cool.

    I may have inadvertently stumbled into something worthwhile. Using the latest version on a non-supported phone usually brings an unspecified set of problems but I didn't think Fitbit connection would be one of them. I use a Fitbit Ionic and it's always worked very well but there are times when the connection gets "delayed" for lack of a better word. Notifications come in as much as 15 minutes late or not at all yet the tracker info stays up to date.

    Since getting 1709 on my Acer Primo, the problem became almost unbearable so I went digging and found the answer. Well, it's turned out to be MY answer - your mileage may vary. I went to Settings>System>Battery>Battery Usage By App and toggled the Fitbit app from "Managed By Windows" to "Always Allowed In Background". I did this on Monday before the October Update and I haven't missed a notification since. In fact, I think my battery life has increased slightly which I would assume it's because the phone isn't always "Looking For Tracker" every time I go to the Fitbit app. Going to try on the HP x3 this weekend to see if it was a fluke or the real McCoy.

    The Fitbit Surge works fine on W10M.

    Still using Band 2 with bum GPS because it works well with 950 XL and the alarm actually wakes me up. I use a Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music for activities that require GPS, running, biking, etc. and sync with my Surface Pro or V20. I used a Fitbit Ionic for just under a month with V20 and returned because of defective battery and lack of app functions, mostly activity related. Garmin Connect is so much better. The Fitbit sync / notifications was sketchy with my Idol 4S and V20.

    Garmin Connect works really well now with my Lumia 950 xl and my Garmin fenix3 HR. I use to have frequent problems so I had to reset the app and pair my watch and phone again but they must have fixed it now everything has been working fine. It might not work with every Garmin watch, but fenix3 HR seems to be ok now with wm10 on lumia 950 XL.

    One week into the experiment and the x3 is working just as perfectly with the Ionic as the Acer Primo did. The watch reconnects with the phone immediately after I've gone out of range with no fuss.

    You realize, don't you, that this isn't exactly groundbreaking in the smartwatch world?

    In the Windows 10 Mobile world, it is. Or rather, it was.

    The Band 2 is still the best smartwatch to use with W10M.
