Would I buy this watch?

If I really need the features that will make my day to day fitness regime I would love to buy this. But for the price maybe not. It is still expensive (as of this writing). I know that some smartwatch has some of this features at a cheaper price.

Who would I recommend this to?

For those who are fitness nerds that don't care much about the price, but focuses on the features and quality of the watch itself.
