I'm looking for a GPS that I can use with my smart phone. I want to be able to use my phone or GPS (but preferably my phone) to pilot way points and then just use the watch as a compass for distance and direction. I dont want a map on the watch or have to use it to try to plot the points. Anyone know of a watch that can do this? The best would be if it linked to onx app.

Onx on your phone gives you distance and direction. What do you need the watch for?

I was hoping to use the watch so I dont have to keep taking my phone out and I could save the battery on the phone

Check out the Garmin Fenix series GPS smartwatch. Love mine

I have a Fenix, it's great but won't sync with OnX like you want. I'm not aware of any that will.

I have a barely used Suunto Traverse Alpha for sale if interested.
