Best swim fitness watch that will sync with my fitness pal?

I have killed 3 Fitbit and one Garmin watches. My main purpose for this tool is for swimming and heart rate. I do not have a cell phone. So dear community, please recommend a watch that you have found that would be the best for me. I'm ready to invest in another tracker since I am doing well on this weight loss journey of 45 lbs. lost thus far. Thank you!

    What type of Garmin did you have? If it leaked or broke Garmin may even replace it.
    I've used my Garmin 920XT for the past four years and so far so good. I usually swim about 2 or 3 times a week. It syncs real well to the Garmin Connect app, training peaks, Strava, and also MFP.

    I just switched to an Apple Watch so that I could swim with it. So far it is holding up in the water but it’s only been about a week. I don’t expect any issues. I like it much more than I did my Fitbit.

    I've got 2.5 (?) years on my Garmin Fenix 5.

    Fitbit flex2 is designed to track swimming but I don’t think it has HR monitoring

    Fitbit has a new Inspire HR that tracks swimming. It’s time for me to replace as well and think I’ll go with that.

    I don't remember but it was replaced twice. I killed it for the final time in the Caribbean...didn't know salt water was a no no. Does your watch sync with my fitness pal?

    Doesn't the apple watch require using a cell phone? Does it sync with my fitness pal?
