Cycling Smartwatch Recommendations

I am in the market for a smartwatch that has good cycling functionality. What do people recommend? I am most interested in stress, sleep and recovery data and analysis (HR, HRV, Sleep stages, etc).

Please let me know if there is already a thread for this and I will follow it.

There are watches like Apple and Samsung that are very good at extending the smart magic of your phone onto your wrist, and have ok cycling modes. These have beautiful screens and short battery life.

There are watches like Garmin, Suunto, Coros, etc that are made for sports use, have excellent cycling features, and are ok about smart features but not great. These have great batteries usually and decent screens.

I've been very happy with the Garmin Fenix watches.

+1 on Garmin watches. I used my Forerunner 745 for a year until recently when I bought a dedicated bike computer.
