I think there is no "the best suitable models for Locus". The addon can run on newer and on older devices too. I have Samsung Gear Live (it was released in 2014) and the addon works fine for me.
There is no special requirements for the watch because this addon is only a visual extension of the phone applicaton. It doesn't use any special hardware of the watch (eg. hearth rate/gps etc...) it shows only what the phone collected.
I suggest that you choose a watch what best fits your requirements (functionality/looks like etc...) and then you can ask it here may someone has experience with that watch with Locus.
The only thing what I would consider if bought a watch the hardware buttons. In my experience the touch screen is unusable when it raining. The actual addon doesn't support buttons but maybe it will in the future.

Hi Milan,

thank you for this addon! Saturday I did a 3 hour workout with this addon and it worked fine. It was stable and fast. I used 1.5 hours with "display always on" mode and 1.5 hours with "display always on" disabled. In the first case the application consumed abut 10% battery and in the second case about 35%.
I have Nexus 5x with Android 8 and Samsung Gear Live with Android Wear 1.5.
One can use "always on" mode in workouts <3 hours and for longer workouts the "always on" mode should be disabled.

Some suggestions:
#Wet clothes can cause unexpected touches on the screen this is why better if you put recording controls to different page or combine the controls with unimportant statistical data in this case the user will not leave the screen here and it will not cause any unexpected touch a trouble with recording.
#Device and wear battery level indicators and/or alerts,
#configurable statistical data (what I want to see in the stat panel is depends on the workout),
#configurable ambient mode (invert mode on/off)
