Using dog tracker with watch instead of handheld

Anybody running tracking collars with a watch instead of hand held GPS?
I'm looking to buy my first collar and gps for my young dog.. I have never liked the idea of having to have a bulky hand held in your pocket or hanging around your neck, the watches, Garmin fenix 5x are more pricey but hey it's a price you would only hope to pay for once say every 5 years minimum...
Thoughts?

Don't the collars have to communicate with a specialised GPS unit, and not just any old GPS?
If they do work with the likes of the Fenix my main concern would be battery life.

There are specific watches that do talk to tracking collars.. the fenix range do.. battery life is a concern but if they are easily charged or replaced then happy days
