Pairing with Apple Watch 5, which iPhone to buy?

My everyday phone is Samsung Note 8. Will never give it up

But my exercise tracker is AW Series 5. Borrowed a company iPhone X to do basic setup and returned the phone liao.

Now thinking of getting an iPhone just to pair with AW to look at daily exercise activities, heart rate and the standard stuffs. Will not be using it for phone calls (will not put sim card in it), whatsapp, email or even take photo. Most of the time the iPhone will be at home and only sync with AW when I am backed.

Do you think it's worth saving a few hundred dollars by getting a new iPhone 8 64GB just for such purpose? As from past history, I should be able to use iPhone 8 for another 2 - 3 years before it is phased out by newer AW models.

Any comments or recommendations are welcome.

I'm also using a Note10+ for work purposes and a 11 Pro Max as main. If you're just using it as a temporary solution before getting the new model this year, I suggest the XR. If using for longer term, you might want to invest in the 11 series.

I may get 11 pro for my wife and use her X as dedicated line and note 10+ for work. Lol
