Help me pick a smart trainer

So I’ve been using trainerroad for the past two years with a dumb trainer and a power meter. Looking to upgrade this year and have a couple options. I’m looking at overall value and best bang for the buck. I can get a new gen 1 hammer For 600 plus tax; an H3 with 20% off for 799 plus tax; or a used KICKR core (newer and with no known issues, used a handful of times) for 775 with no tax.

Any reasons to choose one over the other when just going by coat? Am I losing any functionality by going with the hammer vs the H3 or KICKR?
