  • ok so the fit bit charge 3 is pretty good so far! didn’t realise how advbanced they are



  • I used to have a Fitbit surge which I loved, kept me motivated but I was on the lookout for something that didn’t look like a fitness watch so that I could wear it out to dinner and social occasions. I now have the rose gold Fatmin vivo ove HR and I love it. I get so many compliments on it, it has the analogue hands and when you look at the screen they move out of the way and the digital display appears. It shows the time and date and you can scroll to see steps, heart rate, stress level, I can control Spotify and preview my emails, messages etc. it syncs well with the app and battery lasts a couple of days.



  • Garmin vivofit look really nice, more like a dress watch then a plastic looking fitness tracker. Or the Fitbits are good and I have also used the Apple Watches which have a fitness tracker inbuilt, quite pricey but all depends what you want it for.



  • I have a Garmin forerunner 235 and love it! It has a gps, so you can track the distance of you’re walk/run. It’s great



  • I had a FitBit HR but I didn’t like how it felt on my wrist – it was either too tight or too loose.



  • I had a Fitbit Charge HR, which was replaced twice under warranty (cosmetic issues). When another cosmetic issue came up again, they gave me a discount for a different model. I went for the Alta, because I like the thinner wristband.
    I like the phone notifications and silent alarm features.



  • I have a Fitbit and love the brand. I broke the connection on the band a year or 2 ago and emailed them to ask if they had that bit available or it there was somewhere I could go to fix it. It wasn’t a fault or anything, I just broke it while playing at a play centre. They said they weren’t really fixable and they sent me a new FitBit. It wasn’t in the warranty period and had no fault. They were amazing. Great customer service. Just check out the features available and decided what is important to you to help you choose a model.



  • I have a very basic flex 2 but I like it. It reminds me to move and lets me know if I have a phone call or text. That is all I want it to do so its perfect for me.



  • I have a Fitbit charge 2 and it’s pretty good, just have to clean it every week or so…



  • I would look at product reviews and price ranges and go from there.



  • I love keeping track of my steps and other alerts.



  • I love my Garmin vivofit



  • I posted a similar question a little while back and got some great answers. If you search for fitness tracker you will see the answers – helpful answers too! :)



  • depends what you want it to do – I bought a samsung watch to pair with my phone but it cost a bit!



  • Depends what you want out of it I had a basic fit bit and it met all of my needs.
