Ask your question

  • 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.



  • I used an old fashioned pedometer for years and when I got a fitbit it was way way out in how accurate my step count was. It would say I’d done 50k on a day which I know would be around 15k. So I just took it back after a couple of weeks.



  • I had the original fitbit charge and loved it! However I needed to replace it three times due to the band bubbling & pulling away from the tracker. They’ve changed the design now so it can’t do this anymore, which is great as that was the only flaw. I have the Ulta HR and think the Charge was more accurate at detecting the heart rate. I picked the Ulta because of the thin design but regret that decision now lol!



  • I have Garmin Vivofit 3 and I love it.
