  1. I have the Fitbit Charge. I won this device from a contest on Fitbit's page. I DO love it, but it isn't perfect. I am on my second warranty replacement with a 3rd replacement on the way (kudos to Fitbit for their warranties) due to a blistering and peeling band. I really like the Fitbit in general, but when my warranty is up, I may have to splurge for the surge to avoid having to throw away a device because it is no longer wearable due to a non-removable band.

  2. In my opinion fitness tracker is very useless thing. It's inaccurate and you can probably calculate calories burned and distance traveled within 30 seconds in your head.

    Best way to track your activities is with GPS enabled device. You can upload things on strava to track your records, monitor progress, elevation, compete with other people etc.
    Bottom line is if you don't really give damn about exercise performance, productivity, improvement, training schedule save your money and forget about stupid fitness tracker.

  3. I am wondering about Nike. I have used one for just over 2 years now with various hardware and software problems, Nice people on the help desk, but Nike appears to be closing the division, and , as I know, that for all I like it, it is now a couple of years behind the newest products.

    news today of a $16 band being released in China. Oh my !
