Are you using any fitness tracker?
« on: February 17, 2017, 01:45:38 pm »
Been doing research on fitness bands for... quite some time... *cough cough* sorry, @beaverjuice @chiasmus this is fitbit dilemma 4.0.

first set my eyes on fitbit charge 2


but after reading up all the complaints on fitbit community forums, i begin to wonder if it's really worth my $200.

Then i thought maybe can save that $50 and get just their charge HR. But the aesthetics of it is really....


then i came across jawbone up4


which is really pretty, but once again, tons of complaints with inaccuracy and discomfort in wearing....

and of course, there's garmin vivofit 3


and their vivosmart HR


my main focus on getting a fitness tracker is to get a better gauge of how much calories i burn each day (both my BMR + activities). Or should I just save my money and rely on the rough estimation from myfitnesspal app?  :-\

ok, took the plunge and bought fitbit charge 2 last night (with the pink straps).

was seriously considering between fitbit and garmin, but everyone is telling me garmin looks super ugly.

The ankles must be thin and delicate to wear something that was intended for wrists in the first place.

Yes, the pink one looks best on ankles!
