My Fitbit Charge HR seems like it's starting to crap out and it's pissing me off (it's not tracking anything as well as it used to).

Does anyone have a Garmin or Apple Watch or anything else? Can I get your opinions on them?

I like to wear mine 24/7 and would use primarily for health purposes (tracking steps, workouts, heart rate, sleep).

Re: Activity Trackers

  • I have the Apple Watch. You have to charge it every night so I’m not sure you’d want for sleep - I’m not even sure it has a sleep option. It does steps, calories, couple workout apps etc. it also vibrates if you haven’t gotten up and moved around within the hour. 

    I used to use the Garmin VivoFit which was steps, sleep, calories etc. I did like that I could wear it all the time without needing to charge. It’s more basic though so good as a tracker but not the other stuff

    I went from a Fitbit HR to an Apple Watch.  Dh gave it to me as a graduation gift.  I like the activity rings, and we'll often get a little competitive with each other.  I find I still follow it more than I did the information on the Fitbit.  eventually, my fitbit just became a watch.  And I do like that I can get text messages, emails, etc. on the watch too

  • I got the Charge HR 2 this fall and I like it better than my old Charge HR because it tracks my runs and has the removable bands. My old one was having problems and customer service gave me a discount on a new one, which was the biggest reason I didn’t switch. The price of changing to an iwatch or garnish was just too much for me.

    I switched the Alta HR after my Charge HR died last summer, also at a discount from customer service when I complained about having to get a new one.  My Alta HR is way better than my Charge HR as well.  The battery lasts so much longer, and like Charlotte, I just couldn't justify the Apple watch price tag.

  • I know several people who have the Bellabeat Leaf wearables, one has a bracelet the other a necklace. They prefer the jewellery over the Fitbit or Apple Watch. 
  • I have a garmin vivosmart hr and I love it.  I've had it just over a year.  My band did break, but replacement bands are cheap on amazon.

    Thanks, ladies!!

    My health insurance has a wellness program with points I can use for amazon gift cards. Our rep just told me that the program syncs best with Garmin so I'll get more points. More points = more money! Plus I can get a pretty hefty discount on Garmins through the program.

    I LOVE the look of the Garmin Vivomove but it doesn't have as many features as the Vivosmart. :(

    Mrs.Conn - is it huge? It looks huge in the pictures and I was kind of worried that there were no pictures of anyone wearing it online. How often do you charge it?

    I've gotten in the habit of charging the fitbit when I shower. The 20 minutes once or twice a day is enough to keep it full. I'm hoping I can keep doing that.

    Here’s a pic of it on my wrist. I don’t feel it’s bulky at all.  Ignore my dusty ass desk.
