    Any of you guys doing the whole fitness tracker thing?
    Personally I like em, it gameifies something good for u but quite boring so little arbitrary valueless milestones work for me :)

    I like them. It's been a while since I have worn it day to day though.

    Having a heart rate monitor really helped me up my running. Just having that record to gauge off.

    I also love the sleep tracking. I am a terrible sleeper. It's cool to track that.

    Also stats are awesome

    I wear my Garmin for daily steps, sleep metrics and pair it with my different HR monitors when I'm arsed to go for a run or bike ride. Got really into wareables for a while but priorities changed and now I collect shaving gear instead :woot:

    Not a big fan of Fitbit as a majority of their units were/are non waterproof but I see they've finally caught up to the others in the new releases. Have owned a few Garmin's and currently use a FR 920XT as a daily tracker/watch. Sadly the industry is become a lot like smart phones where new units are marketed as the best/newest thing and 'older' models become obsolete very quickly regarding updates/improvements, etc. You pay $200+ for a tracker/watch and you're left wondering whether after 6-12 months it's still going to receive updates as the next new item hits the market!

    I was buying and refurbishing the FitBit Surge devices for a while. Managed to double my investment, and keep one in the process.

    Right now I use it for sleep tracking, and for the quiet alarm.

    I concur with the above, as you can see by my list I buy the basic one as I prefer a real watch and can’t get HR in a unit without also getting the time and I don’t Shwarzkof..
