I have a FitBit Inspire HR – I swim, so it being waterproof is very important.  The only annoyance is that I have very sensitive skin, and the HR sensor tends to irritate my wrist, and I have to wear it on alternating sides.

I’ve had the FitBit Charge2 (I think) for years, and I love it. I use it for heart rate, sleep, and steps.

@teainthemountains:  both, looks like they canned it for the Fitbit Inspire. which is a shame because i liked the tap to progress through the screens function. I think the inspire has a physical button on the side and touchscreen but i heard the touchscreen isnt too reliable. My philosphy is less stuff = less items to break hahaha

I guess Id better take care of mine lol

Fitbit Charge 2 here. My favorite thing about it is actually the sleep tracker.

I have a Garmin Vivoactive HR. I don’t really use it daily for steps and things (which it does do), but love the variety of activities it will track (i.e separate tracking for running, hiking, ski touring, etc.). It is super ugly as it is so old, but it has lasted, and I think the new versions are much more attractive.

I used to have the tiny fitbit that I clipped to clothing, but ran it through the washer… The new ones seem bigger and I think all the wristbands are ugly, so I just got a pedometere since I am only interested in step count, not tracking my sleep or heart rate. It’s a cheap, easy, reliable way to track basic activity while you’re deciding on something nicer.

@j_jaye:  ha I didn’t know that. Should have gone the refund rather than replacement!

Yeah when mine started to screw up just three months in I went down an internet rabbit hole reading about experiences with fitbit and faulty products. It wasn’t until I mentioned it to a friend who is a lawyer that works in the ombudsmens office here in Vic and told her they wouldn’t replace only fix and she said “no, that’s not legal”. So we looked into it and found that the advice fitbit were giving was not lawful and found the ruling. I armed myself with the info and headed in to jb hifi where I purchased it from prepared to argue and they didn’t even ask let alone question it lol.

Have used a Fitbit for about a year and it has definitely inspired me to walk more.
