I had a Fitbit Charge 2. It was neat, but I got rid of it since it's not waterproof and has no GPS so the running distance tracking isn't particularly accurate.

I'm currently using a Garmin Vivoactive 3, which fixes both of the above. Only had it a week so far, but pretty impressed with the results.

Iím now thinking a Samsung fit 2, a lot cheaper & has everything I want, I was set in a Fitbit Versa there, nearly bought one today and didnít get the deal I expected. Apple is too expensive.

Well I finally bought one.

I got the Fitbit versa, I can track my swimming with it and Iím loving getting the notifications of calls and texts to my phone, very cool. I havenít gone through all the features yet, but Iím loving keeping track of my heart rate and steps, Iíve done 12500 so far today. 6.31pm here.
I walked to and from work, had a reasonably quiet day at work, then went grocery shopping after work.
I tossed up for so long between the apple, Samsung and Fitbit, I decided that for what I wanted, It was best value for my money.

I have a fit bit and I think it's fun but when it comes to counting steps it not entirely accurate. This is because you wear it on your wrist and so it calculates some arm movements as steps. I remember someone joking on a talk show once how weird it was that their teenage son's Fitbit says he takes 20,000 steps a day yet he never leaves his room, lol.

Fitbit Flex 2

I am using a Fitbit Flex 2 waterproof fitness tracker to track steps, distance, calories burned and activity time. Everything is fine. The manufacturer says it is waterproof, but I have not tested its waterproof rating and I don't think it is completely waterproof.

Yes, I found it very interesting that Iíd done 5,500 steps sitting in our motor home going over bumpy roads yesterday yet if Iím driving in my car on smooth roads no steps are recorded so itís not completely accurate.
On a positive note Iíve lost weight, my doctor didnít recognise me last time I saw him and Iíve managed to lower my blood pressure medication by being fitter.

I have tested my versa in the pool, it works fine but does record slightly more metres than Iíve actually done.

I'm back to wearing mine. I don't get many steps when I push a shopping cart through the grocery store or pull wheeled luggage behind me with that hand.

Yes,I am using Fitbit Blaze from over a year now and the best thing I liked about it is we don't need a watch on our wrist anymore. So, I greatly suggest everyone to use this.

I like the Apple Watch, as it goes well with my iPhone. The Apple Pay feature us very handy ;-)
