Okay, so I have had my Spark tracker for about a week now and I am a little more impressed than the first couple of days I had it. It seems to track my steps well. A lot of people have said that is misses steps a lot when compared to their pedometer on their phone or their fitbit. Well I don't have either one of those to compare, I am only using the Spark tracker to monitor my steps. The workouts that I have been doing while I have been wearing it were not picked up as what it was, but it did pick up the steps I did while I was doing it. I didn't expect it to pick up the type of exercise since I was just doing a Biggest Loser workout dvd. I was also wondering how it was supposed to know what type of exercise you were doing and didn't think that would be very accurate.
Anyway, I guess overall I am decently happy with the tracker. I must say it is pretty motivating when you tap on the tracker to check you status for the day and you see more and more of it light up as the day goes on. I have had 3 days in the week I have had it where it lit up completely. I think that's pretty good considering I have a sedentary job. I was really surprised that one of those days was yesterday. On the weekend, Sunday one of my laziest days usually! So I guess I have decided to keep my Spark tracker as it does count my steps and motivates more than not having it. I guess how happy you are with the Spark tracker kind of depends on what you were expecting from it. Hope this helps anyone who was thinking about buying one.
