My Review of The Spark Activity Tracker


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, October 17, 2013



For the past three weeks, I've been using the new Spark Activity Tracker. I've never really been into "gadgets" before. I have a pedometer that I pretty much never use, and I haven't been interested in getting a Fitbit, so I wasn't sure that I'd care too much one way or another about the Spark.

The Spark Activity Tracker arrived in a cute little clear box with easy to understand instructions, a wireless dongle that plugs into a USB port on your computer, and an extra battery. I thought I'd need my husbands help to get started, since he's the "computer whiz" in our house, but set up was so effortless that I was able to do it myself.

The Spark is small, and easily clips onto your shoe laces, bra or the waistband of your pants. I have found that it seems most accurate when clipped to my shoe laces, though.

What I love most about the Spark is that it motivates me to be more active during the day. It synchs with Sparkpeople, and I get trophies on my page, such as the "Glow Getter" trophy for getting 6,000 steps every day! (You can change your step goals to less or more than 6,000 if you want.)



The tracking page is great....you can see your daily progress (and weekly progress) with just a quick glance at the page. I love seeing how many steps I've taken, my distance, my total workout minutes and the amount of calories I've burned.

I would recommend The Spark to anyone who would like to add a little motivation and fun to their workouts. It will give you the incentive to move more throughout your day.

I received the Spark Activity Tracker for free from SparkPeople and did not receive any form of payment for my review.

    I have been thinking about getting one also but funds are really tight right now. I use a pedometer religiously so I know i would put this to good use. Will have to wait and see in the future.

    I got my Spark Tracker and I love it. It keeps me wanting to go farther everyday. It lets me know which days I been slack. I never knew that I didn't do what seems to be nothing at least not enough. With this I know that I will have to stay with the program, walking and tracking my food. emoticon emoticon

    Still like my pedometer. If I got a Spark tracker free, I'd certainly use it but I don't "need" it.

    I wish SPARK had mentioned that they were working on their own tracker when they sang the praises of the Fitbit, which I paid too much for to replace in less than a year... disappointed... a lot!

    Thanks for taking the time to review the product. It always sheds a better light (IMHO) to read a review from a consumer than read an ad.
