I absolutely love mine, and I feel like it is the best investment I've made on my WLJ and lifestyle change. I wear mine every single day!
What I like about it: * It keeps me motivated to get up and move more! I have mine set to reach 12,000 steps a day! * It tracks my workouts for me, instead of me having to manually go into my fitness tracker, finding the activity, tracking the time and calories burned. I can just go to the gym or go for a walk, and not have to focus on all that stuff. Just sync it up, and bam, there it is! :o)
What I don't like about it: * I work as a custodian, at an elementary school, and so I walk around a whole lot. Sometimes, after getting home from work and syncing to the computer, it tells me I have a 10 minute unclassified workout, and it counts it towards my daily calorie range (giving me more calories to eat). It's not really THAT big of a deal, but I don't consider what I do at work as intentional exercise, so I don't like that it counts it. (Note: It ONLY counts it when I am walking around non stop for at least ten minutes)
I use mine to help me gauge my daily activity and I feel like it motivates me to get more movement in. For my workouts, I wear it, but I rely more on my heart monitor watch/band. I find that it works best on the top of my shoe or clipped to my sock.
I am back after a few months of backsliding and am excited to see this Activity Tracker. Do you have one? If so, what do you like about it? What do you dislike about it? Is it worth the price? Please do let me know :)
