I agree! I had another type of monitor that's pushed here on SP and on a certain TV show and it was a complete and utter waste of money. Not only was it completely obtrusive because I had to wear it on my arm, which meant alot of people asked questions. It also was VERY inaccurate. It would count activity if you walked or ran, but if you rode a bike, lifted weights or did the stepper, it counted zero activity. I complained to the company and their answer was to take the monitor off during that kind of activity and then manually load it! WHAT IS THE POINT? Also they charged a monthly fee!
With Fitbit, I've had none of those problems. SO MUCH BETTER at counting activity and no monthly fee. Plus I like the fact that it calculates my daily calorie intake based on my activity.
