fitness trackers

Monday, May 18, 2015

So, I lost my spark tracker yesterday on a long bike ride in Denver. I'm pretty sad about it but it is what it is. I know I am not the only one who this has happened to! Just after two years of wearing it everyday, I dont have it and I feel NEEEKKKKEEEDDDD!!!!!!!

Anyways, that means I'm in the market for a new one and am probably NOT going to opt for the Spark because I don't want to lose it again...so I'm looking for something that I can put on my wrist or has a less liklihood of getting lost. ALSO, maybe something that tracks sleep and elevation would be nice too.

Any recommendations??!!??

    It's too bad you lost your SPAT.

    I also have a Fitbit One and I wear it 24/7 except for showers and charging. I'm not sure what you mean by tracking elevation, but it does count flights of stairs (sort of - I find that it is not totally accurate for that) and that is an elevation calculation of sorts.

    I wear mine clipped to my bra when I'm up or in its wristband at night for tracking sleep.

    Fitbit recently changed the exercise parameters so that you need 10 continuous minutes for it to count, so I have been adding the stuff it doesn't count to my Spark tracker manually. It still sends over steps, etc. From my experience with it, I think that this is kind of overkill... Before, I thought it was crediting my with too much "moderate" exercise, now I feel that it is crediting me with too little...

    Overall I'm happy with my Fitbit.

    So sorry you lost your tracker! I've lost a few as well.

    I love my fitbit. I have the Fitbit one, but they've come out with some really cool ones this year. My Fitbit one does track sleep, but not elevation. I think the other ones do though.

    Happy Shopping.
