I have been wearing my Spark People Activity Tracker AND my Fitbit Zip. I have been really Loving both of these little pieces of motivation!! Usually one says I have far more steps then the other- but I still like to wear both now.

I have a Spark Activity Tracker. It does pretty good, except for the home elliptical which records as a 'bike event'. If I use the gym elliptical, it doesn't capture all the activity, but other than that, I like it a lot.

I keep thinking about getting a FitBit but I don't have a lot of money to invest in one right now. Right now I don't have an activity tracker, and I think I'm doing okay.

Feel free to add. We can always use more friends in life!

I have the Spark tracker... I have GOT to say I LUV it! I also have a different tracker. It is a fitbit but the cheaper one. Can't think of what the name is: zip? is that correct?

Anyway. I solely use the Spark Tracker. I find that one to be pretty accurate with my movements. Sometimes it get things wrong- but I usually can correct it. I had trouble with my first dongle too. But I bought a new one. What I didn't like was that I had to buy a new one, but I did- and I have been good since.

I find the trackers really keep me motivated. I ALWAYS put on my tracker every morning. It just doesn't seem right without it!

I have many. I lost my Spark Activity Tracker (and then found it) and work did a fitbit challenge last fall, so I bought a fitbit zip. I still use the fitbit, and I love it.

I have used a BodyMedia for almost a year, but it currently stopped working on me. Since Jawbone absorbed the company they stopped making them so I am waiting until the new Jawbone with sensors comes out in January (previously BodyMedia and BodyBug were the only ones with sensors which what made them a more accurate tracker). So in the interim, I will be using a much cheaper (pretty much a glorified pedometer) one by Sketcher.

I had the SPARK, but the dongle on it continuously stopped working one me so I ended up with the BodyMedia which a friend gave to me.

The tracker definitely helps me, it keeps me motivated and I do think that is what helped me A LOT this last time with my weight-loss. Especially with the mine I had the calorie deficit to try to reach everyday as well as the activity goals.
