    sooo where is the 'bodymedia fit" The bodymedia fit is STILL THE MOST ACCURATE but none of these videos that display "fitness trackers" never show it.

    A previous cnet video showed how crappy the withings was. Compared to an ekg it was over 50 bpm off, not to mention you have to take it off whatever and put your finger on it?? Plus no 24/7 hr monitor??? I went ms band have not been disappointed.

    Why would ANYONE spend ALL of that MONEY on a FITNESS TRACKER. U don't need a fitness tracker to stay fit.

    The Withings Pulse o2 was actually the first fitness tracker I tried.  I need one with a HRM because I do more lifting than cardio.  I liked it but I ended up returning it because the HRM is inconvenient to use being on the back of the device and doesn't work very well.  It does fine with resting heart rate but freaks out when your heart rate is elevated.  Plus I think ANY fitness tracker that isn't waterproof is ridiculous.  Having to take the thing off to wash your hands defeats the purpose of these things which is to wear them 24/7.  Now I am going back and forth between the Polar Loop and the Garmin Vivosmart.  Both do some things very well but neither of them do everything right.

    Nike still makes the fuelband and it's great.

    I'd say Microsoft Band was worth mentioning too because in its class, the Band is comparable with WP, Ios and Android, it also  has a pretty solid battery and some kind of useful sensors

    A notable exclusion here is the Withings Activité watch which is probably one of the best watch / fitness tracker devices out there.

    I have no idea why the Polar Loop wasn't mentioned.. it's never failed me… i can track how my workouts are going since i can use my h7 with it.. a feature none of those have.. and it has its own trainer if you purchase it on the polar beat app.. meh.. guess its just a cheap promo for all the rest of the shitty activity trackers.. btw the fitbit flex is horrible.. gave it back once i noticed that its much more expensive than the loop and it doesn't accurately track your steps since it thinks you're walking when you're in a car

    Whoever is paying over $200 for a fitness tracker is wasting their money. They all do the same thing. Why spend so much more?
