Fitbit gave up the ghost, need reccomeded alternatives

Recommended Posts

Evening all, 

My 2nd fitbit in as many years has given up the ghost and will not be getting replaced. 

Like the heart monitor and steps of a fitbit but thats all i really use it for, any reccomeded alternatives that look good. Not wanting to wear the tag as i will damage it at work. 

 

Cheers

My wife uses "Very fit pro" easy enough for her to use, so I can recommend it

xaomi do cheap fitbit alternatives that apparently work pretty well.

 

Have you contacted Fitbit about it? They were good when mine broke, replaced free of charge etc.

Yeah the reason they wont replace it as its the second replacement after my original one stopped working. They dont warranty replacement ones

That's great for a product. Ha ha wouldn't have another one then.

Best one depends on what you want it for.

Wife and mother in Law have Pro Band 3's, also by Huawei.  They both like them.  They are water proof and can measure pool lengths and even which stroke you are doing.  They have the newer GPS system for running/walking/climbing, show your texts and call alerts (if you want).  Monitor sleep pattern, heartbeat and steps + more.

Aren’t you worried that Beijing may be monitoring your wife’s activities?

Yeah would have liked an actual watch not a smart one but not sure if such a thing exists. 

There are quite a few analogue smart watches. The Garmin Vivomove looks decent, there's also Fossil, Nokia etc.

  Don't forget the MiL, might accidentally "loose" both.

Shame,
