    I got a Fitbit for Christmas and I really like it. It has really kept me on track.

  • I used to be OBSESSED with my FitBit and would be crazy about just the counted steps. But, then gave it up because I was being obsessive about steps only. But, I am loving hearing about new/updated systems that focus on other health features.

  • Thank you for sharing these. I was actually thinking of getting one. I kinda like the sleek design of Fitbit but I think I need to see them all in person

    I’ve really been wanting a fitness tracker. Thank you for the options! I am not sure still which one I want, so I will have to take a look through each link.

  • My parents have fitbits, but I’m not sure which ones. They swear by them! Especially my step dad. He walks about 5 miles in the morning before he mows lawns all day. Which is probably why he doesn’t look 70 lol

  • I love the updates to the Fitbit. I got complacent with my Fitbit and stopped using it. I might dig it out now or better yet, buy a new one!

  • I really need one of these! I am working on getting fit and this would certainly help me to stay motivated!

  • This is on my want list for sure. I am really interested in a fit bit, I love the way they look too!

  • I have never had a fitbit tracker or any sorts and I truly need to get on the bandwagon!

  • We love our Fitbits! But we bought the charge just before they released the Charge 2 and now we totally envy. LOL

  • I’ve been wanting to get a Fit Bit, It may be a little Valentines gift to myself! I bought the Fit Bit Charge 2 for my daughter and she loves it!! I may get the same one for myself!

  • I love your list of fitness trackers, but was surprised that the Apple Watch didn’t make it. I love mine and have totally relied on it many times.

  • Thank you for sharing this – I was literally just looking at some of these yesterday because my boyfriend’s after one but we were so overwhelmed by how many there were with all the different functions. They are so confusing! I’ll tell him to read this to get his head round it xx

  • I’ve been on the fence when it comes to Fitness Trackers. Part of me thinks they are a gimmick but the other part of me thinks they are a great way to make sure you are getting most out of your workouts. Not sure if I will every try one, but I am considering it.

  • These are definitely great tools to have! Have you heard of the bella beat? it is newer and very cool!

  • I just got an iWatch and am trying to figure out if I can track everything with it. I really want to track my sleep too.

  • I have been debating which fitness tracker to get they are all the same yet different. Thank you for breaking it down and which is better for me to have. Here is to 10,000 steps a day.

  • What a great list of fitness trackers. I don’t have one myself but this list is a great quick review for when I do get one.

    So many fitness trackers. I would love to grab one to be able to track some things, especially my steps! I walk a ton and would love to see!

  • The Fitbit Surge is next on my list! I’m training right now post rehab and need some new equipment to get back in the swing of things!

  • Ive been looking around at fitness trackers! Glad to read a good review of them! I’m still on the fence on these or getting an apple watch. Great review.
