>>35595785 decided they are complete bullshit after my friend's gf showed me a report claiming she'd burned 2700 calories that day while working at a supermarket for 6 hours then going home and sitting on the couch
Against the crowed here. I love mine. I'm very conscious of long stretches of inactivity, being lazy for a day now. I'd say that if you weren't committed before, don't bother. But if you are, may as well add another tool to the tool belt. Plus knowing how much sleep I got from the heart rate tracker mine has is nice.
Yes It's worth it....and for 1 reason only...the social aspect.

>all this hate I don't know what you all are using it for but it's great for cardio. It tracks your heart rate and tells you if you're heart is beating too fast, it also tells you the distance and steps you take when running. Personally I only use this for when I'm running and doing cardio, not every day stuff because that doesn't matter to me. Yeah the calorie burner is fucked up, I don't even understand it. You all should use myfitpal or chronometer for that.
>>35597010 use the calorie feature and log your workout to give a rough estimation on how many calories you expend and consume. I assume you have the flex. Use myfitnesspal to log food and connect it to the fitbit app so you can see macros on myfitnesspal.
Get the Charge HR. Unless there's a heart rate monitor, it's useless. The monitor is bang on accurate (within 3 bpm compared to a chest strap monitor), and tracking sleep and cardio is very useful. The interface is super simple as well. They come on sake sometimes. Wait it out and you can find them for $25-$50 off regular price.
>>35596947 they're too expensive for what they do a $40 bluetooth heartrate monitor would cover the same functions, only it wouldn't be a cool trendy meme watch you can show off to all your cool trendy goy friends who love marketing memes
I have the Charge HR. It's great for getting you thinking about things like:
>am I getting enough sleep >do I drink enough water >am I getting up and walking enough during the day
I don't get the people who say it overestimates calories burned. I dialed myself in and it's tracked fairly accurately for me. I'm male, 6'0", was around 210 lbs when I got my Fitbit, now I weight 177lbs.
I'm actually thinking about getting the new Blaze just because it looks more like a watch and is less of a trendy gadget, but I already have a Fitbit so it's a bit of a waste.
