What is the point of activity trackers? What niche do they fill?
>>
Middle aged moms and young women niche

I recently ordered a Polar loop 2 + h7 heart rate sensor because I have a hard time evaluating the calories I burn. I oftentimes go for cardio sessions of several hours and want my calorie intake to be on point.

Out of curiosity what did you find? More or less calories than you thought?

I use several methods to round down on how many calories I burn to be safe when cutting. I use online calculators and round down my weight 10 pounds, round down to the next lowest .5 MPH, and round down to the next lowest 5 minute increment.

So when I run at 6.8 MPH for 34 minutes at 185 lbs for example I would put in 6.5 MPH for 30 minutes at 175 lbs in MyFitnessPal.

They are for the same bunch of idiots that think weight machines will make you healthier. The niche is "take my money", low information consumers. I can't blame these companies for trying to sell this shit tho, must be like printing money.

I wouldn't know since I'll only get them later this week. By the way, anyone interested in HR monitoring shouldn't be bothered with buying more than a H7 (or similar) and pair it to their phone, but I don't have a compatible device.

They're good if you sedentary as they remind you to move. Most of them have some sort of alert for inactivity. At my computer job it is a reminder to take a walk.

you can make sure you're still leaving humanity behind

To give you the false impression that you're actually doing something while providing tracking and biometric personal data to shit corporations that want to track you, profile you, and target you with shit they want to sell you that you don't want or need.
