What does /g/ think about fitness trackers?

Smart watches are becoming a new trend but I don't see them as more valuable than the data provided by something like a fitbit.

Enjoy your voluntary electronic shackles.

consumer shit.

not interested in wearables until i can get some dilapidated electronics surgically implanted in a back alley .

It's fun, I feel like a little prisoner wherever I go.

I am thinking about getting one to count my faps and maybe even sync it up with fap hero

Wearable snake oil. It's something people will use for a couple of months then throw away.

They are worthless, unless you're a fat fuck who is obsessed with beating numbers everyday.

try a xiaomi mi band first, you can get them for £6 instead of the £50 a fitbit costs, then if you like the mi band move to a garmin, sunnto, or tomtom watch don't bother with fitbits expensive and there's better wearables.

What does a fitbit track that my Moto 360 doesn't?

Oh god, all I heard this xmas break when visiting the family was about those stupid fit bits.

>tfw my mother wears this every day and will just march in place barely moving her legs and just swinging her arms to get up to her daily step count.

It is a sad sight to see.

It's as good a tool as you make it, that's like saying dumbbells are useless because you saw someone using them wrong.

Its bretty gud at motivating you to complete the basic daily exercise goals.

I look forward to the day they can tell me all my vital signs, keep track of everything I ate, and release nanites to enhance repair.

Literal botnet on your wrist.

they are very basic smartwatches, or slight extensions of your phone as they vibrate for calls and notifications

some have HRMs and other sensors to read biometrics.

Girl friend got me one for christmas, no conclusion as to whether or not it's any good, but i'll say this, it is interesting to see my metrics for different days, one I'm working and my heart rate is X and some other day I'm hungover and my average heart rate is higher, it's interesting to see that a hangover is more taxing on your heart than an average day.
