Had a look at the different models, that came out best when comparing what I wanted it for. Gonna try inputting all my food & drink on the app you get with it, never done it before that detailed. 99% sure I'll get bored of it after about a week and fuck it off, so it will be 119.99 well spent. Makes you appreciate exercise more after not being able to do much for 2 cunting months.

Got all sorts on it though, interested to see my sleep analysis stats as I'm such a light sleeper and convinced I get next to fuck all proper sleep a night. Multi sport tracking will be good to use aswell when playing/training. We'll see how long it lasts...
i've never bothered with them. i've heard from people that have them that the tracking is inconsistent.

i just use my garmin watch and/or strava app for runs/rides, myfitnesspol to track calories/macros, and my phone for steps etc. it's enough to give me a general overview of the info i need without spending extra.

How much was the garmin watch? Did look at those, pretty pricey tho' and I couldn't wear one for sports as they look pretty big?

They're decent tbh

The tracking is a little off at times (would average around 500 steps while DRIVING to the shops ), but overall I think they're good and I found myself getting very competitive with family members who had them

I had one for about 18 months then upgraded to a garmin fenix which is a cracking bit of kit, but the only reason I wanted to upgrade was because the Fitbit didn't have GPs so I'd have to take my phone when on runs (to link it to the phones gps)

Didn't really use the sleep app on it either because I found it a twat to sleep with it on. But overall it's decent enough.

I've got the fenix. Absolute beast of a watch and i only wear other watches if it's a bit more of a posh'un occasion. Seems to be superbly accurate (as you'd expect with a give-a-give-garmin)

Awesome ain't they!

I bought a nice strap and just change the strap if I'm going out for a meal etc

They're massive though and could never sleep with it on
