I know that everyone will gravitate to the fitness tacker that matches with their goals - mine is the Samsung Gear FIt 2.
Anyway - I hope everyone is as happy with their choice as I am with mine.
Whichever one you chose - make sure you order the screen protector when you get the tracker - I think they can take a beating.
The Fitbit Alta has most of those features, too. I am very competitive and love competing with friends. Most of mine have Fitbits.
Today most places have the Alta on sale for $99.

Hi Sharon -
I had one of those ugly Fitbits (Charge). I loved the features but hated the look, too. The one frustration I had with it was that in spin class, once I was sweating it would slip and lose the heart rate monitoring, so I was constantly rubbing my towel under the sensor.
I'm looking to buy a new one and wondering if you've seen this kind of thing with the Samsung?

I am not sweating up a storm like you would in spinning class - yet - still recovering from plastic surgery, so I can't exactly say. However, the GF2 has a larger flat spot - I cannot image how it could rotate on the wrist if it were snug. The GF2 is a 2 inch long gizmo that you attach straps to - it is not one integrated unit like the charge HR.
I'll try to post a photo of them both.
