I know that everyone will gravitate to the fitness tacker that matches with their goals - mine is the Samsung Gear FIt 2.

  1. I work on the 3rd floor of an old building with no elevators, so I wanted to track the flight of stairs that i do each day.  (Last week, I averaged 24).
  2. On the weekends, after my planned activity, I can be a couch potato, and I drive alot, so I wanted a vibrating alert when I had been sedentary too long.
  3. I wanted to know my sleep patterns.
  4. I hate the ugly bands that come with most fitness trackers, so I wanted lots of bands available on the after market.
  5. I wanted some water resistance, if I could not ge****erproof.
  6. I wanted continuous Heart rate monitor.

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.

The Alta does not track HeartRate or Flights of stairs, but the social media can be fun.

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.
