Does it track distance, time, etc. ? I'm training for a 5K.
This won't be great for the runners but I use Endomondo Sports tracker on my phone and keep it in my Camelbak backpack when riding on the trails. It keeps track of everything and has an audio coach to tell me to move my butt faster if I am slacking off.
I keep my phone in a ziplock bag with just the headphone cord running outside of it.
Welp I caved in and bought myself a FitBit Flex this morning. Been wearing it ever since and I'm impressed with it and so far it's made me conscious about what I'm eating, so it's already working. It's comfy and so lightweight that I almost forgot I was wearing it at one point and hit my head with it.
I think it's a great little product that works well with the s4 and will fit your needs. Good luck finding one though. The official site is 8wk backorder and I couldn't find other places online to buy at the same price. Stores around me were all sold out so I drove about 30mi away to get the last one at Target, one of the employees held it for me so I was lucky. These things are more popular than I thought they were.
Reading one of the really thorough reviews on Amazon for that Fitbit I am torn between that and the Jawbone UP. From what the guy said the Fitbit feels more comfortable, especially when typing on a keyboard.
The UP was better at tracking sleep, registered far less wake ups than the Fitbit did.
However, downside of the Fitbit were that water gets inside the band and starts to smell bad after awhile. There are those with the UP that are complaining the batteries died on them really early though, which is a downside.
Let us know how you like that thing after a week or so, another great Dez write up may be in order.
As for the sleep tracker, I'm not putting much belief into the quality of sleep I get from a wrist tracker. I personally believe that the only true way to measure quality of sleep is by attaching some device to your head as to track your brain activity, not your wrist activity. I'm using the sleep tracker to average out how many hours of sleep I usually get. Again, that's just my opinion on that feature of the device.
Logging food is easy, but some of the foods I eat aren't listed as alot are home made and I'm not willing to be a "calorie counter" either, but I'm trying at least.
I'll post up a review of it. If I forget remind me Sydman
