You see that spammed so what criteria do you use for best? And latest? Why is that a factor?

For me, spam really degrades a product.

Best Fitness Tracker Overall
by xboxphonenumber / September 17, 2015 8:23 PM PDT

Those looking for an all-purpose fitness tracker cant do better than the Fitbit Charge HR. This $149 device measures steps, calories, sleep and your heart rate, all day and all night. It has an understated design, comfortable strap, and its small OLED display can show you who's calling, too. If you want a general activity tracker to get a handle on how much you are - or aren't - moving, the Fitbit Charge HR offers the best combination of features and price.

I recommend the Jawbone's Up Move tracks sleep, steps, calories burned and the like with solid accuracy, then syncs all of that data to iOS or Android devices over Bluetooth.

Know more about the fitness tracker devices.
Here is the link.

I hope this will help your concern.
Have a blissful day!

Garmin VivoFit Fitness Band! My Entire Family is Using It!!!
by JSonger12 / December 18, 2015 5:53 PM PST

It all depends on your budget and why you're getting an activity tracker. I have found the ones with less features to perform a fairly accurate job compared to the ones with numerous features which usually have mediocre accuracy. Take for instance; some will come with HRM features; the question is do you really need an HRM features; if yes then it's one of the factors you should consider when getting your activity tracker.

On the CHEAP and all time usage factor I will strictly suggest the Garmin VivoFit Fitness Band, you don't have to worry about charging compared to the popular FitBit Activity trackers; and it's also not as expensive as the FitBit and other expensive stylish products you have out there.

Here is my personal review of the Garmin VivoFit Fitness Band.
