Son of a Pronator Man
I have a fitbit charge HR, i was given it as a birthday prsent, I would not have bought it. It's abit of fun, I mostly use it as a watch and wake up alarm. This is demonstated by the fact that I take it off, and use my garmin when I am doing any proper exericse like running or biking. The HRM function is inaccurate, especially at the higher levels, it's probably accurate at resting levels but not when exercising, I think it records 10-15 bpm too high
If you can be bothered you can log food, fluid consumtion but as I am not trying to loose weight and I monitor my fluid intake by thirst and how dark my pee is, I don't get much out of that either. I see lots of people wearing them now.
