Just the one on my iphone that tracks my steps, I was not a fan of the Apple Watch until I saw some of the cool business apps they have for it to pretty much keep and eye or run your business on the go, now I am tempted to get one.

I am a runner. I have used the runkeeper app on my phone for years & it's very good. I run with a polar heart rate monitor watch (FT4)once a week to check on the old ticker & it's OK - not great

Jawbone up since 8/2012.

Love the data, hate that I use the warranty exchange 2-3 times per warranty...on my 3rd tracker too.

It's allowed me to consciously lose 15lbs and create an on purpose exercise routine.

Like Patricia Kennedy I use a Garmin Vivofit because I take aqua fitness classes and I needed something waterproof.  I find it pushes me to hit an ever increasing goal everyday, as well as monitors my sleep.  There is also a heart monitor option, but I do not use that.

I have some cardio issues so I decided to get the fitbit HR that monitors my heart rate as well.  I like it, I've just been using it a few weeks now.

I use a Garmin.  I tried FitBit and the pedometer was totally screwball and it kept falling off because the band was poorly designed.  And the Garmin is totally waterproof with a long lasting battery.

Back in the day I used the BodyMedia devices and their fitness tracker.  Was the best on the market.  Probably would still be the best if Fitbit hadn't bought them and scuttled the company.  They had the best and most capable tracker on the market and darn good and functional software.

 

My mom uses the pivotal living tracker, but hasn't liked the accuracy.

 

What I've found, which is true for all fitness trackers, is that they don't work well for non-cardio based exercise.  Running, cycling, elipticalling they work great.  Walking around town, fantastic!  Lifting heavy weights, might as well take the tracker off.  None of them can track the exertion and calorie burn from weight lifting, especially for casual lifters.  Heart rate monitors come the closest.  For example, yesterday when I did reverse hack squats my heart rate got up to the +80% of theoretical max for a good 15 seconds or so near the end of the set and then calmed back down shortly after I finished the set.  Fitness trackers can't see that.  Heart rate monitors can.  The rare fitness trackers that tie into heart rate monitors do a great job there.

 

The bodybugg from Body Media (which as I said above was the best one ever, past to now IMHO) support forums said "When lifting weights, take the band off and enter the missing time as weight lifting and the exertion level and it would calculate everything for you."

I used the fitbit for about eight months and then it broke on me. It just quit working. I haven't replaced it yet. I loved it. I would challenge myself each day with it. My dog loved it, too, because I walked him a lot to meet my goals and to exceed them. 

I got it from my broker as a Christmas gift last year. He gave us an incentive to use the bracelet and exercise. Each month we met our target goal we got a $50 check.  I was right on track until the darn thing broke.
