The problem with a fit bit is that the display is way too dim. I’ve had one for a while. I can’t even read it if I am outside in the sun. Very common complaint if you do much research.

My FitBit thinks I'm walking when we drive on a rough road and the wheel vibrates! Really! I get a lot of miles just sitting on my butt.

That is another reason we went with the Garmins, the numbers were larger than many we looked at.

My arms don't seem to be long enough anymore, even though I have long arms!

The Physical Therapist my wife is seeing recommends she get a Smart Watch to track her walking distances and other health items.. She doesn't need a real Smart Watch but rather something basic.. I am looking at the Samsung Forerunner 35.. I have read the reviews on the watch but they all sound like they were written by an Advertising Agency rather than actual owners.. anyone care to comment on this particular watch? Thanks Travel Safe


I’m “not a fan” of some the wrist worn units. You can sit at a desk typing all day, and be credited with thousands of steps! Not exactly a good means of tracking your steps! memtb

Does it track how much time is spent in the lawn chair drinking beer?

Most android phones will monitor your walking/running with free app. No need to buy anything.
