I got one of these when they were at £35 a few weeks ago.

I'm not sure what to quite make of it really. The hardware is good quality, no doubt but i'm not sure about the accuracy of the steps taken. I am part of a hill walking group and i've noticed that the amount of steps between us in the group varies a lot - a good few thousand steps, despite all of us setting off from the same point.

Secondly, my iPhone is a good few thousand steps away as well. Just the other day, my Garmin was telling me I had done 16,800 steps whereas my iPhone was saying 22,000.

I'm not sure which is right... could be a fad.

so you just need to wear this to lose weight, right?
The original ones were 100 quid cause it stopped fat greedy people buying snacks and takeaways. Now you can wear one of these to pretend you're trying to lose weight while still drinking 6 cans of coke a day.

The deal may be hot but please be aware that buying this will not prevent type 2 diabetes

The iPhone processor is incredibly accurate. I used to work in the sports industry (education) and we had incredibly expensive monitoring equipment. We tested the iPhone and Apple Watch and they both came within 1% of the gear we had. So I would say trust your iPhone and not the Garmin, personally.

I think all step trackers are nonsense, including expensive fitbits, and only good for comparing with yourself. A colleague claimed they did 45000 steps just 'walking around London all day' the other day...at a leisurely 5min/km pace I run at roughly 160spm. At that pace 45000 paces would be 56km (and at that speed, which she clearly wasn't doing, would take 4.5 hours!). There's no point crying BS as the fitbit says what it says, but it's not *actually* that many paces. My TomTom watch is just as bad, paces are a vague measure of how 'active' you've been from day to day.

I train most days, run or cycle and have done for years but for me I don't need one, go out get your heart rate up, you don't need a app phone or watch, get at least 30 minutes a day, watch what you eat, simples

More like about 34km. That's about 20 miles. Easily do-able in a day. By your calculations you'd have to have a stride length of 1.24m, which you would have to be a marathon runner to maintain.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming the Fitbit is accurate, but you can improve it by inputting your stride length on the app or web site - mine's about 75cm at an average walking pace. Your calculations are way off.

I bloody hate this site (_;) but cheaper than a fitbit that her indoors wants so badly, glad to see that battery lasts up to a year, this will record the energy used during our annual birthday romp X)

Wear it on your dominant wrist and you'll measure a lot more...

Train or just ride?

Training would normally mean having a plan, and monitoring your output. Good training would have you moving at set rates for set periods, and you usually want to cap your output (is 80% MHR).

Sure though, its not really needed, but if you really do a lot of training, then what is a few quid for some feedback?
#14
GPS is your best measure for distance with HR function. Tapping on a keyboard raises my step count...and relax.
#15
Quite pleased with mine, I'd say steps are a bit inaccurate but a guide to activity, switched to my left hand. Links with Myfitnesspal. Heart rate strap is decent. Way better than all the chinese ones I've tried and there have been many lol.

We use ours to track our levels for rewards on our healthcare plan, so the accuracy would be really important - quite worrying
