    "The Garmin Forerunner 230 is one of the best fitness tech gadgets. It is a smart watch plus so much more. It has everything you need to track fitness goals, you can read emails, texts and see call alerts. It is kind of bulky but most smart watches are these days."

    "A very popular item and a go-to for many people but the realization that it's glitchy and pretty expensive for what it does makes me wonder if it will last. Overall if you're really into fitness gadgets I'd say get it, but it's not anywhere near the best."

    "This is a good solution but something that is mainly used for fitness might be better. This is a bells and whistles blaring smart watch with fitness features and a $249 price tag. I think fitbit or something similar would be a better solution at a fraction of cost. "

    "This Samsung Gear fitness tracker is alright, but I think that other brands in this domain work a little better. This device seems more prone to failure than its competitors - both the physical parts of the product and the electronics seem to display these tendencies. I feel like the Fitbit might be a better choice."

    "I bought the two pack for my wife and I direct from the company for $100. I've had a few other big name fitness trackers and returned them all. Not to say any of them weren't good, I just didn't think they were worth the price tag. This one however seems find that good balance between price and features. It's not as in depth as some others and really I like the different approach Moov took to fitness tracking. No steps or stairs counting just basic activity level throughout the day. It has goals and medals and levels to achieve etc. It has social features which are kind of fun, but my use is for myself mostly and don't really need to "compete" with anyone or prove I am more active than my friends on a daily basis.(or less active really). It requires NO charging which is one of the biggest selling points that drew me in. Not having to take it off and plug it in was important to both me and my wife. Battery life is TBD but for the price of a watch battery I'm back up and running. No worrying about internal battery recharge life or something going wrong. Simples and easy. I do NOT consider myself a world class athlete, just a dad who's metabolism isn't what it used to be and trying to get ahead and repair the damage I've done when I was younger and could do/eat (or more importantly drink) as I pleased."

    "Its a new year, and that means New Years Resolution. Time to try to lose some weight. On amazon i found a nice fitness tracker called Runtastic Orbit. It has some nice features not only the step counter but it also tracks burned calories and how much sleep your getting. I am embarrassed to talk of how many hours that counter says. Sadly the band is some what itchy and red so i often put the Orbit in the pocket casing it also came with."

    "This is a handy little gadget for fitness tracking. It is comparable to the Fitbit at a much better price point. It tracks what you need and it is comfortable to wear. I do wish it had a better screen to make looking at it easier, but you can see everything on the phone."

    "While I like these socks, and I feel that they are somewhat comfortable, I think for the price, they are a little overhyped for what they are. I feel that for the same price, you can get a Fitness watch tracker which is more stylish and does the exact same thing. Personally while working out, I would much rather use just a normal, comfortable pair of socks!"

    "Works exactly as described!! We took this camera diving with us in the Caribbean over the summer and accidentally took it down to 102 feet!! No issues whatsoever. The battery lasts a pretty long time and the pictures and videos came out great - excellent color correction!! Worked very well for snorkeling too. A good value for what it is. Love this camera - it's great for taking camping or other outdoor adventures, since I don't have to worry about damage, scratches, dust or water. It turns on and off very quick, and the pictures are great. Took it to Hawaii and it worked great for underwater pictures. It's the perfect device for me. I want to take good pictures, but I'm not willing to lug around a huge camera with lenses that is fragile. This fits in my pocket and I don't have to worry about it. "

    "The Switch seems like a decent system, but I was hoping for a more portable Wii experience, so that maybe I could work some gaming back into my workouts. Kind of missed the mark here, but could be fun on the way or during a break."
