    "I was looking for a fitness tracker gadget in order to help me with my fitness. With Misfit Shine 2, I found that I was using a less capable version of a fitbit. The LED lights were a cheap gimmick that made the product feel inferior. "

    "I'm really into fitness and really needed a new tool to help track my workouts. I must say I wasn't too happy with the Apple Watch Series 3 watch. Like many times before, I've been disappointed by an Apple product. There are so many better options out there on the market."

    "I especially loved the sleep monitoring and included app with this watch. I have had several that didn't sync, and it is sooo much easier to keep track of my progress now. Watching the gains ~"

    "I thought I had finally found the best fitness tracker on the market when I bought the Fitbit Flex 2, but what a disappointment this was. The device doesn't keep an accurate count of my steps, the battery died on me after only a month of use, and it won't even sync up to my phone. What a waste of $$ "

    "I found the Samsung Gear 2 a bulky smartwatch. I didn't like that it lacked a heart rate monitor since it was being billed as a fitness tracker. It also didn't include sleep monitoring that is usually included on fitness gadgets. It was cool that I could take videos with it but I didn't think that made up for all the negatives."

    "It is a good artifact, however, it is not my favorite nor the solution that I would give. On one occasion use one of these and in less than two months it no longer worked in its entirety, besides it does not provide an extensive list of functions. "
