    "I have had several fitbit models and most have had a problem or two. The support is not that great either. It has features that I like and most do work well and seem pretty accurate. I do not like the music transfer , it barely works at all. Seems to take forever. If your playlist is the reason you want one, I wouldn't recommend these at all."

    "I like the look and feel of this device and especially appreciate the extend battery life that I get from it; a change of pace from some of the newer smart wearables. I would say this is better than the average activity tracker and good if you want to track daily steps and you train pretty hard. The Garmin vivoactive 3 will provide you with the information you need."

    "If you can get this on sale it's not a bad deal. Otherwise I would not be too happy. I found it difficult to operate and questioned the accuracy of it. I will use a couple of features, but not very often."

    "While this is indeed a modern gadget designed to monitor my health, I am not impressed with it. I cannot agree that it is one of the best items out there that fit this description, since it doesn't have the same sort of backing that Fitbit does, nor the aesthetic appeal and accuracy. It qualifies, but it's just not up there."

    "As a personal trainer I do use this machine on larger clients that I can't use calipers on. It's pretty accurate, but I would say it has about a 3% overage. So you are actually probably 3-% less than what the reading states. I have compared this to calipers and it's relatively accurate and useful for those who are larger and cannot be pinched. "
