    "This is a customizable new Fitbit product that is more stylish and interactive than other models of Fitbits. It's definitely worth it's value for a Fitbit or activity band enthusiast, but it's a little less economically sound than other Fitbit models. It does allow you to play music and have coaching in addition to the usual features though."

    "Overall very happy with my Garmin thus far. Have had it a few months now. Pros - Great features, fully waterproof, battery life is excellent. Lots of features and metrics available to track. Love all the plot available. App offers far more than the competition. I've also found the step count to be far more accurate than my prior tracker."

    "I was shocked at how good the Vivofit 2 was considering the price. Yes It doesn't have a heart rate monitor and it's tracking methods are a bit hit or miss but it pretty much has everything else including decent water resistance. Plus the battery is rated to last a year, that's pretty much awesome."

    "So this solution is perfect for me because I live by the fitbit. It has changed my life. I lost almost 80 pounds just by walking. Wearing the fitbit, it constantly gives me little "challenges" that are 1-5 minutes long. I take 50 steps and so on. This activity bit is like my best friend so I agree, its the BEST out there. "

    "I have had great experiences with this device as far as tracking information and being accurate. My only issues which is a major one os that it does not seems to sync to music so if music is a big part of your workout, you seen to sync multiple things which can be cumbersome. Customer service was great in helping me with a workaround, but this is still an issue that i hope they fic fix with an update or future products."
