    "The Apple Watch. Yet another fantastic product by Apple. It's very streamlined in it's look. Only problem is that it doesn't work unless you have an iPhone 6 or above. If you enjoy Apple products, then you are sure to enjoy this one! It even works great if you accidentally drop it or if you get it a little wet as well!"

    "There's better apps on the market for this than the one given, to me it's very clunky and doesn't really give me what I need."

    "I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a smart watch so after doing tons of research, I ended up purchasing a Samsung Gear Fit2. I am very glad I did. It fits my needs almost perfectly. Samsung Gear Fit2 has all the features the advanced tracker haves (steps, counter, heart rate) plus it also lets me store music directly onto the tracker so I can listen to my favorite playlist while I workout. The screen is gorgeous but the text is small and it can be hard to see sometimes especially when I'm outside and it is sunny. "

    "This product has no place to even be considered one of the better smart bands. The software is lacking in functionality and the calorie tracker in horribly inaccurate. Definitely avoid if you can."

    "The Garmin Vivosmart 3 is a decent activity tracker with a few shortcomings. The screen can get hazy and hard to read. Also the charging cord is proprietary so good luck finding a cheap replacement/substitution. It'll do what it's supposed to do but it's pretty average."

    "This TalkBand was a complete waste of money. It's not only really difficult to set up, but it has an abysmal battery life. I can't even wear it at work without it dying."

    "I am absolutely loving this fitness tracker. The Misfit Ray is stylish, lightweight and very fashionable with many different colors to choose from. It is easy to sync with your devices and track your vitals, steps and you can even swim with it. You would think something this fashionable and modern would come with an expensive price but that isn't the case, a great deal and value! "

    "I have owned many fitness trackers and have lost weight at the beginning of using each one. The excitement of counting steps in the beginning motivates me to get moving. However, once I get used to hitting my goals there is nothing new to see and eventually I get bored. This watch is completely different than other watches because it monitors your fat to muscle composition and stats of your workout. It is so much fun to look back and see how your body is changing not just weight but also muscle and endurance. I would not use another fitness tracker."
