    "I needed a watch for my work as a meteorologist as well as my personal life, and this one has been acceptable. I like that it records barometric pressure- it's useful when having to write reports. That said, I wish it contained a thermometer as well. If it did, it would do my job for me!"

    "The Polar V800 really helped me reach my fitness goals. I used the tracker whenever I went out on my bicycle and it really helped. It kept track of how long I had been riding and seeing my process gave me the confidence to continue riding. I was able to ride up steep hills because of this and always gave my best effort. The GPS was very useful when I wanted to find a distinct route and the tracker never gave me any problems. It is one of the best smart fitness trackers out."

    "I am a person who gets bored with diet and exercise. I need something to track and keep obsessed about. I bought the Fitbit Ionic on a black friday sale.So I have had my Ionic for two weeks. My first impressions: easy to set up, clear and easy to use app, large watch but it is light weight I almost forget I am wearing it, very accurate steps, HR, etc., brilliant screen, many different faces, waterproof, long battery life, GPS. It will not be every for everybody but it is close. I highly reccomend it"

    "I bought this watch and have had only one complaint. The band is a bit uncomfortable and took some getting used to. Other than that it does everything I need. I like the bar code scanning feature that gives me all the nutrition data from foods when I am shopping. "

    "Garmin Forerunner does everything that you can possibly expect from a fitness tracker but it has two disadvantages. First, it is not very stylish; it has bold borders and the square shape is not good. Second, the price; you can possibly find OK fitness trackers with half amount of that money."

    "Same goes for this one. You can use the watch in some sort of activistic sense like negating "not" having what you want, but since "I" don't have one a bad rating is the best medicine for getting what we want.. an actually practical watch."
