    "Fitbit is reliable. They are the most popular brand of activity trackers for a reason. I love this device, and I've tried a lot of them. I love that I don't have to worry about taking it off in the shower or pool too. "

    "Garmin vívoactive is a bit larger than I expected but I don't mind very much because it is a very thin and flat watch so that makes the width and height more tolerable for me. All of the functions work incredibly well and the band is very comfortable."

    "I used to own the Fit-bit, but honestly, I didn't like the aesthetics of it. Then I came across this watch by Garmin and saw that it was also waterproof. I have been using this for swimming and it has had great performance. The only issue I have is that it does not track heart rate, but hopefully in the future they will update this. "

    "I've owned a lot of fitbits in my life. I always liked the app and the fitness data associated with these devices. I purchased the apple watch and i hated it because it didn't have the fitbit data and tracking. Although this device doesn't have a microphone or speaker the buzzing notifications for texts and called posed no issues. I'm happy with the fitbit Ionic and don't regret ditching apple for this."

    "I've only had this for about a month now, and it seems to be having no issues. I have worn it in the shower and in the rain and had no issues with it breaking or malfunctioning. I haven't tested it by taking it swimming or anything, but I don't see why it would break there if it can handle a shower. I am satisfied with my purchase!"

    "I've had a fitbit's since March 2016. I know there are many other fitness trackers out there and some may even be better than a Fitbit. However I Avail myself of the community and the challenges. I love having a Fitbit and disagree with people who say that you cannot be motivated by this if you are not already motivated. Most of the people I know who actually use one are the first to admit that when they are charging it they don't want to take any steps until they get it back so that they count. If that's not motivation to take steps I don't know what is. After having gotten this I now can wear my Fitbit no matter what I am doing with complete Security and no worries that water will damage it. I hated the idea of going swimming and exercising in the water but not having it count towards my challenges. My garden and use a hose often and did not want to be concerned that my Fitbit would get damaged. All in all I think that getting your Fitbit waterproof is worth the $99 additional cost. I just wish they could waterproof all of the different kinds so that all the members of my family could have one waterproof."
