    "Ok, our personal coaches are finding novel ways to hang around constantly and nag us into more activity. The Ballabeat Leaf Urban does a nice job of this though, and I recommend evaluating this device if you are in the market for a personal fitness tracker. This unit monitors activity, sleep, stress and probably your social life as well but does so in an unobtrusive and cool way. These devices aren't cheap, but worth it if you are into tracking your fitness and all around healthy habits."

    "There are better devices for tracking you're running progress. I had one of these and it got destroyed in a heavy downfall when I was out running. "

    "Oh wow, what a piece of garbage. If it was an app I'd delete it. In fact, I did delete the MOOV app, but I have to wait for the return to go through to get my money back on the device. It's flimsy, and simply sweating caused it to start acting weird. It's a fitness wearable; how can sweat mess it up? Well, it did. The suggestions it gives are not personalized, they're just standard generic exercise advice parceled out in chunks. If you walk, it says pick up your knees for a better workout. If you run, it says keep your back straight. What a waste."

    "I'm a marathon runner so I'm always looking for the newest gadgets to help me in my running. I needed a new smartwatch to track my mileage and I came across the Fitbit Versa. I ordered it because the price was right and I fell in love with it. Not only can does it track my mileage, it also holds all my music and tracks my sleep schedule. Highly recommend! "

    "I just started running about 2 months ago. As my healthy habit turned more into a daily routine, I decided it was time to start tracking my runs. I got this device to do just that, and it has been uber helpful! All I need to focus on is tying my running shoe laces and staying hydrated, it does the rest."

    "It does a lot, to be sure, but I don't quite feel like I'm getting my money's worth here. My kid had a much plainer smart device/tracker, and it was way easier to use than this, and didn't need my phone on me the entire time. It would be far more worth it if the device could be un-tethered."

    "Garmin Forerunner 920XT is not the prettiest looking watch but it is loaded with features and is very durable. I have to say they could have done a much better job with the watch face and the overall shape of the watch though, I was really not impressed once I wore it for a few days."
