    " I workout 5x a week, try to eat as healthy as possible, attempt to get 6+ hours of sleep a night, and attempt to walk at least 10,000 steps a day. For me, having a fitness tracker is not only fun, it helps me to monitor exactly what habits I am maintaining on a daily basis. In all honesty, I have no real complaints with the Fitbit Charge HR and I still consider it an excellent fitness tracker. However, as an avid Android user (I use the Nexus 6P and stay up to date on all things Android related), I wanted to explore options that would sync with Google Fit and potentially have more room for tinkering. That's where the Mi Band 1s and now the Mi Band 2 enter the picture. I was able to purchase the Mi Band 2 through GeekBuying.com in late May (it was supposed to be a pre-order) and ended up receiving one week later in the first week of June. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. Be careful to ensure that you are purchasing an authentic Mi Band 2 (you can google fake vs authentic Mi Band to get a quick overview). **FIRST IMPRESSION: The packaging is simple and almost identical to the Mi Band 1s–just a simple natural colored cardboard box with the band, charger, and manual inside. The band is comfortable to wear, the silicone is soft and flexible, and the included charger is easy to use. After unboxing, I charged my Mi Band 2 for 2 hours and was ready to go. The initial setup slightly more of a pain than I anticipated. The OEM Mi Band software would not connect with my Mi Band. From some research, I was aware that this was a common issue with the Mi Band 1s and 2 because of the less-than-stellar OEM software. The fix? Download "Mi Band Tools" or "Mi Band Notify" from the Google Play store and either of those apps will connect with the Mi Band 2 instantly, thus allowing the OEM software to also detect and connect with the Mi Band 2.

    "The Samsung Gear Fit2 will track your heart rate as well as steps, calories, sleep, etc, and you can sync it with your phone. Unfortunately you can't sync it to your computer. There's no way to access your information through your desktop or laptop. You can only sync it to your phone. So I can't recommend this to anyone who is looking for a smart watch that you can sync to your computer. "

    "I wanted to monitor my heart rate using a traditional style watch. I like it that this watch does not have that squarish smartwatch look. I get an analog face with nice electronic features of a smartwatch. Nice combo of design and features."

    "This is a great smart watch for multitaskers. I telecommute and work out in the middle of the work day a lot, so the fact that I can sync this with my devices and even see when I get work emails is great. The look is a bit sporty, so I wouldn't really wear it to the office, but it works great for me."

    "This fitness watch comes from the trusted and popular Fitbit brand. In my experience, Fitbit devices have long lives and are quite durable. This features a pedometer, heart rate monitor, records your workout activity, and will map your run routes if your phone is on you. It even provides smartphone notifications and reminders. It features a 4.5 out of 5 stars review on Amazon out of almost 9,000 ratings. I would definitely recommend this product. "

    "The band basically never needs charging for a year at a time. The syncing works well. The sleep tracker is good. It assigns you a daily goal trying to get you more motivated, not just the same number over and over. "

    "The Samsung Gear Sport looks like a pretty nice smartwatch and I was eager to track my heart rate wirelessly, among other features, but I was not able to get it to connect with my phone. Having that kind of compatibility issue is a dealbreaker for me. I should have gone with an Apple watch since it would surely would have had better smartphone and computer syncs, but I got this one for a really nice price. I'll be more careful next time."
