    "This thing cost freaking $450!!! At this price I can buy Apple's smartwatch. All this device does is track my physical activities and nothing else. If you are thinking of buying this, I suggest, you should buy cheaper ones with all the features available and if you are hell bend on shelling out $450 from your pocket, you join a premium gym with personal trainers and spa."

    "The Polar M600 is pretty much all I need in a tracking device. It monitors my heartrate, pace and shows me the time. Really don't need anything else when I'm on a run."

    "This is an interesting alternative to the Fitbit products, which are arguably the big dogs in fitness wear. The screen on this is large and gorgeous and it tracks other activities besides walking - such as running, biking, golfing, and swimming. Yes, you can swim with it. It even has an app ecosystem and is customizable. Overall, a very strong contender in this crowded market."

    "Get out there and start training for that marathon you always said you would do! This watch is perfect to track your runs in many ways. It is easy to read and use, and other people can track your progress as well! Don't worry about missing those important texts, calls or emails either! You will get alerts immediately as you work your butts off!"

    "Ah Fitbit, how I love you. You turned me from a couch potato into a walking warrior. You reward me when I reach my goals, and gently nudge me when I need to get on it. I had an Alta for years, and only upgraded because I wanted some of the more advanced functionality (heart rate, stairs, etc.). If you're looking for an all around great Fitbit at a comfortable price point, the Alta is for you. "

    "The Flex is super lightweight compared to other fitness trackers, although that may be to its detriment because it's lightweight both in terms of physical attributes and features. I'd rather use a full-featured tracker."

    "Does the basic stuff nicely. And the battery life is amazing. Wouldn't want another device that needs to be charged every day. With the previous software versions sometimes it didn't properly track the pulse, especially when sweaty. But the new updates have solved it! The thing that would make it super awesome is waterproofness + swimming lap tracking."
