Fitness tracker idea?

Jan 07, 2024,22:42 PM

Hi folks. I’m at the age (actually, well past the age) when I need to focus more on my health. And my doctor suggested that I wear a fitness tracker—like an Apple Watch—that will track steps, heart rate, etc. But here is the dilemma: I have no intention of giving up my mechanical watches (or of not wearing them), and I don’t want to wear two watches. Can anyone recommend a good fitness tracker I can wear on my right wrist that would be more like a thin, unobtrusive bracelet? Many thanks in advance!

One of the smaller/narrow FitBit trackers....

I was also looking for a fitness tracker not for any health reasons…

But more to manage daily calories and track steps. I wanted to avoid double wristing so Apple watch was not in my consideration. I had a look at Polar, Fitbit, Jawbone, and Withings. I picked Fitbit in the end but my experience with Fitbit was pretty disa... 

I’ve been double-wristing over 5-6 months now…

Apple remains the best generic health tracker - the best I’ve found after testing several and wasting a bit of $. I’ve put on mute all functions except health tracking to keep it quiet all day long 😜

Thanks everyone!

Very helpful ideas. I hadn’t given serious thought to one of the rings before, but that might be the perfect route here. Bob
