Mio and Garmin activity trackers
By Rajinder B.
Fitbits are really good trackers, but from what I heard when its low to medium activity its precise, but when its medium to high activity it can be less precise.
I haven’t heard if anyone’s tried it but have a look at Pure Pulse Guidelines.
Fitbit suggets wearing it 2-3 fingers width from the wrist bone may help.
I was informed about the Mio brand of trackers, Mio’s website.
Their heart rate monitor is very accurate, they compare it to chest straps. The recent model is the Mio Slice. If someone is looking mainly for heart measurement this would be a recommended one to check out. Its water resistant to 30m, 3 ATM.
They rely more on the Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) score, as seen here. It looks like a very good activity tracker.
Garmin has activity trackers.
One of which is the Vivosmart 3, seen here, and it works with all three major devices iPhone®, Android™, and Windows®.
It uses similar technology like the Fitbit green LED’s to estimate heart rate. And the usual the tracker being worn off the wrist bone.
And a lot more specialized ones, if you’re into specific sports, like golfing, cycling, swimming and lots of other sports, seen here.
I heard good things about Garmin activity trackers.
