Anyone got a really good one, not too bulky, shows steps and sleep on Apple health?

I have the Fitbit Charge and love it. Really motivates me to get off my ass and do my 10k steps.

Just don't wear it all the time. I got a slight rash and soreness after about 6 weeks, despite drying properly after showers and keeping the band clean. I don't wear it for bed anymore.

Or maybe swap wrists?

Love my garmin because it's waterproof and was on sale down to £45

I have a Jawbone UP. It's great. Lighter and cheaper than a Fitbit. I bought it to see how much use I would get out of a fitness tracker before spending a lot of money on one.

The answer is a lot! Am now hankering after an Apple Watch.

Look at the UP24 and read some reviews for it. I had a Fitbit flex and actually bought the UP24 instead as the Fitbit was constantly over-recording activity. It's much cheaper too which is always a bonus, and the app is much nicer to use too smile

If anyone is interested, I just bought the basic Jawbone Up Move for £12 on It doesn't do sleep tracking, but it's cheaper than a decent Omron pedometer, so I'm very pleased.

Dc2 and I both had an original Jawbone Up. They both stopped working after about three months.
I now have an Up2 (rope style) and so far, so good!

Can anyone recommend a fitness tracker for me, like Fitbit etc. I've heard good things about Jawbone UP2, but have very limited knowledge on these gadgets. Worth getting?

MapMyRun app for Android phone is easy to use,
but it drains your battery life a bit.

I have an up3 and it's very very good. Very accurate and the sleep tracker is amazing. Records deep, light and rem sleep. I cosleep and BF so was interesting to see how many times I wake up through the night to feed because by morning it's all blurred into one.

I have a Garmin vivosmart HR, which I really like. Not sure the heart rate thing is overly accurate though, so I only use that for interest not seriously.

As an aside, Pokemon Go has also upped my activity levels significantly blush
