comment
" ...  For the rest of the info you have to swipe through screens and like I said the font size is very small. ... In the Fitbit 3 they have 5 or 6 text lines on that little display screen and my 45 year old eyes can't make out 1 word.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Both the device and app have improved significantly and I enjoy both. ... As an Apple user for the past 10 years with no immediate plans to change the ecosystem (as I am sure many other Apple users are), this decision by Fitbit is incredibly damaging to itself. ... People won’t choose to change their expensive smartphone to Android or something else so that their health data would sync. ... People will choose instead to buy Apple Watch or Garmin or any other smart watch or fitness watch that syncs to their Health app.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Although the Apple Watch has a very good display and wide variety of apps, it is 3 times the price, doesn't have built in sleep tracking ( you have to download an app and then import that data to apple health app), larger size on your wrist (uncomfortable) and the abysmal battery life of <1 day and even less if you do gps tracking or battery intensive activities.  ...  "
