About eighteen months ago I wrote about my life with a cheap fitness tracker.
Recently I acquired an Inspire HR, one of the fitbit range of fitness trackers, which gave me a chance to compare a no name device with a brandname device.
The Inspire HR actually does less than the no name device, but it records distance walked, heart rate, and exercise sessions, such as bike rides, which is what I was particularly interested in.
Like the no name device it will also show notifications.
So, on paper, you'd say I was right, the no name device, at less than half the price, was just as capable, if not more so.
The real difference is the fitbit environment - the fitbit dashboard which lets you look at your walks and your bike rides, making it easy to track how you are doing - for example you get a nice route map
