Fitness trackers vs Google Pixel 2/3



Recommended Posts

I intend to buy a Pixel 3/3XL this year. Can the Pixel do it's own fitness tracking, or is a separate fitness tracker better (if so, I'd get the Garmin Vivosport). I know earlier Apple phones had fitness tracking, but I don't know how well they worked. Online, it seems most people are looking for devices to connect to their Pixels, so perhaps the Pixels are missing some sensors like a pedometer? I am not looking so much for step counting, but a GPS and pace tracking.

Looks like the Pixel has had the ability to do this for a while.

Hi Matt I have a pixel and it tracks well if you have it on you! I also have a fossil watch and a ticwatch s and they work like a charm! I am a huge Google Dan and they can do a lot with lots of other apps to connect data! Garmin is good but a Water proof one is best!

My son just bought me a garmin fitrunner 35 for my 50th b day. Still figuring all the functions out. So far it's been helpful. Connects with other apps. Including myfitness pal.
