I have a Samsung 8 phone and am using the Fitbit Versa smart watch. It also worked with the Fitbit Inspire HR.

Samsung makes good smart watches. Just make sure you wanna stay with Android. I bought a motorola smart watch and got an iPhone at work so I had to buy an apple watch but I love it.

Personally I would get whatever watch corresponds with your phone. I've thrown so much money at Fitbit and after my 6th one in 3 years died I said NO MORE!! I got the apple watch and haven't looked back! Even though I really loved my Fitbit products, they are NOT worth what you pay for them so you might as well spend a little extra and get something that's going to last.

All wrist worn fitness trackers are crap. I guess people love them because it says they did way more exercise than they actually did.

I did 3 loads of laundry and folded and Samsung watch said I took 10k steps. Truck drivers report 25k steps just steering and shifting with Fitbit.

If you just track time with elevated heartbeat (cardio), you get a better estimate.

Yes, and no. It is true that most (especially cheaper trackers) will record arm activity as if you are walking. But a good/high quality fitness tracker does less so AND also records mileage as well as "steps". I find that these activity trackers are much more accurate. Mine doesn't record so much arm activity while othwrwise stationary.... and I find that the mileage tracking is spot on. I know this because many times I walk long distances and have my husband pick me up to drive me home. We take the same route back and reset his trip odometer. It has been the same mileage for his car and my tracker each time.

Also worth noting... that arm activity IS activity... for many morbidly obese people, any and all activity helps. Even if you start with folding laundry and cleaning the house more often.

I have had a Samsung Gearfit 2 for over 3 years.. I have not had any problems with it. I'm considering the Samsung Active2 now.

I've had one version or another of the Apple Watch for the past 3 years. Love it and would recommend it to anyone who is already in the Apple eco-system. Could still be good with Android users, but you wouldn't get the most out of it, so like the other poster said above, get one that works best with whatever OS you are currently operating in.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
