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.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
