These are hard times we're living, and since I've been using Spire I've been feeling better, more centered.,.. Couldn't recommend it enough!!!"

I have been using this for swimming and it has had great performance. The only issue I have is that it does not track heart rate, but hopefully in the future they will update this."

I purchased the apple watch and i hated it because it didn't have the fitbit data and tracking. Although this device doesn't have a microphone or speaker the buzzing notifications for texts and called posed no issues. I'm happy with the fitbit Ionic and don't regret ditching apple for this."

      "I've had a fitbit's since March 2016. I know there are many other fitness trackers out there and some may even be better than a Fitbit. However I Avail myself of the community and the challenges. I love having a Fitbit and disagree with people who say that you cannot be motivated by this if you are not already motivated. Most of the people I know who actually use one are the first to admit that when they are charging it they don't want to take any steps until they get it back so that they count. If that's not motivation to take steps I don't know what is. After having gotten this I now can wear my Fitbit no matter what I am doing with complete Security and no worries that water will damage it. I hated the idea of going swimming and exercising in the water but not having it count towards my challenges. My garden and use a hose often and did not want to be concerned that my Fitbit would get damaged. All in all I think that getting your Fitbit waterproof is worth the $99 additional cost. I just wish they could waterproof all of the different kinds so that all the members of my family could have one waterproof."
