Anyone use an activity tracker?

I have a fitbit charge 3, for 2 weeks now, and I like it. It is easy to use and helps me to make steps.

I already used the fitbit app on my phone, because it works well with 2 ohter apps I use,
-map my walk and
-map my ride.
So I use it for walking and riding my bike.

I am not to sporty, so the tracker pushes and reminds me to move!

Do you have favourite apps or trackers?
what do you use it for?

I have one for walking! It started when I was curious how much steps I made on a normal day! I said to my husband as a joke I bet it is over 10.000 steps just doing my household activities! And yes turned out that I was right it was very easy! On the days I go for a walk I can double it! And then I go to aqua power gym as well! That never is counted!

I got a FitBit Charge HR first about 4 years, maybe 5, ago. I needed something to help me monitor my heart rate due to medical issues. I am also not as active as I would like so it was helpful for me to track steps and activity. My Charge face plate was cracked in several places so I asked for an Inspire HR for Christmas. It is smaller than the Charge which is nice. I hope to be able to start walking again once I am out this walking boot for an ankle injury (one more week fingers crossed!)

I had a FitBit Charge until I went swimming in it :( I just use Runkeeper now and that tracks distance by GPS. I don't have a running count of steps unless I actually turn that on though.

I bought the Samsung Gear Fit Pro 2 because it was waterproof and also measured swimming laps and knew when I was cycling or walking.

so strange to let my tracker remind me to move, but it works for me!

anyone a member of a community?
or are those to fanatic?

It took me a long time to join the scrapbook forums, so not sure if it would be something for me.
