You would have to sign in to your Garmin account when trying to connect to SP to determine which Garmin devices can be synced to SP.

I upgraded from the Charge to a fitbit Blaze and love it.

Maybe a Garmin Activity tracker, but what about a full on Garmin SmartWatch?

I have a replacement Fitbit Surge that they sent me when mine ceased holding a charge. No hassles, and I was just at the end of my warranty. When it breaks, I will be well out of warranty, and I'm thinking my next purchase will be a Garmin because I like how my triathlon Garmin watch performs, and especially with their battery life.

There are a LOT of models to choose from, with varying capabilities, but since I use my Surge as my regular watch... that's what I'd be looking for. It counts steps and has HR and GPS, but I don't use the GPS since if I'm out doing that sort of workout, I'm also wearing the Garmin and you only need ONE GPS running at a time!

I doubt it synchs to Spark, but to be honest, I'm not crazy about how fitbit syncs, so... it would be what it would be.

I would suggest Garmin.

buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/531
166


A couple cons:
1) food tracker sync is MyFitnessPal
2) you wouldn't be in the FB system (e.g. challenges)

I'm not sure if and what it syncs to Spark.

loved my one.. it held a charge without problems for a long time.

but if I was to change, if I post likely would, sounds bad I would purchase from a place like qvc or bed bath and beyond where I could try it out and then if a problem they would accept a return easiler from me

I have been looking at one I have seen advertised on facebook and amazon which also helps you monitor your breathing and stress levels

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

I have a Fitbit Charge HR and at first I loved it. I've had it for about a year. First the band broke. So I contacted customer support and they sent me a new one. Worked fine for a while. Now I'm noticing that for the past couple of days it hasn't held a charge. My husband wants me to move to another brand of tracker. I love my Fitbit. Any suggestions on something that will hold up to continuous use? Need suggestions.
