Excluding combing through yard sales/eBay…more time efficient and with a warranty (plus) are the new product offerings by the appropriately named, iFIT…including their ACTIVE Fitness Tracker that does what pricier versions do but sells for $79.99 -pairs wirelessly-to sync with the iFIT platform app (iOS/Android) to track activity (steps), calories, and sleep- around the clock-while also displaying real time (!) ---
Just in time for holiday calorie counting -log in your food intake for that stat too, plus access iFit's library of food/recipes for (theoretically) healthier eating---and there's even a barcode scanner that helps in doing that.
Plus there is the capability to send/receive messages with those who also have who are iFIT app enabled-show up on the tracker. TMI?
Maybe but we thought the functionality/price ratio exceptional -available in-store/online WALMART
