The Fitbit Zip only tracks distance, steps, and calories burned. It's basically a pedometer with a smart tracking platform you can use for manually tracking the rest of your day. It can't tell you stairs climbed or heart rate, and there is no alarm, sleep tracking, or GPS. See More
The Fitbit Zip fitness tracker is very small, so you can easily wear it somewhere that it will be hidden (belt, pocket, bra strap, etc.). Unlike most trackers which have wrist bands, you don't have to worry about trying to make it blend in with what you're wearing. See More
The contacts in the device are very sensitive. If you don't place the battery in just right, it will only work for a short period of time before the battery needs to be readjusted or replaced. Even when following instructions provided by the company, some people report that still can't get it working properly. The battery may end up lasting days instead of the promised 4-6 months. You can see how to properly change the battery here. See More
The app doesn't only display the stats from your device, it also lets you track a variety of different health-related stats by entering them manually. You can log your food for the day, how you slept, activity, weight, and more. See More
The Withings Go fitness tracker uses an E ink screen, the same as what you would find on an e-reader. Rather than being lit like a usual digital screen, it is much more similar to ink on paper. This makes it very easy to read even in very bright conditions or when in the water. See More
The Withings Go is not a good option for someone wanting accurate data on their sleep habits. It often doesn't detect times you wake up at all, or sometimes registers them as "light sleep". Many users have reported the number of hours spent sleeping being consistently off by a couple hours or more. See More
