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
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
While it varies somewhat, many people have been reporting that the fitness tracker usually lasts 5 full days on a single charge. In general, the more features a tracker has, the faster it will drain the battery. 4 or 5 days is an impressive charge compared to other trackers with similar features (continuous heart rate tracking for example).

If you don't like the basic rubber wrist strap the comes with the tracker, you can change out the strap for more premium options. There are many different styles available including leather, silicone, or stainless steel in a variety of colors. See More
It gives you a lot of stats on your activities thanks to the GPS, altimeter, and heart rate monitor. It can track your sleep, show you alerts directly on the display, and offers a variety of helpful features such as reminders to move and a breathing function that helps you relax. See More
The Fitbit Surge fitness tracker has automatic, continuous, wrist based heart rate tracking. Heart rate data is stored at one second intervals during exercise, and at five second intervals during non-exercise activities. See More
As long as you have your phone with you, the fitness tracker will provide real-time feedback based on the workout you selected (walking/running, cycling, swimming, home workouts). Such feedback includes pace tracking (if you are above/below pace it will tell you how far off you are), as well as workout-specific feedback (for example, while cycling it can suggest when you should switch gears).

While watching the screen on your phone, Moov Now fitness tracker can take you through workouts at home. Such workouts are push-ups, sit-ups, and cardio boxing. Cardio boxing requires 2 trackers (one for each wrist), but works similar to guitar hero where you swing as the icons move towards you. See More
The Alta is available in three different sizes (small, large, and extra large). Each size can be adjusted by a minimum of 1 inch. This is a great tracker for people with wrists below or above average size who may have trouble finding a comfortable fit with other trackers. See More
The Alta fitness tracker is designed to be more of a passive tracker for the Average Joe as opposed to a complete activity tracker for enthusiasts. There is no GPS or heart rate monitor, so the stats you get are limited to steps, rough distance traveled, estimated calories burned, active minutes, and sleep tracking. See More
For its size, the Alta fitness tracker has a large display. The display will show steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes, and sleep time. You can switch between these by tapping the side of the display (there is no button). The screen is easy to read at a glance while on the move except in bright settings. See More
To manually turn on the display you must double tap the side of the tracker which can be difficult to do properly. It can also turned on automatically by the appropriate wrist/arm movement for checking the time. There is no way to keep the display on so it may take some fumbling every time you want to look at the display. See More
