Wondering how many of you guys are using body/health monitoring devices like fitbit,jawbone and such.

Did it help you with your goal?

Did you stick to the device say after 2-3 months?

People tend to buy them as shiny new toys and leave when the initial shine rubs off.

I got a Polar F7 and love it! I just wanted something to push me harder during my woekouts and it does just that.

Never heard of polar but good to know people actually get some good out of these devices.

I'm about to buy the Polar Loop, anyone have experience with that one?
I'm really curious and I can't wait to see my stats per month etc. :)

Never heard of polar loop but I heard that Basis B1 is the most piece of technology out there. It sets actual realistic progressive goals for its user. Check it too before finalizing.

They're similar but Polar is available in my country and cheaper and I think it looks better haha. Thank you though I had never heard of that one :)

I have the fitbit flex and love it have had it since March and it has helped me so much to keep up with my goals and help me meet them.  The only thing that I have noticed that I dislike a little is the band's wear out kind of quick but the replacement ones are not bad 25.00 for 3 off Amazon. If you have questions let me know.

Good to know and keep up the good work! Actually these devices are not officially available in India yet maybe apart from fitbit(and it's 200$ here). I'm scared that I would stop using it after three months or so. That's why wasn't too know the general trend.
