A year ago this past May I purchased a Fitbit One and the device is still going strong without any problems to date.
There are numerous brands and models one can choose from; companies like, Fitbit, Apple, Microsoft, Jawbone, Misfit and others.
If you are in the market to purchase one, keep in mind that the average user only stays with any type of program including wearing or carrying a health related device for six months and then loses interest.
Just read a few months ago that the devices with “bands or straps” tend to wear out within a short period of time, some even report that their bands wore out in three to six months.
Personally my Fitbit One is attach to my belt or carried in my pocket. I realized that since I wear a watch carrying an additional device with band would not work for me.
You can find online numerous reviews from individuals concerning fitness trackers and along with dozens of complaints concerning discoloring, splitting and disintegrating in less than six months.
Bands and Straps are exposed to oils, skin-care products and cleaning agents. It is recommended that you avoid excessive stretching and twisting; clean the band with water and rubbing alcohol after a heavy sweat.
