Fitness Tracker / Heart RateMonitor Comparison

Maybe you’ve been through the whole site at this point, and you need it all in one view so you can make the best decision. Or maybe you skipped the rest just because you know how they work, but you just want comparative information on what they do. Regardless, all of the details that you need are happily listed below. Just looking at it has made this whole thing way more understandable for me.

Remember that everyone has a different opinion on these, so you have to make the decision for the one you want. I know the ones that I like would irritate my husband to no end. Go with your instinct for what you would use and then go from there.
