Bargain Alert: Dick Smith Flogging Fitness Trackers For Cheap

Briefly: Is your wrist looking a little bare? Fancy a fitness tracker and looking to save some bucks? Dick Smith is having a one-day sale on its fitness trackers from Fitbit, Misfit, Garmin and more.


Why Aren't Fitness Trackers Actually Accurate?

There are dozens of different fitness trackers on electronics store shelves these days, and they all measure movement and energy expenditure and fitness in wildly different ways. But it turns out that no one tracker is more competent than another in actually accurately tracking your steps, even though the aggregate day-to-day data is what matters.

A hike deep into the woods or unexplored territory is only fun if you know you can find your way back out.

Garmin's Fēnix 3 Multisport GPS Watch Keeps Its Active Side Secret

It was the use of a thin red bar on the display that grew longer and longer while you were inactive. And Garmin’s new vívofit 2 improves on that guilt-inducing reminder with audible alarms that will eventually shame you into getting up and getting active.


Garmin's Slim Vívoactive Bridges Smartwatches And Fitness Trackers

At one time, we all carried separate mobile phones and MP3 players because there just wasn’t a single device that did both well — and then the iPhone arrived. The same problem exists between fitness trackers and smartwatches. Neither does the other one’s job particularly well, but it doesn’t have to be that way. At least according to Garmin, who’s crammed both a smartwatch and a fitness tracker into its slim new vívoactive.

Why People Keep Trying To Erase The Hollywood Sign From Google Maps
