Re: Real stats
I prefer not to have my fitness tracked. I work out as a mere, casual pastime.

Re: Real stats

@Angelfuego I believe that these apps are coming out in bulks but thet are actually not making people approved of these things as all of them, with a little bit of variation, giving same services or functions. I believe if companys can come up with something more closer to customer requirement only then it can work. I also believe that companys need to invest heavily in R&D for more ROI.

Re: Real stats
For some reason, I am still not enticed to purchase the Sony Smartband 2, nor any other fitness tracker.

As much as heart rate trackers and similar are useful, the big one I think will be glucose monitoring. If someone can manage to get that into a wrist band without breaking the skin, it would have a huge audience with many applications felt in medicine and fitness.
