Im currently wearing the new Fitbit flex 2 and the Apple Watch on separate arms. Does anyone else do a similar thing? The AW is great as a smart watch but Fitbit rules as a fitness device and the app is great.
Me. I am wearing an AW on my left wrist and FB Charge 2 on my left wrist. Same reason as you-- AW is a great smart watch, but FB rules for activity tracking (sleep tracking, HR analysis, and holistic activity view).
That looks better than mine. I got the Charge 2, because I wanted HR. That sucker is huge compared to the Flex 2. I am hoping that someone will come out with an HR tracker that is the size of the Flex 2 or Alta. Then, I will happily dump the C2.
Whenever I wore both a fitness tracker and my AW (used to wear different versions of the UP band and also tried the microsoft band before Apple Watch came out) I always wore them on opposite arms. Apple watch on my left and fitness on the right.
I have the Fitbit blaze and agree with you, their fitness tracking triumphs apple's. So much easier to use and family/friends mainly have fitbit. Since the Blaze can "pop out" of it's casing, I usually put it in my pocket while wearing the AW. Therefore I don't have to wear double and I barely notice it!
Partially: MobileTrack had quit working with iPhone 7 (just checked and it is back now)
Mostly: All the other stuff I was missing (24/7 HR tracking and analysis, sleep tracking, single portal view of all activity information)
