I've got a misfit and been very happy with it. The main reason I got it over the others was the ability to wear it in places other than my wrist as 99% of the time I'm pushing a pushchair and was concerned that they wouldn't be as accurate if I arms were not moving normally. I usually wear the misfit in a necklace and the odd time I've worn it on my wrist it definitely was less accurate not recording the distance as well. From what I read at the time the others claim it shouldn't make a huge difference though. The misfit measures distance and sleep.

DH got himself a fitbit with the heart rate monitor for Christmas. He had no end of trouble trying to sync it and actually get his data to track. After doing some sprints training and his HR not going over 120 and driving on a hilly road with bumps and being told he was jogging up stairs he started to get fed up. I got him to wear my Polar HRM with chest strap at the same time and it was registering his HR much higher and reflecting how much effort he felt like he was putting in. He returned it after 3 weeks and got a full refund as it clearly does not do what it claims to do.

Bumping this so I don't have to start a new one.
Most of my exercise is pushing a pram. So do the wrist ones capture steps correctly?
If not, what are my other options?
I pretty much need sleep tracking and activity tracking.
Also, where did you purchase them from?

I just stick it on my shoe when going for walks with the pram. I've watched it count the steps while on my shoe and it's accurate that way.

I have a Garmin vivofit2 and don't seem to have many issues with it. It does miss steps whilst pushing a shopping trolley or the pram but as others have said, they need movement to register
It has an app which seems straight forward enough. I love that its waterproof (no taking it off for the dishes, kids baths or shower!) and it doesn't need recharging. Simple enough for me😊

I ended up getting the Jawbone Up3 and haven't had any issues with it. Found it pretty accurate for my steps and picking up when I am doing active exercise and my sleep. In fact my Mum even got one after me and she loves hers as well!

I also adjusted the stride length. .as I'm super short.
I got mine from target. I'm loving it. I only wanted it for sleep and walks too to track my exercise and help get me motivated.
