  • Motivation?

    I workout regularly 5-6 times per week and while I wear a Fuel band, i can honestly say it does not motivate me to workout more. It does help me to see how effective (relatively) my works out are, but I was working out long before I cell phones were common. Are you suggesting some folks only work out because they can track their effort?

    • No, I meant that these devices can help you improve performance

      I've been playing sports and working out since I was a kid too, but with these devices helping give me live feedback on my performance they honestly do help me to run and ride faster. A device like a Fuelband or Fitbit is fine for tracking, but I am referring to high end devices like the TomTom, Garmin, and Suunto watches that give you specific feedback and coaching as you workout.

      • Now i understand

        I'm not a runner ( I do run on occasion) I prefer cross fit and boot camp style workouts. I do hike and wouldn't mind a device that could give me real time feedback, but I'm a cheapskate, and these devices are pricey! perhaps I'll check out the Tom-Tom in about 6 months on craig's list or ebay.

  • smartphone w/bluetooth

    If you have a smartphone with bluetooth, you've already bought all the expensive parts; get a BT HR monitor that is compatible. The only thing lacking is cadence for biking, which is marginally useful once you've established a feel for a steady road cadence. If they wanted to do something USEFUL for biking at least, they'd work in a power meter.

    I have an Edge 500 too, so its not like I'm unfamiliar with these... it sits on my desk while the droid rides on my handlebars.
