But, it was going to be a challenge of sorts since she had told me repeatedly that she did NOT want one, would not wear one and that she hated having anything on her wrist! So, I didn’t want to get anything expensive if she was just going to discard it. Plus, given my far from ideal experience with my Fitbit Ionic, there was NO WAY I was going to get another Fitbit product — PLUS they are stupidly expensive.
So, I started doing a bit of research. I came across this iWOWNFit i6HRC, which was $35.99 at the time I placed the order (plus I had $4.99 in Amazon credits). It looked decent and interesting PLUS it came with a PURPLE BAND. Teischan likes purple and I was hoping that that would appeal to her.
Well, she has been wearing it — much more than I could have hoped for. She likes it!
It seems to work.
Very clever design. It is like a USB key. The USB plug to charge it is built in. NEATO. No need for cables. It is integrated.
The APP was easy enough to download and install on a 18-month old ASUS Android phone.
Synching has not been an issue.
I was so impressed I ordered ANOTHER. So, we have TWO (2). The second one is for Deanna who has misplaced her Fitbit Flex 2. The iWOWNFit i6HRC, at $20 less, does MUCH MORE. She got her’s yesterday.
I am NOT sure the numbers are accurate — as yet. Need to check that. Still early days.
Sleep tracking works. That is good.
So, we are cautiously optimistic.

After the trouble I have had with my Garmin Vivoactive 3, I did not want to again be without an Activity Tracker on my wrist. Plus, the Samsung S3 Frontier really does double-up as a pretty decent dress watch. And that was how I used to it … when we went to Concord, NH, among other things to see the movie “The Greatest Showman“.
The Samsung S3 Frontier looks good. Wasn’t that heavy. I love the display. Great in a theater. Easy to read in the dark. I loved it.
It is not as comprehensive on the activity/fitness features as is my Vivoactive 3 — and it is NOT meant to be. Heart Rate monitoring is not constant — but more on demand. But, when I go out I would rather the have the S3 Frontier on my wrist than the Garmin.
I have found an APP that will let me combine the daily data from both. I have yet to try it.
I will keep you posted.
