These are my friends at HRM USA — the place at which I have been buying ALL my many activity trackers for the last year. Given that they discovered that I blog they had asked whether I would do some reviews for them. I was glad to oblige. So, here is one. I have done more.
A review I wrote for ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA’ (HRM USA) about the OOFOS OOcloog Clogs I got from them.
I am usually pretty prosaic and unfussy about footwear, BUT these incredibly squishy and insanely comfortable clogs were something else.
It really did remind me of this song. Do YOU remember it? If you know it, then that is ALL I have to tell you. Walking around in these clogs is like it says in the song.
Read the review, if you need more convincing.
It feels SO NATURAL on my wrist. I am totally at ease with it. Huge difference to the 90-days I forced myself to wear the dread Fitbit Ionic — as penance for the stupidity of buying it.
I was aware of the Fitbit Ionic each and every day I had it on. Though I use my Fenix 5, every day, it never feels like an imposition.
It hasn’t given me any grief per se.
Two things that I am crushingly disappointed about:
- How it measures STEPS while you are on a bumpy vehicle,
- How its open-water swimming measurements are utter garbage.
Both of them should, and could, be fixed. We must have a ‘widget’/function that lets us TURN-OFF step counting. That will stop it recording bogus steps.
It has to improve its open-water swimming mechanism.
Other than that, I am happy with it.
I discovered, exceedingly serendipitously, “Heart Rate Monitors USA“, last November, through Amazon, when I was in a desperate hurry to get my hands on a Vivoactive 3 in Slate. They had a few units in Slate and Amazon didn’t and was claiming that would not for a few weeks. I called them up and spoke to them. They impressed me. So, I placed an order via Amazon.
I am so glad I bought that Vivoactive 3 from them rather than Amazon because I had two (yes, ‘2’) die on me within 66-days. That is when they really, really impressed me. They replaced both without a murmur. Their customer service has been AMAZING.
Check them out. They invariably have discounts, offers and clearance.

They are FREE, one per customer, but you have to pay $3.99 shipping — from “Heart Rate Monitors USA“.
But they sent me one FREE-FREE when I order my Garmin Fenix 5 from them. We have had a lot of dealings since November so they know me well.
The T-shirt came today, USPS, whereas the Fenix 5 was delivered by UPS on Friday.
Nice quality T-shirt.
You should get one even if you have to pay the $3.99 shipping.
