Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I will update this review when I've had my Vivofit monitor for longer, but wanted to post now as it's recently become available in the UK and many will be wondering how it compares with other fitness monitors and I'm able to compare it with the fitbit flex.. My left wrist is currently sporting both my Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Tracker & Sleep Wristband and my Garmin Vivofit so that I can do a direct comparison. I have also owned previous incarnations of the fitbit - the ultra and the one, and was awaiting the (now withdrawn) fitbit force with much anticipation.

I was attracted to this by a number of five star reviews. It's not a five star book and I would be unhappy if I'd paid the print list price for it.

It's brief, and there's not much content, and there probably isn't anything there that you haven't seen already or don't already know. Why get it at all then? Because we need some reminding of the most common sense stuff and it may prompt you to some self change....but reading this is not going to change your life.
