    Your phone can't measure your heart rate so can't get an accurate reading on calories burned. Which is canny important if you're looking for weight loss.

    Calories out vs calories in

    Lasses, midweek pub crawl or transportation of illegal firearms?

    I'd change it to the Charge HR mate. For the reasons above
  4. Definitely the latter.

    Our lass has just got an apple watch. She is over the moon with it. Hasn't lost any weight yet like.

    Are you some kind of dog nonce?

    True, but those HR based calorie calculations are a load of shit, you realise? The are only approximations.

    I've got a Charge HR & I'm not thinking it's spot on, but what it does do is make you very aware of your activity & how simple things like walking instead of driving makes a big difference. Stuff like a walk from the Grange to the SoL & back for me is about 400 calories. I need to burn off 500 more than I eat per day to lose a pound of fat a week. The measurements might not be spot on, but they don't half motivate you to change your lifestyle & give you goals.

    I’m thinking of getting a charge 2 through work - £8 pm for 12 months. Seems a good deal.

    I've got the new Ionic like and it's belter. Love the sleep tracker. Very eye opening (no pun intended ;))
  18. I've moved away from the surge as the strap was shite and kept peeling away. Got a Samsung s3 frontier now and its a great piece of kit

    Nice watch the Ionic. Came close to buying one to replace my Fitbit Blaze, but ended up getting a cracking deal on a Samsung Gear S3.

    It’s more to get fit - had a bit of a health drama over Xmas and been off work since but I’m on the mend now.
