Had a reasonably major spinal op just under a week ago and I'm planning a lot of walking as part of my rehab. I'd like to be able to count steps and measure distance reasonably accurately and ideally also record where I've been.
A quick Google suggested that for my c. £100 ideally budget the Fitbit Charge 4 would be a good option but further googling suggests I shouldn't buy a Fitbit because they're shit.
Garmins seem to be better options - I've been looking at the Garmin Vivoactive 3 which is about the top of what I'd want to spend (£140). Really want:
Ideally would also have pay, notifications, connect to phone reliably blah blah blah. Basically on paper the Charge 4 would be ideal but user reviews suggest they're rubbish.
Confused by all the options and don't really have the energy at the moment to research for hours either - halp?
I had a £100+ Vivo thingie and it died after 6 months. I started using MiBand at around £25.
Bear in mind I only use them to get me to get up and move around so I don't die from a blood clot rather than giving any shits about step counting.
