    Heart rate monitor

    Do any of you wear fitbit or similar options to watch your heart rate? Looking at getting one again and was just curious what was a good choice. I don't need a smart watch style one. I just like to track heart rate and maybe sleep

    I use a fitbit. I like that it logs data all day and night and has about a 5-7 day battery life. I get heart rate but also info on how I'm sleeping, steps taken, calories burned.

    Which one do you use? Charge 4 maybe?

    Yes i use the most recent one. I think it's a charge 4. It gives you all sorts of useful data especially if you're trying to log calories. Quite accurate info about how many calories you've burned in a day allows you to adjust your diet to be in caloric surplus or deficit as you need. The data transfers fairly will into phone apps like "Lose it". There are others but that one takes the calorie data from fitbit and then you log your food intake and it tells you exactly how many calories came in and went out in the day. Very useful.

    I have a Garmin Vivosmart 4. I think it is adequate but some things are wonky, like syncing and not saving data if battery dies. So I religiously charge and sync every couple of days.
    I actually bought two but my wife got disgusted with the plastic band after a week. I destroyed mine by trying to clean it so now I wear hers.

    I use it mainly for O2 monitoring and sleep, both of which it does well enough.

    When I am on the Lifecycle my heart rate is different between the Garmin, my Bose earbuds (Sound Sport Pulse) and the bike. So who know how accurate any of these things are?
