Tracking my mobile life with Vivosmart



My life is mobile…and I want to know just how mobile it is.

I had been thinking about getting a sport band to help motivate me. When nnik did his post entitled Fitbit or Vivosmart earlier this month, that got me off my duff. Now that I have used the Vivosmart for a while, I felt the need to do a video on how to use it with a BlackBerry phone. Enjoy…



jrohland has never been able to figure out how to use Capital letters in his name. He can't write like e.e. cummings but he word rhymes sometimes.

    Wow! That looks great! I wish it had an integrated heart monitor like my Fitbit HR. As far as looks go, this Garmin looks so much more modern. But I want that all day heart rate tracking. Wow. Great video JR. Now you have me wanting a new gadget. :(

    Brad, how long does the battery last on the Fitbit? The Garmin is rated for up to 7 days. I would like to have an imbedded heart monitor but the good ones use light sensors. Which means they use a lot of battery. Which means if Garmin puts a light sensor heart rate monitor in, the battery will not last nearly as long. Not sure I would want to give up the long battery life.

      I just got a fitbit – so far so good on battery – charged it once, not even to the top, and been going a few days.
