Hi Valerie! I have used multiple ones for different purposes. So I would recommend first deciding what is your priority metric you’d like to track. If it’s activity, I’d recommend an Apple Watch. If you’re comfortable sleeping with it you’ll also be able to download some very good sleep apps and track your sleep as well. If sleep is your main goal than Oura ring is a way to go! I have and use both ( don’t ask lol). I use Apple Watch for training and running and Oura ring for sleep and find them working well together to provide me with information I need. For activity you probably cannot go wrong with Fitbit or Garmin also. I hope this is helpful. But don’t overthink it. Xo- Daira
Hi Valerie! I use WHOOP. It’s a band you wear on your wrist 24/7 with a wireless, waterproof charger that slides on top so you never have to take it off.
-the most hi-tech technology I’ve seen on the market. There are no other devices that track what WHOOP tracks
-every piece is waterproof so you never take it off which makes for accurate 24/7, 365 tracking
-no face. Its not a watch and has no data on the face. Everything is done through the app
-the monthly fee is an expensive commitment. The data is incredible but may not be what you are looking for
I used a polar watch and HR strap religiously for years and WHOOP changed my life. Good luck on your search 🙂
I’ve been using Fitbit since 2017 or so, and I like it. It works well with iOS and Android. I’ve been using the charge3 for now and for me it’s more about tracking my activities for accountability and progress. It can also track your sleep and you can log your period. The newest ones have bunch of other functionalities like GPS and skin temperatures… anyway, it’s a good price and does the job. I guess folks who choose the Apple Watch is more because of the integration with iOS ecosystem. I heard great things about Whoop but I feel this one would be more for serious athletes or people looking into a data-driven approach to performance.
