    Help Best fitness tracker ... must include GPS.

    Hi all,

    The missus has been making a concerted effort to lose weight, so far she's lost 2.5 stone through slimming world and also walk/run sessions in the local park. A big bit of this for her is setting PBs, targets and logging via gps so she can share it with others in her SW group.

    She picked up a microsoft band 2 a few months back and loved it but it broke down after about 2 months and we sent it back to MS and they duly replaced it.

    The second one has now gone the same way, only stays on if connected to the charger and she's a bit fed up of it as it's a big part of her daily routine, meeting and exceeding her targets.. She would like something more reliable but it must have the following features.

    Step tracking with a daily target
    GPS for an activity (and logging/upload)
    Preferably heart rate monitoring but she can do without this if needs be.
    Smart notifications from her iPhone.

    As I said she has been totally happy with the MS band functions EXCEPT the reliability is unacceptable,

    I'm a big Garmin man so I have tried pushing her towards one of those but they aren't really girly or stylish at all so she would like something else. If it isn't garmin I'm a bit lost to be honest !

    Can anyone recommend anything that might fulfil all her needs ?

    many thanks for any sugegstions,

    malty

    Fitbit surge does all that. My wife upgraded from Fitbit hr for the gps functionality.
    All round really good device - not had any issues with it.

    Thanks that was the one we were looking at mostly but I think she's finally seeing things my way and may well end up with a vivoactive. Will keep you posted
