I haven't bought one only because I don't have a smart phone and have no idea how to manage the more technical side of things. (only have a PC)
I bought a Polar A370 watch because I do not have a smartphone. They have a website called polarflow where you can upload your stats.

I just bought a cheap fitness tracker watch from Amazon last week - because I wanted a watch that fit my large wrists (women's watches do not) and to use as a pedometer. I got a Yamay for $20 and it is awesome - two people at work have since bought them too. I have no idea how accurate the pedometer is (or the sleep tracking/heart rate), but if you are just use it as a guideline, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Just a warning: I have owned 3 of these Polar watches and they last exactly one year. The usb port breaks after a year and you can no longer charge it. I have attempted to contact the company about this and they just ignore me. Besides that, it's a great watch with great features. I wouldn't have owned 3 of them if that weren't the case!
I now have a fitbit versa...I love it! It costs less but it's way better quality

I am very sorry to hear that! I love mine. I hardly spent anything on it. I had a $100 Amazon gift card from my contact lens rebate and $25.00 Amazon Visa reward points.

I do not have a smartphone and it seems like every other tracker requires one.
