the gowearfit likely gives more precise info than the fitbit, but the fitbit gives me what I need, and I had a problem with the idea of a monthly subscription fee, to DH monthly fees drive him way crazier than just paying a bigger price and being done with it. I don't want it to tell me calories burned because I don't believe it or use that info in calculating what I eat. Steps and sleep is all I care about. I have no idea how the fitbit knows I am awake versus just turning over, but it does. I have had nights (unfortunately very rare) where I have slept through without a wake up, and I know that I changed positions during the night because I take off my headphones in my sleep and wake up facing DH instead of away from him.
gotta love a 3 day weekend!
