Ask Engadget: best fitness accessory?


We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Michelle, who's worried about the lumber she's carrying and if she can be doing more to exercise. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm worried that I don't get enough exercise, or even walk around enough during the working week. I'd love to be able to measure my activity and know when I've had a really slovenly day. Keep up the great work!"

Firstly, we'd say that there's no one device that's perfect for everyone. If you want motivation, then Strivv's option of donating cash to charity the more activity you make is a great option. If you want pure data collection, then the Withings Pulse and Fitbit One are more likely to suit your tastes. Then you've got Jawbone's Up and Nike's Fuelband, which offer lifestyle features and stylish hardware to the mix. Of course, that's just our brief summation, now let's turn this over to the commenters and see what they say, eh?
