Truth be told, absolutely nothing in these articles surprise me, not even the rankings. However, it does feel good to have an independent 3rd party scientifically reaffirm my prior belief that my FBO had about a 10-15% margin of error. I do wish that they had also tested the Flex/Force.


The rankings by error rating:
• BodyMedia FIT: 9.3 percent
• Fitbit Zip: 10.1 percent
• Fitbit One: 10.4 percent
• Jawbone Up: 12.2 percent
• ActiGraph: 12.6 percent
• Directlife: 12.8 percent
• Nike FuelBand: 13 percent
• Basis Band: 23.5 percent
