I Have Now Had My Fitbit Ionic For 59-Days; Longer Than Either Of The Garmin Vivoactive 3s.

That I had it, and worn it, for 59-days does NOT mean that I like it or intend to keep it for much longer!

It’s ONLY redeeming feature has been that it has not died on me as did the Garmin Vivoactive 3s.

But, the Fitbit Ionic is not accurate. All the stats, especially heart rate, feels suspect. I think altitude/elevation is pure fabrication.

It is per the Lewis Carroll adage “that a watch that doesn’t work is better than one that is one-minute late, in that the one that is broken will tell the correct time twice a day” WORSE than one that is frozen.

I do NOT like the Fitbit Ionic. It has nothing going for it.

I am going to wear it till March 2, 2018 — just so that I can say I had it for 3-months. At that point I am getting another Garmin, now most likely a Garmin Forerunner 935. Why a Garmin. Because it gives me more data and does so on the watch. Plus, the FR 935 is rugged and proven.

Stay tuned. The sorry saga continues.
