Tracking your “moovments”

So you might have noticed if you’ve seen me in any of our Soylent videos, that I’ve got some sort of gizmo on my wrist. Well that’s an activity tracker. There are quite a few of them on the market now, the one we wear happens to be the Jawbone Up. We’ve had them for over a year and like them very much, but… they suffer from either terrible quality control, some fatal design flaws, or perhaps both.  We’ve been through no less than a dozen of them between us in the time we’ve been customers (they keep replacing them under warranty, thankfully).

But I do kinda dig on having data about my activity levels, so I’ve been on the lookout for an alternative.  I wasn’t all that impressed with the Fitbit.  The fact that it wasn’t meant to wear 24/7 and can be removed from its bracelet bothered me.  But then a few months ago I found out about the Moov viagra alternative.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Moov is another of these crowd-funded campaigns which means you typically get your product a very long time after you order it.  Based on an email I got this morning however, it looks like it should be shipping in another month or two.  We shall see!  But it looks like it may not suffer from the physical design issues with the Up, and it has some interesting advantages of its own.  Yeah it was a splurge for sure… right up there with our Vessyl smart cups (that we won’t see until next year at the earliest… sigh).  But I’m really getting into this “body quantification” thing, so I couldn’t resist.

What about you?  Do you use any sort of activity tracker or do anything else to try to quantify your biology in any way?
