I received a LifeTrak Move C300 in order to test out the product and give my honest feedback on it’s use.
Since I’m working on being healthier and living a more active lifestyle I’m always getting questions about programs I’m on and also a lot of people asking if I use a calorie/activity tracker. I’ve used another brand in the past, but recently heard about the LifeTrak Move C300.
This wrist watch-based device tracks several aspects of your day. On it’s own it tracks your steps, and distance you walked/ran that day, it calculates your calories burned (using technology to count “true” steps and calories), and heart rate as well. With some user interaction it can also track your sleep, caffeine intake, caloric intake and more.
This health tracker device stands out, apart from others, for a few reasons:
It’s waterproof – fully submersible to 30 meters – great for swimming and you don’t have to remove it for a shower.
The device shows you some of your stats on the screen (some devices show nothing on their own screen) so you know your progress for the day without having to go to the app.
The device can show you 7 day and hourly activity so you can compare your progress and see how you are doing for the week.
You don’t have to charge the device, so no missed calories burned. Often times with other devices you have to plug into your USB or a AC outlet.
It has interchangeable bands with lots of colors. The devices I have come across usually only have one band, no choices.
It’s one of the lower priced activity trackers on the market.
One small reason I didn’t love this device was because I couldn’t hide it under my clothes. It is a little bulky for me since I’m not used to wearing even a regular watch, but overall I really did like the features and price point especially. In my opinion this is a great fit for people who are beginning or in their health journey wanting to keep track of goals and see their progress. For me seeing that progress and then watching it reflected on how I feel, the number on the scale, and how my clothes are fitting is awesome.
The Move C300 retails for $59.99 and you can get yours HERE.
