Are Fitness Trackers Accurate?

Apr 21, 2017

Author: Logan Strain
Once upon time, only athletes cared about their heart and metabolic rate during workouts. They had to go to scientists with a laboratory full of special equipment to see how well their body performed during strenuous exercise.But thanks to modern wearables like Fitbits, anyone can get the athlete treatment. Information like heart rate, calorie burn, steps taken, and hours slept per night can be collected through your device and displayed in a smartphone app.
That all sounds nice in theory. But can a device the size of a watch actually replace all the fancy medical equipment that athletes use? And if your fitness tracker isn’t perfectly accurate, how close does it get?

Well, a solution came up just to do that.

Following my recent uninspiring experience of Digoo BB-M2 and Veskys cameras, I had hopes that the new Wanscam HW0036 would be better, since it's part of the very good HW series.

The MI Square Smart IP Camera (aka XiaoFang) was announced in November 2016 and is now shipping. Now I can see for myself what it's really made of.

The Veskys "P2P WiFi IP Camera 1.0MP 720P" and Digoo BB-M2 are new PTZ IP cameras that recently appeared in the shops.
I decided to order both of them to see if they are really the same.
