Bottom Line

Under Armour is taking a holistic approach to tracking, combining weight measurement, activity tracking and heart rate.  The addition of weight tracking gives a better overall assessment of an individuals progress.  The fact that everything is synced via Bluetooth almost eliminates the need for  manual recording, well unless you’re on vacation.  In our opinion the weight recording aspect makes the overall package very appealing.

One draw back to the UA Band is it requires the UA Heart Rate strap to record heart rate data.  Both Fitbit and Garmin have integrated bands that wrist HR monitors and don’t require the need of a HR strap.  Garmin also has a weight scale called the Garmin Index™ Smart Scale, which appears comparable to the UA Scale.
