Date:8/18/2014

VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, in the news there has been much discussion on whether activity trackers are to be blamed for people's weight gain. Some who own these bands, say they start using the tracker, and, remarkably, the scale starts moving up instead of down.

  • Accuracy of activity trackers' daily calorie intake recommendations
  • Activity trackers' inability to take into account individuals' metabolic rate
  • The bands' incapacity to measure people's overall well-being and stress levels
