Is anyone using wearable technology for step counters?

Does wearing these watches help motivate you?

I use the misfit shine. I have had mine for 3.5 years and love it.

I just bought an inexpensive one, Jawbone Up Move and am very happy with it and yes they are a great motivator.

Just to add my husband has just had a kidney transplant and a birthday so I've bought him the newer version of mine which is a misfit ray to help him slowly build up his steps as he works at getting active again. He likes seeing the sleep side of it as well, I can already see that he is checking his stats to see how he is doing. So for some it is a great motivator.

Flossie i have a fitbit bought it out of avon i think it was 40 euros it counts calories burnt distance kms how many steps and how much sleep i aim for 10000 steps or more i use it every day to keep me motivated i have got into the habit i want to know what i have achieved throughout the day. Iam not very good with gadgets but this is very simple to use when apps are mentioned i have not a clue. Good luck they are well worth it.
