Some Fitness Trackers More Accurate Than Others

Posted: Updated:

Turns out your fitness tracker may not be as accurate as you think.

Researchers found most trackers were reasonably accurate when it came to calorie-burn estimates, but some more than others.

The most accurate devices of the eight tested were the Body-Media Fit, followed by the FitBit Zip and FitBit One.
