I don't have either, but I walk 4.8 miles 5 times a week. I could track that on my Nano Ipod, but I don't. Still, if I could, I'd use that Nano to get R4G points.



I suspect the reason AARP allows only one brand of fitness tracker to be used to earn points is that Fitbit pays them to be promoted via R4G.

Me, too. It was a gift.  I wasn't able to afford the more expensive one, and if AARP is all about saving money, then I would think they would include all fitness bits.  But, I suspect there may be advertising support going on for the one special brand.

Why only Fitbit

Message 4 of 4 (354 Views)

I have vivofit from Garmin. Why only fitbit. I really dont think it fair to only use on brand. I love my garmin. I walk 5 mile a day and I can't get points. This is **bleep**
