Any updates on this topic?  I really don’t want to buy a Fitbit just to get points when there are many other good fitness trackers out there

AARPTeri - Any update on when Garmin will be added to Rewards for Good?  Sounds like a lot of members (including me) that are serious activity trackers like Garmin.

I also have a Garmin. It is much better than a Fitbit I had previously. I would like to be a part of your fitness program. Please expand your program to include Garmin devices.

I have had a Fitbit for about 5 months now and just realized it is waterproof. all the employees where I work got one from the company to encourage a healthy life style.  I run a couch to 5K with my students so it helps me track our progress.

My granddaughter has a similar tracker, she paid the a lot less than mine and it does more than mine.  I think if it does what you need it to do, it does not matter what the brand name is.  I would have not bought a fitbit, but since it was given to me, I enjoy it.

@LexiandMaxMom et. al.

 

The mission of the program is to help enrich the lives of our members by awarding reward points for completing fitness milestones as well as participating in the quizzes and tools on the AARP.org website. At this time we are only able to track fitness milestones via our partnership with Fitbit. We are in the process of exploring program integration with some of the other popular fitness devices so that we can expand this point earning opportunity.

Agree with everyone here. I too have Garmin Vivofit and it's linked to 'myfitnesspal' which works well for me. I do 8-10,000+ steps every day--and I cannot log them here. Unfair.
