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.
