Who has what and how often do you use them? Anything gadgety, including fitbit scales and fitness equipment...

Does anyone use their iPhone, Xbox / Wii to track exercise?

I have a jawbone UP and Wobbles has a Fibit Surge + we both use the Fitbit Scales.

On my Facebook I see lots of posts from friends that update their progress, maps and graphs and wondered whether a Gadget Fitness forum is something you guys might be up for? A friendly challenges forum with others so you can compare and give each other a push.

What do you think; would you use it?

This sounds like a great idea

I have a Fitbit flex and I love it. It's so motivating!

I have a Fitbit flex too... although I will admit it's been stuffed into my bedside table for a few weeks it really needs charging up!
As for scales, I just use the ones at SW each week... can't afford the Fitbit Aria ones yet!

I think a challenge thread sounds like a good idea

I have Withings and their scales too. And I do like all the info it churns out. It talks to MyFitnessPal and Runkeeper too so no matter what I do, or don't, they all know what I've been up to.

I really want a fitbit! Atm I just use the Shealth app on my phone and it is quite good and does pick up on when I start running rather than walking (I can almost guarantee 2 minutes of it thinking I'm running every morning when I realise I've left myself 2 mins to walk to work ) it just frustrates me that with it being on my phone I don't have it on me all the time for when I'm at the gym/ got no pockets.

Will keep my eye on this one

I think I'm going to wait til the iwatch 2 is launched before investing in anything new. I have a Jawbone 24 that has been stuck in the draw since about 3 months after getting it. If you open a new forum for it might give me a kick to start wearing it again, although I have no idea where the charger lead is

Meeeeee as mentioned ... surge! Although I don't use it for 'steps' I would share other progresses and graphs I'm proud of!

I want an apple watch

Fitbit surge is really good but if you want it for the GPS it doesn't sync your maps with MFP which I was gutted about big time! If you want to just use the fit bit app it's good other wise I would go for the fitbit HR assuming you want to track more than steps.
