Is anyone using a fitness tracker device with their GOS phone?
I do a lot more tracking of my activities these days but this is just based on GPS and/or step count. Ideally I'd like to get Heart Rate information, which then leads to the potential for having information such as sleep and health tracking.
I've looked at the PineTime watch paired with something like the GadgetBridge app. However, I've also read of certain limitations with such hardware and how Garmin's v4 sensor is almost as good as a chest strap monitor (allegedly). The potential downside of the Garmin is whether it works without a) Google stuff and b) using their servers for crunching data. Or whether there's another solution that's good and private.
Hence the post.
