What's the most important factor to you when buying a fitness tracker?

We can understand why you’d value tracking accuracy in the first place, as this is the main use-case for these wearables anyway. In saying so, we’ve previously noted that your fitness trackers aren’t 100% accurate in the first place. But it makes sense to buy a tracker that gets closer to that fabled 100% than others.

We’d also get it if you voted for style, as you definitely want something that looks good and feels good. But there are plenty of other notable factors you might prioritize, such as app support or a specific companion app, battery life, and pricing.
