I got the Loop when the store was out of Fitbit. It came with a great reccomendation. My two biggest problems is 1) the app for the phone did not work on my Samsung 2) the "one size fits most" did not apply to me, the loop did not go small enough for my wrist. Since it did not fit my wrist it would not read correctly. For these two reasons I needed to return the Loop and backorder the Fitbit.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sort of like a pedometer with a watch, but with added functionality. I set a weight loss goal online, that goal and the energy needed to be expended daily is loaded into the Loop; each day the Loop tells me whether I've expended enough energy (calorie readout) or activity graphical representation of the amount of activity needed) to meet my goals. I like that the Loop is also small enough that I have it on all day and remember to look at where I'm at with my progress.
