Effectiveness

Well, I never used one but my wife did and she liked it. It kept track of her steps and that is what she wanted. So that came in handy for her. If I ever wore it to see what type of sleep I get I could tell you right now I don’t need something to tell that my quality of sleep is the worst. I don’t sleep that well.
