Its very accurate and really lets you see what you are and need to be doing. I have the black one and so far I love it! Depending on the person, its between 5 and 10 steps off from what I see. (Not bad at all) In my case its under so whatever I walk/run, I am doing better than that, which I love!

My buddy had the Fuel band and an FT7 from polar. The FT7 tracts his calories better IMO because he's training for a triathlon and he runs for long distances on the tredmill. The FT7 has at least 400 more cal on then the Fuel Band.

For some reason he gets his kicks out of the "fuel points" which I think is an asinine idea. Why bother creating a separate system of measurement when you already have a steadfast caloric value? I like my FT7 but its just a work out deal, not an all day thing.

I sell 3 or 4 major types. Polar is my favorite as far as accuracy, but it doesn't appeal to the "cool" generation as much. Fitbit is the new hot item that came out. Best buy has them, online as well as Dicks Sporting Goods (at least in my area). IIRC the fuel band doesn't do heart rate? Either way all are doing caloric burn off of a formula. The FT-7 is pretty expensive, but there's also the FT-4 as an option
