This seems like an amazing price for the GPS version. I bought a refurbished non-GPS version a year ago and it looked new (and has the same 1-year warranty as new, so they stand behind their refurbs). Also, having owned both Fitbit and Garmin, Garmin won out for me. The build is a lot better, the always-on display that's visible in sunlight is great, the interface is more usable, and they update the firmware and squash bugs more often (if that means anything to you). Steps and heart rate are equally accurate on both, and altimeters (stair counts) are equally terrible on both. The two things I will say about Fitbit is that it detects sleep and naps significantly better than Garmin, and has better warranty service. Garmin doesn't even cover broken bands in their warranty. You might get one covered unofficially but it's hit and miss. Fitbit will just send you a new unit when something is wrong, and often not even ask for the old one back. Still, I look at the 3 Fitbit replacements I had during the year warranty because each one would fall apart in 3 months, and my Garmin that still looks brand new without a scratch after a year except having had to glue the band once, and I'd rather have the Garmin.

4 days with heart rate on 24/7 and using GPS a couple times during that period for hour long runs each..I used during a marathon recently and it had @ 1 bar out of 4 battery left using GPS and heart rate after 4 hrs (cutting it a little close for me, I like a little padding). charging only takes @ hour from near empty..

Current gen GPS chips are accurate to ~16' then next gen chips due out in a couple of months will be accurate to 1' - I'm waiting for the upgraded chips or the inventory liquidation of models with the old tech

I bought this a couple months ago on the similar deal. Already had to use the warranty because the GPS stopped working. It's not much hassle and they didn't ask me to send the old one back. The replacement is a more beaten up one but GPS works. Overall it's a ok buy for the price.

Do you guys like the app? In a way that's more important to me than the device because the devices will come and go.

I like the app, YouTube has videos of reviewers going over it if interested in seeing how it works. I have had no issue with it and prefer it over the Fitbit app...it's quick and gives all information in a well thought out format IMO...

I have this one that I bought through Verizon for $49.99 back in December last year. Very good and my wife loves it. Battery would last roughly 4-5 days. Definitely worth my money.

Any recommendations on a simple, quality heart rate monitor? I'm not looking for all of the other bells and whistles

Good deal.

Unfortunately this being presented as a coupon - at checkout it says "coupons: TCL16852427053QX (Limit 1 per order)" - means I cannot use my $25 gift code on top of it. Oh well.

For just a stand-alone HRM, I highly recommend the Mio Slice. If you go to Brookstone, it's $29.99.

It supports ANT+, so if you have a device that supports it, you can stream your heart rate to the device while you stream your heart rate to the app.

Note that pairing to a GPS watch via Bluetooth isn't guaranteed. I dealt directly with Mio customer service and they shipped a Mio Link to me at their cost. Great customer service, if you ask me.
