    With the new year right around the corner many of us will be setting new resolutions to get into shape and shed some of that extra weight packed on from holiday festivities. There are plenty of excellent fitness trackers available that make it easy to keep track of your progress, set new goals for yourself, and even share your triumphs with your friends and family across social media. We want to know what fitness trackers you're looking to pick up, upgrade to, or are currently using that you're totally happy with.

    I'm a Fitbit Surge user. It's too big and chunky for my personal preference but I love the features. I also have a Fitbit One that I use when I am at work and can't be seen with an unsightly Surge sticking out of my sleeve.

    Me and my wife both had Fitbit Flexes and loved them. Unfortunately, they *both* broke after a year.

    The app is really well done, so I might be willing to try and pick up a Charge or a Surge...

    Just received a FitBit Charge HR for Christmas... Very happy as that's exactly what I wanted.

    I've been going back and forth between continuing with my FitBit or switching to using my 6S to keep track of steps and motion. I feel like I might get credit for too many steps with FitBit (I could be wrong) but with my phone I have to remember to keep it on me to get all of my steps each day.

    I've had the original Garmin Vivoactive for about a year now. Absolutely love it except I wish it had a pretty screen like the AW. However the color E-Ink screen lights up crystal clear in daylight which is perfect when I'm on a run.

    I use it heavily for Running-it has an incredible amount of Hague features as well as dual GPS modes, Lifting Weights, Sleep Tracking, Notifications from my iPhone and a few other odds and ends. 7 days of battery life is also stellar with heavy use.

    Depends on your needs. I have an Apple Watch so I use a Fitbit One. I clip it to my pant pocket and off I go. I like the social integration that Apple doesn't offer.

    I currently have the Fitbit charge hr. Originally I liked it, however after having it almost a year, I am on my 2nd band. The bands don't hold up. The plastic separates from the band. Fitbit was great and offered a free replacement but I fear once this one doesn't hold up and it's after my year of owning that they won't replace my current one. I like the design but don't like the quality of build.

    The fitbit app is hard to beat. I have the one and am looking at the Charge 2.

    I'm definitely excited to see how the Nike Apple Watch performs though...

    Using my watch a lot, but still use the Fitbit app with MobileTrack to participate in challenges, etc., for motivation. You do have to have your phone with you -- I wish it would read from the watch! But it doesn't hurt to double-up if you get a bit of extra push from the social aspect of the Fitbit app.

    I did like the mobile track but didn't do much by way of challenges. Probably should though.

    I'm doing a workweek challenge with my wife now... I won't let her beat me

    Add it back, and we'll challenge! You won't start this week though since it's already Tuesday... but feel free to add me!

    I LOVE my garmin forerunner 235. Coming from a Fitbit it's a whole new world. I've had a Fitbit since the original charge dropped and it has inspired me to live my life differently. I wanted more information on my workouts so I decided to go with the garmin.

    I miss the challenge abilities but having the kind of info that the garmin provides is critical now for me to get the best out of my workout.

    Some of the things I really like about the garmin as compared to the Fitbit.

    Almost 2 weeks battery life
    Always on display
    All notifications come through
    Workout trainer programs built into the watch itself as well as you being able to program your own workout in before going to the gym and use the watch to guide you.

    I had a Jawbone Up3 before upgrading to an Apple Watch. I liked it, good tracker, looked stylish and did what it was supposed to do.

    I decided to treat myself to an Apple Watch so didn't see a point in the tracker and the watch.

    My other half has the Fitbit one and she loves it. Because we have a baby we spend a lot of time walking with a pram. She can clip the Fitbit one to her so it accurately tracks her steps which doesn't happen very well if you have your hand on a pram handle

    I've been using a fitbit for a while now as well, but I've been meaning to upgrade to something newer and a little different. Do any of you guys have any suggestions on some really good fitness tracker models out there?

    Fitbit One. I can always clip it somewhere. It's the perfect companion to my Apple Watch and doesn't take up wrist space.

    I had a Microsoft Band 2 for about nine months and really liked its fit and features. But every three months I was going back to the Microsoft store to get a replacement because something would fail. Finally asked for them to just credit me back and surprisingly they did.

    Used my IPhone 5s for a while to count my steps for my work's fitness program. Works great but got tired of constantly having to remember to have it in my pants pocket or annoyed with its weight bouncing on my leg while on treadmill.

    Started wearing my wife's old Fitbit Flex a week ago and kind of like its simplicity. One less device that I have settings to manage on. Set it and forget it. Love having the vibrating alarm back for getting up in the morning. I do miss the notification ability for calls and texts though. I might think about getting the Flex2 so I can have that feature back. Not sure I really miss having a display either, even for time checking. No more worries about scratching the watch face while at work and less worrying about the passage of time around me.

    I had the original Band and it was the same way. Went back to Fitbit after that.
