Default activity watches/monitors

Hi all! Has anyone found an activity watch that they really like? I am looking for one that will track steps, heart rate and calories burned? Any ideas? Thanks!

Suunto... Garmin.... or Polar would be what I be looking at for HRM's... and for an "activity" tracker the Nike FuelBand or the FitBit...

I currently use Suunto and Garmin for my more serious training... but I've had several Polar's as well... and for just kicking around to track daily "activity" l use a Nike FuelBand which I find pretty addictive... but in a good way...

I have one by New Balance; it tracks calories, steps, HR, distance, amongst other things. I'm very pleased with it!

Well there is no device I know that tracks heart rate 24/7 but you can do it for the duration of your workouts, you'd also want one that has a chest strap.

The BodyBugg and similar arm straps (forgot other brand) do 24/7 tracking that is probably the most accurate for a 24/7 device. Fitbit, Fuelband and others aren't as accurate but they are fairly easy/non-intrusive and inexpensive. I got a fitbit free and I think it is great for giving me an estimate of my activity level.
