I usually wear a Wahoo TICKR heart rate monitor when I cycle. Recently, our office purchased us FitBit Charge HR wristbands as part of a "get healthy" initiative... They don't really seem to agree. [more inside]

A triathlete friend is 3 months pregnant...I'd like to get her something to make her running/swimming/biking nicer as she progresses, what might she need? I was thinking a support belt of some kind for running, any recommendations? Suggestions for other 'must haves'?
Seeking wearable fitness device, preferably one that integrates with Strava and more-or-less automatically dumps all the information into some centralized web-accessible resource. I've looked into the Fitbit Flex, the Jawbone Up and the Nike Fuelband and I'm now suffering from option paralysis. Should I aim a level up? Special snowflake details inside! [more inside]
I do not have adequate health insurance, am self-employed, and any injury that might prevent me from working steadily would be economically problematic (ok, disastrous). I also would like to begin riding my bicycle again as a form of exercise and enjoyment. Would the health benefits of biking outweigh the risk of injury? I would be primarily riding on designated bike trails, not public roads. I'm somewhat paranoid because a friend (with good insurance, fortunately) had a mishap on a bike trail that required surgery. I don't know how common such mishaps are. What would you do in my situation?
Now that WeEndure is going away, I need somewhere to track my exercise. There are a number of places that have biking and running, but not swimming. I'd prefer simpler to the more complex sites like MapMyRun (which, again, doesn't do swimming, from what I can see). I have seen this and wondered what things are out there, four years later. Bonus: a place that I can dump all my WeEndure data into so I hit the ground running. [more inside]
