|I'm looking for a wristband/watch/"thing on the arm" with GPS, heart monitor and pedometer(accel+gyro).|
I looked at what is on the market, but sending my bio metrics to fitbit or garmin servers is not something I want to do.
Is there a fitness tracker band that is hackable in a sense that I can get the data out of it without proprietary software? I don't mind the firmware being closed source, as long as there is no LTE. I just want to sync and manage my data myself.
