It’s no secret I am a bit of a numbers geek. Ever since I made the decision to major in finance in college and then start running numbers and tracking mean everything to me.
I love training journals, data, and pretty much everything that goes with it.
REM-Fit Active 200 (activity and sleep tracker)
- Tracks steps, calories burned, distance, and sleep.
- It gives you points based on the amount of activity and sleep you get each day.
- It is charged via USB which can be plugged directly into your computer.
- An ap for both iPhone and Android will allow you to see your activity each day.
- It measures both the amount and quality of your sleep.
First off, I absolutely love fitness trackers. I wish I wore them more regularly, but because of the tracking my Garmin does I usually don’t add an extra tracker. However, I’ve enjoyed wearing the REM-Fit lately to track different items specifically sleep.
Before I get into the sleep tracking, I will say that I would use the REM-Fit to track miles. There is a foot pod, which I personally haven’t tried, but using the wrist unit it is very inaccurate. I have tried it on the treadmill as well as outside and it is usually 3-4 miles off what I actually did that day. My Garmin (without the foot pod) is actually more accurate on the treadmill.

The thing I was most excited about was the sleeping tracking on the REM-Fit. I work very hard to get in bed at a decent our each night and try to get as restful and enjoyable night sleep as possible before my alarm goes off very early each morning.
One important thing to note is that each night before you go to bed you have to turn on the sleep tracking. I’ve heard of a few people that really don’t like this feature, but I have found that this is pretty consistent around the board on fitness trackers. I’d love to see one created where you don’t have to, but I really didn’t mind this too much.
The REM-Fit 300 pillow is large and firm, which is perfect for me. I cannot stand really soft pillows so I was excited to see that it provided excellent support. I wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable pillow I’ve ever slept on, but I do enjoy it!
The band is comfortable, light weight, and easy to sleep in. It tracks both how long you sleep and the quality of the sleep you are getting. The better you sleep, the more sleep points you get. You can set goals not only for sleep but for steps, distance or calories burned depending on what is most important to you.
I really do enjoy the REM-Fit Active. The pillow was nice, but I’m not sure I would purchase it on my own. It doesn’t stand out to me any more than a traditional pillow. I’ve never seemed to have success with “memory foam” type pillows, but if you do then you would probably enjoy it!
I do really love the activity tracker and it is much more comfortable than many I have tried in the past.
