ADDENDUM AFTER USING IT
I am amazed by the amount of data it provides me for a swim, recognizing which stroke I use, the velocity and timing for each stroke, the time for each lap (and the number of strokes) and each flip turn, and much more.
I don’t believe any other tracker comes close to this.
[from my very first swim (yes, I am out of shape)]

Pre-Order Price Ended October 31— $49 if you buy two or more,  $59 for one – the pre-order price for a few more days —
Later: $79.

With its 3D tracking and its feedback information, I wanted to be able to track my strokes in swimming, and get live feedback during cycling. At this point no other activity tracker is able to provide this type of data – and it is much cheaper than other decent tracker.

PCWorld: “MOOV NOW™ does what Apple Watch and Fitbit cannot.”
 Mashable: “Make workouts better, safer and more efficient.”
BGR: “A former Apple engineer
showed me the future of wearables.”
Trusted Reviews: “The fitness coach takes on a new look – with its smaller design the Moov Now is currently unrivaled. If you want to get into shape, investing in this activity tracker will be money well spent.”
Wareable: “A triumphant return, with its smaller size, improved strap and six months of battery life, Moov Now is a more mature tracker that’s ready to be a big name in sports technology. It’s geared towards helping you be better at the sports you love, rather than reporting how you did. It’s an easy and compelling sell, and for our money, is what wearable tech should be about. Some of the misgivings remain: the need to carry your smartphone being the biggest downside to the device. However, just as with the original in 2014, there’s still no device that can match the Moov in terms of benefits to your fitness.”
