I’m going to go through the four that I’ve used, compatible with both Android and iPhone, to try and answer that very question.

At Viewpoints sometimes we see people researching for products that are discontinued or not for sale anymore. Maybe they saw this item on eBay or at a garage sale and they want to do a little research before buying it. Maybe they heard rave reviews from a friend or family member, and want to know more. Fitness equipment often falls into this category. There’s a thriving market for second-hand fitness equipment, and often the products last longer than the original buyer needs them. When a product isn’t manufactured anymore, we still want to help consumers make the best decision when buying used equipment, or looking for the next best replacement.
