Fitness trackers and nutrition trackers
My partner and I are on a mission to get fit by January. I feel like I'm constantly trying to get in better shape, but I lose motivation too quickly. Since I'm the healthier of the two of us, I feel like my partner is looking to me to get us started. I've always been a bit of a numbers person, and I've started thinking that having a fitness tracker would motivate me to get up and get going. My manager and best friend both use them and have given me rave reviews, though my manager has warned me against Jawbones. I'm looking for something with fairly detailed data, preferably with a heart rate monitor and a great sleep tracker. Right now I'm waffling between the Fitbit Charge HR, the Basis Peak, and the Misfit Shine (no HR, but a much better price point, and water resistant!) I was wondering if anyone has used any of these (or another tracker) and has some input. I feel like it's a silly thing to spend money on, but if it works to motivate me I'm willing to try it.
I'm also looking for a good nutrition tracker that's fairly comprehensive but not too complicated. It could be an app, a website, or even a book and a journal. I eat well for the most part (though I do need to cut out some junk) but I have a very slight iron deficiency. I've been a vegetarian for nearly twenty years with no issues, so I really want to look thoroughly at what I'm eating to see if I can't figure out what's going on. Does anyone have a resource they could recommend?

Reason: I'm posting from mobile and meant to put this in the "Physical Fitness" board. Is there a way to move it? Mods?
