    Heart rate varies for a ton of reasons. For instance, my resting heart rate is in the 40s so whenever someone takes my HR, they ask if I am a runner because it is low. I assume cycling would do the same thing.

    I wear a Fitbit Flex 2 behind my watch on my wrist. It's a pain but the steps are more accurate than tracking it with my phone. That said, I have hit my max benefit savings for the next year so I have thought about leaving it in my bedside table until next year.

    I wear a watch on my left wrist and a Fitbit Charge 2 on my right. When I run, I wear a Fitbit ionic for GPS and podcasts. If you don't want something on your right wrist, I think fitbit still make a pendant model that you can clip in your pants pocket or if you're a woman, on the center of your bra. That's what my wife used to do.
