Wearable tech for wheelchair users

I am interested in getting something like a fitbit or similar device  to track things such as activity, heart rate etc, I was wondering if any other wheelchair users had experience of these and could recommend one that records pushes as opposed to steps.

thanks in advance for your thoughts

    Hi @Garza welcome to the community. You may find these options useful from Able Magazine, some of our members may have some other suggestions and will be able to share this with you soon.

    some of the step counting wearable tech will work when pushing chairs or can be converted to count pushes apparently. Its worth researching them individually.   I use one but I tend to push with my partner who runs and we have simply worked out the ration of steps to pushes, but there are other options.,
