Activity tracker suggestions?

I'm in need of a new pedometer/activity tracker. Any suggestions? I have had the Fitbit one and zip in the past. I'm looking for something that has a display and that I can track a workout with. Have no interest in it tracking sleep. I do a lot of biking so it would be nice for it to register that as well.

 One thing I didn't like about my fitbits is I had to do math to figure out how many cals I burned and steps during a workout. I don't know if any of the trackers have like a button I could push before and after a workout to separate it from my other activity? Does that make sense. That is a feature I would really love to have.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I use a Wahoo Blue HR. it's a chest strap that sends the info to your smartphone and u use your phone as the screen. U don't need to wear your phone. It just needs to be in same room as you. It has great screens and settings for running, biking, swimming etc. also denotes distance etc.

Have you looked into the Polar watches?? I've been considering one and am debating the purchase of an FT40 or FT7 - if I do, I've noticed that the prices are significantly cheaper on eBay. Best of luck.

I use the Misfit Shine.  Its not the greatest for the physical display-you have to sync it to your phone to see the actual numbers but its also a watch and water proof.

My fitbit Force has a display plus  I hit a timer for workouts and it seperates those from my normal day.
