If you own a Fitbit, tell me about it.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I don't own one but I am doing my research on them. let me know what you like or don't like about them. I know about them and what they do. I just want to hear if anybody has one and what they think about them. Or if there is a better product out there.

    I loved mine, but lost it. The best part is they are small. the worst part-- they are small -- and if it comes out of the sheath or off your belt, you'll never find it. I agree then with going with the bracelet style when it's out.

    I understand also there are some advances and some of the other products actually do heartrate/caloric monitoring using pulse -- that would be an added upgrade. But when I was wearing mine, I used to take the stairs much more just to get the stat up. Achieved the desired effect.

    I recommend the fitbit one, but with the caveats above. For a hundred bucks, not a bad buy.

    That's what I have been reading about. I need to get one to try out before this Friday.

    I have a FitBit and love it. I would suggest that maybe you wait for the new one to come out which is actually worn as a bracelet. The reason i say that is that my office mates and i all got FitBits from our boss for Christmas. I washed mine, my friend lost hers and my boss lost his. The FitBit people were great and replaced them, but to be able to wear it as a bracelet leaves less chance for it to fall off of your clothing, to get left on clothing and washed with the laundry, or to forget to wear it altogether.

    We are a competitive group and it really does make you more aware of how little you move. Additionally, if you're at all competitive, there are groups you can join even if you don't know anyone else who has one.

    Good luck!!
