I was VERY disappointed in the fact that even though I clicked to go to
the "store" they said it was processed in a different place. $17.00 (30%)
is a lot of money to me, and it was the only thing I would ever purchase here.

The ad and everything about how it was handled was very misleading.

My tracker arrived yesterday. It was easy to set up, but since my internet for my PC has crashed, I haven 't been able to upload it to the website yet. Fortunately I can use my iPad for my nutrition tracker.

I ordered one yesterday. My sister has a fitbit and loves it!! I think it will add motivation as it tracks things for me!!!! My order didn't take 30% off either. would you let me know how that goes? It is still less expensive than the fitbit, even on sale!!

I love "Sparky"...he keeps me going and like everyone else, I push myself a little harder everyday. I'm up to 14,000 steps in 7 days! This is after vascular surgery on Dec. 4. I wasn't sure I'd be able walk "normal" ever again...

So do it, it's not scary and you'll have fun.

I have been using mine since November and LOVE it!! It keeps me motivated to do more each day. I have a goal for daily steps I feel is right for me and I aim for that daily. I find myself getting off at an earlier bus stop to get my steps; walking while in the elevator so I can keep the steps going to get at least 10 minutes at the time to get the fitness minutes (separate from steps). I am very happy with mine.

I got my tracker Wednesday night. I have only used it a couple of days but I love it! I am disabled and unable to walk a lot but this motivates me to move. I was afraid I would discover that I only walk 500 or 600 steps a day but I was pleasantly surprised to find i was doing 2000 + steps a day. So I am going to push myself a little and try for 2500 + per day next week.

I have one. Initially it was working then stopped so I had to reload it in my computer. Now, it's working fine. I like it on my shoe versus my bra, tried both. It's more accurate for me on my shoe. It really does show how much I'm lacking in my steps per day, darn desk job!!!

I got my fitbit flex before this tracker came out. Probably for the best since I was horrible at remembering to clip on my pedometer.

I have not bought one yet. have had 4 heart attacks since 7/23/2013. Last one was on 11/7/2013. Want to wait til my health is more stable than what it is now. The doctors and I are trying to get the heart and related problems under control with medication, light exercise and diet now. We will see what happens in the next few weeks. God blessings to everyone!!!

GOD BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALWAYS. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK. TAKE CARE.

I have a Fitbit which I've really enjoyed. It's very motivating and I like challenging my husband to see who can get in more steps/activity each week. However I did order a Spark Activity Tracker. I'm sure I'll continue to use both - to compare the results of each side by side will be kinda cool (geek stuff). Looking forward to taking it out for a "spin" so to speak. Should be here by Tuesday according to Amazon. Can't wait - squee! emoticon

The Scale WILL NOT tell you the following:
- What a great person you are.
- How much your family & friends love you.
- That you can make a stranger melt with your beautiful
smile.
- You have the power to choose happiness.

I just bought the Fitbit Flex, and really enjoy it. I saw the tracker afterwards, but I tend to forget to clip activity monitors on, which is why I like the idea of the bracelet.

Does it require a paid monthly subscription in order to work? I've wanted to get something like this, and I'd be willing to pay the money to buy it, but I don't want to have to keep paying a monthly subscription.

My shoe is the only place I'm using it and I even got some house shoes that I clip it on first thing when I get up in the morning. I've jogged a tiny bit with it (not supposed to be running yet) and I've hiked about 16 miles in 3 days with it on my shoe. I plan to ride horses with it on my shoe and ride my bike with it on my shoe. The clip seems to be very sturdy to me.

The Spark Activity Tracker has seems to have a strong sturdy clip so I'm feeling confident that it will stay attached to my shoe (or wherever I attach it). I've alway used the Bodymedia and was afraid to get the Fitbit because I thought it'd be too easy to lose.

I have ordered it; i have a us address; when i tried to order through Canada, it brought me up to another screen and suggested that someone would email me when it was available in Canada. I must have done something wrong - but regardless, i have ordered it. And i'm looking forward to receiving it.

As for fitbit - i had one; seemed like a great little item - but i lost it within two weeks of getting it; then i found it and have again since lost it.. its too bad; what a waste of money. But I think this one will be perfect as it is linked with this site and I am looking forward to the feedback.

I have high hopes of getting a fitbit but will hold off till we have better finances which will be 5 or 6 months from now.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

I posted this elsewhere, but now I'm kind of excited about this thing. Is anyone else planning to buy one? I like the idea that it syncs automatically with Spark, and it will tell you the mileage you run or walk. The mileage tracker is the big selling point for me, because I don't have a smart phone or GPS footpod, and I get tired of running the same route all the time just so I know how many miles I've gone.
