So I did it… I gave in and bought a Fitbit. I know I won’t use all the features and will probably get sick of it after a few weeks. But for now, it has made it’s new home on my wrist.
I got the Fitbit Flex which tracks my steps, distance, and calories burned during the day, and tracks my sleep at night. It even has silent alarms you can set to wake you up by vibrating. You can track your meals, water intake, workouts, and more (still figuring out what the “more” is).
You can monitor your daily activity two ways:
1) Via the Fitbit app
2) Via the Fitbit dashboard online
You can even become friends with others who have Fitbits and challenge them, cheer them on, and see their activity. Somehow I clicked a button the other day that “taunted” one of my friends to take more steps… still trying to figure it out. I quickly clicked the “cheer” button after, so she didn’t feel too hurt.
I’m on day three of using it now and I’m starting to get more used to it. It is weird to wear at night though… We will see how long it lasts.
Anyone else have a Fitbit? What do you think about it?
