My life is 8+ hours on a desk every workday. I got a treadmill 6 months ago but find myself often with excuses not to stand on it but rather in front of the computer in my den most of the nights. I crossed shopped the Fitbit one and decided to buy a pair of this Fitbit Zip for me and wify two weeks ago. I got to say, this idea works wonders. Nothing motivates me better than keeping a little score of myself. Now I know I walk 4k~5k a day and I spend ~30 minutes everyday at home to walk that extra couple miles to get my 10k steps. Already lost 2 lbs. My wife hits almost 12k a day and I don't know if I'm able to catch her soon.
Let me tell you why the Zip is perfect, rather than a pedometer, or the better Fitbit One model:
1. It IS a pedometer that is zero-maintenance! That is the single most important feature. It has no buttons and requires nothing from you other than keeping it on yourself. It auto-resets to zero at midnight and constantly syncs data online. Old school pedometers need to be reset and recorded manually, enough for lazy people like me to stay away.
2. It syncs with my iPhone 4s using the low-power Bluetooth 4.0 (by the way a very new, high-tech mode) about every 40 minutes or every time when I fire up the Fitbit app. Again nothing is needed from me. This single handedly beats all the Nike band, Jawbone Up or the old Fitbit where you need to plug in something to sync. One thing to note: the iPhone Fitbit app does not sync to the Fitbit Zip in the background by default, just remember to go into its settings and turn it on. When on, the app doesn't need to be in the front. You don't even see the Fitbit in the Bluetooth device list. Everything just works.

I am employed by a major US Cell Phone carrier (Desk Job) and the FitBit Zip made our list as "Accessory of the Month" in February. I had wanted one since August, so I finally picked one up. Now my hopes were not all that high, I have used pedometers before (they usually vanish into the nine hells of the laundry room) and to be honest don't do much to inspire me and usually make me self conscious because you can HEAR them chime when you move.
No such Issue, I clip it on my bra with the display facing in, and it doesn't even disrupt the line of my clothes. Vanity satisfied, the price tag had me careful not to wash it.
I love this thing so much FitBit SHOULD Hire me.
Pros: Size, color selection, the mobile App and website.
FitBit has made their little corner of the market by making it social, a way to be exercise buddies with pals in the Military no matter how far apart we are. Your account with FitBit can be connected to your FaceBook account, HUGE Plus.
When you use the App you can track your calories (Just like MyFitness Pal) and Track your water (food diary). BUT when you get close to your CUSTOMIZED goals, the App will send you an Alert. "Almost there, 200 steps to go!" You can earn badges, and if you are at all competitive its a great asset when you don't have an exercise buddy.
They also send you a weekly e-mail, summarizing your highs and lows and average caloric intake. (Sold Yet?) If you are on a weight-loss program or working with a Trainer of Physician these updates can be forwarded straight to them. Diabetic? Talk to your doctor about it, walking encourages circulation, gotta fight nerve damage!Read more ›
May 2013 the first one stopped. Battery tester indicated the battery was still very good but the Zip would not cut on. We went through the FAQ steps online for resetting the device with no luck. Contacted customer support which you must do from your profile online. After several messages back and forth another Zip was sent to us. June 2013 the other Zip died. But the second one went through a longer death with moments of awake and death with losing steps between. Contacted support again and another is on the way. Their customer service is different than usual but it ROCKS!
Mid June I purchased a Fitbit One (gave working Zip to husband while waiting for replacement) and so far I have to say it is worth the extra money. The One recharges via USB while the Zip takes $6 batteries about every six months. The One also tracks stairs (floors) & sleep, although the sleep tracking is nothing to write home about. As for the "floor" tracking; I walk the hilly neighborhood to the pool and back daily. I am getting "floor" credit for those big hills and the bigger the hill the more credit. I'm finding that motivating to make the walk vs easy drive. Another motivation in the One vs the Zip is that flower you see in images; the longer you stay active the taller the flower gets. Sit down for too long and that flower will shorten. The screen on the One also lights up so it is visible in low light situations. For additional motivation you can set messages to appear on the One.Read more ›
