5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome tool for fitness, February 24, 2012

This review is from: Fitbit Wireless Activity/Sleep Tracker, Black/Blue (Health and Beauty)
I love gadgets but I am always skeptical of things like the Fitbit. I read everything I could on this and the bodybug and body media. My wife really wanted one so I convinced that the best ratings was for the Fitbit. She ordered it, loved it and less than a week later, I ordered one for myself.

We wear them all but during showers and we both find them to be the best motivator we have every invested in. Now, instead of sitting down watching TV all night, we are watching TV while trying to get in those extra steps to make our goal.

The feedback numbers and the website are a good overview of how active you are. Is it perfect? No, no technology is perfect, there are always margins of error. However, many have said that you could just buy a cheap pedometer to do the same thing. I have yet to find a pedometer that is cheap and accurate. I purchased a pedometer watch prior to this for $39.99. It is great while I am exercising but it stops once I stop and is not able to record all your daily activity. A pedometer you can wear all day and is somewhat accurate cost about $89. The Fitbit cost $93-$100 and offers tons more features like counting stairs and tracking sleep. To be there is no comparison.

I have had mine for about two weeks and I love it. I wear it all the time and I am annoyed if I forget to put it on after the shower. The only thing I would love to see is it to be waterproof so you can swim with it but at least to can add that to the webiste tracking.

It is a great product and a worthy investment for those trying to improve their fitness and health.
