Review: Fitbit

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend bought me a Fitbit. I had been eyeing the JawboneUp but they had problems and took it off the market so I was really excited when I found the Fitbit.

Here is what the Fitbit is designed to do:
  • Track Steps
  • Track Stairs
  • Track Miles
  • Track Calories Burned (including your BMR)
  • Track your "Active Score" (which is how active you are during the day.)
  • Track your Sleeping Patterns
  • Track your Food

On top of all of the tracking it does, you can also set 'goals' for your self like walking x amount of miles in a week or climbing x amount of stairs in a week.

It is seriously addictive. Personally I find that tracking everything I do during the day not only makes me want to meet my 'minimum' but makes me want to beat my previous day/week totals too.

The sleep tracking is a really neat feature. It tracks how long you've slept and how many times you woke up, which is really interesting for me because I like to see how my exercise affects my sleep that night.

The Fitbit website also offers a "Premium Membership" with more in depth reports and a 'Trainer' for personalized workout plans.

I love the Fitbit. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to lose weight or just be more active in general. For me it has certainly done it's job and exceeded my expectations.
