    fitbit...what is it?Is it worth it?

    I've been seeing this all over the place-they seem quite pricy though-are they worth the money?

    I think so.I'm on my third one.

    I lost my first one,my second one the charger was broken so I gave it to someone who wanted one and she bought a charger.

    I bought a third one as I was lost without one.I tried using apps on phone but it's not the same as looking at your Fitbit during the days to see how many steps and miles you've done or calories burnt.

    The purple Fitbit one was £50 on Amazon.Halfords had them in for £36 but our store didn't have any.
    November exercise TOTAL 129 miles walked,4 hrs 45 mins run on treadmill.

    It's not about being better than others, it's about being better than YOU use to be.

    I have the Fitbit one. Fitbit® One™

    I was going to buy the Fitbit Flex but didn't know if it worked properly as you wear it on your wrist so I expect any movement of arm would add steps etc.I may be wrong.

    Thanks-I was looking at the flex and the one and can't decide which one to go for. I like the idea of the flex and that you don't have to take it off, on the other hand,the one does seem to be more accurate and can be worn with anything.As it's mostly walking I do I think I've almost decided to go for the one but still hesitating.

    Hiya hun,

    I use the FitBit Ultra (they've stopped making them now however I think the new one to this is the FitBit One). I absolutely love it! It really motivates me to move around more, as I always want to hit my 10,000 step goal each day! The Flex seems a good idea but i'd much rather not have something on my wrist all day. My Ultra just goes in my bra and I don't think about it at all If you're on a budget you can pick up Ultras quite cheap on Amazon on eBay still brand new?

    I used to wear a fitbit in my bra and it worked lose one day so I lost it. Suggest you make sure it's really well secured. Apparently it happens quite often.

    With hindsight a good pedometer would be almost as good

    The thing I like a Fitbit over a pedometer is I can just log in to Fitbit and get my daily,weekly or monthly data of steps and miles. :-)

    I can also look back over each month to compare.
