From what I have researched the FitBit far out performs anything else on the market; normal pedometers are gimmicks by comparison. However there are few areas that still need addressing.
1. Considering how many capabilities this device together with its software has, the help files and instructions are minimalistic. The help files really are not much more than a few FAQs.
2. The linked food database is American. I manually obtain data from myfitnesspal.com (there is a way to link automatically but it seems a bit messy, and there is a lot of false data on myfitnesspal.com)
3. The software works (once you realise that you do not need to run the FitBit program more than once) but the interface is inconsistent and in places illogical.
4. If you drive regularly, particularly if you do several journeys each day, the device produces lots of erroneous data. This for me is its major failing.
Would I recommend FitBit - Yes.
Would I give 5 stars -No. not yet.
It has provided me with good feedback on my lifestyle and, since I am really interested in my health, I have been paying attention and making changes in how I carry myself on a daily basis, what I eat etc. It is almost a base necessity for me to have this gadget - no more fuss, no more stress, but realistic measurings, which help motivate me to keep on the right path. I walk more, climb more, run more, eat healthy food, sleep appropriately and I feel on top of my daily schedule. I feel great and I'm looking better and healthier day by day. Finally, a gadget which REALLY helps to get you going; it's always by your side and it does not lie, helping you not to stay true to yourself.
I warmly recommend it to anyone. Don't just buy it, use it, learn from your reports and make changes. One step a day adds up to the total :-)
Overall I am very pleased but not sure if I would consider buying it as a gift or recommending it, partly because of the cost and the fact you can get apps for your phone, partly because the clip can be uncomfortable and also because it isnt accurate with the Withings scales.
OK, enough with the sarcasm. I bought this on one of my many abortive health-drives, and actually one of the few things I've loved and even inflicted on my nearest-and-dearest.
The pitch is that you can just chuck it in your pocket for a week and it wirelessly sells out your details to your PC as you swing by it. Sure you can graph the information, put in an XLS and all manner of procrastination - but for me, the eye-opener was the very evident lack of exercise I took on the "days I worked from home".
Those days of flatlining certainly inspired me to take a nice long walk over lunch.
Special mention should go to Fitbit's lovely support people. I managed to lose mine from my belt as I crossed a road, only to track it down later after it had been "substantially flattened" by multiple vehicles. I mailed them to ask for to buy a replacement (as I still had the base station etc) and they sent me a whole new pack without even asking me to cover the postage.
I've no idea what their official policy is for stupidity, but just wanted to flag they're a pretty decent company and your support is seemingly appreciated.
Used in conjunction with one of the fitness apps for the iPhone (there are a few - I use MyFitnessPal) the FitBit provides feedback on walking, stair climbing & sleep patterns, which has proven very helpful.
The only downside to this cunning little device is it's size and the way it fits into the clip. I have lost it a couple of times due to the clip parting company with my trouser pockets. Oh, and it's also small enough to escape detection when preparing the laundry - beware!
Aside from those minor niggles I would happily recommend a FitBit to anyone trying to lose a few pounds and get fitter.
I agree that it overstates the number of steps. Just moving around the house appears to almost double the steps, and does not always record my going upstairs and back down. On the plus side it is about right on a walk. I think it makes a big difference where you position it. A trouser pocket seems to be the worst place. Clipping it to a T shirt, seems to understate some activities. I need to experiment more.
Driving anywhere is a pain. You have to remember to press the button for 2 seconds to start an activity, and then again when you arrive to finish that activity. I have not yet tried to exclude or remove a driving activity from my daily totals, so cannot say how to do it or even if it is possible - it is simply what I have read in other reviews.
My main reason for the purchase was to monitor my sleep. I often awake feeling tired - and now I know why. My sleep is only 70% efficient. I have only had it a few days, so I'll keep trying. I may need to visit my GP if my sleep pattern does not improve.
For those wanting to use it for losing weight, the website appears to let you record lots of very helpful data, including food & calories consumed, calories burned (based on steps), tracking weight etc.
I lost about 1 stone/7 kilos by using this. Of course I had to record what I'd eaten for the day and stuff. But it only takes 10 minutes a day. To know how much I ate and I burnt a day was almost a shock at first. Then I soon learnt how to balance these two to lose weight. If I hadn't this, I would've been just wondering why I couldn't lose any even if I was trying hard! With fitbit, losing weight suddenly got so much easier. I tried to convince my over weight friend who had been on a diet forever to buy one for him but he was just too sceptical to do it. I understand it's not cheap. But it's worth it. I think a lot more.
Also it tells you how many flights of stairs, not sure about the accuracy of that!!
All in all if you want and accurate pedometer it's great and I love it for that
Of particular interest is the sleep records, which are quite revealing.
The software is easy to use and the graphs and cumulative records are well presented.
The food log takes a bit of time at first because all the pre-programmed foods are American based, but you can put in your own favourites and soon accumulate a list of regularly eaten foods.
The device and it's software appear to be a great motivator to reducing weight, much better than faddy diets.
For the fitness buff and the shy one just getting into fitness, this little gadget brings together the fun of making big numbers but also allows you to improve those stats immediately - no need for internet access to now exactly where you stand at that point in your day. It will make you walk further than you would before. It will make you want to add the calories you eat (by the way myfitnesspal links to this gem like a breeze). If you're thinking about getting it go ahead, you can thank me later.
The only slight criticism and I am being a little picky is on the sports front, doesn't cope ideally with running and cycling. But the strengths more than outweigh the slight downsides. Go buy one and try for yourself, but remember you have to be honest in what you log to get the best result.
After weeks of "nearly" ordering it, I finally did just before my holiday. I am SOOO glad I did.
This small device has given me back the motivation that I had lost. Yes, it is a pedometer, but it does so much more. It estimates (quite accurately) how many calories you are burning as well as the steps, flights of stairs (which do include any hill climbing) as well as showing you how many calories you are burning all the time. It has a little motivating flower which grows petals the more active you are and the petals also disappear if you become sedentary during the day.
What I love the most about this device is the website. The basic one is free - I use the word "basic" loosely because the website is not basic at all. You can analyse your fitness data which is great. It also monitors your sleep which, at first, I thought may be just a gimmick, but I have found it pretty accurate because I have looked at my bedside clock when I wake up during the night and it has corresponded exactly with the "sleep" graph on their website. I actually look forward to getting up in the morning and looking at how well I slept!! You can also have buddies if you wish and you can compete against each other which also is a great motivator. This device also links up to myfitnesspal which is a great free app. I have also looked at the premium side of website which you can pay to join if you wish, you get a free trial which is great. I've had a look at it and it provides you with a much more detailed analysis. I haven't subscribed to it yet, but I will.
The actual device is very easy to wear, I clip it at the centre of my bra and you cannot feel it at all. It picks up all the steps (I have tested it for its accuracy and it is spot on). I tend to clip it on my waistband if I go on my bike though. It is a matter of preference.
Fantastic product, well worth the money. I'm just so glad I took the plunge and bought it.
