    i love my fitbit

    after hearing about a lot of people raving about fitbit my hubby decided to buy me one. I was so excited to get it and use it, I love it. It motivates me to real my daily goal and push myself to beat it. I love how it measures steps, kms, calories burnt, active minutes, and sleep. I love how I can link it up to my fitness pal and monitor calorie intake vs out. since getting my fitbit last year I have lost 10kgs with its help. I have recommended fitbit to three of my friends so far and will continue to do so in the future.

    Fitbit - easy product, great motivation!

    I knew that I had to lose weight so I decided to get a Fitbit to help motivate me with ensuring I got sufficient exercise each day. My brother in law had a Fitbit Ultra and raved about it and lost a heap of weight so I got a Fitbit Ultra as well. That was two years ago.

    In the past two years I have met my weight loss goal and have lost over 15kgs. In that two years I also fell pregnant and had my daughter! I used the Fitbit in conjunction with MyFitnessPal in order to keep track of what I ate and how much as well as how much exercise I was doing. For me, this made everything easier than previous attempts at losing weight and I got the results I wanted.

    Such a motivating product

    I have tried both the fitbit flex (the wrist band one) and the fitbit one (the clip on monitor) I initially bought the flex and loved it! I love how it connects to all my devices (iPad, android phone, laptop) so I can check my progress whenever I like. I also found it super motivating, I would check my progress, not like the lack of activity I had done and I would walk back and forth across the kitchen while cooking dinner.

    I did find that the flex didn’t accurately track my steps while pushing my kids in the pram, so I sold the flex and bought a one. The one is great and also has the added feature of tracking floors ascended. I live in a 2 storey house so was interesting to know how many times I went upstairs.

    The only way I didn’t find the one superior to the flex was the sleep monitor. I al often forgetting to put the sleep band on at night.

    2nd on the leader board :)

    I am ever so slowly walking my way to the top of the leader board – woo hoo! (actually I think everyone else must be having a bit of a slack week :)

    I have started to go out for a half hour walk as soon as the kids are in bed, and it feels great, reminds me of my days pre-kids when I would go out for a run. I am tempted to crack into a jog (hang on, maybe I should be that enthusiastic).

    I spent the day cleaning our old house, and I am sadly disappointed that the FitBit can’t register 4 hours of sweeping, mopping and vacuuming. All that work actually equates to very little steps :( oh well, I’ll just have to head out for that evening walk and stretch all my aching muscles.

    Thank you FitBit for getting me out and about again.

    absolutely brilliant

    I got my fitbit last June and love it!! connects well with Ipad and iPhone.
    Also love how it connects with My fitnesspal. Both aps work together so only have to enter the information once. I have recommended it to all my friends and family. Its hard to imagine life without it.

    Woo Hoo! My first 20 000 step day!

    I have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather and hubby being on holidays to get out and about. We had a lovely day out and about in the city with our little man and I forgot all about having my fitbit One on. When we were on our way home, he asked how many steps we had done and I nearly fell out of my seat when I saw it was over 20000.

    We’d had such a lovely day and it hadn’t been a goal to walk that many steps but we just walked where we would previously have driven. I wasn’t sore and bubby just snoozed in the pram while we took in the sights and talked.

    Thanks fitbit! I can’t remember the last time we were in town and not spending the whole time thinking about parking, and I got a badge to boot!

    Obsessed - in a not psycho way hopefully :P

    I’m kind of obsessed with my fitbit…it’s so easy to check I’m a bit like “oh 2 more steps, go me!”. It’s kind of sad, but also, hugely encouraging. And for me, the best part is the sleep function, oh but my lack of sleep was driving me insane – but seeing it right there – the lack of sleep – allows me to prioritise healthy sleeping habits…GODSEND! Love it. Recommend it. Did I mention I love it? =)

    Counting Steps with fitbit and my Little Man!

    Well this week my steps aren’t the ones I’m most excited about! Our little man took his first steps and we are all pretty excited about it.
    One of the main goals I have set for myself since hearing about and using the fitbit One, is that I would be an active mum for my little fella. Well now that he’s up and about, I get to enjoy it without feeling guilty because I have a head start already on achieving my “Moving Mum” goal!

    Looking forward to my family taking these big steps together (with fitbit of course)!

    Drumroll please......

    Now I know this might not seem like much to the mums who get out to the gym and have a strict exercise and diet regimen, but for me, who is neither of those, it’s a red letter day! I have lost 3kg since I had the fitbit! This is the first time I have lost weight since my little one was born a little over a year ago and certainly the first time I have lost weight over the silly season!

    I can’t stress enough how awesome this is considering I haven’t made any serious life changes, just taking the stairs more, logging my food and watching those steps accumulate. The fitbit has been all I wanted and more! Hubby’s getting one for his birthday next month so we’ll be competing for the highest number of steps! Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, come to think of it, I might give him his present a little early so we can get stuck into it!

    Time to step things up a knotch

    I’ve had my FitBit for a couple of weeks now, and have come to the realisation, that although I thought I was spending the day running around after two kids, really I wasn’t! On the average day I was ticking over 7k steps – not quite what I thought. So today I thought I would challenge myself on how to get up to the 10k without the need for a special outing. Every half hour I did 5 laps of the house (round the lounge, up the hall, through the kitchen and back again). The kids thought I was going a little nutty, but soon joined in as we marched, skipped, jogged and slid around “playing laps” every half hour. It worked!

    It took very little time (it is not a very big house), but really made a difference. Now to work out how to get a few more “active minutes” into the day.

    I can totally say that FitBit is keeping me motivated and inspiring me to work more incidental exercise into my day.

    Haven't taken it off since the day i got it… Great little fitness addition!

    My husband bought me one of these for Christmas and i love it… I wear it everyday to monitor my steps and i’m very surprised that even when i don’t for for a run, walk or the gym i still do quite a lot of steps. I also love monitoring my sleep, i know i don’t get enough sleep most nights and it’s great to see how i slept each morning when i check it… In a way it promotes me to get more sleep! I would recommend the Fitbit to anyone who asks me about it and now my 11 year old son wants one!

    Jawbone is much better.

    I tried both the FitBit & Jawbone… I can honestly say I found that Jawbone was more suited for my needs! FitBit seemed to be a bit more buggy, even though I used it on my non-dominate wrist, it still gave me incorrect readings.

    Fitbit gave me the motivation and boost I needed!

    I first bought my FitBit Zip last year after deciding I really needed to change my lifestyle and quite a few friends had them. To be honest I wasn’t sure if it would work for me but it did and soon I was walking everyday, getting a minimum of 10,000 steps and doing fantastic! I had signed up for a 10km walk to raise money for MS and having my FitBit in the lead up to that definitely helped me make my goals!
    The FitBit is very easy to set up and very easy to sync to your computer etc. When I first bought one it didn’t connect to my mobile as it was an older model but now it does.
    They are very comfortable to wear and most of the time I don’t even realise I’m wearing it! Every so often it digs in if I’m bending the wrong way or something but so would anything you wore on your belt!
    I admit I have been a bit slack recently but am hoping to sign up for the walk again and will need to start working on my fitness etc and my FitBit can certainly help me with that.
    The picture is of me after walking the 10km! The 10km was fine….the rain and freezing weather wasn’t!

    i love it

    I have a fit bit flex and I love it. I hate having to take it off to charge it. It is great, sometimes has some syncing issues and has come of my wrist but overall it is an awesome product that is really motivating to keep you active and do more activity during the day which is exactly why I bought it. $120 well spent, I want another just so I don’t have to go with out while charging lol. Would recommend to anyone who is trying to keep track of their activity and sleep patterns.

    i love it.

    It does have it’s issues like sometimes the connectivity with devices doesn’t sync very well, and the wristband can come of easy, but otherwise I love it, I can see how active I have been through the day and if I need to do more or if I can relax. I don’t buy myself things often but this was $120 well spent. Would recommend to anyone who wants to know how active they are or how well they sleep at night. Brilliant device. Oh and I love the silent alarm, wakes me up better then any other alarm and doesn’t wake kids up.

    i love fitbit

    I love fit it, it is great to track your activity during the day as well as what you eat. It is great, let’s you know when you need to step it up a bit. Only thing I don’t like about it is that the foods you can put in, seem to be American? So you need to enter foods manually which is a pain, it doesn’t havebarcode scanner like other apps I’ve used, though the other apps don’t have the wristbands so you need to carry the phone around constantly. Anyway I love fit it, it’s been helping me a lot lately, have lost 16 kgs, by using fit it to help me make sure I’m exercising more then I’m eating. I’d reccomend in a heartbeat.

    Love it

    I have a Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity & Sleep Tracker which I originally got because having chronic fatigue I wanted to get an idea of what I was actually achieving each day (step wise) and what was happening with my sleep pattern. I have been wearing my fitbit flex for more than 6 months now and love how easy it is to see my daily steps and how it pans out over a week. Because I don’t have an iphone I have to look at my results on my pc – but that is ok, I can get an idea of my steps by tapping my flex which indicates each 200 steps I have achieved for the day.

    The sleep pattern has been the most interesting – you can set the device to measure very sensitively (which picks up all movement) or less sensitively. The device has provided info which has been incredibly useful for my doctor and I in discussing my CFS.

    The negatives – the device comes with a large and small wristband – but you would need a teeny tiny wrist to fit the small wristband. The unit is not compatible with android phones. Apart from the steps tracker and the sleep tracker most of the rest of the application rely on you inputting data – too much effort involved to make it useful. The wristband is not very well made, with a lifespan ranging from a few days to a few months. Battery life is short (1 week) which requires removing the wristband to recharge the unit, and then the joys of trying to put the wristband back on.

    For the price however it provides what I want it to do, so overall very happy with it.

    helps in being fit

    Hubby and I bought these things off a store so we have one each. Its s fun way to keep monitoring not just my fitness but his as well. We make challenges and bets for ourselves to keep us motivated. Its a cool and stylish device that helps us in our lifestyle. We have fun in keeping fit and its easy to connect with our other devices. Its like a wedding ring truly but less expensive and is as blingy.

    Pretty neat device

    My husband bought one a few months ago which surprised me because he’s not really into fitness. We thought it was great that you can track steps, sleep weight etc. The data was really easy to access and we love that you can track how you are going. We bought the scales too – and they are amazing. We love that we can have profiles and then access the data without having to remember what we weighed last week. Its comfortable in comparison to other monitors and pretty discreet. Someone even asked me where I got my bracelet from! We are going to get another one so that we can have one each. He got the blue, but I haven’t decided on a colour yet. Definitely good for motivation because of the range of data it records.

    I love Fitbit!

    I have owned a fitbit for 8 months now. My first one died and just went black but fitbit replaced it straight away. I love counting my steps and it makes me feel healthier

    Fantastic I love my fitbit

    I love my fit bit, I really enjoy at the end of each day looking at how many steps I’ve done and how far I walked.
    The only down side I have is when driving if I go over a bump it puts itself in sleep mode which is annoying.

    Easy to use, easy to wear

    The Fitbit looks stylish and is easy to set up. It is interesting to see the amount of activity and sleep you are doing during the day. My husband loves his Fitbit, and it helps him to figure out how much he is burning at the gym as it measures his heart rate. I also like that it isn’t bulky, and it looks like a wrist band as opposed to a fitness device.
