It looks like the Fitbit Ultra, which I reviewed below, is no longer being sold. The Fitbit ONE took it’s place and it looks awesome!
If you are looking for something that is fun and motivating to get walking, you should look into the FitBit! I’ve had one for months now, but got out of using it. But it’s easy to use, and since it syncs to their website it’s an easy to way to look at all the info. Plus if you have friends using it too, you can compete against them!
The Fitbit tracks the steps you’ve taken, the calories you’ve burned, as well as how many flights of steps. It’ll also keep track of your sleep pattern. Where it will show you how long it takes for you to get to sleep, as well as how many times you are moving around or up at night too! Their is a cute flower too that grows the more active you are.
When I was at BlogHer I saw the most steps I’ve ever taken. I took a picture of it since I know I’ll probably not see that again. Y’all you do a lot of walking. Though by the third day I was slowing down, but still proud of myself. I can’t wait to see what my step count is going to be when we go to the beach next week!
Even kids are interested in the FitBit! Hunter has been asking me lately how many steps I’ve been taking. I guess he sees me looking at it a lot. Haha. But he wanted to know how many steps he has taken… which I don’t know. I do have my first FitBit, that I’m going to charge up and let him wear. That way he can see how many steps he’s taking, and maybe it’ll motivate him to move around more to get more steps in. I can challenge my own kid to see who can win!
My fellow blogger friend, Kim from What’s That Smell, is actually the one that encouraged me to get a FitBit. (I think, pregnancy brain is not fun.) So she offered to provide me with a quote to share with you in this review!
Fitbit helps me maintain control of my activity each day. It encourages and reminds me to get moving, and because my friends are using it too, we have fun with friendly competition and trying to “out-step” each other every day. It’s actually fun to workout!
You can purchase the FitBit on/at Best Buy for $99. There are 2 colors that you can choose from:
Fitbit – Ultra Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker – Black/Plum
