I have, and like the FitBit One, but I will buy the Flex when it comes out. I don't like having to put the One into the armband to go to sleep. I too, stopped syncing with SP because all my steps went into cardio fitness. When it really isn't cardio. It's just steps. You CAN however track the steps. I haven't changed it so it doesn't count steps for fitness cardio. I will try that later. I will get back to you.
I did read a lot of negative reviews of the Jawbone Up. Don't remember what I read, but I did decide on FitBit.
I am not familiar with the Nike product.

I have worn the Body Media Fit for 2 years and have found it a valuable tool. It interfaces with web flawlessly every time. I love the feedback on steps, calorie burn with details of exactly how many and when. The sleep feedback is also detailed and averages of reports are easy to access. I recommend this instrument as being a great motivator too.
Bonus: It can now sync with SparkPeople, which I do use and am happy with too.
Thank you. I was also wondering about the bodymedia thing too if anyone can help :)

I'm using a FitBit Ultra, that has now been replaced by the FitBit One (I believe), but is still serviced on the website.
I use my FitBit for tracking my steps and stair climbing, monitoring my sleep patterns and general motivation, but I do not sync it with SparkPeople. I did originally but found that it converted all of my steps, even just like a trip to the bathroom, into minutes and then on into calorie burn. In effect, I could not track my true cardio because FitBit lumped all of it together.
So now I have two tools: SparkPeople and FitBit. I definitely find that FitBit motivates me to take more steps during the day! I really enjoy it. Worth the $$$$ ...
