I've been debating purchasing one but I have some questions Did you find the fit bit helpful and easy to use in the long term? In other words, do you think it is worth the purchase price? How long have users been using/relying on it? Any quirks or things to be aware of with the fitbit?
I've purchased other fitness gadgets before like step counters, HRM (not something conducive to spontaneous activity if you haven't put on the chest strap beforehand), interval timer (also useful but very oddly eats batteries like crazy) and while they are certainly useful for certain applications, they aren't necessarily useful in a broader sense like this little gadget might be. I'm hesitant to take the plunge because of the price but it does look pretty darn cool. I just don't want to buy it and then it eventually it end up in a side table drawer.
Also, I've looked on the fitbit website and can't seem to find the information I need. How on earth does it track your hours of sleep and assess your quality of sleep?
