Okay I love it but there are some faults:-
Positives are that I am definitely feeling inspired to do more, even digging out my Wii board and using it as a stepper and using my Wii a bit more, going up and down stairs just to get my floors in and "dancing" on the spot when I have a chance to get the odd step in here and there.
1. The sync with SP doesn't work for the weight. Seriously it would be fantastic if I lost 149 lbs over night but well, hello, don't think so. It is putting in some weight that I have not even targeted for but I think is perhaps an "ideal" or something. My target is 140 lbs being 10 stones which puts me at the top of my BMI range but I am muscular and big boned build and having always been fat I don't want to end up on the skinny side.
2. Yesterday apparently I climbed 19 floors of stairs - er no, we drove to Wales and went up and down a few hills in the car. I actually only did 5 flights of stairs but got in over 10,000 steps. The steps may also be slightly out but the GPS device we use for tracking recorded a good distance so I am content it was accurate enough. The next Fitbit they bring out needs an off switch for when in the car going up and down and over bumpy roads.
But that does not put me off. I am irritated by the SP sync issue and hope it gets picked up and sorted - it has not been running a month yet so early days. I am not going OTT on accuracy - it seems to be the most accurate pedometer I have ever used and is not hindered by my big belly. I still love it and now my husband's Fitbit arrived too we can compare and encourage each other.
