I got my Fitbit a few days ago and have had my Bodybugg for a year. I have been wearing both of them for almost a week and my subscription for the Bodybugg website expires tomorrow. I got the Fitbit specifically for the link to SparkPeople but there is a HUGE discrepancy between the two. Today my Fitbit says I have 3800 steps and the Bodybugg says 5700. The fitbit says I've burned 1839 calories and the Bodybugg says I've burned 2300. So what do I believe? The Bodybugg has the sensors that attach directly to your skin so I'm thinking it's more accurate but still not sure. I guess I'll go with the Fitbit and see how it goes. I absolutely love the auto sync with the Fitbit and love that I can attach it to my bra and it won't give me a rash on my skin so it definitely has its advantages. I think the Fitbit may actually motivate me to challenge myself with the awards and such and inspire me to move more every day. I think it will take a bit of an adjustment and I can always reactivate my Bodybugg subscription so we'll see what happens. Hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas!
