So far, I'm really loving my Fitbit. It took about 5 minutes to set up and I was off and running (well walking). For those not familiar with it, it's small - about the size of a USB stick. It comes with a small case with a clip and a wrist band to wear while sleeping. I'm terrified I will lose it, but the clip seems sturdy. I hook it to my bra while working out and on the inside of my pocket for the rest of the day. The wrist band is for sleeping. It's a little on the wide side, but not overly cumbersome.
Two things that surprised me. The number of steps I take in a day and how many times I wake up in the night. I personally think the awake numbers are a BIT off. Here's why - I have a few wake ups throughout the night, which I can see. The problem is unless you turn the Fitbit off the FIRST moment you start to awaken, it records every movement as an awakening. Those morning stretches, the snooze slams - all count as wake ups. I need to remember to stop my sleep timer as soon as my eyes flutter open.
So to sum it up, so far, so good!
