Anyone have a FitBit? What can you tell me about it? Worthwhile? Pros? Cons? :)

    I love my FitBit - it hasn't missed a beat and even copes with my duck walk shuffle!!
Its an Ultra. And I have moved more since I had it - gotta keep the flower with leaves on it!! LOL!! (simple things.......!!)

    Nice to see you!
I have the Fitbit One, and love it. I used a BodyBugg previously, but when the subscription ran out, I decided to switch. Great decision.
It tracks my steps and distance, calories burned, and sleep. It syncs with SparkPeople, so my fitness efforts are automatically recorded on the site. It tracks all calories burned, which gives you a good idea of how active you've been (or not!)
You can track your nutrition on SP, or the Fitbit site. It's been very beneficial, and it's a great means of motivation to keep moving and reaching goals.

    LOVE my ultra!
It's a souped up pedometer that also rates your sleep efficiency.
I just went back to see if I blogged about it but only in bits and pieces as I was learning about it.
The Ultra dropped to $80 when the One came out (I don't have a smart phone so was happy with the Ultra).
The sync to SP is not perfect but adds to the fun.
There are several FB teams now.

    I got one for Christmas and love it. Its helped me realize how innactive I've become and I've been working hard to get to 10,000 steps/day. I have a few fitbit friends and we compete to get most minutes. Its like wearing your personal trainer on your hip - suddenly I don't mind parking at the last parking spot and walking to a meeting, or several trips to car to bring in groceries. I'll get on the elliptical just to get the 4000 I need to get me to 10k. Very small & easy to clip.
