Fitbit Decision Made

Monday, March 11, 2013

Well, that was easier than I thought it would be! I am so glad I decided to ask my fellow Sparkers for advice. You came through for me yet again!

I checked out the recommended link with the comparisons, and that helped considerably.

First of all, it pointed out that the Fitbit Ultra was no longer available. Scratch that one from the list! The Fitbit Flex has potential, but it is not available until May and I am in my "I want to do this right now" mode. The Fitbit Zip looked too small and too easy to lose, and it needs a battery, which I definitely donít want. That left Fitbit One, which looked just right. (Oh, my, a Goldilocks moment!) I also looked into one other similar product from another company (Jawbone UP). All in all, the reviews for the Fitbit One were the most positive and it has all the features I want.

So, that is it. I have made my decision, and I am looking forward to using it to ramp up my activity level. Can't wait!

    Congrats! I have the Zip and love it. It clips very securely to my bra! DH has the One and loves it. I had an original and an ultra. We are long time Fitbit users!

    You really did some serious research. I wish I would have thought to ask my fellow Sparkers.
I found my fit bit one has been the right choice for me.
