Not Liking FitBit Flex.. Back to FitBit One

Saturday, June 01, 2013

So... I got the FitBit Flex band when it first came out. Here's a list of reasons I decided to give it away and go back to my FitBit one...
1. FitBit Flex has no actual display (whereas One has a detailed stat listing and even greets you.
2. You cannot use Workout Mode to track Activities/Workouts on the Flex.
3. Flex does not track flights of stairs climbed
4. Battery SUCKS for the flex.. Had to charge it every 3 or 4 days

There's more, but I don't want to ramble.

What I will miss is the wrist band feature.. Very hard to lose and easier to sleep with it on. I also liked the silent alarm setting was more powerful... But I'm still switching back...

    Thanks for the info. I bought the fit bit when it first came out. And although it doesn't track Sleep I have found it really good. I was going to update to flex but after your experience think I will stick to mine. emoticon emoticon

    Glad you posted. I went through 3 of the originals (lost one, the other two fell apart...not very rugged). Then I had the Ultra. It, too, fell apart (those cases were just not made for long-term use). Now I have the One, and though I find the rubber holster cumbersome, and the device can easily pop out and get lost (happened to DH), I don't want to switch to the Flex, because I just don't like the feel of rubber around my wrists. It's why I never wear those rubber bracelet-bands. Now that I've read your review, I'm more convinced I don't want the Flex.

    Thanks for this! I got a FitBit One just before the Flex came out. I do like the display on the FitBit One. I just won a Nike Fuel Band and I'm anxiously waiting for it to be delivered.

    I am still using the Ultra. Saw no reason to change. Glad to see an honest review--thanks
