Got my Spark today

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

I have been lacking motivation for fitness lately. Oh, I have kept my fitness streak alive by still doing at least 120 minutes of intentional fitness every day, but it has tended to be lower intensity than this time last year. So, what's a girl to do to get that mojo back?

Get a gadget!

I ordered the Spark activity tracker as an early Christmas present to myself. It came in the afternoon mail today, and I got it synced this evening. Set up was simple and fast. That is good since I am technology challenged. I wore it for my evening walk with the dog. It worked the way it was supposed to . I like the clip on it, as it seems very secure on whatever I clip it to. I got paranoid about losing the cheap little pedometer I was using, because it kept falling off. Now, here is hoping that this new gadget will help get me moving more vigorously. It can't hurt, right?

    Enjoy it! It helps so much to have a tracker! I am still getting use to my fitbit! But I love it and when I went for a visit to my doc he was so happy that I got it not just to motivate me , but he can look at the data with me on visits.
Take care, your doing great!

    Enjoy it! I cant get one sent to England, so stick with my fitbit, which i love. I follow news of the Spark, but suspect I dont really need one. Reviews have been mixed.

    Good luck with your new device, I just received my replacement Spark, but haven't yet set it up! I also have a Fitbit that I love.... hoping my replacement Spark works long enough for me to grow to love it!

Spark on.....

    I have the Fitbit Zip and love it. Thought about the SAT, but it doesn't sync to phones yet. Working nights, I make sure I've synced before midnight to catch all my steps. Let us know how it works for you! emoticon

    I will be very interested in your experience with it. I still can't believe it can tell the difference between activities, especially a strenuous, but often stationary exercise like boxercise and not even moving like on an elliptical. How can it measure steps or intensity when you are on the same spot?? Am staying tuned!

    I hope you enjoy it. I keep going back and forth between the Spark device and a Fitbit.
