The way I see it, losing weight is primarily about moving more, and eating less.
Measuring your activity levels more accurately with a Fitbit device may be cool, but in itself, it doesn't actually help you to achieve either of these things.
Personally, I would rather spend my money on something that is actually going to help me work out, such as a set of weights, or a new pair of running shoes.
But I'm not dogmatic about this - certainly some people get motivated and inspired by seeing the numbers on their device to increase their activity levels further, and that's all good.
Motivation is a very individual thing, and if you think that you are likely to respond positively to seeing your activity levels, then it may well be worth the investment.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
