I wear mine either on the waistband of my pants or in the right change pocket of jeans.

I wear mine clipped to my bra during the day. I haven't had any problems with it recording video workouts.

I wear mine clipped to the center of my bra. I pedal a stationery bike and it records each "step," even though I'm not moving. It also records other stationery things I do, such as marching in place.

I found a "guard" that clips to my pocket from my fit bit...really helps in protecting my fitbit which I wear on my left hip area. Seems to record best that way. When I wear it while on my tread climber, it actually records FLOORS in the 30 minutes. I haven't done Leslies tapes in AGES.

I found mine travels very well in that little tiny pocket on the right of my jeans. What is that for any way? Too small for change. No body carries a pocket watch. If you put something in it it's hard to get it out. Oh wait! That's perfect for my Fitbit. If I put it in a pocket with change I am so afraid of a coin shorting across the terminals.

I usually wear mine inside my bra, except when I'm on my bike or doing the elliptical. Then I wear it on my shoe. So scared I'll lose it, but it just doesn't track well for biking any other way.

Fitbit needs you to change location, not just walk in place. Can you move around the room while you workout? I never had good results with videos either.

I wear mine on my bra.

I wear mine in my pocket. I find it to record my steps pretty accurately.

If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

hooked to my bra during the day and on my neckshirt neckline at bedtime

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

I wear mine hooked to my bra. It seems to work and is the safest place.

I clip mine onto my sports bra [or regular bra]. But I also read in Fitness Magazine that clipping it on your pants, near your hip, gives the most accurate reading.

Hi! I work at home, mostly all on the computer, and I live in N. Wisconsin so my Leslie Sansone tapes are pretty much my exercise til this never ending winter decides to leave. My question is where is the best place to wear your fitbit? I do a lot of in place walking and my fitbit doesn't increase steps. Suggestions?
