wireless trackers, one for $99.95(includes "the tool" to measure the length and quality of your sleep) and other for $59.95(more a pedometer). Both are very useful to keep track of your steps, climbing, and the calories you burn.

I'm amazed how these little devices can tell so much, I'm saving for one of them, but I've read all the info in their site

Besides the features that CAROLJEAN64 mentioned the Fitbit One also has an alarm on it. That can be set for anytime of day and can be set to repeat on specific days, or even for different times on different days. It is silent and does a vibrate thing so it wakes you without waking anyone else that may be trying to sleep. For me this has been another feature that has become useful. I also like on the Fitbit One you use a usb cable to recharge it, so you are not having to go out and find and spend money on batteries for it.

Fitbit... yes it is part pedometer. It tracks your steps, the number of flights of stairs you climb, the number of calories you are using, your level of activity. When you get it, you connect it to a website. You put in your gender, age, height and weight. Each day you can record your stats. It links with Spark so you can enter your food in Spark and it appears in Fitbit so you have a pretty good idea of your calories in/calories out numbers.
It also keeps track of your sleep and its quality. You start a stopwatch when you get in bed and stop it when you get up. By wearing the Fitbit in a wrist band, your level of activity is recorded

That sounds like a pedometer. Could you tell me, please, how it differs from from a pedometer?

It's kind of like a pedometer but it tracks more activity than just walking! I don't have one so I don't really know, but I think that's the simple answer.

What in the world is a 'Fitbit'? I've been hearing that name around in SPville but I have no idea what it is.

Thanks for sharing! It's being advertised so heavily, I didn't know if I should believe the hype!

I know what you mean, CarolJean, I am more aware of moving now, and make more of a point of getting in more activity, so I can see my step and stair count go up!

I got mine for Christmas and I love it as well. I am not much of a gadget person, but this little thing has really changed my attitude towards movement. I have set some minimums that sometimes have me climbing the stairs a few times before bed. I am also much more likely to let the dogs in and out, which my husband loves.

I've had mine for a few weeks now and I love it! But I'm a gadget fiend, so it fits for me (I also have a HRM with a GPS that I use still for workouts). I like that it gives me an idea of my daily calorie burn, and fun stuff like how many floors I've climbed. I went skiing a few weeks back and it told me I had climbed the Empire state building. I've also climbed the tallest snowman, the tallest pencil, and various pyramids.

And now and then it cheers me on...

Do you have one? I'm sort of tempted to get one but I'm not totally convinced yet!
