I am so excited to report that I am on same wave length as fitbit support and they are shipping me a new one. I can hardly wait and I will be doublly careful now- will have designated place to put it each and every time I take it off and so happy to have a second chance to enjoy moving more and seeing my progress.

I have an the Ultra and bought it just weeks before the One came out. Figures, LOL! I do like that the One communicates wirelessly directly with the phone app, but I can live without that feature. I'll be sticking with my Ultra until the day it dies. Too bad Fitbit doesn't offer some sort of trade-in program or the like.

Thanks for the information! I called mine a fitbit but it's actually a fitbit zip, I love it!! I also have the ARIA scale.. My zip was a gift and I love it, just can't decide if the ONE is different enough to justify purchasing it! The sleep monitoring is neat, but I already know my sleep is a mess, not sure how "seeing" it would help!! I have more thinking to do! I do appreciate your input!!!

@ BUSYGRANNY5:

I am the proud owner of a One. In addition to the SLEEP MONITORING (which I find to be a good tool for figuring out what happened the previous evening, but, sadly, will not improve your sleep habits) the One is able to create RECORDINGS. These are "snap shots" of a particular time frame during your day. With a RECORDING you are able to receive data about a certain walk, an cardio session, or, even a run.These don't impact your daily numbers instead provide you with the amount of steps you had, your calories burned, and the number of floors climbed. IMO, this is the best feature of the One. Oh, also, the One is water-resistant which does not mean you can take in under water but it will survive some sweat from your body!

So, the new "bracelet" doesn't display your information like the Fitbit does? I don't think I'd like that after being able to "look" as often as I want to with my Fitbit. I have bit thinking about getting the fitbit one, for its ability to monitor your sleep! Just can't decide if it would be worth the extra expense! I would love any input from those who have the fitbit one!

WAKEUP why don't you take a picture and send it to Fitbit via EMAIL? that should work as well as sending a text.


thanks ROCKMAN for the verification. I love my fitbit one --

I had the fitbit one and killed it [in the washer as I have told all] Got a hold of fitbit and they said to send picture of it and they would replace it. Well, tried twice to send picture thru my daughters phone and once heard back they didn't get it. I have one of those zip ones I can use but sure miss the other one. I am disgusted right now as you cannot call them- no phone numbers and is there an address somewhere so I can just send the stupid thing to them in the mail so they can see for sure my problem fitbit?? Please someone know an answer for me.

I did use the ultra but could not acess the fitbit website to down loasd setup info on this "WOW" computer, had to spend more money on a galaxy 111 smart phone to wirelessly connect to everything including the fitbit website, oh well "life goes on long after the thrill of living is gone" feel free to view my Blogs about myself and life on my sparkpage emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon thanks for the e-mail from leader welcoming me to the group

i CAN And will do this in spite of any obstruction be it man or beast or, friend or foe vietnam12veteran@gmail.com

Yes, it is my understanding that the FLEX will sync just like the other FB products. However, that will be the only way for you to view your information as opposed to the ONE which allows you to view your data on its screen.

I'm sticking with my One. In my work environment I'm afraid the Flex would snag on machinery. Plus I like to be able to look at the display and I like that the One is hidden.

it doesn't have a display but I understand you can sync/check it with your android during the day if you are not by your computer .... correct me if I read it wrong.

I'm glad I found this SparkTeam. I've been looking at the One and the Flex and trying to decide. I would be less likely to lose the Flex, but I think the One is a better choice for me for the display.

I originally had the UP wristband by Jawbone. It was a flawed product, but while it worked, I loved it. The only thing I didn't like about wearing it was that it meant I couldn't really wear any bracelets with it. And, it was sporty looking, which meant it didnt really match my dressy clothes. That may sound silly, but that is one of the reasons I like my FitOne better. I would never want to wear a wristband version again.

Agreed. I think the Flex looks very cool, but I love checking my One's display throughout the day and the fact that it tracks floors is a bonus.

Hmmm I didn't even think about it not having a display. Maybe I will upgrade to the ONE then. I think that will be better for me I like that it tracks the steps and the Flex does not

there is a thread about this started with some people's thoughts
I had also posted a link about thoughts on it from the electronics trade show showing it as one of the best new products for 2013

mine personally is that it is still not water resistent and it looks to sporty will stick with my ultra and one

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 for got what it is called but its coming in Spring? You wear it on your wrist. anyone thinking of getting it.

I have the Ultra but I'm thinking of upgrading. My Ultra doesn't sync wirelessly with my iPhone app but I know the FitBit One does and the new one you wear on your wrist will too. Just thinking about it
