I've had equal success wearing it clipped on my pants pocket or on my bra..... only lost it once and that was when it was on my waistband.

Yes, that is a known kink for the tracker. There is an entry that you can enter on your FB page to eliminate these steps. Click on the ACTIVITY and then enter the following in the LOG ACTIVITY box:

Automobile or light truck (not a semi) driving

and then the time started and time ended and that will eliminate the steps "earned."

I probably should have clarified over sensitive - I noticed while I was driving that my step counter kept increasing. I carried the Fitbit One attached to my waist. Yesterday I moved my One to my bra and it seems to be less sensitive to driving.

I purchased my fitbit one on Saturday. When I wear the fitbit clipped to my waistband, I feel like it is TOO sensitive. Has anyone else had this problem.?

Today I'm wearing my fitbit one attached to my bra. I am going to see how my numbers compare.

Inside of pocket. Outside of pocket. Carry it in your hand. My Fitbit One's been tested and it's very accurate. It's not like a regular pedometer so you can't go wrong.

Have fun! emoticon emoticon

I don't bother with the clip. It remains in the junk drawer. I wear it in my front pocket. Just have to be careful not to have it slip out when pulling out car keys. When I play golf, I place it in my hip pocket as I keep tees in my right pocket and ball mark in my left.

I don't think there is any loss of accuracy (in pocket vs clip) and I prefer to hide the FB vs. have it noticeable. I even skip the clip for my phone and just keep it in my other pocket!

I find it most accurate clipped into my pocket too.

@ RICKINTN70:

I find that wearing it on your waist directly above your knee gets me the best results. Be sure to secure it so in case it does come off of your waist you don't lose it.

I wear mine in my little watch pockt on my jeans. It doesn't fall out and it's right on my hip. It works great unless I am doing something that is all arms and no legs. Pulling weeds, rearranging things on a shelf etc.

my husband wears his clipped to his shirt pocket .... doesn't seem to miss steps or anything ... we come out just about step for step when we walk together .... the clip is so tight it really wouldn't fit clipped to his waistband.

most men where it on their waistbands. you want it so that it is close to your body to make good contact when you make steps.

you can experiment around and see how it works for you on your shirt. check also on FB's faq section where they suggest

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 got my Fitbit today and I am trying to determine the best place to wear it. Does it measure accurately if it is put down inside a pocket or would it be better to attach it to my shirt?
