My Fitbit Zip rides clipped to the center of my bra when I'm wearing one; otherwise, it's clipped to my waistband between my navel and my left hip. So far, so good.

I wear my Charge on my left wrist (non-dominant) with all of my other bracelets. I just ordered a 'Fitbit cover' from a company on Etsy so it can look better than a plastic band among my jewelry! Can't wait for it to arrive!

I used the large band to see if 1) I could get it around my ankle and if it would snap completely, 2) to see if it tracks better.

I was noticing if I held my arm still that I wear it on my numbers would pause a few seconds so I'm going to try wearing it on my ankle a few days to see if there's any drastic difference in the tracking.

I wear my Zip on my waist band or right side pocket. I used to wear my SPAT on my shoe but I lost it. so I bought the FitBit Zip. The clip is much tighter fitting. I love that you can see your actual step count instead of the lights. emoticon

I find if I wear it on an ankle inside of socks/sweatband that my "One" records a lot more steps than if I wear it at the hip or clipped to my skirt/trouser waistband. Don't know why this should be. I find it tends to pop off when I wear it on my bra and was concerned I would lose it.

I used to use the Fitbit one and it worked great, but I had some minor panic moments when I'd wear it on the center of my bra. One day at work it actually slipped out and I didn't realize until I got home - cue the panic of driving back and scouring the floor for it! After that I started wearing it facing inwards on my pocket to keep it safe in case it did slip free of it's clip.

Now I have a Fitbit Charge (LOVING IT), and I wear it on my left wrist. I'm not used to bracelets or watches, but the band is very comfortable and it's not heavy at all!

I've been wearing the Flex on my left wrist, unless I'm at work. Then I either put it in my pocket (which doesn't seem optimal) or clip it to my bra. I do that since I wash dishes and even though they say it can get wet, I'm sure bleach water wouldn't be good.

Hello everyone.
My son gave me the Fitbit One for Christmas.

During the day I usually wear my it in the center of my bra facing inward.
Today I wore it on my waistband.
Tonight I realized that it only recorded 2 stairs even though I walked up and down our back deck steps several times and then our front porch steps. I went out to a shed a few times and the shed has steps, too.

Any suggestions?

Hey does anyone know if you change the place where you wear it, does it make a difference in your steps??

Also how do you sync your fitbit to your steps, so it tracks your steps right??

I wear my fitbit on my right wrist. I sometimes take it off of a night because it gets a bit annoying wearing it 24/7. So I don't always log my sleep.

I started with a Flex, and I had them on my left wrist. When TWO different ones malfunctioned (the company was awesome about sending me a replacement) It was suggested I try the One. I wear in clipped to the right ride of my sports bra ( pretty much my everyday bra). If I am wearing jeans, it gets clipped facing inside my right pocket.

Zip in pocket

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

I wear my fitbit zip clipped to my bra - when I'm at the gym, it's on one of the straps, when I'm anywhere else, it's in the middle between the cups. emoticon

I wear mine on my sock or my shoe. I am short legged and it does not seem to pick up my intensity well anywhere else. I can be walking my fastest and hardest, heart pumping, and it will not count the cardio as active minutes, so I keep it there as much as possible, When wearing it on sock or shoe is not feasible, I put it in my pocket. It does not do well at all on my waist.

With Consistency I will OCCUPY!
