I have been thinking of getting one also. I will check out what the flex fit bit is and see what the difference is.

FitBit is coming out with the 'Flex' in the Spring and I am going to get that one! I just learned about FitBit this week and wanted to order the One right away. After I saw they are coming out with the Flex so soon, I decided to wait. It seems pretty awesome but would love to hear more about it from others.
Great topic and thanks for the feedback. I am thinking about getting one.

I like mine a lot. I don't find that the sleep tracking feature is particularly accurate, but I don't really care too much about that information, so it doesn't bother me. The charge lasts a long time. I took mine on vacation, and it worked for 10 days without a charge, and it was really neat to see how much walking I did on my trip (a lot).
I don't have personal experience, but my friend and her husband have the fitbit under their insurance. It has made them far more aware of their activity levels (and made them a bit competitive with each other!) and saved them quite a bit on their health insurance as a result!
Like any tool, only works well if you use it! ;)

I'm considering getting the above gadget bu would love to hear first hand experiences with it-both pros and cons. Keep in mind that I'm deaf so any sound factors won't be useful for me.
