  • Does anyone know if this tracker keeps track of just steps. I have a very expensive pedometer that I use for walks and daily use. I was hoping that some device could keep track of "movement" such as when I cycle for 15 miles. - 6/2/2013 2:36:41 PM
  • I agree - it would be great if this could be an ongoing monthly or quarterly challenge! - 5/30/2013 7:12:33 AM
  • Would be nice if this challenge could be restarted... - 3/28/2013 9:28:19 AM
  • Just got my new FitBit this week. Please restart this challenge. - 3/10/2013 2:21:41 PM
    I am so bummed!! I just found out about this challenge and it's now over. This would be a HUGE motivation for me.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start another! :))) - 3/1/2013 11:47:17 PM
  • I am so excited that my DH gave me the Fitbit. I get motivated by anything electronic. I am hopeful that this Fitbit will track my steps better than the step counters I've had in the past. Either way, I'm going to burn up the calories. So excited!

    Way to go SparkPeople!

  • I just got synced up today, and am hoping for the support I need to loose my fight with morbid obesity. - 2/18/2013 1:30:47 PM
  • Got a fitbit zip yesterday and soooo excited! Also this is awesome that it will link with my sparkpeople data - GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!! - 2/11/2013 10:37:22 AM
  • frankly, I wish there weren't contests since they are only open to Americans. - 2/6/2013 1:35:48 AM
  • I am confused. I thought I signed up for the fitbit challenge when I got my One as a Christmas gift. However, when I look at the challenges page, it doesn't say that I've joined the challenge. I also joined the JumpStart Jan. challenge, and it says that I part of that when I go to Challenge Central. Any ideas? I have linked my fitbit to SP and see my data on my SP workout page. - 1/25/2013 5:35:12 PM
  • I absolutely LOVE my fitbit Zip. I've had it a little over a week and hands down it is the best fitness tracker I have ever seen. More than that, it is a fitness motivator and keeps me going all day long. - 1/22/2013 9:56:51 PM
  • Just got my Fitbit One for my birthday today! Cannot wait to use it tomorrow. - 1/22/2013 9:25:53 PM

    My company bought us Fitbits as a wellness thing and I like to walk on a daily basis and it helps keep me on track (no pun intended). I love the way it syncs when I'm near the computer. Just have to remember to charge it every now and then. - 1/20/2013 12:28:50 PM
