I've had the Fitbit One for several years. I had used the Omron for MANY years, but the Fitbit gave me "credit" when I rode the recumbent bike at the gym. No other pedometer did that. Not sure what I'll do when they quit making the basic "One". I'm only interested in tracking my activity/steps & (mostly) get in my 10K+/day. I told a friend that if I had one that was tracking my sleep, I'd probably be awake all night, wondering if I was getting enough sleep - ROFL!!!!!!!

I have the Charge HR, love it because it lets me know how I am doing with exercise, sleep, walking and intensity of movement!

I have the Fitbit Charge and love it. I started with the flex but kept breaking the bands. I like the way this one plugs in to charge. I like that it automatically records on spark people.

I'm in a group of people from around the world that are over 60. We learn about each others corner of the world and the step count is how we check on each other. It doesn't matter what your step count is, It matters if it has a big change.

Fitbit Charge DOES have GPS in it. You just have to learn how to start it. It's not that hard. Someone should be able to teach you.
I love my Fitbit Charge. It doesn't matter to me how accurate because I'm only using it as a measure against myself.

I think I have like a Fitbit Charge. I think it's the one before the actual watch. I love it mostly because it's a stylish watch. Unfortunately, I follow the mapmywalk more than I follow Fitbit, because mapmywalk has a GPS that tells me exactly how many miles I've walked. I honestly can't figure out how to calculate my steps to get an accurate Fitbit. I've read the instructions, but I don't know how to measure how long I've walked and calculate the steps. I tried to use the mapmywalk app to determine how much I've walked and calculate it that way, but I just got an odd number. I guess the Fitbit is a nice backup, because even though it's not accurate, it's always nice to have a watch and also reach 10k steps, even though it may not be accurate. Besides, it reminds me how many steps I have yet to walk. Even though, usually when I walk, I get it done in the morning, so the daily reminders don't really matter to me.

I mainly wanted it to see what my workouts were like, what my heart rate was getting to and the overall calorie burn etc.. I know its not 100 percent, but it atleast gives me an idea. It definitely makes me walk more if I notice my steps are low.

It motivates me to get more steps, it tracks every thing from water, heart rate, sleep I simply can't live without it.

I got a good laugh today when I had to go back into my bedroom because I had forgotten what I went in there for in the first place. Then I realized at least I got some extra steps tracked on my Fitbit!

I really like that mine reminds me to move every hour, and that I can use it to track and better understand various health-related things over time (like sleep quality and what Fitbit terms "female health"). It turns out I also really like the breathing exercises you can do with it.

Oh let me count the ways I love thee......
I love that I can see how many calories I have actually burned that day and eat accordingly. Burn a lot I can add and like the other day when I spent 5 hours in a car it was easy to see where my limit was. And that you can set your daily deficit.
I love the resting heart rate and to see the progress I’ve made.
I love to track calories burned on my walks and the speed.
And I love that it syncs it all with SP and vice versa.
My Fitbit is the best motivator ever. And it makes it feel so easy.

It's a fun gadget. I like it because you can add friends (I only have people I actually know in person) and do challenges.

I like the sleep insights. I've got the HR so it gives me the [surprisingly accurate] detail about REM, light sleep, deep sleep, etc.

one of my rewards for the progress i've made so far was to upgrade to a fitbit alta hr. i like the wrist-watch aspect much more than i thought i would, it's comfortable, and i don't have to worry about it falling off or out of its holder (i have a zip as well). i love that this one tracks sleep, but i think my favorite thing is the hourly reminder to move. my job involves working at my computer all day, so the hourly reminder to get some steps in is great! i also use it as a trigger for standing vs sitting at my desk :)

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

Re-start: 1/2/18, -10 met 1/30, - 20 met 3/27, -25 met 4/18, -30 met 7/4
Next goal: -35 by 7/31

greetings fellow sparkers I love my fitbit for so many reasons. I think what I love the most is the automatic recording of my steps and the amount of time spent walking. these are the two features I use the most. since I bought my fitbit I have been able to walk a total of 310 miles in 11 weeks. because of the record keeping I am very motivated to keep walking. I was amazed at how the steps have added up and am also thrilled that I am gaining strength in my legs, I have had 2 total knee replacements and 1 total hip replacement in less than 5 years. I only wear my fitbit when I go for my walk . why do you love your fitbit?
