I have Fitbit Alta and like it a lot. It helps me to walk more.

I have the Zip and love it. When my wrists get smaller will upgrade to one that does sleep and heart rate

I have the Charge 2 and love it. My wrist is small and the charge 2 doesn't look bulky on it.

Just so you know, Bed, Bath and Beyond will honor the 20% off coupons on FitBits. This is really good when the store puts them on sale.

I have the charge 2 and it's worked fine for me. I am over my obsession of 10k steps. If if get it so be it.

i switched from the zip to the alta hr a few months ago- i really like it. it has a slim profile (but does sit up off your wrist a bit) and i enjoy the sleep tracking features and reminders to move every hour. there are a ton of different brands out there so you can definitely find something with the features you want in the price range you want. what features are most important to you?

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

Ya know, I've been running/walking for many years for exercise, and never had one of those. I really knew I didn't want one the day my sister-in-law and I were sitting on the couch having a conversation. She was waving her hand around as she talked, and then all of the sudden she said, "Oh, look, I just got my 10,000 steps." She was sitting still and the FitBit was giving her steps because she was moving her arms!

Awesome. I have been keeping track in a weight loss journal but I thought having that would be nice. I just don't know what to get. There are soooo many different types.

I’ve had a Fitbit Charge 2 since Dec 2016,and I LOVE it! I am a numbers person anyway, so it helps to motivate me to keep improving my activity and fitness. Before I would keep track of exercise minutes on a calendar, but my Fitbit gives me much more info, such as heart rate, what zone (fat-burning, cardio, peak) I’m exercising in, active minutes, etc.

Thanks! I never realized how many different choices there are! Holy cow! I know I don't want anything too big. I like the slimmer ones.

I ordered an off-brand for a lot less money and really love it!

It holds a charge for days, tracks my steps, I can set it to nag me if I'm not moving enough...it doesn't have a heart rate monitor but the more expensive version does. I'm super happy with it!
