Thanks for adding me to the FitBit group. I've had my FitBit for about 6 weeks and I'm still trying to work up to 10K a day...

That's annoying! You got two duds!

Mine hasn't been working well for a few weeks, and has been especially bad for a few days. It's ruining my stats! They've sent me a new one, it should arrive today or tomorrow. Mine turns itself off so it misses steps. For awhile I could hack it by manually turning it on again every time I went for a walk...but now it will actually revert to a smaller number even if I see it counting steps!

Overall I'm very happy with my FitBit though!

LaFemme....I hope you can find a way to make it work for you! FitBit support has been really good for me, sorry it's not finding you a solution yet!!

I should clarify that the fitbit records approximately 1/2 of my steps via waistband/pocket (I have tested several times by walking 100 steps and manually counting) and maybe 2/3 via calf/knee. I could just double the number of steps, but the calorie count is actually accurate for me when all steps are counted, which is really helpful to me. (Of course, just doubling the calories doesn't work. ;) )

DS9KIE: Yep, shortish socks are definitely more comfortable (and less goofy-looking) as a fitbit location than the shoe. Unfortunately, I wear skirts every day. :) I have been known to clip it to the bottom of my sweatpants if I am working out. xD

I have the zip.... I either clip it in my pants or clip to my sock ( the inside of the pocket or sock) when its on the sock i get more steps than the pocket but I still get alot of steps with pocket

so I mostly wear it on my sock and when I'm not wearing my socks then I wear it on the pocket

I noticed that when I do my elliptical that I don't get very many steps so I think the pocket works better

emoticon Since you are all FitBit folks, I thought I might ask a question here.

My FitBit (zip) doesn't record all of my steps unless it is clipped to my shoe, which I find to be lumpy and annoying. :-/
It records about half of my steps when attached at my waist or strapped just below my knee.
(It also records almost none of my active minutes, but I can live with that, since I can record them on Spark anway. ;) )

I have spoken with tech support, and they eventually said it must be a lemon (and sent me a new one, which had the same problem).

Have any of you had issues like this, or have any suggestions?

Hi! Thanks for the feedback but I know you now, you wrote in the thread and identified yourself as a member!

These are the people I don't recognize. Do you know any of them? I've written to a few of them and only one wrote back yet, she replied that she used to be on SP but was banned, she says for promoting her own fitness business in a Spark blog.

I think maybe I'm one and I thought I sent you some thing but maybe I did it wrong.

I think I friend you too

So I'm trying to send you a message and well how I don't see any where to send.

I just put a picture of a walking orange on my name now you can recognize me.

Hiya!

There are some people in the FitBit group that I don't recognize. I've messaged some of them saying hi and asking if they're in the Spark group. One replied no and that she was banned from SparkPeople. Three haven't replied and it's been a couple days. Do you think we should delete them from the FitBit group if they aren't on this team?

Hi! If you'd like to join the FitBit group, let me know. I changed it to "invited only" because there were some people who joined who I don't recognize. There are lots of FitBit groups for vegans but this one is special for us!

I have the opposite problem - forgot twice now to take it off before jumping into the shower. Kind of silly that it isn't made to cope with that (fingers crossed, mine won't be damaged, must try harder)

Okay, I'm in and it looks like I better get stepping! Hoping to get in a couple of long walks this weekend-- they say the weather is supposed to be unseasonably warm. Gotta love that!

I'll join when fitbug arrives and I have managed to work it out. My Polar heart rate monitor battery died and was going to replace that but I researched the fitbug after you mentioning it on here and decided it will suit my current needs better than the heart rate monitor

Welcome!

Here too! Toronto is snow, ice, slush and puddle. I have to do my walking on the treadmill, I really miss being outside more! I have ice spikes for shoes/boots but by boots aren't waterproof enough to make a long walk comfortable.

Hiya!

I just started a FitBit group for this team. If you have a FitBit, please join!

It's pretty snowy and cold this winter here and I missed my daily target a few times in January so I'm hoping for motivation from a friendly competition.

If the link doesn't work by clicking, try copy & paste..it's not working by clicking for me?
