Pros waterproof, easy to wear, convenient
Cons Counts steps when typing, and other activities. It is a mess and not accurate, so why bother?
Fitbit has no consumer support. They do not respond, they mostly sell, and then leave you hanging.
Summary Wait for something else or the bugs Fitbit should have worked out ahead of time to actually be worked out
Pros It is very lightweight. It also comes with a large and small wristband so no need to worry about sizing. Battery life is phenomenal. Works as a wonderful adjunct to other members of the fitbit family
Cons Minimilistic Design Asthetic (I personally love it)
Clasp takes some getting used to, can be frustrating sometimes
Replacement bands come in three color packs but cost $30
Summary I currently own the Fitbit Aria Scale and loved that it monitored my body weight and body fat composition. Using it along with Fitbit's iOS App has allowed me to lose 13lbs over the last month along with 4% of my body fat. The app had a section I wasn't using, "Activity". I wanted an activity monitor that would work well with my existing App. I had heard many negative reviews of the Jawbone, which was a shame because I liked the feel and how soft it was. Nike has the fuelband with more bells and whistles but where it matters most, Feel and Comfort, it is severly lacking The fuelband doesn't have that much give and if you have a boney wrist it can be painful at times, plus it comes in Small, Medium, and Large. So you will be in the store opening packages trying them on. The Apple store had some crappy piece of plastic to size yourself, mine was small/medium, but when I took one out of the box it had NO give and was uncomfortable. The Fitbit Flex is light and comfortable like the Jawbone and very classy. I love it. It doesn't bother me like the Fuelband and at nearly half the cost, does exactly what I need it to do. I want it to look subtle, feel comfortable, track my steps and rest, and last for a long time on a single charge. It's brilliant and makes a wonderful understated adjunct to your personal fitness regimen. People who have noticed it, love it and like how clean and well-designed it is. Try it out!
"I like it."on by murph555
Pros Good way to have control over your activity, weight and caloric input.
Cons Maybe a little uncomfortable to sleep in, not terrible.
Summary All in all, a nice tool. Doesn't sync with my phone, but certainly does with my laptop.
Pros Water resistant
harder to lose than the Fitbit One
Easier to use while sleeping (no extra strap)
Cons NO Stairs
Step count is always way over what it really is (compared to the ONE)
Lack of display
Getting the taps right for different modes
Calories burned is WAY to optimistic
Summary Great idea, lousy implementation. Step and calorie counts way off compared to the FITBIT one, also, no stairs, and the lack of a display... I think if this can be trained / software revised, it could be the awesome device we were promised... For now, I will stick with the ONE...
Cons Maybe a bit too much counting....
Summary Best gadget that you can find! From wristbands...
