Pros The idea of a small device that can track your physical movements and other health related activites is a good one.
Cons Device does not acurately record activities. Afyer two weeks the soft ware stopped working. The only customer service is e-mailing to a computer generated help desk.
Summary The device still has many bugs to be worked out. With no customer service it's doubtful the product will improve. I feel as though I fell for a consumer scam.
"Not needed"on by yiannigr
Pros Can't thing of any.
Cons It exists, along with similar high priced devices.
Summary Mr. Rick Broida, who is a CNET contributor, and writer, and who delves in the cheapskate side in all of us, offered this "thing" up for a low price, and today asked us why it did not generate much excitement.
I could not find a way to post a comment anywhere else, so I came here, to do just that.
I am going to say that, the idea of a small device that can track your physical movements and other health related activities is a bad one, if it costs that much money.
My wife bought me the Fitbit flex, which I immediately returned, because a device that counts my steps , and costs $100, is just stupid.
Paying around $35 for the zip, is still stupid.
The world, and this is my opinion only, does not need a step counter.
If you are serious about exercising, walking or running, you don't need a step counter. If you are not serious about exercising, then spending money on this thing is just absurd.
I am surprised that there are actually people that spend money on this things.
I think that people that actually wear them, must have issues.
That's my comment Mr. Broida.
Useful things will sell, useless things are not.
I did buy those headphones on the bonus deal yesterday.
Pros It's cute and small
Cons It doesn't work
Summary I have been using Fitbit for a week now and am NOT impressed. I was shocked at the cheap quality of this $59 device. It reminded me of the Japanese giga-pets back in the 90s. The dashboard claims to sync your steps via a USB device attached to my laptop. It doesn't accurately record anything. The only thing it does successfully is navigate to the proper date.
I put the device on when I come downstairs in the morning and it tells me I have burned 230 calories. After water walking for 60 minutes, it displayed 0 active minutes. The number of steps and active minutes seems to jump up and down arbitrarily and does not sync automatically. It doesn't even sync properly when I refresh my screen
It is supposed to sync with MyFitnessPal, but I need to log my start and end times of exercise. Even then, it doesn't add up
I think this is nothing but a genius marketing marvel. I am ready to throw it out
Thanks for your submission!
