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.
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
