I’ve had a Fitbit One for over almost a year now. I’m obsessed with it.
It still amazes me how little steps I take every day with how active I am. How the heck do people walk 10,000 steps a day??
Though, when we’re in Chicago visiting my sister my steps are through the roof! It’s no wonder she stays so thin without working out – one day we walked 11,000 steps before lunch! #jealous
My favorite Fitbit feature, though, is that it links to MyFitnessPal. I don’t have to estimate my calories burnt while working out – it’s all done for me. And, surprise surprise, I burn a lot less calories than I thought. A LOT. It’s been quite an eye opener!
The big downfall is wearing the Fitbit One.
On my bra. Right between the girls.
Sometimes it’s easier to hide than others.
And, I’m a hugger. Ask my friends. I like to hug. And sometimes it’s awkward when the person I’m hugging is like “what’s that?” and points to my boobs. I once even got the question “are you wearing a pager?”.
Plus, I had to remember to put it back on after showering and changing clothes. A little annoying, but not a deal breaker.
So when the Fitbit Flex came out I was dying to have it. But I couldn’t justify getting a new one “just because”. BUT I could justify it when I was offered the chance to use the Flex from Verizon Wireless!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to get this offer. I’m so lucky!!
It came within two days and I’ve been wearing it ever since (maybe 2 weeks now?). It’s a bracelet (and waterproof so I never have to take it off!), which is so convenient. You can see I wore it to the wedding last weekend.
And no one ever noticed!
The only thing I don’t like so far is that there isn’t a screen to see the steps taken. I have to open the app on my phone and wait for it to sync, but it’s really not a big deal.
I’m excited to try it out this weekend – I have two big events. I’ll let you know!
Do you track your steps? Do you use a Fitbit? Which one? Do you love it as much as I do??
