I am happy to report that I am really enjoying it. I'm not using it to its full ability, but I don't need it for ALL of the bells and whistles. I have LoseIt and my heart rate monitor (which is this one) for the parts that I don't use in FitBit. I really just wanted the FitBit to tell me the things that those 2 things can't: how much I move on a normal day and how I'm sleeping. I like to look at the calories I've burned too, but don't put to much faith in it. I don't know how that part is calculated, but it's still a good reference I think.
You can set a goal for the number of steps in a day. Since I have an office job, I set mine for 6,000. I have hit 6,000 steps once, and it was on the Sunday we went to the RV show. I'm trying to reach the 6,000. I mean, I pee at least 6 times while I'm at work, I print everything on the printer that's not in my office. You can even have your FitBit alert you when you are halfway to your goal or once you've achieved it.
So far, the sleep part has been my favorite as it has really cleared some things up for me.
Those are my thoughts on my FitBit. I really do love it. It's helped me figure out that I need to get off my ass more throughout the day and that my sleep leaves something to be desired most nights. Most moms of 13 month olds probably think the same thing, but at least I have evidence now.
Do you have a FitBit? Let me know and we can be friends!
