    Motivation in a gum stick

    • Written by from ROYSTON

    I've had a fitbit for getting on for a year. The story so far:
    drop it in your pocket, tuck it in your sock, hook it on your belt - no matter, the accuracy of steps is pretty good. Take time on the web profile to record your stride length and the distance you walk/run are accurate. Remember to add activities such as driving because your steps occasionally count up as does your stairs climbed. Add start time and duration and it works out the rest. Do remember to take it out your pocket on the beach on holiday! Do check your pockets before doing the laundary!
    my first bit was lost on a beach on holiday. It's replacement has thus far been through two spin cycles, and had a car drive over it. Battered dented and falls apart if not in the silicon pocket, but it's still going strong. A tough little gizmo that help keeps you motivated.
    Link with a couple of friends and you'll be walking around the block to enure you're ahead in steps. link it with myfitnesspal app and you'll have a much improved food database to use too.

    Excellent

    Pros:
    It was accurate recording steps taken. Synchs well with iPhone 5 and Mac computer.
    Addictive, I keep checking the information on the fitbit, and I try to do more than the goals set.
    It is also very discreet.

    Cons:
    The fitbit secures to clothing via a clip, which can work itself loose. I recommend using a small lanyard asap so if it drops off, you won't lose it. It has 'dropped off' 5 times in 2 weeks, so I am thankful I did it.
