    Keeping me going

    • Written by from Stellarton

    I had come to a stalemate with working out; I had lost 70 pounds but seem to be at the same point for along time. I then decided to get a fitness band to help me; I researched the many options and decided to go with the fitbit flex. I love it! It has kept me going and some days I find myself going for walks or even jogging in place to complete the amount of steps I want to do in a day. I like that the app sends me a weekly email to let me know how I am doing. The only complaint is it doesn't have a watch; so you know what I am going to do, I think I need the fitbit force. I will let my bf have my flex and hope he enjoys it as much as I do. It syncs with the aria scale and the myfitnesspal app that I use daily. I am already down another 8 pounds since purchasing this at the end of December.

    Almost perfect product

    • Written by from Worcester

    This is great for tracking most activities and sync's easily and flawlessly. I can tell the band(s), it comes w two, lg and sm, won't last that long but they are replaceable and cheap enough. It's also water resistant so you can wear it swimming, shower, etc. I've only had it for a few weeks now but from what I've read and experienced it looks like one of the best activity trackers out there. On a lighter note, it has already helped motivate me to exercise more. Last night after putting on my pj's I noticed I wasn't quite at my daily goal so I went outside (in my pj's) and walked around the block a few times to reach my goal!! Enjoy

    Love the unit but hate the bracelet

    • Written by from Hudson

    It keeps track of steps, miles, very active minutes, etc and vibrates when you have reached your goal. Lets you compete with friends, which is very helpful in keeping you accountable. Many times I have taken that extra walk because my friend will know if I was lazy that day. It even has a silent alarm to wake you in the morning.

    The bracelet needs to be replaced every month or so. I have had my flex for 2 1/2 months and am on my 3rd bracelet. The bracelet needs to be redesigned, but the unit itself is GREAT!!!

    Best activity tracker I've tried

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    This tracker is very easy to use and the interface with ios7 is crisp and well designed. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the bracelet has a very limited life span: it doesn't stand up to even the minimal wear and tear of gently removing the tracking element every few days for recharge, and I can see that I will need to replace my bracelet after only a couple of months. The tracker and charging cable are still fine and this isn't a major drawback as the replacement bracelets aren't that expensive, but they also aren't available everywhere.

    Lots of functionality

    • Written by from Hummelstown

    I had the Zip, but it just didn't generate enough information. The Flex has a great online app and links to a variety of apps, i.e. MapMyRide.

    The wrist band takes a bit to get used to and locking the clap can be a challenge until the holes in the band loosen up a bit.

    One thing it doesn't do is track cycling. I remove it a put it in one of pockets but it doesn't quite do the job of recording the miles or steps. It also doesn't do steps.

    It's worth the money if you are looking to get a handle on your level of activity.
