I love my Fitbit One!

I got it yesterday for my birthday. I love it. It is so motivating. I got on my stationary bike twice today just to see the charts

The Fitbit One also monitors sleep and last night I did not sleep walk one single time!!!!!! I was exhausted from all the walking and shopping at The Commons yesterday so I think that helped me stay soundly asleep.

This little fitbit would only be better if it could actually send me back to bed when I do sleepwalk and prevent me from eating...

I have a Fitbit, but it is just the steptracker. I like it, too. It helps keep me honest and does work to motivate me as well.

Sleepwalking? More steps tracked! LOL.

I'm havering about one - more so since reading people's enthusiasm for them.

Is it suitable for people with skin allergies (eg, non-precious metals)? Is there a particular model that you like?

I've had the FitBit Tracker for over 12 months now and wear it clipped to my bra, i've had no problems with it - i have fairly sensitive skin i.e. get a rash if i wear a watch and if i wear anything other than gold earrings i end up in A&E with a severe allergic reaction

I have the fitbit one which monitors sleep as well as steps, stairs, calories, miles and some other stuff.

I slept walked 20x last night for a total of 333 steps!!!!! I burned a bunch of calories too, but I'm not sure what I ate... definitely a yogurt

I have psoriatic arthritis and my skin is pretty sensitive, but this is in a rubber clip/case.

Carly, did you see what I said about the calories burned in the DD thread?? If you go to your LOG on the dashboard it will tell you how many "food" calories you earned. This woman I know thought she could eat 1500 extra calories because she "burned" them with exercise LOLOL No such luck lady!!!

I love my fitbit one too!!!! When I wear it, I really make a conscious effort in moving more. I also have the scales from fitbit, they are great too! Everything is automatically updated and synchronised with both my fitbit and my [http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ma...one-apps.html] account.

As for allergy, the fitbit one is made mostly out of plastic, and you get a sillicone coated type of holder/clip and a neoprene wrist band so it shouldn't cause any problems, SlowSure!

Okay...I am convinced. I have just gone to amazon and bought the Fitbit One (I bought the burgundy one--it was $21 cheaper than the black one.) I have been wanting something to count steps and this sounds like a great one. I am anxious to see "how" I sleep at night (I don't think I sleep well and maybe this will prove it lol.) I plan to start a walking program next week, so this will be a perfect way to get myself motivated to do it and to track my progress! Thanks Carly for sharing.

I left for work this morning without clipping on my Fitbit. I was so mad! At work I can get around 10,000 on a busy day. It's going to look like I was a slug all day!

OK, in the UK, the prices run to approx. $130+ for a wireless Fitbit One activity and sleep tracker - is that the one people are using?

Fitbit Flex is similarly priced and has a wristband? Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Tracker & Sleep Wristband

It's not clear how showerproof the wristband/tracker is. I'm thinking about when I'm kayaking - we can get quite wet, even if we don't have to perform a rescue and go into the water.

I must read further. *intrigued* *gadget hound*

The fitbit one comes with a wrist band to use when you sleep. I only woke up 7x last night and only walked around 3x.

I have the previous model, equivalent to the FitBit Flex and it's not waterproof as far as i know, although DD managed to put hers through the washing machine, still clipped to her bra and after drying out thoroughly it still works. I think it would probably not be a good idea when kayaking...

The FitBit One is water resistant, but I think that means sweat and the occasional drop. I would definitely wear it when doing kayaking type sports, but protected in some kind of waterproof pocket or bag.

That is what I was thinking. If you have a pouch or something you wear around your neck that holds money or other valuables that is water resistant you could put it in there. I would think it would still work, but not positive of course. A good zip lock bag may keep it dry enough.

I just happened to see another option called UP by Jawbone that is in bracelet form (solves Cindy's problem ) and appears to be waterproof. Anyone know anything about it?

p.s. I like the feature it has where it alerts you when you haven't moved in awhile.

I still love, love, love my fitbit one. It definitely motivates me to work out, take hat stairs and be more active. I love to see how much I walked around at night.

I did a quick look on Amazon and read reviews - do you find that when you move in a vehicle that the fitbit counts it as steps? I saw a few reviewers who mentioned this. Thanks.

I think both the Fitbit and the Jawbone UP sound great ... this thread convinced me to order one of these things, and I saw a used, in very good condition Jawbone UP on Amazon at a greatly reduced price, so I ordered it and it will be here Thursday! I'm interested in the sleep info as well, but I definitely like the idea of reminding myself to move around throughout the day.
