My family has decided to have our own personal Biggest Loser Challenge which I am certainly participating in. The winner will receive $600 at the end of our 6 month challenge. I have been doing what I can, admittedly not enough as per usual, to get on track and beat some of my beloved family members. I recently noticed one of my aunts and uncles with Fitbit band and realized I have been seeing this for a while unknowingly. Now I see it everywhere and wonder if it is a better system of tracking than my phone.
I decided to do some research on Fitbit wristband I’ve been seeing:
-Accurately track all-day stats like steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed, and active minutes
-See daily stats, time of day, and exercise mode with a bright OLED display
-Monitor your sleep automatically and wake with a silent alarm
-Get call notifications right on your wrist
-Access real-time run stats like time, distance, and pace to stay on track
-Sync stats wirelessly and automatically to your computer and over 120 leading smartphones
This particular one has gotten some amazing reviews but I can’t help but wonder if it is the new trend in tracking. Should I spend $100 and change on it or wait to see what the next trend is?
I really do like the fact that the bracelet can be much more accurate than keeping your phone on you all day which is sometimes as impossible as it is annoying. That being said is a cheap old pedometer the way to go and I can just enter that information in to my various apps or should I suck it up, spend the money and just see how it goes?
