FitBit?

Hi everyone!

I'm thinking of buying myself a fitbit they look really good and I see a lot of other people on slimming world use them too...but as I don't know much about them I was wondering if you could share some pros and cons? Are they worth the money?

Thanks

I love mine.
Ive got the Flex and you can track food, water, sleep, exercise, steps and weight.
I don't usually track food but I always use it to track my water intake, and of course sleep and steps.

I was reluctant to spend so much on it, and although I got mine on offer with Amazon, I'd still say it was worth the money.

Personally the flex is enough for me, I'm not doing any sort of intensive training or anything, so I don't need more than this one

I have the Fitbit flex and I love it. It's so motivating seeing the steps building up and you can participate in challenges against other people which is fun.

I've had mine since September 2014 and it's definitely been worth the money

Thank you! I've seen the flex and it looks really good! Then I saw the charge and that looks pretty cool too. I don't know if I can justify that amount of money for the charge though. Do you mind I I ask where you guys got yours from?

I got mine from littlewoods 😀 It's a Fitbit zip. 60 , it's pretty good but on reflection I think it's a lot to pay for a pedometer

I never thought of looking there! That is quite a lot haha! They are pretty cool little gadgets though and I suppose if you're getting the use out of it it's worth the money! X

I got my flex from Amazon just over a year ago. I think I paid 40ish.
My mum bought one just before Christmas from Tesco Direct for 40.
Look around and there are probably plenty of offers on somewhere!

I've got step tracking on my iPhone, which is good, but that relies on me having my phone with me at all times. When I'm at work I don't and it sits in my bag from 8.30-5.00 so it doesn't track any movements I make during the day. The flex sits on my wrist like a watch/bracelet and I forget it's even there. The sleep tracking is good too, which a phone can't do
