#MicroblogMonday – fitbit noob

I’m going completely off topic today. My dad is in town visiting, and he gave me a fitbit. I don’t now if that’s his way of telling me I’ve gotten fat, or he just thinks it’s a cool gadget. I’ll pretend it’s the latter.Microblog_Mondays

I’ve heard of fitbit and Nike FuelBand before, but I’ve never researched it obsessively like I have with the iPhone, and infertility (obvs), so I don’t know what to make of it. I’ve set it up, and downloaded the app. It took me about 5 minutes to get it into sleep mode. The band itself is just so ugly though.

Do you use one of these tracker things? What do you think?

  1. I don’t have one. My husband almost took a job with a company that made one just like that, but not the fitbit. I think your dad is just way cool and think that it’d be cool to give you one. 🙂


  2. I actually just bought one (Fitbit One, ithat’s not the wristband, but one to clip on your clothes) rather on a whim little over a week ago and it’s been a great purchase. It does help me get motivated to be a bit more active in my every day life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator and such.


    • I did find myself thinking about how many stairs I walked up this morning. I don’t know how much it’ll motivate me to walk more though. I do like that it tracks my sleep. It said I have a 96% sleep efficiency last night, but I felt so restless. I’m interested to see what happens tonight.


  3. I had the one that buckled to your pants and I used it for a year….The band is better because if you are anything me you will wash the one that buckles to your pants….Trust me, they dont like to be washed.


  4. I don’t have a fitbit, though everyone I know who has one loves it. It does sound cool to be able to download all your exercise, sleep hours, etc from your day and see how everything breaks down on paper. Well, on a computer screen. But you know what I mean.
