Your fitbit will become one of your favorite products- for real!
The fitbit company offers THE BEST customer service, which is a wonderful addition to the flawlessness of the product itself. The motivation the fitbit provides has sparked so much healthy change in my life. It also survives lots of water exposure- including being dropped in toilets.. The battery life is great, and the online programs that you can sync it with provide great rewards that facilitate active lifestyles!
I love my Fitbit Ultra!
I love my Fitbit! It has been a great motivator for me to get moving. It tracks steps, stairs, calories, distance, and how active you are. It all syncs with your dashboard from the software included (and very simple to install). You can then find you friends that also use a Fitbit and use that as additional motivation because you see how many steps you each have taken and it declares a winner at the end of each week. You can also track your sleep habits and eating habits. There is also a mobile app so you can check your dashboard on the go. The only reason I didn't give this device a "5" rating is because of the sync with my computer. It should sync wirelessly anytime you are within 15 feet of your computer. This did work perfect for the first year, but now it's having a few problems. But, it's nothing I couldn't fix by just disconnecting the base, rebooting my computer, then reconnecting the base a waiting a few minutes. It is very small and clips right to my waistband of any pants I wear. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get moving to get healthy.
Set up is very easy. The web site allows you to track many different aspects of your journey to lose (or maintain) your weight. Also tracks sleep patterns which is really neat! In the part of the web site where you can enter what you have eaten it has a very extensive list of restaurant foods as well as national brands that you can choose from so that you get an accurate account of your intake.
My New Workout Buddy
The FitBit Ultra is a great motivator when used daily, especially if you work in front of a computer all day. Because the FitBit tracks your steps, stairs climbed, and general activity level, it's a great way to stay on top of your daily exercise goals -- and to motivate yourself to do better. When I wear the FitBit, I remember to get up from my desk throughout the day, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and just stay active.
The FitBit also tracks your sleep patterns, which is helpful information if you can't figure out why you are so tired! You simply put the FitBit in a special wristband, and the motion of your arm throughout the night reveals when you are tossing and turning, and when you are in a deep sleep.
Uploading your data from the FitBit to a computer is simple using a USB dongle, so you can track this information easily. It is also compatible with MyFitnessPal, which has (in my opinion) a better calorie tracker than the FitBit site.
My only complaints about the FitBit are that it seems like it would be easy to use, since you clip it to your waistband, in a pocket, or to a bra strap, and that recharging the device requires you to take it off and plug it into the computer. (I know there isn't another way to recharge devices such as this, but you can't be tracking your activity or sleep if you have your FitBit plugged into the computer.)

I don't know how I ever got along without it.
Everyone needs a fitbit. The very best item on the market. Counts steps taken, miles walked, floors climbed, and how well you sleep. I don't know how I got along without it. I highly recommend the fitbit to everyone I come in contact with. Go Buy one!!!
Absolute a great help in the healthy lifestyle you need
the product is fantastic. it will help be aware of how you sleep, how many steps in a day you take, how levels of stairs you accomplished. The best idea for anyone looking to stay healthy or get healthy. Links into My fitness pal a free website that is a free online food diary that is also great. Just simple ideas that help you become a better person.

A great way to motivate your self to get moving!
I have been using my Fitbit Ultra for a month or two now and I love it! First I love that its small and easy to carry. The best part about it is that it uploads your data wirelessly to the Fitbit website where you can track your progress either online or via the Fitbit phone app. Fitbit is a one stop shopping for weight loss. Not only can you track your steps with the Ultra, but you can keep track of your food intake and if you purchase the Aria your weight as well. Everything all in one place! They also send you a weekly email that shows your progress from the previous week. Using this device is very motivating and has really changed my life!
