So I’ve had this a couple of days now, I had my hesitations but it’s turned out to be quite a good motivator!
If you haven’t heard of a fitbit, it’s basically a pedometer which also measures how long you sleep and how often you wake. It syncs wirelessly with your account online where you can edit your fitness goals, enter calories consumed and compete with other fitbit users. It also shows you how close you are to achieving your goal for the day, so if you need to workout a bit more to achieve the calorie deficit you want, or you are just trying to move a certain amount each day, it will let you know how close you are… or how much you have smashed it!
Next time I would probably get the more expensive model though (with the watch and a few other sexy functions).
