I got my Fitbit in the mail and I started to use it. I am ready to review it so far and let you know what I think about having one.
First, I was really put off by how much they cost. Yeah, they were very pretty and stylish and it seemed like all the cool people had one around where I live. In fact, they are so popular here in my area that they were out of stock and I had to order mine Online. After wearing it for a few weeks and using it. I have found it well worth the money. At worse, you are going to end up with a very nice watch. It is comfortable and fun to look at the time because all you have to do is move your arm and the time comes up on the little screen.
Second, you don't have to be into tech to enjoy it. I know tech somewhat but I also get intimidated by it. Reading the face of this and seeing my number of steps, and miles really amazes me, Responding to the movement alerts is another of the features that I have used so far. Both are invaluable.
Third, this thing is compelling me to work out. I started with walking and I got a record of what amount of steps was too far for me because the next day I hurt. I was so excited when I figured out that I can walk around the house and it counts. I had it on when I was trying to start doing aerobics again and I was happy too find out that it counted as steps and miles as well,. I would have never had that information any other way, I believe.
Fourth, it is very easy to wear. I wore it one day and got caught walking in a thunderstorm without an umbrella and it was water resistant enough to survive it without a problem meaning if it rains it is easy because it can get wet. It feels great and is so small that it doesn't get in the way. It also never gets caught on things..
Fifth, I really ended up loving the thing and can't live without it and I am wearing all the time and truly enjoying myself.
Sixth, I know that as I wear it and use more of the features that I will like it even more.
Seventh, it is really helping to get me in shape. I have lost a few pounds. My stomach and thighs seem smaller and I feel like my muscles are getting harder already, This is just after a few weeks.
