I’ve been a huge supporter of Fitbit for a long time now. When my company issued the devices back in November of last year, I wasn’t familiar with the technology… and wasn’t even sure I’d wear the thing.
See… in November, I was pretty sedentary still. I had no idea how many steps I was taking a day and didn’t really have any intention of walking anything extra. And then, I began wearing this guy.
Looking down and seeing that I hadn’t cleared 5,000 steps for the day was VERY eye opening, and when you see that your flower indicator shows that the flower is dying… it’s motivating. Needless to say, this Fitbit helped me get moving. I have my previous company to thank for the introduction, and Fitbit to thank for creating a device that is so easy to use and so incredibly eye-opening!
What is a FitBit Ultra?
FitBit Ultra is a fantastic fitness tracker that tracks so much more than just your steps. It has a super-sensitive 3-D motion sensor that tracks your exact steps taken, calories burned, and distance traveled. It’s recently been upgraded to include an altimeter that also calculates the number of stairs you climb on a given day.
How Big is It?
This is something I love about the FitBit. I’m not looking to advertise my diet on my arm, but I’ll tuck it away on my waistband.
From the FitBit website: Unlike bulky, awkward devices that all but scream, “Look at me, I’m on a diet,” the Fitbit Tracker is light and small enough to wear all day without anyone knowing. In fact, it’s the smallest fitness tracker out there. Tuck it in your pocket, or clip it to your belt or bra, and you’re set.
Also super-helpful for me, the FitBit uploads the steps I take automatically to my Fitbit profile where I can view my steps and view my progress. You can also link up with your friends and “share” your steps as a team. In addition, you can link your account to MyFitnessPal and several other sites for food tracking/activity tracking. FitBit also has an iPhone app for all you iPhone lovers.
