I’ve told you guys before that I wear a FitBit. My company very generously issued Fitbits to anyone willing to participate in a holiday walking challenge. I didn’t even know what it was, but I signed up for the walk challenge with my friends Jaede, Crystal, and Christian.
A holiday program that would get me walking more + peer pressure from a team? PERFECT!
In case you don’t know what it is, I’ll tell you! It’s a super fancy pedometer-sized body calculator. It calculates the number of steps you take daily, the miles you walk/run, the stairs you climb, and calculates your calorie burn. It’s like the fancy Body Bug you see on Biggest Loser, but more discreet. It even will analyze your sleep, if you wear it at night. It will calculate the quality of your sleep and calculate how many times you wake up in the night! It’s awesome!
Ideally, you want to see that LCD read at least 10K steps each day… and that’s always my goal. AND… even better, the Fitbit actually syncs up with MyFitnessPal. It automatically calculates how many calories you burned and loads them into your MyFitnessPal daily diary. How GREAT is that???
So… about 3 weeks ago, I lost mine. I was sure I’d left it at that fancy hotel suite in Idaho. Traveling as I do, I’m always losing things. It’s just how it works, sadly.
But, it turned up magically on MONDAY! I was so excited to see the little guy (even if he was completely dead.) I charged it up and put it on to wear it on Monday to Salt Lake City. It was on a pair of pants I took to have altered?? Not sure how that happened… but so happy it did!
After wearing it for just a day, it died. Gasp! We had just been reunited, and it was dead. Well, I reached out to Fitbit customer service and explained what was going on… and they are replacing it for me!!! I am so excited! It was super easy to contact them and they were VERY responsive.
I’ve worked in the service business for a long time now, so I love great service when I experience it. So, do business with Fitbit! Invest in their products… they’ll stand behind its quality and take good care of you! I can’t wait to get the new Fitbit next week and get back to 10,000 steps!
