Is the Fitbit worth it's price tag?
Dressing with new technologies is fashionable and certainly here to stay. Smart bracelets appear everywhere as an ultramodern accessory with a very interesting and futuristic technology footprint. They give that extra incentive for those who already practice or are thinking of starting a small or large range, unplanned, exercise. One can mainly interact with notifications on mobile and tablet or the measurement of information on exercise and health. They can become very interesting accessories for many independent users needing motivation.
The concept of wearable technology is definitely here to stay and we have many indications of this. A recent report by ON World Institute predicted that 700 million sports equipment devices will be sold around the world over the next five years.
Within this segment, it is undeniable that the spotlights are centered on Fitbit. The Fitbit Flex promises to monitor their user 24 hours a day, obtaining various data such as number of steps, distance, calories burned, hours slept, and even the quality of their sleep. Clearly geared for those who like or want physical activities.
I've been a Fitbit user for some time now, and it took me some time to get the hang of its unique features. I checked on the main website and some other forums, but I learned most of what I know by experimenting with it. I've written this short guide to help the new Fitbit user.
I am not sponsored by Fitbit, nor do I receive any commission for you choosing to buy their product.
This is an honest assessment of my experience. There are some things I would change, which I'll come onto later, but overall I've been very pleased with it. I hope you in turn find some value from this guide, and make the most of this fitness tech.
Here's a preview of what this guide covers:
