I am considering purchasing either the Fitbit Flex or the Up by Jawbone. Anyone have experience with either one? What are the pros and cons? Would you recommend them? Is there another brand that you like?
Thanks for any input!

@OtterHalf: I have the fitbit one and love it! I don’t know much about the flex or the jawbone, but thought I’d bump this for you in hopes that you get some better answers! 🙂

Fitbit is very nice do be warned it does over estimate calories burned in most cases.otherwise verynaccurate and a good app that lets it sync with some smart phones.

@OtterHalf: I have the Fitbit One and love it. I considered upgrading to the Flex, but decided to stick with this one for a couple of reasons. Tthe Flex doesnt count stairs climbed, and I don’t know if I will always want to wear it around my wrist. I wear my One hooked to my bra and nobody see’s it and I never really leave home without it.

Hubby and I are both getting the Fitbit Flex (as soon as they are available again; right now they are completely out of stock). We’ve considered the Fitbit One, but I know I would lose it. A bracelet is better for me and between the Flex and the Up, we both liked the features of the Flex better.

DH got us the Fitbit Ones (we got them just last week) over the Flex because the Flex doesn’t have an altimeter. It’s nice to add flights/stairs tracking, too. We also like to see how many steps we have to do to reach our goals. The Flex only gives you 5 leds to track with. Plus, the reviews for the Flex right now seem hit or miss.

I have the fit bit one and I wear it n my bra. I really don’t want to explain to people why my wristband is lighting up.

I mainly use my fitbit ultra to tell me how far I’ve gone / how many steps a day I’ve taken. I’ve checked it against maps, and it seems to be very accurate. I’ve also read other reviews that confirms it’s very accurate in this way. I also love that I can hide mine in my clothes instead of wearing it on my wrist. however, it does seem to be thrown off when I drive, which is annoying. I tend to only wear mine when I’m on a walk.
I ignore the calories part because I don’t count calories, and I worry it might be inaccurate anyway.
because of this, I wish I had opted for the fitbit zip, whichi is only $51. my ultra is more than I need, LOL!
