littlegraykitten:  Ugh, I adore the Tory Burch bands (the leather wrap ones are so pretty!) but I can’t afford or justify one when I work outside and it would just get covered in mud or wrecked.

I have a One and my husbands Flex, which he has stopped wearing because his work was giving him really really off readings. He works with machinery that vibrates a lot.  

Depending on what I’m doing, my One gives me really off readings too, but I just log those blocks of time as ‘driving’ in the Fitbit app on my phone and it removes the steps.  I use a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor for workouts though, and when it or my Fitbit kicks the bucket, I’m probably going to switch to a Polar A300.  It tracks steps, sleep, and can sync with a chest strap for workouts, and it’s a watch. 

I love the idea of the Charge HR and I don’t hate the look of it, but I don’t know if I would trust the heart rate part…

I know you’re asking about Fitbit, but I love my Garmin Forerunner 15. It’s got a clock, step counter and GPS tracker.  Their free web site that aggregates your metrics is pretty neat, too.  I’m a distance runner so my Garmin is perfect for counting my miles and I also enjoy the step counting and calorie counting features.  It is a little bulky compared to a normal watch, but it is built to last.

I have the fitbit One. I wear bracelets and knew the other ones would bother me. I wear my one on my bra

I have the Charge HR and I really enjoy it. Unless you are tiny though, don’t get the small. I wear children’s sized gloves and have very small hands and wrists. The small BARELY fits me.

I just have a Zip. I love not having to wear it on my wrist or worry about charging it.

I had a flex for about a year. Mine were always messed up and it would not give credit for all my steps – Fiance and I went on a 10 mile hike, he hit his goal (16,000) and I was not even at 10,000 and I had 2,000 more steps than he did when we started. It drove me crazy.

Now I have a one – it’s so much better. I dont have to wear some ugly plastic thing on my wrist and it has been way more accurate.

MrsCallalily:  Flex!  I have a smaller wrist and the charge just is too big for my liking.  Also, I love wearing watches and don’t need another thing with the time on my wrist.  The charge HR has a nice heart rate monitor feature, but so do my sports watch. 

I’ve found that the flex does everything I need it to with the exception of count stair flights or elevation.  However, for the price, I don’t think I’d be comfortable paying much more than flex price for what amounts to basically a bluetooth enabled pedometer.

(but if you want the charge or charge hr, there’s some awesome black friday kohls deals coming later this week!)

I have the One. I don’t like wearing things on my wrist. Also, the ones you wear on your wrists will pick folding laundry/doing hair. That I don’t like. I want just my steps.

I have had the Zip twice, the Charge twice, and I finally setteled on the One. The ones worn on the wrist didn’t pick up my steps when I was pushing a cart or if I held my purse on that arm.  The Zip had a battery that you need a key for to open the back. I lost it.

I have the One. I like it because it’s subtle and I can wear it hidden in my bra even if I’m at a dressy event. It’s also pretty sturdy since I’ve accidentally ran it through the washer/dryer it at least 5 times and it still works!

I have a fitbit Charge and it’s pretty awesome! It doesn’t have the heart monitor that the HR has, but it has nearly all the same functionality.

I’ve had it for a week, hasn’t fallen off once, is pretty comfortable to wear and I like being able to look down and see my progress 🙂

The only thing I wish I understood is WHY is it important for my to know my sleeping habits? It’s not like Fitbit is offering any advice on how to get better sleep or a different sleep pattern.

I have a Flex, but I havent been using it- Several times now it has randomly deleted all of my data for certain periods of time, mostly when I am out of cell service. For example when camping/hinking, it will show me on the display that I have exceeded my goal (5 dots) but once I get it to sync, suddenly there are no steps and the display resets back to zero (1 flashing dot) every time it has happened I have contacted customer service and they are like, “Oh, well it’s syncing now, so don’t worry about it!”

That and the fact that 2 of my bands broke under normal use just kind of put me off.

I have the one and love it. I wear it all the time and love how much it motivates me. I love that I can hide it
