    I would recommend this to anyone that absolutely cannot find the time to exercise, this counts steps walked, calories burned and much more. Being able to see this makes me move around alot more!! I've lost 5lbs without even trying.

    My Little Fitbit

    One of the two things I make sure I wear everyday. I always try to get 10,000 steps a day. It's great paired with my iPhone. If only it also tracks sleep, that would be the best. But overall it was a great buy!

    Have used this tracker now for about two weeks and just having it on my hip makes me want to take more steps to meet the daily goal so it is working.

    Perfect for my Technophobe Husband!

    Posted .

    My husband comes home from work every night complaining that he's the only one that gets out of his chair and does anything: "I must have walk 2 miles today!". So, I made a mental note: Perfect for Father's Day! Before that, I heard quotes like: I am NOT wearing any of that stuff on my wrist! And, I don't need any of that technology! This thing is tiny - a little bigger than a quarter! The pictures online don't do it justice. I was shocked when I picked it up (I did in store pickup - Love that!). When he saw the belt clip, his eyes lit up - but still skeptical! On the first day, he just shoved it in his pocket and left for work. When he came home, he checked it - he had walked over 6 miles and burned over a day's worth of calories. Now he checks it every day (to validate how hard his day was) and now competes online with my college grad sports coach daughter who is losing miserably. I could never have imagined that this would even be possible! Great tool for anyone!

    Fantastic, easy-to-use activity tracker!

    Posted .

    I purchased the Fitbit Zip as a birthday gift for my mom, who just so happens to have recently gotten back into the habit of going for a daily walk. She had tried some cheaper activity trackers prior to this one and even bought a Garmin (which she sent back). However, nothing she tried had the right combination of ease-of-use and features that she was looking for. Until now. The Zip is an all-day tracker that logs your steps, distance, calories burned, and total active minutes. It features wireless syncing, an easy-to-understand touch screen that displays data when you tap it, long battery life, and it clips to your belt or pocket easily. Or, if you're like my mom, you can toss into your pocket and just forget about it. So, does she like it? You bet. She loves how easy it is to use, how light it is, and the fact that she doesn't have to worry about resetting it every day. The Fitbit Zip might be the cheapest tracker of the bunch, and it might not have all the bells and whistles of its higher end siblings, but it's more than adequate for your average user. Highly recommended.

    Works Great!

    Well, my friends have talked me into keeping a fitbit on me to track my daily walking/activity. Well, first thing you will notice is that this thing will hurt your feelings. Everyone says a normal active person should be taking 10,000 steps a day - well after a day with just 2000 steps - you realized it is either going to become your new best friend or a specter that will haunt your days. I decided to befriend the little demon and now I am getting over 10000 steps a day on average. Side effects include weight loss, better sleep and more energy. Also, when you convince your other friends to get one and start using the fitbit app on your smartphone - it becomes a tool for taunting and bragging to all the other people you know who think 2000 steps a day is a lot! The device itself is extremely simple and easy to use. The Android app can be at times. You use your smartphone bluetooth connection to sync/track your steps - creating a daily activity log. With this app you also can make friends (social media aspect and bragging tools!) along with setting challenges and completing goals. It is all about fortune and glory - so get one and get walking! PS: I washed mine by accident once - still works fine - so it is really sturdy!

    Great device, but USE A TETHER!

    |
    Posted .

    I really like the device, but I should have figured out a way to tether it. Especially after I realized that it came loose from my belt on a somewhat regular basis. Yesterday, I discovered that it was gone. Must have dropped off when I was getting out of my car. Anyway. The software is easy, and the device itself is ingenious. It tracks number of steps taken, as well as distance and calories burned. You get a little face that shows how you're doing. It sticks its tongue out if you've been inactive, a simple smile if you're doing pretty well, and big grin if you're doing great. You can wear it clipped to your pocket, or your pants (front or back work) or at the front of your bra (for the ladies). It comes with a dongle for syncing with your computer and once the software is installed, your laptop will prompt you to sync up the fitbit. The dashboard shows a graph of how active you were during each day. You can upgrade the basic service for more involved tracking and fitness management. I'm on my way to pick up a replacement. Maybe I should have gotten the two pack.

    Good solid activity tracker

    |
    Posted .

    Every review, everything I've read about the Zip is accurate. It works well and gives you a basic level of activity for the day. Since I have a bum leg from a car accident, my stride is a bit shorter than what Fitbit thinks it should be. So, as soon as I purchased the Zip I set it to the actual length of my average stride. I've read numerous reviews where the people say they've lost their device. I guess if you aren't using the neoprene case (which has a belt clip on it), I can see you may lose it. But the clip on that case is very tight, in fact I have a bit of a time getting it clipped to my pocket. As a precaution I clip it on my pocket with the Zip on the inside, but I can't imagine this thing coming off a belt, waistband, etc. The only reason I've rated this at 4 stars instead of 5 is the difficulty syncing the Zip. If I navigate my laptop to the Fitbit dashboard, the Zip syncs very quickly, without having to 'wake' the device. The app for iPhone/iPad seems to sync fairly fast, however it prompts you to tap the Zip to wake it up, and once you do that it syncs within a few seconds. The first app I installed was for the Android, and that app doesn't prompt you to 'wake' the Zip. In fact, you wouldn't expect you would have to 'wake' the unit since it's bluetooth connection is always on and the manual tells you it automatically syncs whenever it's within close range to a device you have setup to sync with the Zip. And even after tapping the Zip to wake it, the Android app takes a long time to sync, many times reporting it can't find your device. OK, so I realize I've reduced my rating of this device because of a third party app, but it seems that bluetooth syncing has been an issue with many users. So if you're syncing only with an Android device, expect it to be slow compared to what we've come to expect from devices. If you're using an Apple device or syncing via the online dashboard you will likely experience very satisfactory response.

    Accurate and convenient

    I purchased this pack for my wife and I. She has an android phone and I have an iphone. The only bad thing for her is that she can't sync hers to her account on the fly. She has to be near her laptop with the USB adapter attached for it to sync. The fitbit app will not sync with android phones. On the other hand the experience with my phone is fantastic. The app is fun and easy to use and all i have to do is "wake" my fitbit up and open the app on my phone... all synced up. It's a lot more fun when you add friends to your fitbit account and start competing for how many steps and distance traveled! I even find myself purposely taking longer ways and walking more because I am either near my goal or I want to beat someone else with the daily/weekly step count. Great product!

    Got me off the couch!

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this fitbit because I have 20+ pounds to lose, and I sit at my job all day, and then when I get home I'm not motivated to do much except sit some more. I had my doubts this would work, but I bought it anyway. Well, it's super easy to set up, which is a huge plus for me, and super easy to wear. On the days I wear it, it's like a mini-contest with myself to get my 10,000 steps a day in. And surprise, it's working to get me off the couch! I take walks, I go upstairs, I move around during the commercials, all to get my extra steps in. I'm glad I bought this little gadget! Also, I've dropped it on the hard floor about 5 times so far, and it hasn't broken yet, so it can take a beating.

    I wanted a Fitbit to help motivate me to walk more (I sit a lot at the computer during the day) and researched each type of Fitbit before deciding on this one. I decided that I really didn't need to track my sleep and that this one would work for what I needed. I also didn't want to wear it on my wrist each day or wear it to bed. Plus I wasn't sure if I really wanted to spend $100 on something like this, so those are the reasons I went with this one. I initially thought I'd wear it on my hip or in my pocket, but surprisingly, it works really well on my bra and is not even noticeable most of the time. (I think this would vary on the type of shirts you wear and your bra size/style.) The clip is very tight and I have no worries about it staying on my bra. It seems more secure there than perhaps on my hip or somewhere else. I rarely look at the screen and use the iphone app to check it throughout the day. Sometimes I check it the website as well and both work great and have all the information I need. I haven't started tracking food or water intake yet, but might in the future. It defaults to 10,000 steps a day as your goal, but I would recommend starting it out a lower goal (I chose 6000) and work your way up. I've been using it about a month and on a really good day, I get about 8000, but plan to increase my daily walks soon (once the the summer heat wears off!). Best Buy shipping was quick too!

    Small size, great stats compared to others

    |
    Posted .

    I've owned two other pedometers in the past which were priced significantly lower than this one so it was hard for me to justify spending 50 dollars on a pedometer...but then I started using it.... Having your stats available so you can see your progress through history, in addition to having a community available online really motivates me to keep moving! Sadly (before wearing the zip) on days that I worked from home I could easily say there is no way I'd hit anywhere near 10K steps in a day, but seeing my calorie burn, total steps, etc just motivates me to get out and get some steps in! I like the zip because it's smaller than the average pedometer, it takes a regular battery (I don't like rechargeable because I would inevitably forget to charge it), and isn't complicated to setup/use!

    Questionable Accuracy

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this product to monitor how much I walk during my work day. Even though it is a large facility, I find it hard to believe that I walk 2.5 to 3.5 miles per day on foot. There are also several flights of stairs that I traverse during a normal day that have not registered in the 2 weeks that I have been testing the unit. To insure that carrying location was not causing the discrepancy, I carried it in my pants pocket and clipped to my shirt collar. Both positions produced the same results. On the good side, the software is easy to use and it is very painless to sync. Even with the case and clip, the Zip is small enough to comfortably fit in a front jeans pocket.

    Received this as a gift and I love it! This is basically, a high tech pedometer and is the best pedometer ever! I don't like the idea of wearing a fit bit bracelet and I don't care about the sleep tracking the bracelet provide...I would not like wearing something on my wrist overnight anyway. This small Fitbit pedometer clips to my belt and is out of sight, out of mind. It tracks steps, mileage, and calories. It connects to my phone and to my computer (using the included USB dongle) via Bluetooth. I get a weekly fitness report. This thing is really accurate as well. I have tracked mileage with my phone GPS using a running app and the Fitbit is always spot on whether two miles or ten miles! I love this thing and highly recommend!

    3rd FITBIT ZIP for me

    |
    Posted .

    My first FITBIT worked great! I wear it all day, everyday. Properly counted steps, uploaded my data correctly, and I had no complaints for about a year and a half, then it just stopped working completely. So, I went and purchased another one because I love it so much. Well, that one was horrible. When you tapped the front display, sometimes it would work, sometimes, wouldn't come on at all. It would not sync properly, and somendays, the step count would randomly reset during the day. Very aggravating. Even replaced battery twice, but same problems. After a couple of months, I gave up and bought a different brand of pedometer. (Worse - but, I won't go into that ). I went and bought another FITBIT ZIP, and it works great, just like the first one did! I don't know what happened with my second ZIP, but I am happy with this one. Counts steps correctly and no trouble uploading/syncing info ...

    Fitbit Zip

    |
    Posted .

    This is my 4th or 5th Fitbit purchase. I love Fitbit but have a terrible problem with losing them. They come loose and fall off of my clothing. However, the Zip seems to have a stronger hold than my old Fitbit. My only complaint is that a couple of time the Zip has actually come out of the clip holder and fallen to the ground. Thankfully I heard it hit and did not lose it. I think I am going to have to purchase another clip holder and my Zip is only a couple months old. I do love this device tho and will buy another one if I lose this one!

    Excellent way to track walking, and tiny.

    Posted .

    I have been using several different types of trackers and this is the most reliable and easy to use. Most recently I used a nano with fair results until it started counting paces several times and then losing actual steps I took. I also had to chart daily results myself since I couldn't get the program through iTunes to work. The nano was also larger then the FitBit. However, it has music, radio and a light, which was all good (and means I still carry it. FitBit is so easy to do a walk and just be within 20 feet of my computer to get everything recorded. No light, but I am usually where I can see the numbers. It also knows we women will us a bra as a holder so yu don't need to keep it at your waist for best results like you do with a nano.

    I've used my FitBit for about a year. I really like being able to track my exercise especially my walking. I sync to the web and have a history of my performance ( or not, when I'm lazy). i have linked up with my kids and we track each others weekly walking. This motivates us to walk further or not slack off. I've had to replace the battery once and the task was easy. I purchased this FitBit because I left my original one at home while traveling. My husband will start using this one when we return home. I guess we'll complete against each other then.

    The Zip Wins over the One

    |
    Posted .

    I received a Fitbit One as a gift. It worked well and I would recommend it - but it had to be charged from time to time. The USB charging cord that it came with was specifically designed for the One - nothing else works. It was a nuisance because it either wasn't with me when I needed to charge it or I had to look for it. Finally it was misplaced altogether so I needed a new one. Stores that sell the Fitbit don't sell the charging cord so you have to order it online. The cost: $20. The Zip uses a 3 volt CR 2032 battery that can be found anywhere. So far it has lasted for two months. The Zip doesn't count stairs like the One, but I don't find that to be a limitation. I prefer the extended battery life of the Zip and knowing that I can easily find a replacement battery whereever I am. Also, the Zip is less expensive than the One. $50 less. That buys a lot of batteries.
