As of yesterday, Jawbone Up works with MyFitnessPal, in case anyone was still basing their decision on this.

I preordered a long time ago through Amazon. When I ordered the drop date was 5/1. However, I received an email saying that it had been changed to 5/15. It still shows that as a ship date. However, Amazon now shows it as out of stock... I am hoping there aren't problems that are causing the delays.

I'm guessing it's out of stock because the quantity available as pre-orders have been spoken for. That's typically what happens with the Kindles, anyhow. :)

I got an email today from FitBit saying that it's now shipping... I haven't heard anything from Amazon yet, but I guess it's now available.

I'm annoyed that they're available at BestBuy and that some people have already received theirs from Amazon... I pre-ordered (and paid) in March and am showing an expected date of May 17th. I guess this item is a lot more popular than I thought. I had figured that by pre-ordering/paying in March I'd receive it the instant it was finally released.

I sure hope it turns out to be worth the wait.

I decided to cancel my Amazon order and I'm going later this week to get it at best buy

Eric,

Did you wind up getting one at Best Buy? If so, what are your thoughts? Amazon now says that mine is 'preparing to ship' and I should get it by Friday... hmmmm

I've been using the FitBit Flex since late May and really couldn't be happier. Well, I guess I could be -- they just released a newer version that has a watch on it -- that's a small complaint though...

I really like it and love how it jives with My Fitness Pal -- the two apps sync up and work really well, in my opinion.

So what did everyone get? Reviews? Opinions?

I have several if these gadgets.

Fitbit. LOVE. I use it every single day since I purchased. I can put it in my pocket, attach to undergarments, etc. ease of use is amazing. Syncing I have never had a problem with, through the app, plugging in to laptop, none at all. Accuracy is spot on. Battery life is well over 2 weeks.

Bodybugg. Liked it. Still have. Don't want to pay a monthly fee. Don't like wearing the band on my arm. Problems syncing with app, help(less) desk is a chore and not very knowledgeable associates. Too many questions with on my arm.

Nike fuelband. Still have. Used a couple of times. Back in box. I am a hairstylist so having to take it off and on because its not Water resistant is annoying. Accurate. (Steps)

Also use Polar FT60 HR Monitor when working out to get actual calories used during crossfit or weight training or cycling.

Hope this helps. :)

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
