Talk to me about Fitbit Flex!



Recommended Posts

I really want to get a fitbit. Been looking on Amazon and I don't know which one to get. The flex got so so reviews vs. One and zip. Anyone have those? Which one do you recommend? Please let me know. Thnks

I think a good starting point is to compare what all myfitnesspal will sync with. I know they work with a lot of different brands. I researched and debated for a couple of months. One down side to the bracelets is that they are not that pretty to wear to a wedding or other dress up event. Sometimes I wish I got the kind that will clip onto my bra. But I love my display and the constant reminder on my wrist to move.

I saw on FB the other day an ad for a new one that would be a magnetic clasp (pretty button thing on the front of your shirt, device on the back) and it would also help remind you not to slouch. But I'm not sure if I'd always remember to put that on.

Need to determine if you want it Water proof. Not that I swim or shower with it but I liked the flexibility. I wore my fitbit when I was washing my car the other day.

Kim you also have the flex? I won't wear it in the shower for sure and not sure about swimming. But am worries if I am washing my hands and if the water splashes on the flex...I think I am going to invest my money and get it. Cause I walk a lot...esp out here in NYC area and I don't own a car. So this will at least give me and idea about my steps plus I want to start hitting the gym in June. Thnks for the info!

I actually have the fitbit force (which was recalled). I like the display too much and the stairs feature to have given it back. Shhh. Lol.

I wash my hands with it on, wear it while doing dishes or laundry, wear it in the rain (I park pretty far out and it rains a lot in Florida). I don't worry about it getting wet but I try not to submerge it.

Thnks so much for the info. Where in Florida are you? I grew up in Coral Springs near Boca Raton where my parents still reside. So I plan to relocate in the next couple of yrs to be close to them. Good to know that the fitbit is ok in the Water. What color do you have? It recommend?

I loved my fitbit. Unfortunately so did my dog. She chewed it beyond repair. Luckily the company is going to send me a new one free of charge. Such great customer service. Jus waiting for it to arrive. Yahoo.

I have a flex, two actually. Can't get either to hold a charge. I do not use any of the battery draining features like silent alarm. Would not buy again.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
