Talk to me about Fitbit Flex!



Recommended Posts

Enjoy using my Fitbit Flex. Needs to be charged once a week even though I use silent alarms 3x a day. Just wearing it is very motivating to me. I enjoy being in competition with myself to walk just a little bit more each week.

I love my fitbit flex and find myself walking around the yard or house trying to meet my step goal before bed! Great motivator for sure. It is nice to have friends as it motivates me even a bit more!

Thanks for info , ill have to rethink my choices on those kinda devices.

I love my fitbit flex. Take it off about every 6 days to charge. Synchs with MyFitnessPal.com which I use for tracking calories. There is a design issue with the charging cradle - initially thought it was not holding charge then realized it was never charging properly. Jam some paper at the end to force contacts to touch

Have any of u tried the up24? I'm debating between the fitbit flex an up24, so any input would be great

not I. Had an Omron for 3 or 4 years then went to FitBit flex about 3 months ago. The Flex does not sense vertical movement ( steps etc ) but I don't care - would rather not have to remember to clip it on everyday

That's part of why I didn't turn in my force when it was recalled as it does sense the vertical movement. I put a bandaid over the contacts and have not had any problems. Lol

I too have the Force. Love it . Never got the nasty rash as some people did. But you have to dry it if it gets moist.. Dah..lol

I love the website too. Great feed back from my Fitbit friends. We taunt and cheer each other on daily.

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.[/quote

I had one that wouldn't charge and fitbit replaced it free of charge! They just sent me a new one!

Does anyone also have the bathroom scales ,I think called Aria that hooks up with their fitbit and if so do you like them and do they work well?

I have heard fitbit is coming out with the new force. So I am going to wait it out and then purchase it. I do love the idea of having to wear a Bracelet vs a clip on. Would love the bracelet to tell me the time also this way I don't have to worry about wearing a watch in addition to a step tracker.

I wore mine and tracked data for a year. What I found for myself was that it did not accurately record sleep at all.

I also found that it was not usually accurate for many activities. I wore it on my non-dominant hand, which is not moving as much as my right. It didn't show intense activity when I was actually doing it. It also didn't show my activity if I walked long distances holding something in my non-dominant hand which caused it to be stationary. I took it off last month and haven't put it back on again. This is not to say that it wasn't worth wearing at all. It was motivating and I got a lot out of what I learned, but after a year, I would like to see another level of tech. development.

How cool. I did not know about this scale. Want! I think I might have to get a fit bit too. All this is helpful to know.

      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.
