I got a Fitbit this past week, and I am real excited about using it! I won’t draw any big conclusions yet or weigh in completely on my thoughts as I have only been using it a few days. However, I thought I would share a few initial thoughts:
- I think I was overestimating my calories burned. I am still figuring this out, but I am going to see how it goes for a few weeks before I draw any conclusions.
- It has already made me aware of how active I should be on average during a day, so I think it will challenge me in a good way to be more active.
- I also like the dashboard and reports. They are very easy to view and understand, and it synchs with My Fitness Pal.
- If I continue to find it valuable, I may upgrade to the wrist version. I need to see if it is worth it first.
Those are my quick thoughts for now. More on the Fitbit after I have used it some more.
Do you keep track of your activity level and how do you measure it?
