I love my FitBit Flex. It has helped me move more, and even though sometimes it is not accurate, I still enjoy having it. It is better to have something that cuts your distance down making you think you did less, than have something that over-approximates and makes you think you did more. But one of the questions I have got a lot is "Why isn't there a step tracker that looks pretty and has a display?". FitBit is fixing that with the FitBit Force!
The FitBit Force, just like the Flex, tracks your steps, distance, stairs climbed, calories, and the quality of your sleep. So what's different? Instead of the dots that the Flex and most step-trackers have showing the progress towards your daily goal, the Force has an LED display that shows the details - actual steps you've taken, distance, calories, etc. So you can see all the information right on your wristband. In addition, you can also set it to notify you of incoming calls.
I'm so so excited about this device, and I can't wait to get it. You can pre-order the Force for about $129.95 on www.fitbit.com or on Amazon starting today. However, you will not receive your product until it officially comes out about 4 weeks from now.
Cheers Eights & Weights!
