I’ve been bart of the FitBit crew (is that really a thing now?) for a number of years now before they were the ‘in’ thing to have. In July 2013 I bought my FitBit Zip because I wanted a way to track my exercise and I’ve never looked back since. Funnily enough, the FitBit I own is the one I never hear much about and no one seems to own, so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all.
What I love most about the Zip is that it doesn’t look like a fitness tracker. It’s small, subtle and you can clip it to your bra or jeans so no one will know you’ve got it on. If you’re looking to track your sleep, cycling or running then this FitBit won’t be for you but what it does, it does well.
This FitBit tracks your daily steps, miles you’ve walked, calories burnt and the time you’ve been active for. Personally, this is all I need so it’s ideal for me and as if you’re like me and don’t want to wear a wristband or don’t like wearing anything on your wrist then this FitBit would be perfect for you.
It comes with a CR2025 battery and keeps track of the battery percentage and when it gets low you will receive an email to let you know you need to buy a new battery soon. The battery life on the trackers is fantastic and lasts a good few months before you need to replace them.
I use my FitBit on a daily basis and sync it with my phone at night so that I can see my daily steps. I also like to take part in weekly, weekend long and daily challenges with my friends. I think fitness trackers are really interesting, they are kind of an educational tool where you can improve your fitness. I like to try and achieve my daily goal of 10,000 steps. I think they are a fantastic motivational tool and would highly recommend buying the Zip, it’s inexpensive and does the job well.
