That's right my friends! I am giving away a Fitbit One. YAY!!
Here's what happened. I received a complimentary Fitbit One from Weight Watchers last year. In June, I forgot to take it off before my Sprint Triathlon and it died.
Fun Fact: The Fitbit One is NOT waterproof.
Sooo yeah I had to say goodbye to my Fitbit. Now Fitbit has amazing customer service and they replaced my dead Fitbit One - even though it was my fault.
BUT when I came home one day there was not one, but TWO Fitbits. Hollah!
Before we get to the giveaway, here's a little more about the FItbit One:
As you can see this has a little clip. I wear mine on my bra strap, but you can also wear it on your belt or in your pocket.
Fitbit gives this little snipped about the One:
If you want to turn fitness into a lifestyle, the One™ is for you. For starters, it never rests. During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. Come nightfall, it measures your sleep quality, helps you learn how to sleep better, and wakes you in the morning. The One™ motivates you to reach your goals by bringing greater fitness into your life – seamlessly, socially, 24 hours a day.
The Fitbit One was $99.95 with a free website and a free smartphone app. The device syncs wirelessly as well.
I do love that with a touch of that tiny button I can see how many steps I've taken, stairs climbed and distance (in miles) traveled.
You can tweak the displays to fit the information YOU want, which I like. You can also look at calories burned if you want. As well as a little flower. The flower goes as you hit your daily goals (which you set for yourself).
Like for me, I am trying to get at least 10k steps per day. Maybe some time down the road I will up that. Only time will tell.
Additionally you can wear it while you sleep and track your sleep patterns. I haven't really delved into this option too much yet, but I definitely plan on it.
The One™ doesn’t nap, even when you do. Slip it into your wrist band at night, and it’ll measure your sleep quality. Once the data syncs, graphs on your dashboard will reveal how long you slept and the number of times you woke up, giving you a sleep quality score. Over time, you can apply what you learn to help you sleep more soundly. The One™ also has a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time, without disturbing your partner.
Besides having a free website you can access on your computer there is also a Fitbit app for your smart phone. Here is some of the data I pulled off my iPhone.
You can customize the dashboard to fit that stats you want to see. Again I love the personalization.
But the thing I love the most about the Fitbit? The competition with friends. Okay the support - and competition - with friends. ;)
You can friend people on the site - other people you know with a Fitbit - and compare your stats. Now I am a competitive person by nature (a shock to all of you I know ;)) so this really motivates me to move.
But you can also cheer on your friends when they hit milestones, etc. It is a great community on there. The site also offers "badges" when you hit certain milestones as well.
You can also set reminders on the Fitbit as well. If you want to use it as an alarm clock in the morning you can do that. There are certain Fitbits that will also allow you to set hourly reminders, which could help you remember to get up and move during the day at work/drink water or whatever you need help remembering.
Additionally, you can log your food, water, workouts and weight using the online tools. Obviously since I do Weight Watchers I haven't tracked my food in the app since I am already doing that somewhere else. But I like that it tracks water since many folks need help in that area.
You can also sync your Fitbit up to such apps as Runkeeper, MyFitnessPal, Lose It and more.
