5. Fitbit (I have the Flex)
I never really wanted a Fitbit before. My MIL had one and so did plenty of my friends, but it just didn’t appeal to me. Well fast forward to 2015 and I’m really working on my health and trying to make myself more aware of my exercise and food habits. The Fitbit was something my Dr actually suggested. Just to make me more aware of how many steps I’m taking daily and to give myself a goal. So I purchased one (The Flex) and I’ve been using it for about 2 or 3 weeks now. I liked it so much I bought my husband one. It’s been great at showing me when I’m not really walking as much as I should be and I can keep track of my sleep (or lack there of), food and water consumption. It also keeps track of my Active Minutes when I’m working out. We also purchased the Scale that they make, the Aria. It automatically knows who I am when I step on the scale and it takes my weight and my body fat percentage. All of that information is then uploaded to my Fitbit Profile and I can monitor it. I’ve been really happy with the Fitbit and have been taking part in Challenges with my husband and MIL. It’s fun to push yourself! Do you have a Fitbit? Also I should note, I got the Flex Model because I didn’t feel that I’d need any of the extras on the other models. However, thinking about it now, I wish I would have gotten one that did have a clock on it because wearing the Fitbit and a watch isn’t fun. HA!
