Fitbit is a small, stylish, wearable health and wellness monitoring device that is able to accurately track burned calories, steps taken, distance traveled and even sleep quality.
Containing a 3D sensor like the one found in the Wii, the Fitbit is able to track motion in three dimensions converting this into information about your day-to-day activities.
Fitbit can be worn all day, in your pocket, clipped to your jeans or on your wrist to go to bed.
Aside from all the great features that I’ve mentioned, Fitbit is so intuitive that if you walk within 15 ft. of the wireless base station, data from your device will automatically (and silently) be uploaded to the Fitbit website.
The activity data collected by the Fitbit device is wirelessly and effortlessly uploaded to your profile page where you can see the information and effectively track progress toward personal goals.
On your personal profile page, you can also log nutrition, weight and other health information in order to gain a complete picture of your health.
Fitbit can be purchased online for $99 USD, visit www.fitbit.com/order.
Personal data collected by the device is free for users to access.
