Fitbit.jpgHave owned a Fitbit Charge model for about a year now.  The main reason I bought one was to track my sleep.  I get very poor sleep most of the time.  On average according the the tracker.  I wakeup/restless 40 times over a six hour period.  Know its not going to be one hundred percent accurate.  But a good guide.  Took this information to the doctor.  She said that’s not good.  Have to go get tested for sleep apnea.

Over all I like this device.  The tracking of sleep is cool.  It is all so nice see how many steps I take at work.  The only problem I have with it is.  It’s falling a part.  The strap on both sides has cracked off from the computer part.  Now the rest of the plastic/rubber bits are cracked or separated.  It still works fine.  Will keep using it until it breaks.  Think the newer models would hold up much better.

Fitbit Charge Review

Fitbit.jpgHave had my Fitbit Charge for over a month now.  So think it is time for a review.  The main reason I bought one was to track my sleep.  Have worn it every night.  Know it’s not going to be a hundred present accurate but a good guild.  On average get about six hours of sleep and wake up about 30 times a night.  Not sure if that is bad or normal.  Plan to see a doctor soon.

As for the device it’s self is very well build.  The material is very light.  After wearing it for a while you don’t even feel it.  It is very simple to use.  There is only one button on the side.  You set option and what not though the website.  You can use a smart phone with Bluetooth or you can use a computer.  It come with a a USB dongle.  Once you install the program.  The USB syncs with the Fitbit.  Then a webpage opens.  That is were you can set options for the device its self.  All so set up diet and exercise stuff.

Over all am very impressed it.  Wear it to work every shift, wear to bed every night and have not had any problems with it.  The battery is impressive as well.  Can get over a week on one charge.  The battery charging doesn’t take long, about two hours.  If you are looking into getting one of these fitness trackers this is a great model to buy.

Fitbit.jpgA few post back talked about getting a Fitbit.   Was thinking about getting the Flex model.  I write these days before posting them.  The day I posted that one, the new flyers were out and seen that they had the Charge model on sale.   This is the next model up from the Flex with more features.  Being on sale it was cheaper than the Flex.  So decided to buy that one.  The the feature I am looking to trying out the most is the sleep tracking.  About to set it up now.  Will be back with an update.

[Update]  Have worn it for a few days now.  It is very light on the arm and comfortable.  The screen is nice and bright.  Easy to read.  I know it will not be a 100% accurate with all the things it keeps track of.  It is still a very good guide.  The sleep tracking is very interesting.  It tells you how many times you woke up or were restless.  So for on average I wake up about ten times during six hours of sleep.  This can’t be good.  So I am going to keep track for a few weeks and then go to the doctors.  So far am liking the this Fitbit.  Worth the money.
