I just ordered a Fitbit One pedometer and sleep tracker. Any other users out there? I've never tried anything like it before, but a good friend swears by it. It has a pretty sweet Android App and it looks like a solid way to track calories in and out. Anyone else have one?

I just got the Flex and I LOOOOVVVEEE IT!!! It's the best thing ever. :D I track my food with MyFitnessPal and it shows me how many calories I need to burn to stay on track for 2lbs/week weight loss.

I am excited to start using mine, I'm glad to hear you love yours! So, you use MyFitnessPal to track your food, not the dashboard that comes with the fitbit? Would you recommend I do the same, then? I want to make sure I get the most out of this thing!

I have a fitbit one, I love it :carrot:.
I do use it for the food sometimes, but I'm on a food delivery meal plan, so right now I don't need to bother since I know the calories are always going to be around 1300-1500. As long as I see in the fitbit dashboard that I've burned my usual calories, I'm good.
When I do enter calories, it can be motivating to see the little dashboard showing if I'm in the red green or yellow zone.

You can add people as friends and compete against them in steps which I like. Right now I need to get some walking in today, they're beating me soundly. :o

I feel your pain! All my Fitbit friends are city dwellers. How do I compete against someone who logs 20K steps a day?!:o

I really want to get one. I think I will head down the Brookstone store and purchase it tomorrow. There are so many different versions. Is one better than the other?

I love the Fitbit One because it has a screen you can check as you wear it. The Flex is better looking and has a wristband but no display. They both track your sleep and they both integrate with MyFitnessPal, which is cool. But I'd say go for the One but I know people who love the Flex too.

Thanks for the advice. I am not much of a wrist band wearer, so I will get the one today. I love it that it sync's with MFP. I use that daily.

I have the flex and I completely love it! It's such a great tool and I'm getting more exercise in more than ever trying to get all my steps in.
