I like mine, I don't put too much stock in the calories it says I burned, but it helps me stay aware of my activity levels for the day.

Default Anyone have a new Fitbit Force?

I'm trying to find out if it is worth the $129 price.

If you have one and are using it, what are you using it for and are you satisfied with it?

I like mine too & when hubby bought it for Christmas for me, I just rolled my eyes. lol. As others have said, you can sync it up with My Fitness Pal and your IPad or laptop, it tracks and it is very accurate. Have fun with it!

I had it on my wrist when I had a post op check up (knee surgery) and the doctor said "what is that?" I said "it shocks me when I eat something I shouldn't" You should have seen the look on his face. lol Then I told him about it and he said he was going to get one

I really like my fitbit force. It is my watch, it can count stairs as well as steps. It depends what you expect out of it whether or not you'd be satisfied. If you aren't sure, I'd buy the force at REI. They accept returns up to a year after purchase, whether it was used or not.

I have the force, but it has been recalled (voluntarily - I'm keeping mine!) due to some people having reactions to the nickel. I got it as a gift, so I felt like I could afford to spend the $$ to link MyNetDiary to Fitbit for food tracking, as I have been using MyNetDiary for so long, I didn't want to have to start all over again. I also splurged on the Fitbit Aria Scale. The only issue I have with the Aria, is that it says I'm 2 lbs more than my old scale . I find the fitbit super motivating. I find myself walking more, pushing harder to get 10,000 steps. I am able to compete with peers, and love the badges (more badges with the Aria too ) I love being able to quickly log my water too. The sleep tracking, IMO, leaves something to be desired. I have been using the Sleep Cycle alarm clock app (IOS) for a couple of years and I love it. The best buck or two I have ever spent! I am really hoping that Fitbit will soon be able to sync with Sleep Cycle and then be able to turn the fitbit into an intelligent alarm (making the alarm go off when your more likely to be coming out of deep sleep, rather than in the middle of it!) It has made mornings for me so much better. I still use sleep cycle for my alarm, and just use the fitbits alarm as an "Ok, you clearly turned your alarm off and went back to sleep, so you have to get up NOW" alarm

I highly recommend it!
