FitBit Flex | This ain’t yo daddy’s activity wrist band
Remember those old wrist bands that count your steps and track your distances? You do? Huh I guess I knew about them just never tried one.
Anyways Fitbit has something new. It’s the Fitbit Flex wrist band and it tells you a lot about yourself. It is more of a “well-being” tracker I guess you could say. It tracks not only your steps and distance traveled but also tracks your sleeping patterns and quality of sleep.
I personally don’t have a lot of need to see how many steps I take in a day but I do think it would be interesting to see how many hours at night I am actually sleep and how restful that sleep is.
It, as does everything these days, links up with all of your other fancy devices.
Part of your
Flex™ is your perfect companion. Wear it on your wrist day and night and it will track all of your activity. Just check out the lights to see how you stack up against your personal goals. It’s the motivation you need to get out and be more active.
