I have joined the FitBit generation
I inherited the thing from my husband – source of all new and highly rated technology. He found the one he had purchased several months ago too small for his large wrist. Besides – the screen was too small for him to read the time – and he couldn’t use it as a watch.
So he took advantage of Black Friday sales (on Saturday – but never mind) to purchase a newer, larger – with more screen space – version. And I have inherited his older one.
Good thing its decided small on him – otherwise I’d be swimming in it – but it’s actually not a bad size. And since I had thrown away my last watch (well – donated it to the VON – but you know what I mean), I definitely wanted a watch that wasn’t complicated, didn’t need to be loosened all the time – and was black.
I like black watches – they never clash with what I’m wearing. They might not actually go with what I’m wearing – but I’m much more concerned with clashing.
Back to my FitBit – man – this is complicated. I had to go to FitBit.com – set-up a new user, bond my fit bit to my ID – which set back the data file – a good thing, who wants to be saddled forever with someone else’s work out data. I used the very convenient help option to figure out how to control my dashboard – and was even able to Sync the thing to my computer. I can’t sync the thing to my iphone – my OS is too old, and apparently my ipad is also over the hill – technically speaking. So computer it is.
First day results – over 10,000 steps thank you very much! They even gave me a badge.
Question – what’s with that? Am I so needy that my Fit Bit has to congratulate me for walking? How pitiful is that.
But as per the Fit Bit – I rock.
Will monitoring my sleep help me sleep better? Will I walk further knowing that someone (even if it’s just my own computer for goodness sakes) is monitoring my results? The jury is still out – 3 days is simply insufficient data to draw a conclusion.
But meanwhile – wave at me when I walk by – when I get to doing 10,000 with regularity – the next goal is 20,000!
Signing off to walk… The Soup Lady
Cannot follow your blog anymore. It’s covered with publicity of some kind. Not interested in paying money to get rid of it.
Well – that’s no fun – and you are the 2nd person to complain. I’m going to see what I can do – I don’t have a proper computer unfortunately (ipads are fun – but they are definitely NOT a real computer) and I don’t see the ads when I look at my blog. Meanwhile – I’ll forward you a copy by email.
I’m so sorry that WordPress is doing this – but I guess they, like the rest of us, must eventually need some money to keep in business.
Thanks Leslie. I appreciate you sending your blog back. Your last one was the only one I had problems with. I’m thinking of getting a FitBit for my husband so I enjoyed your feedback. Continue writing.👍
I quite like my fitbit. I enjoy getting that little tingle that says – you met your goal of 10,000 steps – and I love the record keeping aspects. So – bottom line – highly recommend it. Leslie
