Anyone have a Fitbit?

I think this is what I want for Christmas this year from my parents. Yes I'm a grown woman, but to splurge on something like that would be hard for me to do.
So does anyone here have one and do they love it?

Its kind of like a heartrate monitor only you wear it all day and it gauges how many calories you burn all day, including how well you are sleeping.

I do not have one, but a lot of my friends on MFP have them and love it! They have said it was worth the money and it now sync's with MFP so more are getting one.

yes, I use MFP too. My weight loss is always so slow and sometimes nonexistent and I think it has to do with eating super close to my limit for the day and not knowing "exactly" how many calories I'm burning. I think this will make things a lot easier for me.

I agree. I really started losing when I got an HRM. I am hoping Santa brings me a better HRM for Christmas. The Fitbit would be nice too because I will know how I am doing when I don't workout.

Re: Anyone have a Fitbit?

I have a fitbit ultra and I like it, but for super accurate calorie burning a heart rate monitor is best, so i wear fitbit all day and hr monitor when i work out.

Re: Anyone have a Fitbit?

I just ordered one the end of last week. I can't wait for it to get here. I bought it off amazon with gift cards so it wasn't as much as retail. I really thought I would find it on sale somewhere around Christmas but never did. Granted I wanted the one with the sleep monitor built in so it was slightly more.

Another good alternative is the nike fuel. I don't think you can use it with mfp though.

I had heard the Nike fuel band wasn't getting that great of reviews. That's why I stayed away from it.
