Yesterday, we walked 9.71 miles, and burned 3,624 calories. You?
Using its accelerometer and altimeter, it tracks how many steps you’ve taken, how far you’ve walked, how many calories you’ve burned, and even how many stairs you’ve climbed!
The data you upload using your PC or Mac (automatically syncing wirelessly with the charging base station whenever you’re nearby) can also be synced to an iPhone app or accessed from any device from a mobile-optimised site, but you can’t sync data directly_to_your iPhone. Happily, an OLED screen under the velvety plastic exterior can cycle through all the stats live, at any time. The app also lets you easily track more areas of your life, including calorie intake – Online, you can track how well you slept – how long it took you to fall asleep, how often you woke and so on – and even add custom things to track, such as number of cigarettes smoked.
It claims to be 95-97% accurate for step counting, and that feels about fair. You can improve distance walked that’s inferred from this by calculating your stride and tweaking the default values online – though even without doing this, our results were reasonably accurate.
We Like the Fitbit. It’s not cheap, but beats the Jawbone UP.
