If you are anything like me, then you probably don’t need a piece of technology to tell you that you aren’t getting solid, uninterrupted sleep. But wouldn’t it be kind of cool if you had something that could actually confirm that? Well, that’s just one of the amazing features of the FitBit One, an advanced activity and sleep tracker. Thanks to Verizon Wireless, I’ve had the opportunity to try out this awesome product. Now, instead of just complaining about being tired, I can actually tell you precisely how long I was restless in my sleep and how many times I was woken up. Pretty cool, right??
Besides just tracking the sad amount of sleep I get each night, the FitBit One also counts steps taken, distance walked, calories burned, and stairs climbed (which can be summed up as A LOT if you are chasing kids all day).
My FitBit One has a ton of awesome features. It’s very small and sleek, making it manageable to wear at anytime without being in my way. It can easily be clipped on to clothing or can be worn in a wristband, which is included with your purchase. Plus, the setup was quick and simple using my laptop. As a busy working mother, I don’t have a ton of time to spend uploading information from any device to store on my computer (hence why my iPod is still rocking playlists like “Top Hits 2010…”). I love that the FitBit One syncs wirelessly with my laptop and my smart phone so that I don’t have to spend any time uploading information. By logging in on the FitBit website or by opening the FitBit app on my iPhone, I can review my stats using easy to read graphs. Everything tracked on my FitBit can even be transferred to other apps, like Run Keeper and My Fitness Pal, so all my information can be stored in one place.
Staying active has always been an important part of my life. However, as a busy mother, staying on top of my workouts can be tough. The FitBit One is an awesome way to keep myself informed about the activity that I am doing all throughout the day, even if it wasn’t completed as a traditional workout in the gym (like the ones I used to enjoy in my pre-parenting days…). I definitely recommend the FitBit One to any busy mommy like myself, or anyone else for that matter that’s making an effort to stay in shape.
