I have been trying Fitbit Zip for the past few weeks and I’m in love with it!
Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker (RRP £49.99) is a smart activity tracker that tracks your steps, distance and calories burned.
It also syncs those stats to your computer and smartphone, making it really easy to keep track of your activities.
I loved the fact that Fitbit Zip is small and compact. You can wear it in your pocket, on a belt, or a bra.
This tracker is as discreet or as visible as you want it to be. Its silicone clip will keep you comfortable throughout the day.
Zip is also rain, splash, and sweat-proof. With a replaceable watch battery that lasts up to six months, it’s excuse-proof too.
It comes with batteries, so you can set it up straight away and start moving.
It only takes a few seconds to place the battery, close the back of the Fitbit Zip and put it inside the silicone clip.
It was easy and simple to make a Fitbit account, add a device and sync activities. Fitbit app is free, so I downloaded it straight away to keep track of my activities.
Zip encourages you to set goals, challenge friends, and go farther – one step at time.
That’s how you turn everyday life into a social, achievable, awesome path to fitness.
Powered by Fitbit’s leading-edge accelerometer, Zip accurately captures all-day activity that old-school pedometers can’t handle.
It bases calculations like calories burned on your personal profile – reflecting your stats.
Fitbit Zip comes in five different colours, so you can pick your favourite: blue, white, green, black and pink.
Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker was built to keep you moving.
By showing you how your day is stacking up, Zip encourages you to get up and go…and keep going!
It helps you make those small changes that can add up to something big. (No wonder Fitbit users average 43% more steps each day.)
That’s how Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker works:
You can track your daily activity: steps taken, distance travelled and calories burned
You can sync it anytime, anywhere: Zip automatically syncs your stats to your computer and selected smartphone
Check out your progress: get the full picture and gain insight with free graphs, charts and tools.
Make fitness fun: set goals, earn badges, challenge friends and smile. There are badges for daily, weekly and even lifetime achievements.
Between Zip, Fitbit’s free mobile app, and the free online dashboard, you’ll get a snapshot of your daily and cumulative progress. Imagine graphs, tools, charts, and a customisable dashboard to boot.
Fitbit’s goal is to make your data digestible and useful. By knowing how close you are to reaching your personalised weekly goals, you can take those extra steps to achieve them.
I really like keeping a close look on my activities, so I found the app charts and weekly email update very useful.
On a daily basis, I check my daily tracker on the app, which shows how many steps I have travelled and how many calories I burned.
At the end of the week, I check my weekly stats in the app. There is a graph for the weekly calories and another graph for the weekly steps.
Once the week is over, I receive an email with my weekly summary including total steps, total distance and total calories burned.
The weekly summary also shows the most active day of the week and the least active day. It also has the best day for steps, the best day for distance
The badges are fun too as they motivate you to move more and beat your previous records.
Besides, you can also log your meals, water, workouts and weight with the mobile app. Fitbit can use your food and activity date to help you set and reach daily calorie objectives.
Overall, I’m very impressed with Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker, it’s a very clever gadget, extremely useful and easy to use.
