Fitbit Tracker - A Wireless Acitivity Trainer
The Fitbit Tracker senses motion in three dimensions in order to provide accurate tracking of caloric burn, number of steps, distance traveled and quality of sleep.
The Wireless Activity Tracker uses a three dimensional motion sensor similar to the one in the Nintendo Wii. It converts the motion data into meaningful information about your daily activity levels and how they change over time. The Fitbit can be worn on your waist, carried in a pocket, or clipped onto undergarments. When you sleep, the Fitbit clips to a provided wristband to track the quality of your sleep. Everytime you come close to the wireless base, the Fitbit automatically uploads data to your PC and then to Fitbit.com. The Tracker requires use of the Fitbit.com website and can store up to 7 days of summarized data before an upload to the wireless base station is required.
The Fitbit provides data with enough accuracy to provide you, the user, a good idea of your activity levels and how they change from day to day. It has an accuracy level similar to many motion detection systems used in medical research activities. The Tracker also provides one of the most accurate pedometers, with an estimated 95-97% accuracy rate based on tests conducted by Fitbit. Sleep data also shares similar accuracy to clinical polysomnogram equipment used in sleep clinics.
The Fitbit Tracker is not designed to be used when biking or swimming. It is water resistant, but not waterproof. Fitbit.com provides the ability to upload data manually to keep all your activities logged, but the Tracker itself will not accurately track your activity when biking. The Fitbit is most useful for providing a good sense of daily activity and to help provide motivation to people that want to increase their daily activity levels as part of an overall health management program.
And here''s what some of the customers who bought the Fitbit Tracker have to say about it:
...Got my Fitbit in January 2010, I am using the online software to track my food intake and exercise. And for the first time I now know about my sleeping habits and since I have been a sleepwalker since childhood I now get some idea of when that happens...
...It appears the further away from your belt line this is worn, the less accurate it is. The further away from your belt line it is worn it over measures your activity. This might not be as much as a problem on the torso as it would be on the arms and legs...
...I ordered FitBit with a bit of hesitation, not expecting too much. The first one I received died after a couple of days,but I did contact customer service via email and I was pleasantly surprised that a replacement was delivered in pretty quick order and now I have been trouble free for 8 months...
