For an early birthday present, I got a FitBit One last week. It seems best suited for people who walk as their primary form of exercise. I’m still counting exercise minutes so that I feel like my stretching and strength-training count for something.
The FitBit lets you set goals. I’m aiming for 7000 steps and 20 floors of stairs every day. Occasionally, that means I go up and down the stairs a few times late in the evening!
The display that I most often keep it on shows a flower that grows or shrinks depending on how active you’ve been during the day. I try to keep it between 3 and 4 leaves — that’s good motivation to make sure that I’m not sitting too long.
Do you use a FitBit or other technology for monitoring your activity?
