    Fitbit App

    Hi everyone! Since May, I have had a chance to try out a Fitbit Zip and Flex. Both are electronic pedometers that count your steps, distance walked, calories burned and Sleep pattern (Flex). The Zip is worn in your pocket or on your belt. While the Flex is a wristband that you wear. Both are water resistant and the Flex can safely be used in the shower--though I haven't tried it with mine.

    What sets these gadgets apart from other exercise trackers is wonderful jam-packed App. With its Bluetooth Capabilities to its App, you can instantly record your stats in real time anytime, tweet your results or see where your rank position is among your buddies! :)

    The Fitbit is available and to sync with iPad Mini, iPod Touch (5th Gen), iPad 3 and Retina, iPhone 4S and 5. It also syncs to several Samsung Galaxy phones and and Galaxy Note 10.1.

    Here's some of the features of the App...

    This is the Dash Board that gives you the number of Calories Burned, number of Steps taken and also the total miles walked.

    The Step window can be viewed in Portrait or Landscape mode to see the specific day and number of steps walked

    You can also add different activities to your Fit Bit App to add to your "Active minutes."

    I rode my stationary bike for 30 minutes which I entered and it automatically calculated the calories burned.

    You can also log your weight and body weight percentage. I haven't been good with this, but for some...this has been really handy when you're tracking your weight. :)

    ...and best yet, you can invite friends to compete with to keep you on track and moving!

    The "More" area of the Fitbit App has a lot of useful sections...

    You can log your meal by selecting from the food groups listed and number of calories it has.

    The " Water" Section is where you can log the amount of water you have consumed for the day.

    The "Sleep" Section is available on the Flex and the FitBit One. Here, it will give you the length of time you have slept and number of times you woke up.

    If you own a Flex wristband or a One, you can set the alarm-it's useful to me, since I use it as one of my alarm clocks in the morning.

    Overall, this is a jam-packed app which has tons of useful features to keep you on track and staying fit. It has been one of my daily go to Apps to sync my Zip/Flex to it and also check where my ranking is with my buddies! :) This app was fairly easy to learn to use. The syncing took just a few minutes, but much faster if you had your device plugged in to the main.

    Also, on the website...you can log in your Heart Rate, Blood Pressure and Glucose readings for additional monitoring. Very helpful for those who have heart or diabetic conditions.

    If you are interested in the "unboxing" of the Zip and the Flex...here's a few pics...

    Just as a follow-up, the Fitbit App has a recent update!

    The coolest part of this update is that it gives a 1-day status of your activity. It also has a "Distance" and "Active Minutes" log to your Dashboard!!

    Oh and by the way...did I mention you can earn badges??
