Fitbit bands are fabulous fitness trackers

The new trend of 2015 are fitness bands such as the Fitbit (Fitbit.com). The most common model is the Fitbit Flex, but is also available in many other apps and sizes such as the Fitbit Charge, Surge, One and Zip. The Fitbit Flex is a waterproof wireless activity and sleep wristband. The Fitbit team describes it as a "slim and stylish device that is with you all the time."

During the day, the device tracks how many steps you've taken, calories burned, distance walked and active minutes. When you download the Fitbit app, this information is wirelessly synced to your phone. Other features of the app include being able to have a step competition with your family and friends, personal goals and badges. The badges are rewarded to the user who has achieved his or her daily goal or a milestone, such as your first 100 miles with Fitbit. A Fitbit has an average battery life of about seven days and takes about two hours to charge. Fitbit bands are a fun, fabulous way to get in shape.
