Fitbit is the leader in fitness-tracking devices, and it’s easy to see why. Its activity bands are comfortable, powerful, affordable, and some are even a little stylish.
Fitbits have displays for glanceable peeks at your activity throughout the day, but it’s the Fitbit app that really shines. Fitbits automatically track your exercise, which syncs with the iPhone app to display all your workouts on the beautifully designed dashboard. Fitbits also track your sleep if you wear them to bed, so that info is on the dashboard, too. You can manually input data like your weight (or use Fitbit’s wireless scale), food, and water intake.
The best part of the Fitbit app is its challenges, which keep you motivated throughout the week. You can compete against Fitbit-wearing friends to see who can rack up the most steps, which is an inspiring (and often infuriating) game to play.
Fitbit is a free app that is most useful when you use a Fitbit device.
