    Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity & Sleep Wristband

    Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity & Sleep Wristband is rated 3.3091 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accurate enough for me If you are an avid exerciser who wants every possible metric about your performance, the FitBit Flex probably isn't for you. It really is primarily a pedometer that will count your steps, though you can go online and enter different activities (like cycling, swimming, etc.) if you know the start time and duration and FitBit will calculate the "steps" equivalent. For cycling, I've had the best luck getting Endomondo to sync correctly and do the calculations right, though MapMyRide is supposed to work as well. One of the things I like most about it is that it's very difficult for me to lose it -- I wear it on my wrist 24/7 and only take it off to charge it. Every other pedometer or activity monitor I've had was one that clipped to my clothing and I would constantly lose it or forget to put it on. I don't have to worry about that with the Flex, because it's always on my wrist and I don't even have to think about it. It is VERY important to figure out your stride length and enter that into your Dashboard online (you can have separate stride lengths for walking and running). Once I did that and synced up, the information I got was far more accurate. People who are having trouble with accuracy should be sure to take this step -- I think they will be much more pleased with it once they do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I love this product. It syncs with fitbit.com and you personalize your profile to measure a compendium of personal stats. The sleep tracking was interesting as it showed what time I went to bed, how long it took me to fall asleep,when I got up, if I was restless, total hours of sleep and total hours in bed. Amazing! My sleep was much different than I thought. I think it's accurate based on the steps/calories measured by my other pedometer, but even if it isn't it is accurate for me day to day and that's fine for my use. I am wearing it on my dominant hand which is not recommended, but I wear a watch and they didn't both fit on my wrist. I am obsessed with the tracking part on the website and my awareness of exercise and what I eat has increased tenfold. One cool feature is that when you reach your activity goal for the day, 10,000 steps, 10 miles, whatever you input, it vibrates and buzzes very softly and the lights go crazy in celebration! It's a little private moment of self satisfaction. Great positive reinforcement. If I was an avid athlete, I think I would be even more into the possibilities of the device. The only con is that you have to take it off to charge it and you lose that tracking time. Otherwise I haven't removed it since I bought it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All that I wanted it to be... I purchased the FitBit Flex to replace the FitBit Zip my company gave all employees. I wore the Zip every day and met the company goal of a 1,000,000 steps. I decided this technology was going to be a constant part of my life/routine and wanted to upgrade and move away from the shifting the Zip between clothing changes. It works just as well as the Zip and the sync is faster and more consistent. I do miss the digital screen of the Zip to know where your goal is for the day, but I always carry my phone and just get in the habit of checking my progress for the Flex. The Flex is very consistent with my RunKeeper program for distance. I have enjoyed getting feedback on my sleep patterns. I wear it 24/7 and have had no issues with showering. I will purchase one for my wife when she meets her 1,000,000 program. I really enjoy the feedback and challenge of meeting my goal. It has really helped my wife and I understand how hard it can be to stay active when juggling work and kid schedules. It really helps see what it takes to burn off the calories you take in for the day and gets you motivated to get your steps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Become more active Overall, I'm satisfied with the FitBit Flex, yet if I was to go back and choose between the Flex and Force, I would go with the Force. The Flex is lightweight and comfortable so it's easy to wear 24/7. The actual device (not the band) is good quality and seems very durable. The band, however, doesn't seem to be the best quality and I could see if wearing down quickly. Also, the little piece that snaps the band together isn't durable and I've already had one break. The band & device are waterproof, yet I recommend after getting it wet or sweaty to remove the device from the band and dry both off. Otherwise, it will get stinky. This is where the Force has an advantage. The force is the band so there aren't any crevices for sweat or water to accumulate. The flex has 5 lights, each represent 20% of your daily goal (you choose your goal: steps or calorie), so throughout the day you can double-tap the flex and it will light up with 1-5 dots depending on how much of your goal you have completed. You can set your daily goal of steps, active minutes, calories, and distance. Note: the phone App does NOT sync with an Iphone 4...I had to upgrade to an Iphone 5 for the app to be comptable. If you don't have an IPhone 5, then you can log on online using a computer to see all your statistics. The app syncs well with MyFitnessPal so you can log all your food and water on that app and it will be integrated with your fitbit data. This is nice because I don't like the food log on the fitbit app. It should be noted that the flex's count of "steps" isn't a true count of just steps taken. The "step" count is more a measurement of movement. So, it might count "steps" when doing jumping jacks since your arms are moving. I like it that it count "steps" like this because essentially its logging how active you are. If you clean the house, you might not think you are taking many steps, but the flex will count all that movement you're doing. Downside, it won't count "steps" on a stationary bike. The FitBit One or Zip are better for true "step" count & if worn on your hip, will count movement on a stationary bike. I prefer the flex. I'm happy with it and it encourages me to walk a lot more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hardware, Mediocre App I wear the Flex day in day out. I do lots of walking, every other day at the gym (boxing, calisthenics, stationary bike). Pro: The device itself is great. It's lightweight, compact, and relatively discreet. The best part is that you often forget you're wearing it. *Battery life is pretty good considering it's on at all times. Con: *The downside is that the app will not sync any data from your Flex unless you're connected to the internet. If you don't have connectivity, don't even bother opening the app. *If you're sweating, moisture will tend to build up between your skin and the inside of the band, regardless of how tight or loose you wear it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a decent pedometer I have worn this for a month solid. It is relatively durable and unobtrusive. The tiny 'display' is functional, but they should have built some sort of watch/time function in. The band is comfortable, but somewhat difficult to fasten the first few times. The tiny fitbit unit itself fits within the band. You have to remove it from the band to charge the device. You must either synch the device to your phone (limited compatibility.. see the fitbit site) or use the included USB wireless adapter. It works really well with my Samsung Galaxy S4. It also integrates with several food/caloric tracker applications. The sleep function isn't perfect, but it does provide some interesting reference data and has helped me determine foods/patterns that make me restless at night. I would have given this 5 stars except for the charging cable. The connectors on the fitbit are proprietary and you have to use the included cable to plug into a USB port or standard charger. I lost a cable and the replacement was $20 plus shipping. VERY annoying. Having to remove from the band to charge is also kind of annoying.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More accurate than the Ultra I had the Ultra, which was pretty much a pain to remember to move from clothing item to clothing item, then the syncing process was pretty hit or miss. I hated the sleep wristband. This new Fitbit, the Flex, fits my wrist well (Medium), does not bother me at night, and seems very accurate (mileage lines up with known distance). I also like the little light system, once I read the owner's guide and learned what they all mean.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Love this product. Don't have to remember which pair of shorts I left my pedometer in, its always on my wrist. Very good Iphone app, good website from fitbit.com. Wish battery life was a little longer, have to recharge every 3 - 4 days. Wish the bracelet was larger.
