I added a Fitbit Force to the family
So far I don't know if I'll use ALL the functions for it as I do that on LoseIt! online. I don't want to duplicate anything, and since my Fitbit doesn't sync with my phone yet (they sync with some Samsungs but not mine), I would have to log everything from my computer later.
Anyway, here's to adding this little tool to my routine to see how I do. :)
*** 1/15/14 Update
I used a treadmill at the gym today to do what I call a walk-run (two minutes of each, back and forth for 28 minutes, then a 5-minute cool down). The treadmill had me at 285 calories burned at the end of my workout. I synced the unit with my computer and then added the calorie burn during the time I exercised and it came up with 286. That's close enough to be impressed! I may have to research to see if there's a way to make it a bit more sensitive during certain types of exercise like my kettlebells.
