Default Fitbit Owners Thread

I just ordered the Blaze at a discounted price from work. This will be my first device. Any Blu-ray members out there owns a Fitbit?

I just bought a Blaze also from Best Buy a few minutes ago!

I've had Fitbits since summer of 2013. I started with the Flex, then in April 2015 moved to a Surge since it had GPS and worked with tracking cycling. I loved the features of the Surge, but it was just not well built. I had it replaced twice during the 1 year warranty. First time was because the band was falling apart in several places (which with the Flex and Blaze isn't a problem since you can replace those, but you can't on the Surge). Then the replacement one would only hold a charge for a day, and only would last 30 minutes if I used the GPS tracking. Now my third one's band is falling apart and I am out of the warranty now.

I decided I wanted to get the Blaze since it has GPS tracking, by using your phone's GPS, and I can replace bands if they break. I was just waiting for a discount on it. I saw Best Buy had the large plum version on sale for $169.99, so I bought that and a blue replacement band for $29.99. I had the $10 gift card from the spend $50 on movies/tv shows a few weeks ago and I had a $25 gift card from the Ibotta app.

Can't wait to go pick it up today!

As for it's effectiveness, it works well when I put my mind to actually reaching the goals and keep a food diary. Before I got a Fitbit, I was around 230 pounds. The lowest I've been is 195 pounds. Recently I've gotten off track and haven't been eating well since I've had some changes in my life and I'm around 210 now, but I'm starting back up again and I'm hoping this purchase will help with my motivation.

I run 35 to 50 miles a week on average, but I do not own a Fitbit, because they remind me of the collars that the school kids had to wear in the movie, Battle Royale.

Most of my running friends wear them, and love them, though.

A bunch of my coworkers, several of my friends, and my wife all have a fitbit so I finally jumped on the bandwagon so I can participate in their weekend warrior activities.

I've had my Charge HR since February 2015 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. I just like tracking things in general, so tracking my steps and flights was an obvious next step for me.

Been a huge Fitbit fan for a long time but my Charge recently broke. Contacted Fitbit and as they are discontinuing the Charge for the Alta they are sending me a free Charge HR instead. I love Fitbit's customer service.

Can't wait to start tracking my HR.

I agree on their customer service. Somehow I got a crack across the face of my Blaze over the weekend. Called them up and explained everything and they sent me a shipping label for a return and they are going to replace it for free.

They are an awesome company as I hear a lot of stories about getting replacements, upgrades when little things happen.

HR should be here on Saturday
