What The Fitbit One Does

Obviously in order to decide if this is something that you should buy, then you are going to have to know more about what it can do. The clue is in the full name really. The Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker not only tracks your sleep, it also tracks your activity during the day. It achieves this by effectively counting the number of steps you take during the day, the number of stairs you climb, the distance you travel, and also the number of calories that you have managed to burn during that day. Right away you can see how invaluable this little tool can be in your efforts to keep track of your dieting and work out routines. Lets face it, we all have enough to keep track of in our sometimes hectic day to day lives as it is. You may also be surprised to learn just how many calories you do actually burn off when you are not even trying.

On top of all this it also monitors your nightly sleep cycle. With this kind of information you can learn about how you sleep and your sleeping habits. It measures things like how often you woke up even if you were not aware of doing so. The sleep tracker also has a cool little feature that wakes you up via a silent alarm so your partner can sleep on due to you wearing it on your wrist. When you wake up the next day just plug it into your computer and upload all of the information it has gathered through the night so you can check out how restless you actually were in bed. Pretty cool!

The information that the Fit Bit Tracker collects will be displayed in graphs, charts, and a whole host of other tools that show you exactly where you are doing well and where you need to improve. It then allows you to set some goals for yourself and you can collect badges when you reach certain targets or even have a contest with your friends to see who gets on the best. You will also be able to go online and log information such as your workout routines and even the food you were eating. Overall this tiny gadget just makes life that bit easier when tracking your progress whilst working to achieve your fitness goals. Check out the video below to see all the features of the Fit bit One.

Possible Issues With The Fitbit Tracker

No product is perfect and one piece of advice is not to wear it when you are driving because if you go over a couple of big bumps, then it may register this as actual steps and mess it all up. The only other issue is the clip because they do have a tendency to break if you are too forceful with it, so do be careful or it could snap and you could lose your Fit Bit Tracker.
