10,000 Steps a Day with my FitBit One

by Nicole on February 11, 2013

You all know I am on Nurisystem and have lost over 20 pounds since December 1.  Each week I have pledged to increase my activity and this FitBit One is helping me stay accountable and stay moving!

With the holidays over, and the New Year upon us, people are thinking and setting what they hope to accomplish in 2013. For a lot of us, that includes getting our diet and exercise back on track after all of the holiday indulgences. Forget about resolutions that don’t or won’t stick – the good news is that we have a product that will help make sticking to that ever popular resolution – Getting Fit/Losing Weight easier – because it focuses on doing small changes each day. Experts say – that to make resolutions that stick – it’s really about making changes that are small and doable each and every day.

Did you know that studies have shown that if you just walk 10,000 steps a day, you can gain immeasurable health benefits? An average American only walks 6,000 a day! And if you had the tool to motivate you to make small changes throughout your day (walk a little bit more, eat a little bit better), and you can see/track how all these things add up to big results on your computer and your phone- wouldn’t that be fantastic?

Recently there have been some technological advancements that allow us to have these type of tools at our disposal at a very inexpensive price. Fitbit has the solution with the ultra-popular wireless activity trackers, Fitbit One and Fitbit Zip, and the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale.

I received the FitBit One and the FitBit Aria to try out.  I was so excited to get going with the FitBit One I opened it right away to get it set up.  I was amazed at how easy it was to hook up to my home network and within minutes it was ready to use.  I wear mine in my bra clipped and facing inside and you totally can’t tell.  My first goal was 5,000 steps and as you can see from my dashboard screenshot below I met it that day.

FITBIT ONE: Want to get Active, Sleep better for overall better fitness? The Fitbit One can help you get there. During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned and stairs climbed. Come nightfall, it measures your sleep cycle to help you see how to sleep better; and it can even wake you in the morning without waking your partner. Your stats upload wirelessly via computer or select mobile devices (like the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5).

Al of the data is sent wirelessly from the unit to my dashboard and I can see multiple days, etc from the dashboard.  So you can see this day I did over 5,000 steps but no stairs.  I don’t have stairs at home and most places I go are one level – this is Florida and I don’t live in the city.  Stairs will be hard for me.  I am surprised at the calorie burning number, and just wonder how they come up with that.  I am excited to reach my next goal of 10,o00 steps and am so cognizant now of getting up more and moving more!

I received a FitBit One for review as part of a campaign with MomSelect and FitBit.  All opinions are my own.

Thanks for the article. I bought a Fitbit one two weeks ago to help me with my goal to lose 60 lbs in 16 weeks. I looked at a couple of other products like the Nike Fuel yet I have a windows phone (HT7) and the Fitbit one was the only one I could use to sinc with my computer without having an Apple device.

I’m amazed at how many stats this little device keeps up with! What keeps me motivated is the badges that it gives once you complete a challenge. I keep wanting to go further and further to see what badge is next!

I’ve seen this before and it looks like a really cool device for keeping people on track to reach their fitness goals.
