Default Fitbit

Just picked up a Fitbit One yesterday. So far so good. I can't wait to build up some stats and see how active (or inactive) I really am. I'm hoping to use this to move around a bit more during the day instead of sitting all day. Seeing my sleeping pattern is also interesting so far.

I picked one up a few weeks ago. However, I just ran it through the wash and now it doesn't work I've lost it several times as well. I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

I have it as well

My only gripe is when i sync it to the iphone fitbit app, it only records the calories burned (no steps or stairs) if i dont sync it at end of each day. Weird

Mine tells me I wake up 22-28 times per night. I guess it's possible but I think it is either counting one wakeup multiple times or counting times when I don't wake up but just move slightly.

I always wanted one but lately I think everything is too gimmicky. I can never use anything long enough. I had a $300 HR Suuto watch that I thought was awesome the first year I used it, now I don't even care about my HR.
