I recently purchased one of the new and trendy Fitbit bracelets and can’t get enough of it!
I’ve certainly read a mix of reviews, but so far, I can’t really say anything terribly negative about it. The one thing that bothered me was the lack of instructions when I purchased it. I assumed it was as simple as plugging the USB into your laptop and downloading the app, but it was actually a bit more complicated than that.
The first thing I quickly learned was that the app doesn’t automatically search for your Fitbit. You have to add a device to it before it will sync. Luckily, the data is already storing long before you download the app and will sync up nicely after everything is connected. The second thing I learned is that it’s actually kind of tricky to snap on. The band offers two sizes, small and large, with several notches for adjustment. However, I’ve found that I have to press pretty hard to get the Fitbit strap to “snap” into place. The last thing that kind of bums me out is the food database. It doesn’t even compare to MyFitnessPal in this regard; however I’m told these two apps will sync. So with these the exception of these three minor things, I’d give the bracelet two thumbs up. (Here’s a pretty great review of the product.)
New fitness jewelry aside, I’ve had a pretty exhausting few weeks. Saturday was our 4th Annual GOTR 5K, which was an absolute blast.
It was pretty much a nonstop kind of day, which left me starving and exhausted. After we finished, we had some leftover food and I devoured an embarrassingly large amount. I headed home and took the world’s longest nap. The night before that was Alex’s birthday dinner. We went to Oliverio’s with his family and then headed to Bartini for a few hours. It was a great time! The whole weekend was actually full of running around and having a blast.
Now I can take some down time to listen to my newest Audible purchase: The Goldfinch.
