The only thing that put me off is how wearing the Fitbit Flex looked. I had a pink wristband that was both bright and garish, and getting pretty grubby. At work, it didn't go with my outfits and I felt it looked a bit sloppy and unsightly. I hid it up my sleeve and put up with it for a couple of weeks, before I spotted the Tory Burch for Fitbit bracelets on the Fitbit website. Without even thinking, I ordered one straight away - whilst I hankered for the double-wrap leather bracelet, £160 was almost three times what the tracker itself cost, so I opted for the more purse friendly silicone bracelet, for £35. I wear a lot of navy, especially at work, so I instantly gravitated towards the design that looked a little like a blue china effect as I thought it would fit with a lot of my outfits.
It arrived so beautifully wrapped, I was way more excited to unpack it than I should have been about a fitness bracelet! You have to already own the Flex in order to use the bracelet - you just slip the tracker into the hole in the back.
I am totally in love with it - I love that the tracker lights are shown inside the 'T' logo, it's such a neat design.
I've been loving using my Fitbit Flex over the last few weeks, it totally motivates me to make sure I meet my step and activity goals - as well as tracking my sleep. My best steps in a day so far is 40,000 steps, but most days I get around 15,000. The 'active minutes' measure is also one I always look out for, yesterday I was active for 64 minutes, which I was chuffed with considering I sit in a car for two hours and at my desk for about seven hours. It's also interesting to see how much more active I am on days when I've had a better night's sleep.
Do you use a fitness tracker? Do you have one that fits with your wardrobe or do you hide yours away like I used to?
If you're considering getting a fitness tracker, I've also reviewed the Fitbug Orb and the Polar Loop on my blog previously... I'm a bit of a fitness tracker geek!
