I had the pleasure to review the Fit Bit Flex as part of being a Verizon Wireless Midwest Contributor.
Let me give you a little background info on exactly what the Flex is...its a wristband that tracks steps, distance, and calories burned (this is tracked during the day), and at night it tracks your sleep and also serves as a wake up device in the morning.
I thought this was pretty cool because right now my fitness routine is null & void since I am pregnant with twins. Walking is a chore right now because I am constantly in pain in my lower stomach area...however, I was surprised by the amount of walking that it tracked from day to day; especially on days when I had doctor appointments.
When I was asked to review the Flex I stated that I was going to use it more for tracking my sleep. When I slept and looked the next day I clearly wasn't meeting my goal for sleeping, but that wasn't surprising because I am constantly up off and on all night for either a bathroom break or just simply being uncomfortable.
So what did I think about the Fit Bit Flex...
Wearing the Fit Bit Flex
Overall, I think its good if you are interested in fitness. Even though I kept track of my sleep, I felt it was more beneficial for fitness purposes. I liked the feature of calories burned and the walking distance and steps tracker. The bracelet came in two sizes...I wore the larger of the bracelets, it was a little hard to get used to but after a while I didn't notice it on my arm anymore. I was going to use it more tracking my sleep...I didn't really care for this feature too much. I thought it would automatically track my sleep patterns by a movement or times but I had to go into the app each time and put in the system that I was going to sleep (which with pregnancy brain I often forgot to do).
