4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin., 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In general this is an excellent product with only minor irritations.

The Fitbit accurately measures your steps and stairs climbed. It integrates well with other app based fitness tools such as MyFitnessPal. One of my gripes is that it's so small that it's very easy to lose. If you happen to be out in the the country then dropping your Fitbit will (unless you're very lucky) lead to it's being lost. That is what happened to my FitBit Ultra for which this item is a replacement. Built in GPS (or RFID) capabilities would resolve this issue.

The other issue is a predictive one rather than something born out of experience. The rubber housing that secures the device during the day doesn't seem strong enough for long term use. Bearing in mind you will remove the FitBit from the case before sleeping and then put it back in the morning then it gets stretched out of shape twice a day. I remain to be convinced that this will not deteriorate over time but I could be wrong.

Overall this item does exactly what it advertises it will do and does it well. The fact that I was prepared to get a second device after losing my Ultra goes some way to demonstrating how much I value the functionality. However, I don't think this device has fully developed to the full extent of it's capabilities. Maybe future iterations will add the functionality to achieve a 5 star review.
