4.0 out of 5 stars Fit bit zip (USA), 20 Oct 2012
This review is from: FitBit Zip Activity Tracker (Electronics)
This little gadget is great
Way better than any other pedometer I've had
I'd looked at Fitbit for a while but other versions had pros and cons not least of which was having to charge them regularly on a base station, which prevented me from buying as I travel on business a lot. This latest version has a button battery which lasts approximately 3 months, problem solved and I bought my wife and I one each. our new fitness regime is great we are not at our 10,000 steps per day yet but averaging 6-7,000 after just a couple of weeks.
The only downside is that logging your calorie intake is a nuisance until you have put in your own custom foods as everything is American in the foods library. Its not enough to make me send it back but armed with this knowledge again I'd probably by a non-linked pedometer with accelerometer technology and no wifi, I'd just log the steps manually [some on the market record a week's data and I'd sign up for the free and British [...] which does just about everything the fitbit web site does. that combination would be much more user friendly than fiddling with the fitbit food log. Still gets 4 stars because of its design and the diminishing problem as time goes on with the software by adding favourites and custom foods using the calories listed on all food packaging.

Download my fitness pal app on your smartphone if you have one as it works with fitbit & has any food you could imagine in it from all over the world.. Brilliant when both used together

I was intending to say exactly what Samantha has already told you. My fitness pal is great with fitbit!

I need something that will link to my aria and does not cost the earth, So, where do I get your tracker from?

I need to add to the last, The only way I was able to connect my aria was with a Samsung tab 2, as the computer was useless at it. So assuming you let me have your tracker, will it accept android gizmos?
