iGadgetgeek Reviews – Fitbit Ultra

iGadgetGeek Bio Page
For many of us the new year brings promises to get a little healthier, and our iGadgetGeek, Rodger Tennant, has the review for you to make keeping fitness goals fun and easy – the Fitbit Ultra.

The Fitbit One is available at AT&T stores and online.

Fitbit Wireless Activity Tracker makes every step you take a step toward better fitness, even on your busiest days. Fitbit monitors your all-day activity to provide you with real-time feedback on steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed to encourage you to walk more and be more active.

  • It wirelessly uploads your data to Fitbit.com so you can gain deeper insight into your daily or monthly fitness and sleep levels with free online graphs and charts. On Fitbit.com, you can earn fitness badges, connect with friends to share and compete on fitness goals, or join the Fitbit community for advice and encouragement.
  • Using a 3-D motion sensor, Fitbit tracks all the details about your daily activity that conventional pedometers would miss. When worn close to the body, this device tracks daily steps, number of stairs climbed, distance traveled, calories burned, and overall intensity of the activity level. Fitbit also contains an altimeter to track stairs or hills climbed. The compact design of the Tracker makes it easy to wear tucked into your pocket, clipped to a belt or bra all day.
  • You can also wear the Tracker at night with the included Fitbit wristband to monitor how long and how well you sleep. The Fitbit One and Fitbit Ultra will monitor when you fall asleep and how many times you woke up throughout the night to provide a sleep efficiency index.
  • Fitbit can help you reach your exercise, diet and overall wellness goals. In fact, Fitbit users increase their daily steps by 43 percent and have lost an average of 13 pounds.
  • At Fitbit.com, you’ll enjoy free online tools that show how your activity measures up over time and keep you motivated, with no monthly fee required. Your dashboard quickly shows you how close you are to achieving your weekly goals on calories burned, steps taken, and other fitness goals.
  • Fitbit makes fitness fun by translating your real accomplishments into real life examples. For instance, tracking that you’ve climbed 22 floors is the same as climbing to the top of the Statue of Liberty. To keep you motivated, you can earn badges for daily and lifetime fitness activities.
  • Invite friends through email or through Facebook to connect on Fitbit.com to build a fitness network. Set collaborative or competitive challenges together, or tap into the growing Fitbit.com community to access tips and receive encouragement. With Fitbit, it’s like working out with a group of virtual friends every day.
  • You can build a complete picture of your overall fitness by logging foods and workouts. The Fitbit database has over a 100,000 specific food items for you to select from. Enter workout specifics from yoga, Pilates, elliptical workouts, boot camp, spinning, kickboxing, and even Wii games from the workout database. Fitbit’s Food Goal feature shows you the range of calories you should stick to every day to reach your weight loss goals, and dynamically adjusts based on your day’s activities. You can also track your weight and other health indicators like blood pressure, glucose, and heart rate.
  • Mobile Tools: Much more than a pedometer. With our mobile website and our free iPhone App, you’ll be able to log workouts, food, water, weight, and much more, plus check your stats while on the go. Log workouts and food even when offline, so no detail gets forgotten.
  • Comes with sleep wristband and base station with charger.
  • Automatically syncs your data to PCs, Macs, the iPhone 4S, 5, the 3rd generation iPad, iPod touch, and on select Android phones.
