Excuse me while I Flex


Today I would love to tell you about my new toy. Don’t forget that I am an IT Professional so I am all day long at the office sitting and drinking coffee “That´s not an healthy life” that s why i bought my FitBit Flex.

¿What is Fitbit Flex?

Fitbit Flex

Fitbit Ultra activity tracker in teal, worn with blue jeans

The Fitbit Tracker uses a three-dimensional accelerometer, similar to that in the Wii Remote, to sense user movement. The Tracker measures steps taken, distance walked, calories burned, floors climbed, and activity duration and intensity. It uses an OLED display to display this and other information such as the battery level. It also measures sleep quality: how long it takes the wearer to fall asleep, how often they wake up over the course of the night, and how long they are actually asleep.

wireless base station is included to receive data from the Tracker and also charge its battery. When connected to a computer the base station will upload data to the Fitbit. From the website, a number of features are possible: seeing an overview of physical activity, setting and tracking goals, keeping food and activity logs, and interacting with friends. Use of the website is free.

Development history

The product was announced on September 9, 2008 at TechCrunch50 during the “Mobile” session. Fitbit received positive reactions during its panel from experts like Rafe NeedlemanTim O’Reilly, and Evan Williams who cited its wearability, price point, and lack of subscription fees.

The Fitbit Classic tracked only steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned, activity intensity, and sleep. It was designed to be a small black and teal device that could be clipped discreetly onto clothing and worn 24/7.

So guys if you do the same that I do buy a Flex and monitor all your activities even your food.

Here how it works.
