    Anyone have a Fitbit Flex? Do you feel like it has improved your fitness and/or sleep? Worth the money?

    I bought one for my daughter (she is 12) and myself. It is great for her. It is the motivation to keep working. I think she has lost a few pounds. I really don't see any improvement with me. It does make me more aware of my sleep patterns. I am working on the computer this summer, so I am more sedated than normal.

    The only improvement I've found is when I join the challenges with my Fitbit friends. I am really competitive with this one woman I know and I always want to beat her in the amount of steps I get :lol: Sometimes it forces me to take an extra walk with the dog or something to get extra steps.

    I don't do the sleep mode. I'm a night owl.. so it will probably tell me what I already know...
    But it does make me more aware of my walking...taking steps!!! I usually wear it on my ankle or in my pocket because I just wasn't getting accurate counts with my wrist.

    OH FYI... forgot I had it in my pants pocket when I mowed our bumping lawn... loads of steps...LOL!!!
    The first time it buzzed my foot I thought I was getting shocked..LOL!!! I was in my laundry room so I thought did I step in water & next to cord or something. Every time it buzzes it still freaks me out. I usually jump!!! LOL!!!

    I have a Fitbit Charge and love it! After checking it after school some days I knew why I was exhausted!

    I really like mine and found it motivating. I do wish I had splurged for the HR one though.
