    Love my fitbit! I try to make my 10 000 step a day goal; it's amazing to me how much I walk at work.

    I've never heard of the Fitbug until now. I have a Fitbit and I love it. I love all of the feedback. Plus, they have superior customer service.

    I have a fitbit and I do like it even though I hate wearing things on my wrists.

    I have a fitbit one (and a zip, but I only use the one) and I love it! I really like that I can "compete" with my friends to see who gets the most steps in a day and a week!

    I've never heard of a Fitbug. I have a Fitbit Zip (easily clips to my bra) and I've heard the One is good but the wrist type is annoying according to a few friends of mine.

    I love my FitBit! I've never heard of a FitBug. I still do my food tracking on a different app because I don't like the setup and lack of food choices in my FitBit.

    Skylet fitbit zip clips is very good for your fitbit. I am using it and feel well.

    I have the fitbit charge HR, and I love it! I have family members that I compete with and occasionally other teachers at school. I chose this one over some of the others because it has the digital display so I can see my stats and time.

    I ave a fitbit charge. They recently updated their dashboard and the app gives a lot of useful info and options for tracking not only steps, but will map your run/walk, tells how many calories burned, heart rate, etc. you can track your food and sleep and there's social features where you can cheer on or compete with friends.

    I had a flex, a zip (lost it) and a Charge HR. I love the Charge HR but you just can't dress that thing up.
