In my never-ending quest to get fit, I’ve tried just about everything. The fact of the matter is that I’m just not terribly motivated. Working out with Kinect is nice since it turns it into more of a game, but there’s nothing there to really push me. Jogging is just about my worst nightmare (and my knees’ as well). Organized sports in the city are a pain to get to, or at least more of a pain than I am willing to cope with. After ruling out all of these logical activities, I turned to the next best thing: buying expensive trinkets on the internet!

Fitbit is, at its heart, a pedometer. But it is one hell of a pedometer! It also does a lot of other nifty stuff, such as track your sleep, and it provides a website to look at all your data in a pretty format. You can even track what you’ve been eating and whether you’ve been working out in other ways. So, is it worth it? Now that I’ve been using it for a week, let’s take a look.
