Fitbit: Which One?


In my quest to change my lifestyle, I’ve look at my relationship with food and my diet and all things food related. I’m really trying to understand what I need to eat and what I don’t. What fuel my body needs and what sources of food will provide that, and which foods will provide it, but also provide me a tonne of other stuff I don’t need!

Now I feel that although I’m not 100% on this yet, I have started to understand things a bit better. My “diet” isn’t quite as strict as it was at the beginning; I found being hungry all the time made me super angry and unbearable. I was snappy and I can’t say Luke was enjoying my more up tight mood. So I am eating healthily and bumbling along without too many mishaps. But it’s time for something more!

I’m not active enough. It’s as simple as that. I am a “stay at home mum” *shudder* and I spend most days chasing Luke around. That’s okay, but we don’t have much space to play outside and if we’re inside, I’m not moving nearly as much as I should.

So I want to purchase myself a Fitbit! But I just have no idea which one to go for!

I’m torn between the Flex and the Charge. My budget is UNDER £100 as I have things to save for and I can’t really justify shedding out loads of money on something that isn’t essential. I feel I would really benefit from one, but I don’t want it to cost the Earth.

So I need your help!

Which Fitbit do you own? What’s it like? Do you like it, would you recommend it? Do you wish you’d bought another one in the range, or even a different brand?

These are the sort of things I want to know before I shell out the money! Please comment me or tweet me @gloryiscalling and let me know what you think!

    Everyone seems to be saying the fitbit flex, but I’m still stuck. I really like the features of the Charge but I just can’t work out if I can justify the price! xx

      I’m leaning towards the charge at the moment but I’m just not sure, I like the features but I can’t work out if I can justify the extra cost!

    Well I got a Fitbit Flex for my birthday about two weeks ago and I love it! They come in some fab colours (important) – mine is violet. But for me it is quite addictive seeing how many steps you do each day and trying to improve on it day after day.

    I did look at the charge because my husband told me to compare them both but if I’m honest I felt that it did more than I actually needed it to.

      I have seen that with the flex you can also get funky bands from Amazon and eBay , whereas you’re kind of stuck with whichever colour you choose if you have the Charge. I think seeing on my wrist how many steps I’ve taken would be quite nice, rather than having to dig out my phone! I know that if I had to pay for it myself, I think I’d get he Flex for the cost issue, but I have a £100 gift voucher for Amazon from my birthday so I’m still toying with the idea of the charge. I don’t want to get the flex and then resent not getting the charge. Xx

    Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday. I hope you land on the right one! Our local community center/gym (YMCA) provides afterschool care, and it’s cheaper to have the membership and pay the discounted rate for childcare than to skip the membership. The gym has a fun room for the children while I exercise, so I’ve been taking full advantage of cardio classes.
