On Fitbit

Just read an interesting post by Russ Frushtick. The author seems being annoyed by Fitbit and Fitbit related topics. One of his argue point is many people around him wears the Fitbit bracelets. No wonder he feels invaded. Here are my thoughts on Fitbit and other activity trackers.

I feel comfortable to put it under my clothes. No need to explain what it is because nobody could see it unless I deliberately take it out from my pocket.

Then Fitbit Inc. released Fitbit Flex, which is a bracelet. I can’t say that Flex is not good looking but I never considered to own one. Even when Fitbit Force was released in 2013. BTW. Both Fitbit Flex and Force are bracelets. Instead, I upgraded my Fitbit Classic to Fitbit One, which is designed to be hidden.
