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’m a Fitbit user since 2011. At that time, we don’t have much choices. All you can get is Fitbit Classic or Fitbit Ultra, which both are small trackers placed on your belt. 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.
This is my very first typewritten passage on an Apple iPad. It feels strange but it’s fun!

我认为只有哲学问题才能通过思考解决，于是用一柱香的时间从思考的深渊中爬了出来，连上互联网开始调查。发现目前的确没什么人在做好一点的体温计，除了一家叫做 Kinsa Health 的初创公司看上去还靠谱之外，其他的产品简直惨不忍睹不堪入目。于是下单交钱，然后陷入了漫长的等待：家人已经不再发烧，还没发货；漫长的冬季已经结束，还没发货；转瞬即逝的春天刷完了存在感，还没发货；五一国际劳动节已经开始，还没发货……
