On My Way To Great Health With Fitbit One

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

Before you start to read this post I just wanted to let you know this is not just an ordinary product review. This product may be a life changing device for myself and many others. Because of this little device I am on my way to becoming fit and healthy. Over the last three weeks I have successfully lost 6 lbs using this device. For my readers who know me personally you know how I have been struggling with weight loss. I have finally found a device that is now working with me to succeed in my weight loss goals.

I am so excited today to be able to share my thought about this little device called the Fitbit One. Being a part of the Verizon Boomer Voices program I have been given the opportunity to try the Droid Razr Maxx HD which has become my favorite cell phone of all time. Along with the awesome cell phone I was given a Fitbit One to try. When I first saw the Fitbit I did not think much about it at all. I had it for two weeks before I even opened the box. Well, let me tell you that was a mistake on my part. I could have been ahead of the the ball game on getting fit and healthy if I had started right off using it.
That little device is the awesome Fitbit One.
This is the Fitbit with accessories.  

The Fitbit tracks the number of steps walked, that same distance in miles, calories burned, and stairs (floors) climbed. That's not all the Fitbit does it also encourages and motivates me to get active! If that was all the device did it would still be a great device in my book. But, there is still more. This little device can be worn at night to monitor sleep. It can also be set to wake me up by vibrating. The silent alarm is awesome for my husband. My husband works into the early morning hours. I can set my alarm to wake me silently leaving my husband sleeping soundly. The Fitbit can sync to your desktop computer and some smart phones. With the Fitbit program on my computer I am able to log the food I eat easily. The Fitbit program has an extensive food and calorie listing that helps me easily log and keep track of my calorie intake. 
I can log my food, weight, blood pressure, glucose levels, heart rate and activities. This can all be logged each day through out my day as time permits. 

This is a part of my dashboard in my online account. I can check this out in a flash and see how my day is progressing. 
This is my sleep record for one day during this last week. It looks like I need to work on sleep. It's not as bad as you may think. My granddaughters have been visiting. Endless night time potty breaks and restlessness is the cause of this bad nights sleep. But this page does show you how well the Fitbit One tracks sleep.

These three screen clips are the logs for Blood Pressure, Glucose, and Heart rate. I have not started tracking these records but I hope to track my blood pressure and heart rate soon. 

This is one of the badges I have earned with my Fitbit One! I earned this badge this week. This is just the encouragement I need to keep on this awesome program. 

As you can tell by reading this post I really like my Fitbit One. This device is great and I can only think of a small change or two needed to make this an even greater product. The device is small and that makes it easy to forget that it is clipped to your belt or clothing. It is easy to forget the device and not move it onto a new change of clothing through out the day. If the Fitbit One could be set to beep or sound off during times of no activity. I might have a chance to realize I forgot to move the clip when I changed outfits. The Fitbit comes with a USB charging cord. The only problem I have is removing the device from the charging cord. 

Over all I love the Fitbit One. I plan to use it daily at least until I reach my weight loss goals.
What do you think? Have you been working on your health, fitness or weight loss? 


  1. Wow, I'm so impressed it does ALL those things! Congrats on the weight loss :-)

  2. I so need to check into this. My Hubs and I have just started a fitness program and this would be great to monitor some of it.

  3. Hi Bonnie, I'm off from blogging this week --but just wanted to stop by and say HI. That is neat that you can check out all of these neat products from Verizon. We have Verizon as our cellphone, home phone and Wifi service---but haven't jumped into the smart phone world yet..

    Glad the new product is helping you with your weight.. That's NEAT.


  4. I am really enjoying mine as well. I love how I can know at any point in my day what I still need to do to meet my fitness goals. I love watching my flower grow as I work toward my daily target.

  5. That is one cool gadget. Wish I could get one for my husband. Keep up your good work on staying fit and healthy.

  6. Wow what a cool gadget I'm trying to get a bit fitter so I must look into getting myself one thank you! x

  7. This looks really interesting. I love how it helps you keep on track!

  8. I have a Fitbit One and I LOVE it. It works far better than regular pedometers that I have tried in the past and it integrates with my favorite fitness app (MyFitnessPal). It is well worth the money. I recommend it to everyone I know.

  9. Interesting little devise there--wonder if my Mom would like it.

  10. Congrats to you for losing weight and finding something that works well for you. It looks like a great product. Keep it up!
