This has been a great product thus far. This is way more accurate than my fuel band & galaxy watch. Though the galaxy has a camera and other function, it isnt as great. I've ordered the pebble to try but has not come in yet. People have complained about it not being the shape of their wrist... I dont know what odd shape they have but it fits perfectly and it has a flexi-band so im not sure what the problem is. Its was a little tough to initially put on but the point is to keep it on an not lose it. I keep it on all the time, in the shower, during the day & while sleeping. The sleeping monitor has been really helpful because in days i feel really stressed out, it really helps me track my sleeping patterns which i can check the day after. I also find the alarm very useful. It is a more powerful vibrate than i expected but it definitely wakes me up when i snooze my phone. This band has truly been great thus far but i do have a few complaints.

This sync up with with my smart phone which is more convenient than plugging in the dongle which is a bit annoying. I have a mac so i have limited USB ports as it is. I also wished that the watch had a constant display of the time instead of me having to push for the time. The stairs climbing portion of it is not very accurate. I will go up and down multiple flights of stairs at the courthouse and it would only track one flight of stairs. Overall, I have found the force very useful and motivating when i keep track of the miles i run daily. Def. recommend for someone who wants to work on their workout habits.

Received this on Monday, synced it to my computer and put it on. Immediately noticed it didn't record stairs unless I was pumping my arms to go up. Each time I carried things upstairs it didn't register. Also moving arms created an increase in step counts. Sleep is only tracked if you press the button a certain way to start the sleep timer and press it again when you wake up OR you manually record sleep. So it will track your sleep, but it is entirely manual - not automatic as I was led to believe. It was definitely motivating me to run around, go up stairs and try to see what would record as active minutes. Really liked the features. Liked getting email badges saying I was doing great. Did over 15,000 steps first day - but that included shoveling the driveway which really recorded steps quite poorly.

Worst problem is the clasp. First night, fell off while sleeping. Second morning fell off again. I watched video on how to put it on and it stayed on for rest of second day while I was home. Third day, put it on and it stayed on at home for several hours, then I went shopping. Well - lost the tracker in the first store. Not sure how/where, but assume my jacket, pockets, purse or just things I was carrying knocked it and it fell off. Since it feels like rubber, it didn't make any noise as it dropped to the ground. I hate losing $140 (tax included). NO GPS on the unit to help locate it, and my phone never came within 15-20 feet to identify where it was.
Customer service was no help. I'm sure they know the problem as email reply wanted me to tell them all the facts about why it feel off, how I was wearing it, where it fell off, was I wearing long sleeves, etc.

Awesome Fitbit Force and iPhone app

By lisbr775

from Reno, NV

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I love all the features on the fit bit's readout. The iPhone app is very easy to use and the online graphs are amazing. The only thing I would change is to put a latch on the band so it doesn't come off if it catches on something.

        poor customer support

        By Redtop

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Was excited to use the fitbit force. After a little difficulty in setting up, I got it going and thought I would love it. The unit itself works fine, but has difficulty syncing with my phone and ipad. The website is poor, took hours of reading to find possible solutions. Those solutions didn't work. Can't find a number on the website to talk to customer support.

                    The difference between what I think I do, and what I Really do is the device's strong point. Not quite the fashion statement, but really a useful device tied to their scale and the app.

                    Very comfortable and seems to be very accurate. I really enjoy the fact that it interfaces with MyFitnessPall. which I have use for awhile tracking my food intake. I appreciate the web interface and its easy use to program alarms and view history.

                          Best Uses

                            I like that it tells me when I reach a milestone; for example, the 10,000, 25,000 steps alerts, or going up/down stairs. I also like to be able to track my performance on line, or that I can set up a wake-up alarm, but it's very difficult to turn on, or to tell it I'm going to sleep. I would like to return it ans see if something is physically wrong with the on/off feature.

                            • Works With Food Apps

                            I've had the Force for 2 weeks and like it. My biggest problem is properly securing the band. If you don't get it closed correctly it falls off. It took awhile but I finally figured it out so I'm not having a problem now.

                            Set up required multiple tries but I finally got it registered on the FitBit web site.

                            I wish there had been more documentation in the package. The only documentation is on the web site.
