Everything you need to know about Fitbit

Using technology to try and improve your fitness is becoming more and more common these days. There are a variety of devices available, however one of the lower cost and simpler to use options is a fitness tracker. These trackers are coming from a variety of well known companies such as Jawbone, Nike, Garmin and even Samsung. They are also coming from some newer companies such as Misfit Wearables.

But while wearables, and fitness trackers in particular, may be somewhat of a new trend -- there is one company that seems to have a slight edge in terms of name recognition. That company is Fitbit, and despite this all being a new trend, they have already been around for more than a few years.

MobileFit month is well underway here at Mobile Nations and as part of this months coverage, we've already covered such topics as why you should buy a fitness tracker, and some of the problems surrounding fitness trackers. Up now is a bit of a deeper look at Fitbit and the variety of items that are connected to the name both by hardware and software. Yes, this all goes beyond simply wearing a step counter.

Why you should buy a fitness tracker

It's #MobileFit Month here at Mobile Nations, and that means we're looking at all of the best devices to get you fit and healthy. A big part of that group is of course, fitness trackers.

There are people who like to exercise and those who avoid exercise at all costs. The exercising group may be more willing to strap on a fitness tracker, however we'd argue that those who avoid exercise are the ones that would benefit much more. In fact, it seems the non-exercising group are the ones that should consider buying a fitness tracker.

The Fitbit channel on IFTTT lets you automate based on your activity

One of the leading fitness bands out there, Fitbit, now plugs into the service that plugs into everything else, IFTTT. Between these two, you can set up handy if-this-then-that tasks that automagically kick in with the right triggers. New Fitbit triggers include daily activity summary, daily goals achieved (steps, distance, calorie burn, etc.), and sleep data. On the action side, outside applications can now log heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose, and weight from connected channels into the Fitbit service. Examples of IFTTT recipes include sending you an iOS notification if you don't meet your daily exercise goal, or logging sleep data in a Google Docs spreadsheet.

Best fitness tracker: Fitbit Flex vs Jawbone UP24 vs Nike FuelBand SE vs Garmin vivofit!

Fitness trackers are all the rage for people who want to get in shape, drop some weight, and stay healthy. Slap one on your wrist, download an app to your iPhone, and start tracking your progress. Simple as that. Unfortunately the process of selecting a fitness band isn't as easy. They aren't cheap and they aren't all created equal. That's why I've taken an in-depth look at the most popular offerings from Fitbit, Jawbone, Nike, and Garmin to help you decide exactly which one is right for you.
