Disclosure: I was given the Fitbit Flex from Verizon featured in this post to try out for my review as part of the #VZWBloggerProgram. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.
My goal this year was to lose some weight and be healthy. By doing that, I am using the Verizon Fitbit Flex Tracker. It is a wireless wristband that tracks you physical activity and sleep while you have the wristband on. There are many times where I am at the gym working out and wonder how many calories I burn. With the comfortable Fitbit Flex, it keeps track of my steps, distance, calories burned, and the minutes I have been active. This makes it easy to for me to track the calories I burn during each workout.
How is Works:
- Download the Fitbit App thru your Android or IOS device.
- Sync your Fit Bit Flex wristband to the app.
- Enter in your settings on the app such as weight, height, etc.
- Wear you wristband all day even when you sleep.
- Check your progress on your phone or computer.
It is important for me to get a good night’s sleep as I need to get up and get the kids off to school, go to my full-time office job, and be awake to share valuable information to all of you. While wearing the Fitbit Flex Wristband at night, I could barely feel it because it is lightweight and made out of a rubbery like material so it didn’t scratch or pinch me. It kept track of how many hours I slept and what my sleep quality was. It also told me how many times I have been woken up. This was good to keep track of because my family wakes me up several times thru the night and helped me wonder why I was not getting enough sleep.
If you use other weight loss apps, Fitbit Flex plays well with other apps meaning you can export the Fitbit data right into the other app such as My Fitness Pal, Lose It!, and more. I use My Fitness Pal and found this to be quite helpful to add my activity from my wristband to the My Fitness Pal App.
There are so many other features and benefits with the Fitbit Flex Wristband to lead a healthy life. Head on over here to read more about the Verizon Fitbit Flex.
