What is a Fitbit?

The Fitbit is the Cadillac of pedometers. It will track your step counts, your elevation gain, sleep patterns and (allegedly) it might even tie your shoelaces for you!

Smarter fitness made simple

Okay, maybe they won't tie your shoelaces, but they do make awesome pedometers. The Fitbits are rainproof, sweat-proof and splash-proof—not a small concern if you're out walking in inclement weather. And they all use tri-axis technology which means you slip the pedometer into a pocket and forget about it for the rest of the day. Some Fitbit models can also track the amount of elevation gain you've climbed and monitor your sleep patterns for a more complete picture of your health, all of which can be uploaded wirelessly to the Fitbit website automatically.
