The Fitbit Flex is a slim and stylish fitness tracker that can track your steps, distance, calories burned, and active minutes. You can also monitor how long and well you sleep during the night and it can wake you up by a silent vibrating alarm that will not bother your partner one bit when it goes off.
When using the Fitbit Flex, there are 5 LED lights that will light up like a scoreboard, it will show you how your day is stacking up against your goals.
With the Led light, the Fitbit Flex is preset to display your progress of steps taken throughout your day. You can activate the light by giving the Flex a solid tap right under the display panel.
Each Dot represents 20% of your your goal, if your goal is set to take 10,000 steps in a day, right when you start stepping, the first light will start blinking until you reach 2,000 steps then the second light will start up and so on and so forth.
As soon as midnight hits, the Flex will restart your step count. You can see the total number of steps you took on the Fitbit App.
The Flex is water-resistant. I have taken showers with it and it came out just fine. It lasts up to 5 days before needing a good recharge. It syncs to computers and 150+ smart phones so you can access your stats anywhere and see your progress in charts and graphs.
The Fitbit Flex is a slim fitness tracker and feels like you are just wearing a regular bracelet, it’s not bulky like most fitness trackers out there.
The great thing about the Flex is that it has so many changeable bands that you can have one color for everyday of the week.
When working out with the Fitbit Flex, it’s barley noticeable because it is snug on your wrist and sits really comfortable.
One of the reasons why I didn’t give a great rating for the Flex is I like to see an actual screen on my trackers because some things I would want to see right away, like my step count or calories burnt without looking at my phone all the time. If you don’t care looking at your phone and have the patience to wait for your results, then you’ll be well off with the Fitbit Flex.
For a little more money, you can upgrade to the Fitbit Charge that has a screen that could give your stats throughout the day.
The Fitbit Flex ranges around $78-$99.95. Is this pricy? To me yes, I only say that because there are fitness trackers out there that run for the same amount but have screens and can track the same things, like the Garmin Vivosmart.
A thing that is great about the Fitbit Flex is, that it’s built tough and it has the Fitbit App that backs it up. This helps out a lot because it is filled with so many graphs, charts and tools, and it is designed to help you track your progress and health.
Some of the other apps out there for fitness trackers aren’t really up to speed yet.
