I think the new Fitbit Zip is the best pedometer / walking tracker out there right now.
- You don’t have to charge it (the battery lasts 4-6 months, and is replaceable)
- It automatically syncs with your phone and the web without having to plug it in to anything. You don’t even need to open the app, or press a button anywhere! (requires at least an iPhone 4S)
- It has a great website and API so it integrates with lots of other things
- It can be used as a KEYCHAIN! (so it’ll always be in your pocket)
It’s better than an iPhone app because all of those run your battery down, and therefore can’t be on all the time.
It’s better than the full-featured Fitbit or Nike FuelBand because every time you have to charge it or sync it or upgrade the software is a chance that it’ll get left behind, run out of charge, or get lost.
The best pedometer is the one that’s always with you.
You should get one. And friend me.
