Fitbug Orb offers great value for money for an activity tracker
There’s an app for just about everything these days, so when we talk about a device like the Fitbug Orb, it would certainly be quite an interesting topic. While there are dime a dozen of activity trackers that are already available in the market, the Fitbug Orb might stand out from the rest of the crowd in terms of value, wearability and personalized content. It is said to retail for less than half of what the likes of the Jawbone Up, Nike FuelBand SE and Fitbit Flex would cost, and yet offers some pretty decent performance that accompanies it.
We are talking about a $49.95 price tag for the Fitbug Orb, making it the most affordable, feature and service-rich tracker that is available at the moment. Specially designed to expand the health tracking trend without breaking the bank, the Fitbug Orb would be able to advise folks when it comes to achieving their fitness or weight loss goals by merging technology which tracks movement as well as sleep patterns, alongside KiK, a proprietary digital coach which will enable one to set, monitor and where necessary, actually prompt the wearer to act (mostly in a physical manner) to achieve their intended goals.
It will be different from wrist-bound activity trackers, as this discreet button-sized Fitbug Orb can be worn in a variety of ways to suit your existing style or social settings that you are involved in. It does not matter whether it is placed on a belt, wrist, or lanyard, or clipped on or beneath clothing, the Fitbug Orb is small and sophisticated enough to track a wealth of information that range from steps to aerobic steps/time, distance, calories burned, speed and even sleep.
Apart from that, there is also the Bluetooth Smart Orb which will synchronize such information to compatible mobile devices and the KiK digital coach platform. The free Fitbug app will play nice with iOS-powered and select Android-powered handsets, so you know what to do if you are running on Windows Phone or BlackBerry OS!
