The Fitbit Charge is an activity tracker that wants you to compete with friends

Fitbit Charge

The funny thing about wanting to get into shape is that you have to want it. No diet or exercise regimen on Earth will matter if you can’t make yourself stick with it. Forming healthy habits and making sure you follow through is the only way to accomplish the goal of improving your health, but it does help when you have friends or family that are on the same path.

Fitbit is well-known for their activity trackers, and has a vast community of people wanting to improve themselves. If you think this sort of thing will help you achieve your goals, mainly to not drive you crazy with having to keep tabs on everything you do yourself, then have at the Fitbit Charge. This will track your steps, distance, how many floors you’ve climbed, and will monitor your sleep automatically. If you share a bed with someone else, then you’ll be happy to know that you can set silent alarms. Of course, that may lead to feeling phantom buzzing on your wrist randomly.

This will also let you see incoming calls on a bright OLED display that can last for 7-10 days on a single charge. It comes in large and small, but has a rather adjustable strap. You’ll be able to get this in black or slate (blue) for around $156. Thanks to their prestige, it will be easier to find online workout buddies through Fitbit, though having one in real life is a bit more fun. Everything you do will automatically sync to your phone, and you can track your progress.

Available for purchase on Firebox
