Fitbit Activity Monitor

The Fitbit is like a pedometer on steroids.  You clip it to your clothes and it counts your steps, records distance traveled, and counts calories burned.  The best part… it even counts how inactive you are by recording how long you sleep, etc.  When you get close to the base station it will upload the data for detailed analysis.

More details and video after the break.

The Fitbit accurately tracks your calories burned, steps taken, distance traveled and sleep quality. The Fitbit contains a 3D motion sensor like the one found in the Nintendo Wii. The Fitbit tracks your motion in three dimensions and converts this into useful information about your daily activities.

You can wear the Fitbit on your waist, in your pocket or on undergarments. At night, you can wear the Fitbit clipped to the included wristband in order to track your sleep. Anytime you walk by the included wireless base station, data from your Fitbit is silently uploaded in the background to

    Thanks for this article, very interesting. I did a lot of research before I bought a system for my geocaching. It is such a relaxing hobby. What receiver do you use?
