    As most of us feel, I need to get more exercise. Some of my friends have the fitbit and really feel inspired by it to do more exercise. Thought I would try it too.

    Some thoughts...
    • if you want to be discrete.... consider the Fitbit One. Works great when you have pockets too.
    • have heard about the new charge HR that also monitors your heart rate?
    • I'm looking forward to the surge.

    Thanks. Found 2 good options for this.

    1) ebates.ca offered 15% cashback from Shop.ca

    2) ebates.ca offered 2% cash back from the Source.ca and I found a code for $20 off wus $100 so double win. I took this deal. $20 in the pocket is always better.
    Just in case anyone is interested the code was Airmiles100 and is good until Jan. 31/15

    @chillys-willy , I checked my employee benefits and the employee assistance program has a fitness coach that calls you. Well, after the call, the coach said, where do you want us to mail your Fit Bit - home or work. It's the one worth $59. Check to see if your human resources department has any benefits that would let you get a free Fit Bit.

    I have seen the fitbit flex on sale for $79 recently.

    However the newer one (Fitbit Charge) tells you the time, calories, steps instantly without having to check your device that has the app ie iphone.

    We have that program at my work too. I got my FitBit Zip last July and have been wearing it faithfully. I've had to change the battery in it a couple times, and last week it went and died on me. But I contacted Fitbit support, they are sending me a new one! So happy, I miss the thing. I use My Fitness Pal for tracking food, and it integrates with that.
