Here is one of the many reasons why I love my FitBit so much. The Weekly Stats that they send out each Tuesday Morning (or at least mine come on Tuesday, but I might have set it up on a Tuesday, so your day may vary).
With this email, it means I don't have to personally keep up with my weekly counts on paper, nor do I have to go into my FitBit Dashboard and look.
As you can see I am in third place compared to two of my friends that have FitBits. This information keeps me motivated to "outstep" them, which hasn't happened yet, but I have moved up my friendship leaderboard.
Ok I am off on the fifth grade field trip to Starbase Swamp Fox! :-)
PS I am in no way compensated to brag on my FitBit. I bought mine fair and square last May. It's been replaced by FitBit customer service once due to a hardware upgrade malfunction, but since then it has worked like a charm! And when that happened, they replaced it without for free, I didn't even have to send them back the broken one!
