Fitbit One makes it easier than ever to count steps taken, distance travelled and calories burned and also measures stairs climbed and sleep quality. The One’s new Silent Wake alarm gently vibrates when worn on the wrist to wake the person up without disturbing their husband/wife. This can be scheduled online from a computer or via a mobile dashboard.
New apps for iPhone and android devices have also been launched with the One working with both Windows and Apple operating systems. Additionally, improved social and motivational tools, which come as part of the free software from www.fitbit.com, mean people can also connect with friends through Facebook and Twitter and compete on a leaderboard that refreshes throughout the day.
The tracker syncs automatically to Fitbit’s new improved dashboard either through the app or wirelessly and automatically via a computer for deeper insight, food management and more information.
The small, sleek design fits comfortably in a pocket, bra or on a belt and is available with two colour options: black and burgundy. Fitbit One is sweat, rain and splash proof and has a brighter display for better reading in the day and at night. It also features a built in clock and displays motivational messages that keep the user on track to meet their goals.
The dashboard keeps people motivated to lead a healthier lifestyle by recording and setting goals for activity, logging food and sharing and competing with friends though a range of social messaging functions. Fitbit continues to integrate with other popular apps, like Endomondo and MyFitnessPal.
Fitbit One is available in major retailers such as Jumbo Electronics, Go Sports, Virgin Megastores, Beyond the Beach as well as all istyle stores.
Gareth Jones, VP and European General Manager for Fitbit, said, “Fitbit One is our latest all day tracker that helps people achieve health and fitness goals. With quality of sleep having such a key impact in our ability to keep fit and healthy, we’ve added new functionality, from more detail displayed about your sleep pattern, to the Silent Wake alarm to help you rise and shine.”
“Of course the Bluetooth Smart compatibility also means that we can offer real time motivation and updates. The One is designed for anyone not just sports enthusiasts, but people who might be looking to lose weight, get fitter, or simply be a bit more healthy. It is also designed to work across many platforms not tied to one particular operating system,” Jones added.
