I have come across people who have raved about Fitbits, so I decided I wanted to discover what made them so special. I was curious about how they worked and what set a Fitbit apart from other devices including the Up and the iPhone. Is a Fitbit really worth the money? How is it able to count my steps? After doing my research I was able to answer these questions. Honestly, I am able to say that I believe a Fitbit is not worth the money because there are cheaper alternatives that are able to complete nearly the same tasks. However, I did find it interesting to learn how the Fitbit works to track movement.
