For the past 5 days, along with my fellow ClassPass Ambassadors, I’ve been tracking my steps, fitness and sleep via a FitBit Charge. As someone who loves data, it’s been fun to try it out!


FitBit is probably most commonly known for tracking steps … but it tracks so much more. Also, I had no clue how many steps I take in an average day. And when I reach my 10K goal, the watch vibrates and more than once, I’ve stopped and cheered for myself.

I had no idea that I covered 4-5 miles during the average weekday just getting to/from the office and workouts and walking from meeting to meeting. None of these days includes a run, because I haven’t gone for a run since … January 2nd. Oops.

I’m really loving the sleep data. Not just how many hours I get each night, but how often I’m “restless.” And my FitBit has been shaming me into taking the stairs when I might have taken the elevator. Sometimes.


In addition to the steps and distance automatically tracked, you can add additional exercise as well and it adds those calories (although I might be double counting since it still tracks my steps during those exercises). You can also add your friends and track their progress as well … and challenge them!

And best of all … I’m giving away a FitBit Flex to one of you!!
