Get Fit with Fitbit Flex

After giving birth to 3 kids, the amount of weight I have piled on over the years is quite a significant number. My lifestyle & eating habit have changed (I think majority of mothers out there probably will agree with me on this). Sad to say, I have been quite unproductive in my exercise regime and hardly find the time to hit the gym consistently to shed off those fats.

When I was approached to do a review for Fitbit, I was thinking to myself that probably this would be a good chance to encourage myself to exercise more and keep track of the amount of calories I have burnt in a day. Not a bad idea huh! I took up the challenge and amazed how many steps I have done for that past few days.

Fitbit is so user friendly that I downloaded the App from the Play Store on my mobile phone. It only took me a few minutes to set up everything.

Select the type of Fitbit model that you are using. For my case, I'm testing out the Fitbit Flex.

Fitbit Flex comes in various interchangeable bands to suit different colour clothing or mood of your day. The band is water resistant and each time you charge the tracker, the battery life will last for at least 5 days.

Some of the functions that Fitbit Flex can track on a daily basis are:
-Amount of steps
-Calories burnt
-Active minutes
-Monitor how long you sleep

Fitbit Flex can sync easily with my mobile phone when I turn on the bluetooth function. Everything will be reflected on the Fitbit App once I log into my account.

I also get to earn badges for each milestones I have hit.

It's not bulky and I can wear like an extra accessory on my wrist all the time.

It comes in 2 sizes (small and large) and it fit nicely on my kid's wrist too,

I realised that whenever I am wearing the product during office hour, I will make a conscious effort to walk more. At least it is a reminder to me that I should "walk more" and sit less in the office.

Lastly, the kind folks from Fitbit is giving away to 1 lucky winner:
1 x Fitbit Flex
1 x Trio Flex Accessory Wristbands Pack
(as shown in the picture above)

  10. I hope to win the Fitbit Flex so that I know how much energy I'm burning on a daily basis. Knowing how much energy I burn on average will help me watch my diet better - consume only what I need, not what I want! This will ensure I'm not overeating and I can stay healthy and fit!
