It's my Dp's birthday Thursday. He mentioned in passing wanting a FitBit. However, having a quick browse I am at a loss of which one to choose? The Surge looks good.....any suggestions? Ideally I want something that has a it of everything. Dp hasn't exercised in a while. Previously enjoyed weights.

I have a Flex, I'm getting on well with it. The stats etc. are the same for all FitBit products, the differences are in what you choose to measure and how often you can charge/change batteries.

My Flex broke and now I have a One. I prefer the One as it has more info on the tracker and it clips on: I didn't like the tan lines the Flex left on my wrist and I had to take it on and off at work. The Surge looks good though.

I have a charge HR and love it! The stats are great, and it synchs with MFP so I can track food too. I find it really encouraging.

Make sure it is big enough -I like mine quite loose and the strap on the small is onlt just long enough.

I have a Zip and really like it. It's the basic model but does everything that I need!

I have the one and dh has the flax. I much prefer the one cos you can clip it on and it's not visible. The flex isn't ugly or anything, but I'd personally rather not have it on display the whole time. Plus dh is now on his 3rd replacement strap while in 1.5 years my original one holder is still perfect.

my one also syncs with mfp btw. The flex doesn't have and altimeter while the one does. I like that point.

Thank you all for your advice and suggestions. I think I will go with the Flex!

Hi I have the Fitbit charge new today. How do I get it to display my stats on the Fitbit? When I press the on button it just gives me the time?

Also, how do I make it buzz me to tell me I have been sitting still too long?

Get the Fitbit app, it connects to the Fitbit via wifi and syncs the stats across devices.

Not wifi, Bluetooth
