Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've been using my fitbug orb for a week tracking my steps and sleep and so far I'm very impressed. I sync it with my iPhone and use the included online membership. It was a little confusing to me at first since there isn't any info on the fitbug itself, but I found the instructions on the website very helpful. So far I've learned that I get a good quality of sleep, just not enough of it. I have been waking up between 4 and 10 times per night...it even tells me how long I was awake each time. I've also found the wristband does not seem accurate for counting steps. I think my arm motion is getting counted as steps. Wearing the clip on my waist seems much more accurate. Check out the fitbug website for more info. The included website membership really offers a lot. Really worth the money.
I recently purchased a Misfit Shine (review here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1596H04QRNZHJ/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm) and, for me, it was a complete dud being an Android user--particularly as someone who was looking to this as a tool to begin a life-style overhaul. Next up to try was the Fitbug ORB and I'm happy to say that I'm very pleased with this choice!
The unit itself it small and seems well-made, as do the belt clip and wrist strap. I've only worn it clipped to my underwear thus far, so I can't comment on the comfort of the wrist band or anything. Although, it seems like it should be very comfortable.
I have a newer Samsung Galaxy S4 and I found obtaining the app and getting synced up to be simple. No problems. The only hiccup really is that occasionally it doesn't want to connect immediately to bluetooth. Typically I either just have to be patient and wait another 20 seconds for it to connect or I just hit the button on the unit several times, which probably...
I ordered my Orb over the holidays and have been so happy with my purchase. It was easy to set up and it's even easier to use. This device counts my steps, calories burned, distance I've walked and my sleep movement. Because it syncs wirelessly i never have to worry about uploading my data and because it uses a battery I don't have to worry about charging it. This will be my go to gift for others this year!
