3 Ways: Use Your Fitbit To Be More Active The Fitbit activity tracker is a great way to gain a complete understanding of your health and fitness. With its multiple capabilities such as movement tracking, calorie tracking, mileage logs, goal setting, sleep evaluation, and more, the Fitbit is one of the most well-rounded fitness tools on the market. Users of Fitbit increase their activity by 30-40%, so it must work! However, as with most tech-savvy gadgets, there are likely more ways to use your Fitbit to maximize your health and fitness than you’re already doing. Try these three Fitbit features this week and take notice of how much more you move throughout the next few days. Remember, small and frequent changes add up to great strides towards your health and fitness goals! 1. Account for your calories in. While the Fitbit can’t automatically record how many calories are going in your body, as it does with how many calories you’re burning by moving, it does have the ability to be paired with the nutrition tracking of myfitnesspal . By recording what you eat and drink throughout the day on My Fitness Pal’s app or website, you can get feedback from your Fitbit regarding how much activity you need to outweigh what you put in. For example, if you eat 100 calories worth of snacks, the Fitbit will update your daily movement goals to account for that. 2. Compete with friends. You can become “friends” with coworkers and friends that use Fitbit, too. By adding them to your inner circle on the Fitbit website, you can view where your friends are with their daily goals. Motivate, congratulate, and compete with your comrades as you all work towards your goals. A little friendly competition can motivate you to move more. In addition, making close friends aware of your goals makes you more likely to stick with them. There is strength in numbers! 3. Observe your patterns. When you view your dashboard on Fit Bit’s website, you can observe the times in your day when you are most and least active. What is the trend in those inactive moments? Making yourself aware of your habits and patterns can help you increase your amount of daily activity, calorie burn, and progress towards your goals.
