FitBit literally changed my life, and I think there are lessons that we can
derive from that.
Does FitBit Portend To Future Fitness Implants?
Every morning when I get up, I’ll read the One’s display to see how long I slept.
Then I’ll reset it by holding down the button for a few seconds to let it know I’m
done sleeping. After that I jump on the Aria scale, which, as anyone know who’s
trying to lose a few pounds like me, can be an “interesting” experience. Aria tells
me my weight and BMI and then syncs directly with the cloud.
After getting dressed, I’ll make sure I pop the One into my pocket. I have goals
setup for steps, so, like checking a smartphone for social media updates, I’m
constantly checking the One’s tiny display to see where I am during the day with my
number of steps and derived calories. If I haven’t met my goals, I will literally
change what I’m doing. I’ll take the stairs more. I’ll walk to something versus
driving. I’ll take the long way instead of the short-cut. At the airport, I’ll walk
versus taking the people movers.
