One strong competitor and even more known fitness tracking device is the Fitbit Ultra. It comes for only $99.95 and is, thanks to its size and clip, very comfortable to wear in your pocket, waist or bra. As the Nike+ FuelBand fitness tracker the Fitbit Ultra accurately tracks your steps, calories burned and the time. Beyond that it tracks the distance you walked, how many floors or hills you climbed throughout the day and even works as a stopwatch. On top you can wear it while you sleep to demystify your sleep cycle. Over time, you know your sleep pattern, which helps to determine the best time to get up.
I’ve used the Fitbit Ultra one-month exclusive and didn’t touch my beloved Nike+ FuelBand. First I felt a little bored, because I was used to the aestehtic interface of the FuelBand wristband, but after one week I saw the advantages. It’s more than steps and calories burned. Distance, stair tracking and of course the sleep tracker are game changers! They fulfill the product and provide additional value.
The Fitbit Ultra is lightweight and small, comfortable to wear, affordable, accurate and interactive. As the Nike+ FuelBand it sync wirelessly with the Fitbit.com web application and you can share your success with friends. You can also join public groups to ask questions and get advice from people with similar fitness goals. Furthermore you can logging individual foods and workouts with the web application or the free iPhone and Android app. This is a huge advantage over the FuelBand and the thing I like most – the Fitbit Ultra is developed further.
The Fitbit Ultra is an amazing fitness tracker, which can connected with an excellent web application. If you want to be more active and to becoming more healthy, or need more motivation for your workout routines, you should consider to buy the Fitbit Ultra or the Nike+ FuelBand. I’ve used both and now I tend to stick with the Fitbit, because I love the described additional features.
