Meet the FitBit Flex 2! I’ve been falling for this chic, slim fitness tracker over the last week and I’m giving one away so that one lucky reader can fall for it just as hard as I have. This FitBit Flex 2 is an ultra slim, swim-proof fitness band with a removable tracker. The tracker fits into 3 interchangeable accessories- bands in different colours, bangles and pendants. With multiple ways to wear it, the FitBit Flex 2 can ‘fit’ into every part of your lifestyle from workout, to work to play. The jewellery options are seriously chic and elegant, coming in a choice of either gold or silver stainless steel plating. I’ve had a few people saying ‘there’s no way that’s a fitness tracker!’ when I’ve tapped my bangle or pendant to check on my step progress for the day.
All day activity and sleep tracking show you how your entire day adds up and SmartTrack™ automatic exercise recognition records your exercises for you. The FitBit Flex 2’s progress displays uses different colour LED lights to keep you connected to calls, texts and gives you Reminders to Move. Plus you don’t have to worry about it getting wet, whether you’re in the pool or running through the rain- but be advised to keep the jewellery away from moisture as much as possible and stick to the bands for activities and sport.
I love seeing visual progress for the day on the FitBit App, not just the activity, step and sleep tracking- but the water and weight trackers also help me a lot. These are manually entered but it helps to keep something as vital as hydration a priority. Another handy feature on the app is the ability to input different kinds of activity, I have a lot of joint issues which means my prefered exercise kind are low impact and usually come with a lower step count than say, running or HIIT and boot camp style workouts. The FitBit app lets me add pilates or yoga sessions and adds that to my calorie burn for the day. It also links to other apps – for instance, if I book into a yoga class using the MindBody app, that session is automatically added to my activity log for the day.
My FitBit has become a motivational fitness buddy on my wrist in the past week. Which brings me to talking about my actual fitness buddy who inspired me to get back into an active lifestyle about a year ago. Growing up I danced and when I had to stop that, I attended Pilates classes for at least 2 years but I’d lost my way a bit. Finding someone to work out with was a huge boost for me. We’d meet up 2 to 3 times a week for short workouts, chatted about nutrition and even managed to run a race for charity earlier this year! As a non-runner, this was pretty big for me. Between our busy schedules, my fitness buddy and I have been working out together less and less but she still inspires me daily. Which is why FitBit and I have asked you to share how your fitness buddy motives and inspires you to stay active to enter this competition. We’re giving away a FitBit Flex 2 with either a bangle or a pendant, and you have three opportunities to enter!
