I love mine and just having it is a form of competition just trying to beat the day before or hit your goals.

I REALLY enjoyed having it at DLR and seeing how much I really can do if I put my mind to it.

Just keep it out of the washing machine. It does NOT like water.

Do the fitbits measure steps taken only or do they also calculate distance?

The fitbit ultra measures number of steps taken, calories burned, distance (miles), flights of stairs. It has a event button that will measure your sleep or give you min by min of an event (like if you go out running). It IS NOT waterproof and some people have killed their fitbit by sweating or putting it in the washing machine by accident.

They just came out with a ZIP that measures just distance, calories and steps and runs on a watch battery. And they are coming out with a Fitbit ONE that is more water tolerant. THe one can be preordered now for a late October delivery.

I would probably wait until october and get the ONE if you can wait it is the next generation and the more water tolerant but still not waterPROOF. And the new one can sync with your iphone.
