The Fitbit One adds a number of welcome features to our favorite fitness tracker, including Bluetooth iPhone syncing, better water resistance, and a vibrating alarm that can wake you if you're using your Fitbit as a sleep monitor. The updates "enhance what was already a stellar product," according to PCMag, which calls the One a "super-smart pedometer" that "automates the hard work of keeping track of your overall fitness." Compared to the less-expensive Fitbit Zip, the One is "definitely worth the premium" according to TechCrunch, which calls the One "wonderful choice" if you want "a neat (and unabashedly geeky) way to keep tabs on how active you are."

The Fitbit One is a sleek, sturdy, and affordable device that can help you monitor your physical activity and motivate you to increase it. It's the best fitness gadget on the market for non-athletes.

If you’re looking for a neat (and unabashedly geeky) way to keep tabs on how active you are, the Fitbit One is a wonderful choice — as long as you don’t mind keeping track of all those accessories.

Should You Buy It? If you're considering the Fitbit Zip, then sure. It's certainly better, due to the altimeter, improved screen, and recharability. And the silent alarm is a cool feature. It's also $40 more, but the $40 is worth it for the added functionality. And it's $50 less than the Fuelband.

The Fitbit One is a feature-rich pedometer, but the wristband-style Jawbone Up and Fitbit’s own Flex are more convenient and much better deals.

The Fitbit One's new sleek design and brighter screen are both welcome improvements and the built-in silent alarm is an excellent addition. The One remains a little expensive but there's no doubting it's a great motivational tool that quickly becomes addictive.

The Fitbit One is not a fool proof tracker – it’s definitely not extremely accurate, but it gets the job done. Regardless, at the end of the day, even if you’re not a fitness buff, you’re going to find the device’s tracking features to be quite fun and addictive.

The Fitbit One is without a doubt one of the most versatile and useful fitness gadgets on the market. It's also fairly expensive.

It offers better access to your fitness data, as well as a few more helpful features. It’s also the best fitness gadget option for people who just hate wearing things on their wrists (that’s a bigger group than you may think).

The Fitbit One makes some minor alterations that are by no means revolutionary, but they are enough to still make it one of the most impressive fitness tracking devices out there.

As it stands, while it doesn't score a perfect score on every advertised feature, we think the Fitbit One is one activity tracker that's worth test driving if you're looking to get motivated in your daily fitness oriented lifestyle.

I recommend Fitbit One for those of us who want to lose weight, as it has good integration of the food diary and tracking your calories in/calories out throughout the day, especially using your iPhone.

But if you want to go from couch potato to someone who walks regularly, want to see the real difference between walking the stairs and riding the escalator, or between getting off the bus or tube a stop early and walking, then the Fitbit One is a great helper, and the ease of use and simplicity make...

If you've already bought into the Fitbit ecosystem with an Ultra or earlier Fitbit and you have a Bluetooth Smart compatible smartphone (iOS only for now; Android coming when Google opens up the APIs), the upgrade to One is a no-brainer. Syncing on the go is automatic and painless. It's nice to...

I am very pleased with this device so far. I have had it for less than two weeks and have only had to charge it once so far. I am using it in conjunction with my iPhone 4S and it syncs quickly and without issue. The background sync (optional) will update the app (and Fitbit website and any...

I like the fact that you carry it elsewhere as apposed to wearing it on your wrist. Seems really accurate for what I do.

I really like the FitBit One. It's the only fitness data tracker that also tracks sleep. The website that FitBit syncs to is pretty great, although sometimes it is hard to get an accurate sync. Setting up the FitBit was kind of a pain, but once I got it set up it works like a dream. I have had to...

There are some annoyances - putting it into sleep mode is a pain. It goes into sleep model accidentally all the time. You can delete accidental sleeping, but you have to go into the website to do that. It's also annoying to switch between the clip and the sleep band. But it becomes a habit...

This is a well designed activity tracker. It is not bulky which helps it stay out of the way and out of mind. Coupled with the fitbit profile (and I have the fitbit Aria) it gives a useful daily profile of how my activity and fitness progresses.

I'm happy with the product, the web app and the iPhone app. The only downside is it's easy to loose and not water proof. Still waiting to see what Apple does in this space.
