Fitbit is as easy to use as ever, but the features added to the second generation are too gimmicky to help justify that $100 price tag.

The $99.95 Fitbit Ultra offers the same great features and engaging backend analytical tools that the original model did. Admittedly, though, it's not as fancy as higher-priced devices like the $149 Nike FuelBand and Motorola MotoActv that can sync wirelessly directly to iPhones and Android...

Fitbit Ultra is a sleek, sturdy, and affordable device that can help you monitor your general physical activity level. It's meant for casual users, not serious athletes.

If you’re a hardcore runner, biker, luger, or anything else, this is probably not the best device. A sports watch with GPS and heart-rate monitor would be far superior.

If you know that you are an active person already, then you probably don't need the Fitbit Ultra. If, however, you are on the cusp of changing your lifestyle, and getting up off the sofa, then this could just be the kickstart you need.

The reason I like the Fitbit, after all, is that it's unobtrusive and I don't have to physically enter information on a small device or start and stop an app.

In case it was not clear: we couldn’t be happier with the FitBit Ultra. It has encouraged and nudged us towards a more active, and healthy, lifestyle.

The Fitbit is a great fitness accessory, but this will require you to remember to use it daily, and to hold yourself accountable to trying to do better ... If you are serious about your health, and need a little extra boost to help you achieve your results, this is a great addition for you.

The fitbit is overall a great device. The biggest problem for me is that I forget to put it on in the morning because its so small.

I've had the fitbit for about two weeks now, have played soccer with it, used it to track my training for an upcoming half marathon, and so far I've had no problems, and it's worked flawlessly.

I really like this device and after using it for 3 months, along with their website for calorie tracking (free) I have managed to lose 5.6kg. It is easy to use and the scoring makes it a sort of game for me which of course is very motivational.

I love this product and have been using it for over a year now. With this device as a tool along with the company's free website, I have been motivated enough to lose over 20 pounds now. It helps quantify my activity level every day and it motivates me to do better because i can compete with...

I have nothing but great things to say about my Fitbit. I've been using it for 6 months or so now and I feel naked if I ever forget it. Though I wish is that it could sync with my phone instead of needing the dock and would charge off of my movement.

My only complaint about the FitBit Ultra is that it will not sync to my iPhone/iPad or Mac via Bluetooth. I have to use the FitBit dock. The newer FitBits solve this so it is a bit disappointing. That said, love this device. It is a must have for those who want to keep track of how much they...

Sadly very easy to lose. I'm now on my second one. Very easy to use, superior food tracking to the Up (even though the food database is a little lacking) and the dashboard is a one-stop shop.
