How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

This basic version of the Fitbit fitness tracker won't tell you how well you've slept, and can't track your performance on a Stairmaster. But if you just need a device that will track your steps and calories burned, and can sync wirelessly with Fitbit's website and smartphone apps, the Zip is a good choice at a great price. If you want something more advanced, consider the gdgt Must-have Fitbit Ultra -- or wait for the Fitbit One, due out next month.
