Ok. This challenge is too easy. I admit it. Next challenge will be a bit tougher for me. Something a little tougher than wearing a bracelet.
I think the greatest appeal of this device is its ability to motivate, accumulate, and synchronize.
Every week, the good people at Fitbit headquarters sit at their little computers and count how many steps I take, then they figure out how many miles that would be if I were walking in a straight line, and then they figure out how many floors I would have climbed had I been actually walking a flight of stairs, and then they calculate my average sleep time (I like to imagine there is this imaginary person in my bedroom with a stop watch), and then they figure out how many calories I’ve eaten vs. how many I’m allowed to eat. The good people at Fitbit headquarters crunch all my numbers and email me a summary of how I’ve done this week. Also, they let me know how I did amongst my friends on Fitbit. As previously stated, I’m always at the bottom.
Now…what am I going to do with these numbers? Am I striving for personal bests here? Is it just for my knowledge? Will I eventually unsubscribe from these weekly updates? Only time will tell. As of now, I like to see how I perform on a week to week basis. My number one goal is to rise up from the 4th position amongst my friends.
