These days, getting fit always seems to involve hard-ass fitness junkies screaming at you to carry a tire up a sand dune, or simply reminds you of the overpriced (and underused) gym membership you bought as a new year’s resolution. If only there was an easier way…
Well thanks to the Fitbit Flex now you can take a trainer, dietician, lifestyle coach and motivational guru and strap them to your wrist. They’ll even watch over you while you sleep.
The integrated accelerometer keeps track of your activity, and lets you log in food goals, calories burned and sheep counted (well, hours slept at least), all in one sleek, stylish, waterproof wristband.
Utilising Bluetooth 4.0 the Fitbit Flex will automatically synch with the iPhone or Android App to help you monitor all the vital statistics and provide advice and encouragement 24/7.
