Does anyone here use Fitbit?  I am interested in buying one and I would like to know which one is the best model. 

Can it be used by more than one person in the family?

Is there any cost after the initial purchase?

Hi Carol Sue,

I have one. There are several models out now. I just hook mine to my bra or my undies. There is no cost once you purchase it but they do offer some additional programs. I register in my sleep as that is an issue with diabetics. You also can add in your blood sugar and you will see a report. Once a week it sends you a report about how you had done for the previous week. I find it to be more accurate than any other pedometer that I have used. Cheryl also has one and so does one of the other regulars around here. You can link up with friends and encourage each other that way. Cheryl, Nancy and I are linked together. I think it is well worth the price.

Hi! I am siting here with my Fitbit on my pjs! lol I wear it 24/7. The one, Mary Frances, Nancy and I have is the older version of the One. (we have the Ultra). When I need to I will buy a new One to replace mine. The company has been great about backing their products and standing behind them. I can't say enough good things about them!!! Each member of the family must have their own Fitbit and Fitbit account. The account is free! I highly recomend the Fitbit!!! Smile Did you decide to get one? For Christmas?
