My DD wants a Fit Bit for Christmas. I've noticed that there's a $59 one and $99 + ones. She mentioned to friends that she wants one "and they're only $60". I didn't see much fifference between the two of them. If the $99 did a lot more, then I'd go for that one. Can anyone tell me their thoughts and is there a big difference? She's 31 years old if that matters. Thanks

I have the FitBit Zip. It is the $59 one. It tracks steps, calories burned, distance walked, etc. The FitBit One is the $99 one. It tracks all of that plus your sleep - how long, how well, etc.

For us, it wasn't worth paying nearly 2x as much.


For me, the thing that makes it work is that several of our friends have FitBits. We are in a group and can compete or encourage each other daily. No one wants to be the person with the least steps! If your DD doesn't know anyone, there are online groups she can join (like here)
If we weren't in this group with our friends, I might have just gotten a plain pedometer.

I have the Ultra and LOVE it. I paid 89 for mine on Amazon. My husband and I both have them and they have really motivated us to be more active and he's lost a lot of weight, less so for me.

ETA: Once you buy it, the tracking is free. You do not have to buy a subscription or anything like that.

what does the Ultra do that the $59 doesn't? I don't even see the Ultra on Amazon.

I have the Fitbit One ($99)...it tracks steps, stairs, distance, calories burned, plus sleep, silent wake alarm, and it is rechargeable. The zip is not rechargeable (uses battery), and doesn't have the stair tracker, sleep cycles and alarm. The Ultra has been discontinued.

Thank you all for your help. I went to the store and they basically made the decision for me. They only had the $59 ones left so that's what I got!!! Thanks again!
