You think you have problems? I’m lopsided. It would appear that my right arm has taken 1,717 steps this morning, while my left arm has only taken 1,520. For the last few days I was thinking that either the Fitbit Charge or the Microsoft Band was more accurate than the other… but I couldn’t figure … Continue reading The Bands: Who should I believe?
Had you asked me last night which device was winning, it was a pretty easy call… I am really loving the Microsoft Band 2. So when I went to bed and turned out the light, I was happy to click the appropriate buttons to set my Sleep cycle… which was really easy to learn on … Continue reading The Bands: Battery Fail!
On Monday I published my first article in the “Battle of the Bands” series between the Microsoft Band (left hand) and the Fitbit Charge (right hand). Yesterday I spoke about my first impressions, and the Microsoft Band seemed to be ahead. Today’s piece – connected applications – weighs heavily in Fitbit’s favour. I have been … Continue reading The Bands: Compatible Systems
On Monday I published my article announcing that I was going to spend a month wearing two fitness bands: The Fitbit Charge (on my right hand) and the Microsoft Band 2 (on my left hand). In truth I picked them both up and started wearing them on Saturday, so as I sit here (Monday evening) … Continue reading The Bands: First Impressions
Are you looking forward to the show? Do you want to rock? Yeah? Well… then you’ve come to the wrong place. Battle of the Bands is not going to be about music… it is going to be about wearable fitness devices. Once upon a time, a long long time ago (say… 2010) I bought a … Continue reading Battle of the Bands

Today is the first day since I started back on exercise – walking for now, until I lose weight – that the FitBit dashboard was entirely green. Woohoo! Hope for a lot more of these. I went for a nice walk in Minneapolis today (Okay, Plymouth, MN)… nearly 5 miles, and it was 90 degrees … Continue reading First ALL GREEN DAY!
Today I received an e-mail from a friend who congratulated me on my progress and my new FitBit Blog, and asked me several questions about the FitBit. As I usually do for e-mails of this sort (although usually of a technical nature), I decided to answer her in a blog article. My friend says that … Continue reading My FitBit Experience: Answering a friend’s questions
Many of you probably know that I am overweight… but like my wife likes to say, I am a slim man trapped in a fat man’s body. I am pretty active – I worked hard to earn my Black Belt in Taekwondo two years ago, and am currently in training hoping to test for my … Continue reading …and I WILL Walk 500 More!
