Do Fitbits really help?

Do Fitbits really help motivate people to be more active and make sure they exercise? I hear from a lot of people they get annoyed at their fitbits these days.

It depends on the person I would say. I have friends that say the Fitbit is really good for them and I have a sister who never uses her Fitbit anymore. It really depends on the person 🙂


I know for sure that Fitbits wouldnt help me. I’m a pretty disciplined person anyways so I know I make sure I exercise. Buying a FitBit would be a waste of money for me.

I was recommended a smart watch by my physio and so far I have had good results, managed to get my resting heart rate down a fair amount, though with the whole lockdown/pandemic I haven’t had much cause to go outside and I don’t really like having it on around the house!

Really need to try and get back into it again and start going outside!


Never did get one. But it was recommended that i get some form of step and health tracker that will allow me to understand the amount of calories i burn in my daily routine. And it ultimately did help out a lot.
There were also amazing motivational facts the kept me going like you’ve walked the total area pf the Vatican in one week, etc. 😂🙌

Yes it can but it all depends on you not on Fitbit as many people start exercise and often stopped in few weeks but if you are motivated to archive your health goals than Fitbits is defiantly good option as it encourage you to complete your tasks and often send reminder if you not moving.
