I’ve been a fan of the stylish Fitbit since before it was born, stalking the blog where the founders talked about building a little gadget from scratch, and I believe I pre-ordered one well over a year before it was available.
Their little pedometer is actually fun to carry around, and whenever I show it to someone they’re like “Oooh, I want one!” Who knows how many I’ve sold that way.
I have been interested in integrating the walking data into Health Month for a long time, and I’m finally able to say that it’s live! Here’s what you need to do.
Step one. GET A FITBIT! $99, free shipping, coolest little gadget ever.
Step two. Link up your Fitbit to Health Month from your “Edit Account” page.
Step three. Add either the “Walk” rule or the “Walk X Steps” rule to your next month’s rules.
Step four. There is no step four! From then on, when you fill out your activities for the month, it will automatically fill in your information based on your Fitbit activity. Like so:
Pretty neat, right?
Please give it a shot, let me know what you think about it. I’ve also got a Health Month group over on the Fitbit website if you want to try out some reverse integration as well.
As you can tell, I have a bit of a crush on the Fitbit team. I figure, any company that’s trying to make being healthy a little more fun is a friend of mine.
