Every Step You Take

 

The Fitbit Zip body monitor has a clip on one side that hooks to your clothes. Slip it in your pocket, on your collar, or pretty much anywhere, and it begins tracking your movements each day.

Fitbit Zip

 

Fitness trackers, like the people they're meant for, come in plenty of shapes and sizes. The latest addition to this category of wearable devices that act essentially like pedometers, only smarter, is the petite Fitbit Zip. Our Editors' Choice for...

Tiny. Inexpensive. Counts steps, miles walked, calories burned. Runs on a watch battery; no charging. Wireless syncing to Fitbit Web account

Lackluster display. No altimeter (stair climbing) information. Does not monitor sleep

Another solid addition to the excellent Fitbit line of products, the Fitbit Zip gives price-conscious users a lower-cost smart pedometer to monitor their fitness.

Fitbit Zip Review

 

Wearable fitness trackers, they're all the rage nowadays it seems! From the juggernauts in the consumer electronics space, like the Samsungs and LGs, to other companies you wouldn't fathom even to think of being a part of the space, everyone is getting...

A very accurate pedometer ; Simple and easy to use ; It doesn’t really require a user to have a smartphone to view data ; Available in 5 different colors

Inability to view data from previous days without using the mobile app ; Lacks backlighting, so it’s tough to view in the dark ; You’ll need to buy a replacement battery at some time

Sporting a price point of $60, it’s nice to know that your wallet won’t be drained as much picking this thing up. However, as we’ve alluded already, the Fitbit Zip isn’t necessarily the ideal thing for fitness conscious individuals. Instead, it’s meant...

fitbit one and fitbit zip review

 

As an adult I realize that it is prudent to take care of your body so that it lasts as long as possible, but intentions are easier than practice. Motivation is the issue, and that's where two devices from fitbit, the One and Zip, can help you keep...

Easy to use ; Provides comprehensive details of activities ; Small and unobtrusive

Fitbit Zip

 

The Fitbit Zip is designed for tech-savvy individuals. The features that make this pedometer unique include advanced monitoring technology. This device provides all of the basic tools you need in a step counter. Its battery life could use some...

The Fitbit Zip will sync wirelessly to your computer or mobile device. It also features an online dashboard that provides a detailed view of your weekly progress

This digital pedometer has a six-month battery life, which is quite short for this type of product. You can only reach a support representative by email because no other options are available

The Fitbit Zip is designed with tech lovers in mind. This device's standout features include the ability to wirelessly sync your progress and challenge friends. However, some areas could use improvement, such as its battery life and customer support.

Fitbit Zip review

 

The Fitbit Zip hopes to spread the fitness tracking message with a more colourful design and a more affordable price tag

Small, compact design ; Improved app support ; Secure fit

Lacklustre display ; No altimeter tracking ; Doesn't track all sports

One thing we should make clear is that the Fitbit Zip will not instantly make you leaner and fitter, but what it will do - like the Ultra - is hopefully help you make that gradual change by being able to track the information so easily and understand...

Fitbit Zip review

 

The pedometer is nothing new. It's a gadget that's been around for many years, keeping track of steps taken and giving you an idea of how active you've been during that day.

Small, simple, display is ideal for the task, weatherproof

Pretty much nothing

It might lack the gloss of the Nike+ FuelBand, but the Fitbit Zip is simple, discrete and accurate. It extends beyond the simple tracking of steps through the Fitbit universe, making this part of a wider lifestyle choice.

Fitbit Zip wireless activity tracker

 

The tiny Fitbit Zip is a great motivational tool and wireless syncing is effortless

Battery doesn't need recharging ; Wireless Bluetooth syncing ; Great motivational tool

Doesn't count stairs climbed ; Monochrome screen isn't backlit ; Background sync through iOS is hit & miss

The FitBit Zip's tiny design, long-lasting battery and wireless synchronising capabilities make it a great "clip and forget" device that should keep you motivated. However, the non-backlit screen and the lack of an altimeter to count stairs climbed are...

Fitbit Zip review

 

Powered by a cheap coin battery that lasts for months rather than days, the Zip comes in a variety of fun colours and clips onto your clothing, or can be dropped into a pocket.The LCD display means you can check on progress without firing up the app on...

The FitBit Zip is ideal if you want to join the life-logging brigade but can't or won't spend £80 upwards on an activity tracker. It's basic, but unless you really want sleep tracking or the stair-tracking features of Fitbit's other trackers, it's a...
