Fitbit Zip ( magenta)

 

Unlike many of Fitbit's other trackers, the Zip isn't worn on the wrist. The tracker comes with a silicone sleeve that can be clipped to your belt, pocket or bra, which makes it one of the most discreet trackers on the market today. It's not pretty,...

Affordable; tracks steps, distance and calories burned; up to six months of battery life.

It doesn't track sleep or stairs climbed.

The Fitbit Zip is still a great entry-level tracker for people that don't want to wear a wristband.

Fitbit Zip review

 

It has been almost four years since the Fitbit Zip was first released, and yet the affordable tracker still remains one of our favorites. That's because for $60, £50 or AU$80 depending on your locale ( even less if you shop around ), you get a tracker...

Review: Fitbit Zip

 

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...

Tap-to-view stats are wonderful and motivating. Goals and badges give you something to work towards. Syncs better than the kitchen section at Home Depot. Comes in multiple colors so you can express your individuality in one of five ways

You snooze, you lose: This Fitbit doesn’t do sleep tracking. You are so going to lose this sucker harder than a Pac 12 team playing in an SEC home game

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 Zip Review

 

The Fitbit Zip is one of the most accurate pedometers, and it is very easy to use. Also, the helpful Fitbit app works in tandem with the step counter to motivate you to meet your step goals. Whether you want to take more steps or just track the steps...

According to our tests, the Fitbit Zip counts steps more accurately than any other pedometer.

The Zip is only water-resistant, not waterproof, so you can’t swim while wearing it.

The Fitbit Zip is one of the best pedometers because it has wide variety of features, tracks a lot of metrics and has an easy-to-use interface.

There's some deals on Garmin and Polar gear over the next few weeks, dropping the prices as follows: ( ), ( ), ( ), ( ), ( ). Phew! Here's a fun fact to start out with: The FitBit Zip is actually probably the only product where I've written the review...

– Selection of Bluetooth Smart compatible phones is limited outside of iOS and absolutely latest Android phone units ; – Doesn’t track metrics such as sleep or stairs/steps ; – Step-counter accuracy seemingly varies a bit ; – The export functionality...

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...

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

 

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

We like the Fitbit Zip. Priced at £49.99, it is more expensive than some pedometers out there, but then you're buying good design, accuracy and into a wider system, rather than just something that measures your steps. As such, it's a nice device for...
