Fitbit joins the fitness band game with Bluetooth 4.0-powered Flex


  • ile2010

    Are people really willing to spend $100+ on a sensor with a Bluetooth interface?

    Sure, it’s cool but i think that the price is pushing it.

    I use the Endomondo app and works very well without additional sensors and I only paid $1 for the premium Android version. Using the free variants on both iOS and Windows Phone.

      Took a glance through the Endomondo site, and it’s more of a distance tracker rather than a fitness / movement tracker. So I guess it would be good for runners / walkers etc.

    The standard Android for the Nexus devices doesn’t support Bluetooth 4 (LE) yet.

    Google has said that adding it is ‘next’, and the newer devices have Bluetooth 4 chips, so they will soon have BT4, just not yet.


    Hopefully it lasts longer than my original FitBit! Build quality on that was horrible and fell apart after approx 1 month. This one has got to be better!

    darn.. I just got the fitbit one last week after I saw the windows 8 app come out.. you can buy it right from and not have the shipping tax import duties that you get off the fitbit site.
