I keep looking at the pretty pink orb on my wrist but it doesn’t tell me the time. Maybe I’m too old school, maybe I miss wearing my watch….I know, most people tell the time with their mobiles now but I like my watch! So, if there was one thing I would change about the Fitbug Orb, it would be to have the time on it!
So if it doesn’t tell the time what does it do?
Well actually, it does quite a lot and I’m already really quite attached to mine.
The Fitbug Orb
A Fitbug Orb is a fitness, sleep and activity tracker that you wear about your body and connect to your mobile phone or tablet. You can also connect it to your laptop or computer.
The Orb itself is a a round slightly domed device that works by battery which can be easily replaced. Replacements cost around 95 pence each. The Orb then fits into a holder, either the wristband or the clip. You can then choose where to wear it, either on your wrist, clipped to your belt, attached to your underwear or around your neck. The Orb uses a 3 axis accelerometer to accurately measure your every step and move.
Ooh I do like the sound of this and it isn't as expensive as I thought it would be x
This sounds really interesting – I have to admit I think it would be good if they fitted a little digital clock onto it. x
I can see how not having the time on would be annoying – feels like a no brainer to have added a clock.
I do a lot of walking but I've never found anything that accurately measures my steps. This sounds ideal.
I really like the idea of this, as I know if I was accountable for what I ate, I would probably do better, and I know I would want to make my steps up to a round number
I got sent a fitbit to review ages ago and even though it said it was compatible with my phone it actually wasn't so that has really put me off them, I think these ones are a bit ugly looking I prefer something a bit more slender if it was going to be on wrist all the time x
I've got a fitbit charge and it's does have the time on it but I have to tap it really hard to get it to actually display x
I loved my Orb but it was too easy to lose and sadly that was what happend, the magent strap fell off. Mich x
oh that's a shame Michelle. I have to say I did worry about the strap coming off but I don't know if they've changed it because it's little pegs and holes and it stays put, even when I wear it in bed. I've also found the belt clip very secure.
This looks brilliant, I would love one of these as I'm trying to get a bit fitter at the moment!!
I like the idea of this – I really must try and get a bit fitter! Kaz x
