Fitbit Users

I've been hearing so much about Fitbit lately that I'm starting to wonder whether it's worth it to shell out $100 for one. I currently have an inexpensive pedometer.
Fitbit users - can you tell me what you love about Fitbit?

I loved my FitBit! Devices like these reminds me of online gaming. If you've ever played Farmville, Candy Crush, or 2048, you'll know what I mean. And they can sync to your phone nowadays to update your stats.

I have the Vivofit now. There are lots of options these days. Any fancy pedometer you buy will be fun because of that online gaming aspect - competing with yourself and online friends in device's online community. My Vivofit has a red bar of shame that appears if I've been inactive for too long... It works!

I got a fitbit about 3 weeks ago. Saw one at my local Costco. I got the charge one with the readout screen on my wrist. I wear it every day and sleep with it at night. I love being able to see how many steps I've taken at any point in the day and see if I'm having a more or less active day. It definitely motivates me to park farther and walk, do more stairs, etc because I can see where I am at at any point. I also like when I hit a goal (like number of steps) it buzzes on my wrist and it's a nice pat on the back. Funny how little things like acknowledging you made it to a certain number really motivates you. I definitely like seeing the readout on my wrist rather than having to go to my phone to see the results. The wrist screen shows time/steps/distance/calories burned/flights of stairs. I do like the phone and online images/numbers/graphics and I look at that later in the day. Fitbit sends an email with a weekly tally or average of my activity each week. I am enjoying the fitbit far more than I expected and I am very happy I went for the version with wrist screen (which was $125 or $129 at Costco).
