The contacts in the device are very sensitive. If you don't place the battery in just right, it will only work for a short period of time before the battery needs to be readjusted or replaced. Even when following instructions provided by the company, some people report that still can't get it working properly. The battery may end up lasting days instead of the promised 4-6 months. You can see how to properly change the battery here. See More
The app doesn't only display the stats from your device, it also lets you track a variety of different health-related stats by entering them manually. You can log your food for the day, how you slept, activity, weight, and more. See More
The Fitbit Zip only tracks distance, steps, and calories burned. It's basically a pedometer with a smart tracking platform you can use for manually tracking the rest of your day. It can't tell you stairs climbed or heart rate, and there is no alarm, sleep tracking, or GPS. See More
The Fitbit Zip fitness tracker is very small, so you can easily wear it somewhere that it will be hidden (belt, pocket, bra strap, etc.). Unlike most trackers which have wrist bands, you don't have to worry about trying to make it blend in with what you're wearing. See More
The tracker uses a battery which means no worrying about bringing charging cords with you, and the battery lasts for up to 8 months. The time automatically stays synced to your connected smartphone. So when you cross time zones, the Activité Pop will automatically adjust the time for you. See More
The overall design makes it feel like there is confusion as to who the target market is for the tracker. The watch face is sleek and professional in appearance, looking more like a regular watch than a tracker. However the bands available for the watch are made from a cheap-looking silicone. If you wish to buy a replacement band, they are only available in three bright colors (orange, plum, and teal). See More
