Fitness and activity trackers are really super popular these days (most of my family now have Fitbits that they wear and I have had my chunky Garmin Forerunner running watch for years). So what does it do? Naturally, it tracks your daily activity! The Cel-Lab Fit Clip Activity Tacker retails for $23.99 and acts as a pedometer, calorie counter, distance tracker, and even a sleep tracker....all in one convenient tiny package! The face of the tracker glows blue and you can read all the information super easily and quickly. To activate the sleep tracking function you just hold down the single black button for about 5 seconds and you'll see the face change. Overall, it's really easy to use. Here are the various tracking stats when I first turned it on:
Here's where it gets interesting. This Activity Tracker actually comes with software that you can use to track your long-term activity. Note: You do NOT have to use the computer software if you just want to look at the end of each day and leave it at that. I'm a sucker for long-term tracking though so I was excited that the software allowed for all kinds of graphs to track your progress in more detail. The homescreen looks like this:
You have to first put in some info (weight, height, sex, etc) in your settings and then you can explore your activity, your sleep, and your history and progress. You can set an individual daily step goal (I went with 5000 steps because that is roughly 5 miles) and monitor your percentage completed on your tracker. It also keeps track of your active time.
Now for how you wear it. As I mentioned the actual unit is a clip itself, so you won't be finding yourself working with any type of strings/ties/rubber connectors/plastic connectors/etc. This makes it SO easy to clip on your clothing (or wherever) even when you're in a rush. Also, you don't even need to clip it to your clothing. You can slip in your pocket, slide it in your purse, hide it under your beanie, whatever you can think of. As long as it's on you when you're moving it will keep track of your steps. The tracker can be flaunted with pride (you know, if you want everyone to see you getting your pedometer tracking on!) or concealed discretely (if you clip it to an undergarment or slip it in a pocket). The tracker also comes with a band...which I used to strap the pedometer to my ankle while I was just vegging around the apartment. The band looks like this and attaches with velcro so it's one size fits most:
The tracker retails for $23.99 so I think it's such a great deal compared to more expensive alternatives that do the same job (FitClip I'm looking at you!). I also think it's more accurate than the super cheap options that will break in five seconds. This tracker is also sweat and water resistant so don't worry about moisture. Lastly, whether you're a gym bouncing bunny who does insane workouts OR a leisurely daily stroll-taker, you will definitely find yourself enjoying this Activity Tracker.
I was provided this product for a very discounted price in return for my honest opinion and review. Rest assured, my opinions were not influenced in any way.
