FitBits are small wearable devices that inspire people to exercise more, eat better and live healthier lifestyles. An ultra-compact wireless wearable sensor called the Fitbit Tracker, automatically tracks data about a person’s activities, such as calories burned, sleep quality, steps and distance. It collects activity data automatically while it is worn by the user all day. The collected data is wirelessly uploaded to a website where the wearer can see their data and track their progress toward personal goals. The website provides a motivational interface where users can share their progress, compare themselves against similar people and work toward virtual goals with their friends, family and co-workers. At the website, users can also manually log nutrition, weight and other health information in order to gain a complete picture of their health.
