Fitbit Ultra Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker - £57.99 at Amazon

Found 4th Feb 2013
Full price is £79.99 - and it was almost £70 last time I looked at it. Just logged in to buy something else and noticed the drop in price so I've now purchased one.

Gets really good reviews, and helps encourage you to be more active! Also I'm particularly interested in the sleep monitor as I never wake up feeling refreshed.

I have the blue one of these and have been using it for since Christmas day (It was a present).

I really like it, but I am a geek. its quite surprising how little I walk in the week and how much I walk in on a weekend, the sleep tracker is ok. you hold the button on it and it starts a timer. it logs every time you move, when you wake you stop the timer and it then works out how much you moved in the time you slept. For me its the weakest part of the device.

Mine is used along with my fitness pal app and they work together pretty well, I log my food with MFP and daily calorie burn with this. I own a heart rate monitor for exercise so take this off to avoid duplicate calories burned.

I paid £35 for mine from Amazon black Friday deal, it has a tendency to move around your hip and lots of reports of lost devices and you can only sync it with a dock that has to be plugged into your computer.

I am happy with it for the price I paid, but not sure its work the £58, TBH

FYI - there is a new model coming out soon that seams to cover all the issues and has a few new features e.g. water proof.

Any questions, feel free to give me a shout.

New model is out also got one fantastic worth every penny. Customer service was great when I had an issue.

Nike fuel band is a lot more expensive!

If you know where to get the new fitbit for cheaper than the ultra why not share with the rest of us?

The comparable Fitbit model is the Ultra, cheapest about £66-96 on a Groupon Deal which has ended. Both these models have sleep record function. The Zip without Sleep record is £50. If you havant confused the two types I really would like a Ultra for less than £57-99 delivered any links?? Thanks

Did you sign up with HUKD just to post this?!

The new version of the Ultra is the Fitbit one - same but sleeker and it syncs via bluetooth. The band that is due out is the flex - it is the waterproof one and is 80 bux. I don't think the flex has an altimeter in it (I could be wrong) - so may not measure inclines which would make it less accurate for calories - It also doesn't have a screen to check on progress through out the day though some lights appear to give you a rough idea of the % of the way towards your target you are. You will also be wearing a wrist band so could look a bit benderesque.

I have had the fitbit one for about a week and so far, my only complaint is that you cannot get access to your raw data without an 80 dollar subscription to export as CSV. The site is pretty good though and has all the stats you are likely to need.

Oh, flex is due out sometime in March I believe.

I think its a great price. I did get one like Slim2k on black Friday from amazon it was £40 then and sold out real quick, I just checked my order history. I also brought the Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scales - Black £50 same time. So used both together. I've been using both daily including sleep tracking. I track all my food currently via myfitnesspal application on android. It just works really well, help keep me focused, feel healthier and to see where I can make adjustments in my life to be healthier. I think its worth it as its helping me change my habits to be better.

Its a quality product that tracks as you climb and can tell if your walking or running.
This product is no longer being made its been replaced by the fitbit one. I now have that product as of today. Thats £80 everywhere was designed to work with top end mobiles that have bluetooth 4.0 to use low power blue tooth. It works with latest I phones but andoid phones like mine HTC one x that have hardware don't have the software working yet. so i still need to go to the pc at moment. Hoping that update will happen soon but who knows. So my advice great price, great company this is the better value unless you have an Iphone then get the one.

As to the company (fitbit) I lost mine running they replaced at no cost to me even though was really my fault as wasn't using clip with the latest one. Think that's amazing customer service.
