Discreet step tracking away from the wrist

from Expert Reviews

If you’re not fussy, you then have to ask what you really want from a fitness tracker. The Fitbit One has no bells and whistles, just tracking steps, really. And if you’re interested in sleep tracking, it’s a lot more fiddly. Add to that the fact that it’s very easily misplaced or put through the washing machine, and you may decide – as I did when I lost mine – that a wrist-based wearable is a safer purchase.

About

An excellent tri-axis accelerometer pedometer

from About

This is a good update for Fitbit. I love the effortless syncing with my iPhone.

I recommend Fitbit One for those of us who want to lose weight, as it has good integration of the food diary and tracking your calories in/calories out throughout the day, especially using your iPhone.

If you don't care about the sleep tracking or stairs climbed, then the Fitbit Zip is also a good choice. They both upload to the same Fitbit Dashboard and app, although you can only use one tracker at a time.

Digital Trends

Offers fitness tracking with a dose of subtlety

from Digital Trends

If all we wanted to do was track steps, calories burned, and stairs climbed, the Fitbit One would be our favorite tracker. Those not interested in easily tracking sleep or relying on vibrating alarms to alert them during the day (and night) will find the One a great piece of fitness technology. It’s small, light, attractive, and it works. And yes, it will track sleep for those who have the tenacity to remember to strap it on every night. But for us, the overhead was too high to get much sleep tracking done, and not being able to feel the vibrating alarm half the time made us worry that we were going to miss an important event.

More than anything, testing the One made us realize how much we loved the recalled Force. It took all the features of the One and placed them on the wrist. With the Force, Fitbit had the market covered. The One is for people who want a low-key pocket tracker, and the Force is for those who want to flash their fitness tracking on their wrists.

We’ve heard rumors that Fitbit has fixed the problems they had with the Force, and that they will be relaunching something similar soon (with full iOS notifications included). Depending on your current fitness-tracking situation, that may be worth waiting for. In the meantime, the One remains Fitbit’s premiere tracker, and one that will not disappoint anyone interested in staying in motion. Especially for those who want to do it on the sly. ...

A great activity tracker at a sensible price

from Tech Advisor

The Fitbit One is accurate, has great battery life and tracks pretty much everything you'd want it to. The proprietary charging cable is a pain, but it's a minor quibble about what it otherwise an excellent activity tracker.

Good Housekeeping

Accurate calorie counter and pedometer, easy to set up

from Good Housekeeping

The best fitness tracker for the casual user in our test, the FitBit One uses Bluetooth to automatically sync information to your computer and iPhone. Consumer testers noted how comfortable its small, sleek design effortlessly fit into their pocket, or clipped anywhere. Volunteers also thought that set-up was simple and liked the website, which provides charts of daily activity as well as a journal to record sleep and diet. The device screen displays steps, calories, and flights of stairs you've climbed. Bonus: You can set its silent vibration alarm so you won't wake your partner in the morning.

Cnet

Powerful fitness tracker, weak design

from Cnet

The Fitbit One is a perfect example of an excellent product packed with a host of great features undone by a problematic design. By connecting to Fitbit's powerful analytical tools in the cloud and helping you count calories, stairs climbed, and sleep quality, the One goes way beyond one-trick pedometers.

That said, its clip cover doesn't grip as reliably as it should, which isn't merely an annoyance. It could result in a lost device, or indeed multiple devices, as in my case. If the One cost $20, that might be a forgivable offense, but at $99.95 it's a serious issue.

This is why I suggest purchasing the Fitbit One only if you can't stand wrapping a gadget around your wrist. For all others I recommend holding out for the upcoming Fitbit Flex, which sports an identical $99.95 sticker price but uses a more convenient and secure wrist band design. It also matches the One's features blow for blow, save counting stairs and a having an alphanumeric display.

Gadget Review

An extremely accurate and reasonably priced pedometer

from Gadget Review

It’s pretty remarkable that the Fitbit One is as accurate as it is. I was able to trick it a few times, but unlike the Fuelband, which recorded steps while I was driving, the Fitbit one was perhaps off by 1-2 paces when I specifically counted my strides forward. The sleep tracking is an ancillary feature that I could take or leave, as is the apps ability to count my caloric consumption. The included charging cable makes charging it up a bit on the fiddly side, but that is something that only needs to happen every 10 days or so. Unfortunately, I stopped using my Fitbit One once I purchased the Nexus 4, which doesn’t allow for direct to handset syncs, thus making the task of syncing much more cumbersome.

T3

One of the best wireless fitness trackers to buy

from T3

The Fitbit One makes some minor alterations that are by no means revolutionary, but they are enough to still make it one of the most impressive fitness tracking devices out there.

Compared to the Nike Fuelband and the Jawbone Up it can be worn much more discreetly, is more affordable in terms of what you get in return for your money with the hardware and an excellent dashboard. Growing third party app support is a major advantage over other devices, while the improved syncing and much securer clip are welcome additions having had issues with this on the Ultra.

GPS would still be a great feature for future Fitbit devices, as would a better alternative to manually entering food data and the ability to track other sports like swimming and cycling. But if you are looking to lead a much healthier lifestyle and not knock times of your running PB, the Fitbit One is one of the best devices to help you achieve that and keep you motivated to stick with it for the long haul.

The ultimate fitness gadget

from TechRadar

The Fitbit One is without a doubt one of the most versatile and useful fitness gadgets on the market. It's also fairly expensive. The truth is that there's nothing about the information from the Fitbit One that will make you lose weight. It's no magic bullet to weight loss.

What it will do is hold you accountable. Every day you will know exactly how much you did or didn't do; whether you achieved your goals or failed miserably. This is the beauty of the Fitbit. By knowing that you need to achieve your goals to lose weight and tracking how close you are to cracking them, this high-tech device can help you take your fitness to the next level.

Sure, the ability to track sleep is a niche feature. It can be useful information to explain lethargy, but for most people it will probably be ignored. But that doesn't overule the fact that this small little gadget is a great way to incentivise your kickstart to health....

Slightly flawed, but still a great way to quantify yourself

from TechCrunch

At $99, it’s not the cheapest little tracking gizmo, but it’s definitely worth the premium over its little brother the Zip. I haven’t spent any considerable amount of time with the Jawbone Up (see John’s review for more on that thing), but my week with the Fitbit has been enough for me to stick my once-trusty Fuelband into a drawer. If you’re looking for a neat (and unabashedly geeky) way to keep tabs on how active you are, the Fitbit One is a wonderful choice — as long as you don’t mind keeping track of all those accessories.
