    FitBit

    I heard about this product on this weeks TWiT (This Week in Tech) netcast. These guys were selected to be in the Tech Crunch 50 Conference. http://fitbit.com/

    Wear:
    You can wear the Fitbit Tracker loosely in your pocket, clipped to your pants, shirt, bra or to your wrist when you are sleeping. You can wear it all day!

    Sync:
    The Fitbit Tracker is wireless. Walk within 25-50ft of the provided basestation and your data will be automatically uploaded to the Fitbit website. The auto-sync software runs on both Macs and PC's.

    View:
    View calories, steps and distance on the Fitbit Tracker itself. You can login to the Fitbit website to see even more detailed data and also participate in collaborative fitness goals with friends, family and co-workers.

    No subscriptions, $99 for the unit, the website is free.



    You can watch a short video of their presentation at the Tech Crunch 50 Conference here: http://www.techcrunch50.com/2008/con...enter=73#video

    Your post is offensive and dismissive. Please post more often.

    Looks like an interesting novelty for overweight people looking to get in shape (which seems to be their target market.) So that's good. (Reminds me of the Nike+...)

    I don't see much use for cyclists though, as the functionality is more for walking and seeing if you are simply moving around.
