Rightly said. I have been carrying a Fitbit for about 2-3 years now. Am I wonderfully fit now? Alas, no. Does it help me stay aware that I need to be more active and help me do so? Yep. If I look at the step number and its not close to what I want, then it can be that extra little push to make me go take a walk or something. To me its worth it for just that.
