I just found out that the Fitbit Zip now has a mobile app for the Android.
Hurray! My Christmas gift has expanded.
The app has an easy to read Dashboard that lets you see your Steps and Food in a glance. It lets you enter into a Food log, Water log and keep track with linked friends.
I plan on using this for my spring training to get in shape for a sponsored run in October. Yes, that is a bit far off but I have a double goal of losing weight and increasing my running. So the weight loss has to happen first then the increased mileage. As I wear the Fitbit zip I get to see where I am at with my steps AND how much I can consume in calories. I admit that is the part that I like the most. As I earn badges for number of daily steps; my amount of calories per day increases.
Cheers to a great spring start!
