Fitbit Zip wireless activity tracker

 

The tiny Fitbit Zip is a great motivational tool and wireless syncing is effortless

Battery doesn't need recharging ; Wireless Bluetooth syncing ; Great motivational tool

Doesn't count stairs climbed ; Monochrome screen isn't backlit ; Background sync through iOS is hit & miss

The FitBit Zip's tiny design, long-lasting battery and wireless synchronising capabilities make it a great "clip and forget" device that should keep you motivated. However, the non-backlit screen and the lack of an altimeter to count stairs climbed are...

Fitbit Zip review: A basic and affordable fitness tracker

 

It has been almost four years since the Fitbit Zip was first released, and yet the affordable tracker still remains one of our favorites. That's because for $60, £50 or AU$80 depending on your locale (even less if you shop around), you get a tracker...

Affordable; tracks steps, distance and calories burned; up to six months of battery life

It doesn't track sleep or stairs climbed

The Fitbit Zip is still a great entry-level tracker for people that don't want to wear a wristband.

Fitbit Zip

 

For months, I've used the Fitbit Ultra. It's a tiny, rechargeable device that tracks every step I take; at a glance I can see the number of steps I've taken, how many miles I've walked, and even the floors I've climbed for the current day. And the...

Competitively priced; small, lightweight design

Issues with wireless syncing

As an iPhone 5 owner, one of the Zip’s big draws for me was the wireless background syncing without requiring a USB dongle on my Mac. It’s surprising to me that the option is disabled by default, and—at least in my case—gets disabled when you change...

Good, but wristbands are better

 

I received this as a gift - but personally, I believe wearables are just a gimmick and don't have much to offer. In terms of tracking fitness goals, it's obviously not as good as the other Fitbit devices but it tracks steps well enough. For the price...

Poor performer

 

I bought this to replace a lost fitbit - I was hoping for something that would be accurate and not have to sit on my wrist. This was OK but the accuracy was really off and you always risk leaving it on your clothes that go in the wash! It didn't sync...

great little gadget

 

I got given a Fitbit zip 18 months ago as a gift, it is a great incentive, I did have a couple of problems with it losing my steps but Fitbit were great to deal with and changed it over for a new one no questions asked. It does what I want it for and...

Simple

 

I initially had no problems with this Fitbit but it started to misbehave within a few months. It would die quite suddenly. I replaced the battery but the problem got worse. It would reset to 0 after a few hours of wear, sometimes more than once in a...

Great

 

Fantastic device, I don't leave home without it. Only problem is that you have to replace the battery. That was my fault for not reading the package properly though. Thankfully the battery has usually lasted me at least 3 to 4 weeks before needing to...
