FitBit: Clip-on exercise and sleep tracker with wireless data uploads
The FitBit is a simple clip-on device with a built-in motion sensor that serves as a information-age pedometer, tracking exxercise intensity levels, sleep quality, calories burned, and distanced travelled — all beamed back wirelessly to the internet (via your Wi-Fi network, I presume) to the FitBit website. There you can compare stats with other FitBit users to see how well you're doing. The whole package will be sold for $100 this Fall.
There may be other incentives besides peer review, explains Gearlog
The current FitBit Device has no display, but Park promises that the final product, expected this December, will feature an OLED display. The readout will include, among other things, a user-definable avatar that will shrink and grow to indication your progress. Kind of like a Tamagotchi, except you're the one you're keeping alive.
This may end up sounding like nit-picking but it's really not: I wish there were a way for the FitBit to track your weight automatically, too.
