Reading the Fine Print

I got up this morning got myself dressed and his usual made sure I had my fit bit zip on.

What I didn’t realize was the battery symbol on the fit bit zip was flashing that it was running out of juice. I had taken the girls for their morning walk did things around the house and proceeded to go down to our local street fair which is called “Whale of a Day”, as in the 1600s our town of Townbank was a whaling community.

The problem was I had walked around 5100 steps then I realized the battery was going dead.What they don’t have in bold print, is that if you change an almost dead battery, YOU LOSE ALL THE STEPS YOU HAVE RECORDED ON YOUR ZIP.



THEM…for that day that, at least.

So technically I have wrapped up the day with 10,221 steps, when I should have roughly 15,700 steps. I spent time on the phone with Alex from FitBit but, no luck in that.

Walker with FitBit beware!
