Challenge Me, Fitbit?


Recently Fitbit did an update and added a new box to the dashboard. The concept of this box is to try and get 250 steps an hour. I thought this was a great goal for me!


You can customise this to suit yourself, as well. I especially like it at night time as a reminder to get up and move because once I have done my exercise for the day and made dinner I can often “forget” to do anything more. I customised mine to involve 12 hours a day, and I set alarms for 45 minutes past the hour. When that alarm goes off, I get up!

250 steps is around 200 metres on my treadmill. This takes me about 2-3 minutes.

  1. Thanks so much for this!! I saw the box but had no idea I could set the hours. I thought it was just another piece of information. I just changed my hours to 8am to 9pm. :)

  2. I love this feature. I set it for 5 am to 6 pm. At work I make sure to get up and walk around every hour. You’ve probably seen in the app, if you click the right arrow, it gives more detail, and if you scroll down in one of the screens to “All Day Breakdown,” it shows what percentage of your day was active and what percentage was sedentary. I find that very motivational!

    • Janet – absolutely – it is the best thing I ever bought. I’m walking 10,000 steps most days now. Since I got it, I’ve lost over 12kg. It only leaves my wrist when I shower or when I go in the pool.

      I find the sleep tracking super awesome and have managed to improve my sleep from 1-2 hours broken up to straight 7-8 hours without waking at all. :)
