I’ve blogger many times about my Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker. I have loved it ever since I got one two years ago. In July I started suspecting that my steps were no longer tracking accurately. They the screen would go blank from time to time. I figured after two years, it was time for a new one so I ordered another.
It came the end of July and I was so happy. Two weeks in, this one quit working. I went through a tutorial on youtube and found I needed to make sure the battery was connecting. Mine wasn’t and it was a quick fix. A week or so later it wasn’t working again. UGH. I was crabby.
I contacted the company and they gave me a suggestion. It didn’t work. I contacted them again and GREAT NEWS…they sent me a new one free of charge.
That made me smile. I’m sporting a new green one now and I am happily walking my 10,000 steps every day again…well once in while it’s a little less. Weekends are hard for me. I try to catch up on the blog and end up sitting at the computer or sitting at the sewing machine…all things I very much enjoy just things that don’t generate steps.
I keep plugging away though. Often my weekday steps are enough that I still average 10,000 a day.
I love companies that stand by their products and Fitbit is one of those companies!! For those interested some time ago I did a blog post about my Fitbit answering some reader questions. You can find that here.
