2 Reviews for Lime Fitbit Zip Tracker

  1. Chaz Turbino

    I’ve used the Fitbit One and Fitbit Flex, and while the Flex is convenient to use since it sits on your wrist, the Flex band trapped water/bacteria and a lot of people seem to break the wrist band or lose the clasp. The Force has a lot of similar complaints but it isn’t even waterproof like the Flex. The one is just as expensive as the Flex, but at least has a 14 day battery life. The altimeter on the One was neat but not mandatory. The Zip is the least expensive, but gets the job done and actually seems more compact if you take off the clip.I did not like how the Flex trapped water in the band and starts to smell after a few days, while the One felt too long/bulky in my pocket. The fact the One, Flex, and Force have a non-removeable Li-Ion battery doesn’t help things, as those have a very short life (about 1-2 weeks tops), and have a limited lifespan from charging/discharging. The Zip uses readily available CR2025 batteries, but the battery cover has fairly weak clips – just make sure to align them before turning the cover.The Zip syncs a little differently from the One and Flex using my Samsung Galaxy S3. If you keep the auto background sync on, it can reduce the battery life on the Zip. The Zip is an energy miser, as it shuts the LCD down if it detects inactivity within a few seconds. As a result, even if you are manually syncing on the phone, you may need to tap the Zip a few times to keep it awake while the app is syncing. With the One and Flex, I find that the phone app auto syncs fairly reliably. The Zip reads my steps and calculates distances about the same as the One and Flex.Overall: 4/5 stars. In many ways, Fitbit has taken a step back with the One, Flex, and Force. The Zip seems to be the best as it is less expensive, simpler in design, and does the same job more or less. I found the One’s altimeter and the sleep features on the One/Flex/Force to be unnecessary and often inaccurate. The One’s altimeter often mis-reads floors climbed. I did not like the band design on the Flex/Force, and the One actually feels a bit more bulky due to the length when I put it in my coin pocket.

    To be honest I have steered away from “fitness trackers” in the past as I was a little leery of wearing a wireless device 24/7 but this little gadget is the perfect compromise!I finally caved in for two reasons – one my job requires a lot of drive time and though I work out each morning, I was really curious as to how much actual activity I was getting in each day and how many calories I burn. And two, I participate in a Vitality program through work which gives discounts of healthy insurance and prizes – Amazon gift certificates for me – when my fitness and health is logged; so now I can get additional points with this little gadget; and seeing how much activity I do is pretty interesting!Set up was quick and a breeze – worth noting there are no actual instructions as such in the box, just the website to set this up! It is small enough to wear under clothes (sometimes I keep it in my purse during the day -still works the same) and does more than I thought! Not only does it track steps, but through the app on my phone I can also input other workouts I do such as swimming , what I have eaten (though you have to get a little creative on this as it is not as comprehensive as something like My Fitness Plan which has many more food types to choose from), how much water I have had, and it will tell me calories in verses calories out! If you are looking to lose weight, you can input a goal and it will tell you how many calories you are allowed each day verses how much you have burned via exercise and the steps you have taken.This little gizmo syncs whenever it is close to my phone and for those that have something like a Vitality or other health account, I was able to input my Fit Bit account information and earn points within 24 hours of my activity ! It really is interesting seeing how many steps you take! Day one I had no problem hitting 12000 as I had a tough workout including the elliptical and treadmill, both of which really rack up the steps total; but day two began with swimming which though I can log for calorie burn, does not count towards steps, and that combined with a long drive time, meant hitting 5000 was hard! Now I am really incentivized to do more activity in the evening to get my step count up!Great device, really good for tracking overall fitness , comes with all you need including a great little cover with a grip that means this things stays put (even in a very hot, humid yoga class – trust me I tried)! Wish I had purchased this sooner!!

  • // Q & A

    Will it work with an elliptical ?

    yes, it does. I get about 4,000 or so steps for 1/2 hour on the elliptical.

    Does this device come with the clip, or is it separate?

    To add to the above answers, it is an extremely sturdy and nicely designed, comfortable little unit. If you look at the photo, the velvety, matte black part is a firm silicone shell with an extremely reliable, coated clip in the back. The clip is easy to slide onto any article of clothing, and at the same time, this clip does NOT slide off. I have never had my zip accidentally fall off once i have secured it wherever I want it on my clothing. It is trustworthy. It also has never harmed any of my clothes that I clipped it to, in any way. It is a wonderful device, unlike pretty much every cheapo pedometer I have bought prior to owning one of these zips. (There are newer models that go on the wrist, I know. But if you do not need your sleep monitored and other schmancier options, it is a great piece at an affordable price. I have the fitbit app on my laptop and if you have a smartphone, there is a great app for your phone as well. They connect and upload the daily info from your zip (or any fitbit device you register) to your phone and/or computer, and there you can see your progress in graphs and incorporate tracking your fitness goals, weight, calories and food intake, and more.But I digress. Yeah, it comes with a nice silicone clip that is durable and reliable. When you want to change the 2025 battery, you slide the actual device out of its cozy silicone clip, use the special key that comes with the device to unlock the back, and pop the new battery in (probably 2-3x/year, depending on what shape your battery is in starting out.) The zip device is easy to place in or remove from the clip sleeve, yet it will not just fall out on its own. This silicone sleeve does not loosen over time. It is an awesome clip.

    Does the fibit require a subscription for the online activity tracker?

    No subscription needed. Just set up your account online with a password. As far as tracking activities, it only automatically tracks your steps taken and tells you how many calories you burn. You have to put in which activities you do each day, and it helps you determine calories burned and then you can log them in.

    Does the zip automatically reset everyday to 0 on all trackings? Also is there a clock with this and if so, how do I set it?

    Yes, it resets everyday at midnight. All trackings. It does have a digital clock. The time is set when you sync up which was nice when it came to changing time for daylight saving time.

    What is the guarantee on this? This is the second fitbit I have purchased that has failed. What would you suggest?

    Fitbit has a 45 return policy for a full refund for any reason and a 365 day limited warranty. See this link for more info. I have not had any problems with mine at all. http://www.fitbit.com/returns
