I didn’t even really know what a Fitbit was. I kinda-sorta knew, and I’d heard others talk about them. But I had no desire for one. It seemed like a gadget to me, not something I would get real use out of.
Then I got one for Christmas. I thought “Hmm, ok cool. A new toy.” In all honesty, a Fitbit is essentially a pedometer that you wear on your wrist (at least the model I have is). I had no plans to exercise more, no New Year’s resolutions. So to me, this gadget was just going to confirm that I am not nearly active enough. Yay.
