Is fitbit fit to use?

I'm a convert to.  The Fitbit gives me a goal.  I like that it spurs me to get my 10,000 steps/day. - gwc
Tracking fitness one step at a time

I’ve become a skeptical convert to step-counters. Though they produce imperfect data, some information is better than none at all. And if they give me credit for taking steps when I’m actually sitting down but, say, clapping or pumping my fists? Well, sitting and clapping is better than just sitting.
