Gagets

After being on MFP for a month I notice a lot of gagets people refer to like the Fitbit, Garmin, MIO, Runtastic etc.

Right now I am just doing this without any HRM or other items. I am using the C25K app for iPhone and tracking everything as best that I can here.

Do you use any gagets? Some seem really expensive to me and I am wondering if they are worth the investment. What is your experience?

    I've been using my fibit for about two weeks and I absolutely love using something to keep myself accountable. I always wanted to get like a HRM, but never did. My boyfriend got the fitbit and loved it so we got one for me too. I LOVE that it works with myfitnesspal. I have the best of both worlds, a great calorie counter and a great tracker throughout the day.

    With this device, being that I should wear it all day [and do] and that fact that it cost us 80 a piece, I know it won't be something I use for only a month. The only problem I have is actually the myfitnesspal side, making sure I count my calories.

    I'm worried that'll happen or that I'll lose it. I try to keep it on my shirt or bra so I know where it is at all times, That's how I lost my last pedometer, it was on my hip at work and on my way to the bus stop it was gone!
