I have been gushing over this thing for about a week now but I can't help it! This has really helped me kick it into gear and even on the days that I normally don't do any form of exercise, I have gotten out and done something. I don't want to break my streak and I'm constantly wanting to move around until I hit my 10,000 steps.
After you get the Flex, there is a small dongle that you can plug into the USB port of your computer. It should be the main one that you use and each time you are within a few yards of that, it will automatically sync with the Flex. The flex can also automatically sync via bluetooth to any smartphone. There is also a free App for the fitbit that you can check your stats if you aren't near your main computer.
