This fitness tracking wearable tech gift from Fitbit is used to track fitness metrics, such as calories burnt or distance covered for the day.

Fitbit is not a new name, when it comes to wearable tech, such as fitness trackers. In fact, the company is one of the pioneers in smartwatches and fitness trackers. Its products are designed to offer comfort during use with enhanced tracking features and tools that allow you to achieve your fitness goals.

Fitbit Flex is an excellent choice for health-conscious and fitness geeks. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, then this little wrist companion from Fitbit will help you do something about that.

While Fitbit has come up with several new offerings, including the Charge and Charge HR, Flex is still the preferred choice of many old and loyal Fitbit fans. While most other fitness tracking products introduced at the time of the Flex failed to make any breakthrough, Flex has a different story to tell.

It merges sleep tracking and step calculator in one unit. Basically, you strap it on your wrist and then just let it work on its own. The only time you need to set it is when you hit the bed. Five taps puts the device in sleep mode. This allows you to determine your sleep hours.

The device is just as helpful when you're on the go. It determines the steps take, calories burned and the duration for which you've been strolling.

The water-resistant Flex smartwatch can be worn while taking a shower. Just don't jump into the pool with it. The device can also be worn in the rain.

Flex gets sensors that track periods of intense activity, such as jogging or running. Accordingly, it adjusts its measurements. This allows you to get accurate measurements.

Trackers are only used to relay information to an app. To gauge progress, you need to access the app that comes with the Flex. On the tracker though, you will not find any clickable fitness reporting features. It only gets a tiny LED display that shows how close you are to your daily fitness goal for the day.

The Fitbit Flex is a great choice for geeks in need of a simple tool for monitoring fitness goals. Available in 7 color options in slightly varying prices, you can select a model that matches your needs.
