Fitbug Orb Activity Tracker: The Affordable Workout Tracker (with a Catch)

by Range

There are plenty of activity trackers around to get the job done to track physical activity, and most of them aren’t cheap. For the more budget-conscious, there’s the newly released Fitbug Orb, which looks like it could be a good option.

The Orb is quite discreet. You can wear it on your wrist, belt, a lanyard, or have it clipped on. It works as a pedometer, tracks aerobic steps, time, distance, calories burned, speed, and even sleep.

Up front, the Fitbug Orb costs less than half than the more costly alternatives, however after the first 12 months, you’ll have to spend $3.99 a month if you want to keep using the online tracking service at fitbug.com and access their coaching plans. Of course, in 12 months, the next hot fitness gadget might be out and you will have gotten a year’s use for under $50 total. Not bad.

The model that will be released works only with iOS devices, at least for now. The Fitbug Orb retails for $49.99(USD) and is available for pre-order for late 2013 delivery.

    I believe this is actually incorrect, as I have noted in other articles that it will work with several Samsung models, too, not just IOS. And I haven’t seen the part in other articles about the $3.99 price after the first 12 months….that’s news to me. Sure that’s correct???
