Fitbits are all the rage in the health industry, and for good reason. There are many fun and healthy benefits to owning one, and you would be surprised at how many different features it has! Valley has 10 reasons why you should invest in one.

Workout Encouragement

It really does encourage you to work out. Through competitions, such as “Workweek Hustle,” you and your friends challenge each other to get the most steps. Be prepared for schemes and dirty tactics to rack up those steps. You’ll even be able to know the distance you walked that day.

Track Your Heartbeat

You can track your heartbeat. This comes in handy when you are working out, so you can reach your target heart rate. It also is useful to know your heartbeat in times of stress to calm yourself down.

Sleep Tracker

The sleep tracker leads to better sleeping habits. You can not only see how long you slept for, but also how many minutes you were “restless” or awake for throughout the night and when.

It’s a Watch!

You’ll always have the time and date on your wrist.

Count Your Calories

You can track water intake and caloric intake, which is especially advantageous for weight loss strategies. Another benefit is being able to record your weight and set goals.

And, Say Bye-Bye to Calories

See how many calories you burn everyday and during workouts.

Fitness Challenges

Fitbits feature how many minutes you are active each day and adds those minutes up at the end of the week. You can challenge yourself to top last week’s number.

Simple Accessory

It’s comfortable to wear. You barely even know it’s there!

Counts the Climbs

It registers how many flights of stairs you climb every day. It’s always fun to see how much you’re actually doing for your body when you don’t even realize it, especially when you have third floor classes.

Owning a Fitbit Leads to a Healthier You

Whether you’re athletic or not, anyone can enjoy the benefits from a fitbit.
