Your personal coach that you wear like a watch and records how many steps you’ve taken every day, the distance you’ve travelled and how many calories you’ve burned in the process. It is water resistant and records the duration and quality of your sleep and has a silent wake-up alarm feature. The Fitbit even prompts you to drink water and to move around if you’ve not been active for some time. All the bossiness of a real personal trainer, but this one never sleeps and can’t be sacked.

Yes it hurts, but it’s a good hurt.
