Well I finally succumbed. The Fitbit craze has taken hold of me well and truly. I held out as long as I could but one day I happened to be passing a sale and there it was, calling my name. I only got the basic model, not the one that measures heartbeat etc. I figured if there was to be a problem with my heart beating I will probably be the first to know.
So now I have to walk a lot to justify having it.
