fire up the fitbit
I've re-gobbledegooked my fitbit so that it is working properly again. It went through one of those phases where the device sulkily folded its arms and said it wouldn't re-sync with anything. It was a few days before I realised and noticed that my position in my family and friends league table had slid away to the very last position.
After I re-installed the sync software, a combination of recharging it, pressing the button for 10 seconds and then re-synchronising it eventually worked. Yay, hop, skip and jump (3 steps).
I still prefer the hidden type of fitbit device, not wanting to sport a plastic LED readout on my wrist.
Curiously most of the newer device types are not designed to be hidden, and if anything are becoming larger visible devices. Not just from fitbit, but all of the other manufacturers as well.
This summer it will be three years since I first walked fitbit along the beach in Santa Barbara. That's apparently 11,242,616 steps. Perhaps it just needed a break?
