What do the light patterns mean on my Flex?
Couple of days back I got confused seeing two lights blinking instead of one and decide to do some research on what it actually means, I never really gave much attention to my FITBIT FLEX besides using it to track my steps on a daily basic. Can you believe that it also comes with an alarm feature?
Fitbit Flex features five LED indicator lights. The lights behave differently depending on what the tracker is doing.
The indicator lights illuminate as you hit 20% increments towards your goal. Tap your Flex to see your progress. When you reach your goal, Flex will celebrate by buzzing and flashing its lights.
When you tap your Flex rapidly for one or two seconds to enter sleep mode, it will vibrate and display two slowly dimming lights. During sleep mode, two blinking lights alternate. After you tap your Flex rapidly to exit sleep mode, it will vibrate and flash all five lights three times and then display a spinning light pattern. For more information, see How do I track my sleep?
While your Flex is charging, an indicator light will pulse to show the battery level every few seconds.
Each indicator light represents progress towards the total charge. When the Flex has charged completely, all 5 indicator lights will blink. For more information, see How do I charge my Flex?
If an update fails to complete, your Flex's LED indicator lights may cycle back and forth repeatedly, from left to right, and your Flex no may longer respond to taps, charging, or resets. If this occurs restart your tracker using the instructions at How do I restart my tracker? If an update still fails to complete, try updating using a different method; for example, if you were updating using Fitbit Connect on your computer, try updating using the mobile app. If this fails as well, contact Customer Support for further troubleshooting.
When a silent alarm goes off, the Flex vibrates and the center light flashes. For more information, see How do I manage silent alarms with Flex?

Every week I would receive an email for a quick update of my weekly statistic that gives me a good gauge on days that I am most active and days that I decide to take it slow and rest. How much calories do you burn per week?

I am still pinning my hopes on a prize.(cross finger) actually I would have more chances (shaking my hand vigorously , but that’s cheating right ?)

I want every single colour if i could fit it on my arm! Tell me what colour you picked okay?
Who would have thought that walking could burn a substantial amount of calories on a daily basis. It's been three weeks being with Rewalkz.Me and I’m amaze that I get “ out stepped” by many others out there. Currently this is where I stand on the most recent challenge.
Today i would like to share with you a recent article I've read from Runnersworld comparing the amount of calories burned of running vs walking and how much calories do you exactly burn. Even if you do not own a Fitbit and might be curious, you could do the math yourself but it's best if you do own one and join us on the next challenge which i would talk about more in my upcoming post.
A group of researchers from California State University have just published a new Run v. Walk paper. It’s the best one yet, and it confirms (to a very high degree) the data I presented in 2005, which was mostly based on this paper. Even better, this group of investigators have included the “after burn” in their calculations. That’s a first.
It’s also entirely appropriate. Whether you finish your workout by collapsing on the grass, drinking a smoothie, or taking a shower, your body continues burning more-calories-than-usual until it returns to its basal metabolic rate. These calories are “free,” yet real.
The subjects in the new study were 15 male college students, and 15 female, with an average weight of 156 lbs. One day they ran a treadmill mile in 10:00 minutes; another day they walked a mile in 18:36. Afterwards, they sat quietly for 30 minutes, by which time their metabolic rate had returned to normal.
Lastly if you do not own a Fitbit to do the calculation for you, here is a calorie-burn charts that adjust to your body weight. As noted, the above chart only works if you weigh 156.2 pounds. Which you probably don’t. Here’s a very simple chart that lets you compute your personal calorie-burn per mile per pound.
To use the above, simply multiply your weight (in pounds) by the number shown. For example, if you weigh 188 lbs, you will burn about 107 calories (188 * .57) when you walk a mile, and about 135 calories (188 * .72) when you run a mile.
As you can see, running a mile burns roughly 26 percent more calories than walking a mile. Running a minute (or 30 minutes, or an hour, etc.) burns roughly 2.3 times more calories than the same total time spent walking.
Do what you can to burn as many calories as possible in exercise and daily living either by exercising, walking,running or taking the stairs. How I stay lean year round is by being active 7days a week!
Here is my 7 days data taken from REWALKZ.ME. Clocking in 10000-12000steps on an average! How about you? if you have yet to add me as your friend my username is jasminedanker
