Triathlon to kick off Hunting Park Family Fun & Fitness Day

You can miss out on a good amount of motivation if you only log activity when absolutely necessary. We mentioned the Jawbone Ups jack, which has to physically interface with the phone to sync. This is cumbersome, as it requires physically removing the bracelet from your wrist, popping off an easily lost piece, and plugging it into your phone for a few seconds (Jawbone recommends doing this twice a day). Despite all the physical steps, we found this slightly less annoying than flipping Bluetooth on and off for the Fuelband to conserve battery, but neither are really optimal. The Fitbit Flex, like other Fitbit devices, syncs wirelessly with a dongle plugged into your computer any time the two of them cross paths. This is delightfully hands-off, even if it requires your computer to be on and alert all the time to receive your updates.
