Pros: When you just can't find a good place to put your clip, wear your FitBit on your wrist Lots of color options!
Cons: It's a little bulky Can be hard to read the number of steps (but you can use your phone app for that instead of trying to see it on your wrist
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 pack of these for 4 colors total. I wear the black one the most but the other options are nice occasionally. They are great when I'm wearing a dress and don't have the pant pocket to clip my Fitbit inside.

Pros: Mobile and Website are modern looking, responsive, and inviting to browse.
Cons: No read out on the device.. only dots that blink to signify things (Good luck remembering)
Battery life is requiring charging every other day, and uses a proprietary connector that no one else but fitbit owners have.
inaccurate compared to hip worn trackers (when I was working on our apartment, had extra 25% steps compared to hip worn tracker)
the wrist piece breaks so easily, you'll need to super glue it back together over and over again. They fixed this in later versions of FitBit, but not here.. so be gentle when taking the piece in and out of the strap.
Other Thoughts: I think Fitbit knows what they're doing, but this device was an iteration on a arc of devices.. and I want something a bit more durable.

Cons: There is no way to turn the pedometer off when you finish a walk. It keeps counting steps until you take it off and connect it to a computer. Spoke to New Balance and they sent me to the manufacturer High Gear who confirmed: "With the VIA Active there is not a way to turn off the pedometer. " You can isolate a period by using the Odometer function but this is rather clumsy to do.
It also seems to count more steps than actually taken when compare to actual steps counted or other pedometers worn during the same walk.
Other Thoughts: If you

Pros: A cleverly designed tracking device. The rubber band is straight forward and surprisingly tough. I'm impressed on how well it monitors everything and overall does not cause any issues with my normal day to day. If you are counting calories and want to keep a solid grasp on how much you are burning a day. I believe this is the way to go.
The battery life on this thing is impressive, I only charged it once (when I first opened it) and its still going.
Cons: You do need to use their software to get the best result. There software is not bad but it means you need to use Fitbit.com for sure if you want the best results.
The first time setup attempts to be as straight forward as possible but as the device requires a PC or smartphone to be useful. No PC and No Smartphone means no information.
Be careful they are trying to get android support but at this time Android support is limited. Apple users are fine for the most part.
