Please know that I adore gadgetry. You got a wind-up, a battery-powered, a flywheel, a plug-in, or what?* Yep, I love them all. The fitbit I am wearing these days (when I remember to, that is a problem) is nothing more than a pedometer/watch combo. I liked it just fine until J friended me on fitbit—before this happened, I didn't even know it was a thing. Suddenly I could crush J weekly and the fitbit became a zillion times more fun.
