    I would use the device to help me get back on track. I have had 3 left knee surgeries. One was a full replacement and now it looks like the right needs replacement/surgery! Thanks for considering me.

    I have been obese all my life and fought very hard to always become a better, fitter me. I made the best decision of my life to have Gastric Bypass surgery and Fitbit has been there right with me along the way. With my Fitbit Aria and my Fitbit Flex, it has helped me to be motivated and have accountability to my struggles as well as my triumphs. My scale always sends me that congratulatory email when I lose weight and my whenever I look at my wrist my flex is there to motivate me to keep going! Using the #FitbitHTC would just give me that extra strength and motivation I always need. Let me show you how fit and successful I can be with the #FitbitHTC at my side!

    My current smartphone does not support my Fitbit Flex. I could use an upgrade. Fitbit is my life, just like my smartphone. Can’t leave home without either one! #FitbitHTC

    I would love to win this so that I can get my honey out of the dark ages he is at the fitbit ultra and a flip phone this would make it easier for him to sync and for us to be able to compete even when I’m away on a business trip. #FitbitHTC.

    It helps me to track items while on the road and encourage me to exercise rather than sit idle. It also helps with my mental health by keeping active. I’ve not had it for long but I can tell this is something I will be able to maintain.

    I lost my dog in October 2013 who is the one that kept me motivated. I was sad and started to become a couch potato. My kids who are training for the SF run marathon in July 2014 and use a Fitbit for training. Challenged me to train with them. I am only a walker but it has been the best thing for me. I walk twice every day. I track my food, wt, activity, BP, GL, sleep patterns and share it all with my doctors because 5 1/2 years ago I started having seizures and all of this has helped mentally and physically. I am very thankful for Fitbit and have recommend it to several of my friends who start doing it as well. Its great motivation. Thanks. Jean

    I’ve already lost 7.6 kg with fitbit, and I want to loose some 8,4 kg more and I know with Fitbit I’ll do it!!! Yes, I can! :)

    I don’t actually have a smartphone OR a Fitbit so this would be an amazing prize to win! I could log my workouts, calories burned, check my heart rate & other things! How awesome!

    I use my fitbit to record my walking, but need a way to track my bike rides. If this will work I would ride even more.

    I’ve been using my FitBit Zip with my computer. This would be so much better and encouraging – to be able to get an instant read-out and compare to yesterday’s total – as opposed to waiting until I got home to check my computer.
    I would love to own such a phone!

    Workouts using Fitbit make it a whole lot easier to motivate

    I am addicted to my fitbit, only taking it off for charging. I am in a group of 30 teachers at my school and we motivate each other to keep moving and stay fit, with a little taunting on the side! Only problem is, my cell phone is too old and is not able to synch so I don’t get track my progress throughout the day! I would love a new HTC ONE smartphone with built-in fitbit to give me up to the minute information on my progress. I’m constantly telling everyone how much I love my fitbit. It had certainly made me more aware of how many steps in a day I do and motivates me to get back up to reach my goal of at least 5 miles a day. I set my alarm to go off daily, a gentle wake-up after using the sleep function to record my movements, this has allowed me to modify my sleeping arrangements, such as pillows, temperature, position in order for me to improve my sleep!

    I love, love, LOVE my fitbit!

    If I were to win a Fitbit and HTC One (M8) I would be able to improve my fitness through the use of these great technologies. Having a smartphone that has Fitbit built in would be very handy and would allow for easy entering of info into my account. When you have the technology at your fingertips it makes it so you have no excuses and allows for much greater success and results! #FitbitHTC

    I found out about Fitbit from my cousin last week and decided that I needed this as part of my journey to a Healthy and Happy Life. Two years ago, I quit smoking cigarettes after 44 years. I used programs and Chantix to help me succeed in this step to a Healthy Life.

    My next step was weight.. Several months ago I was diagnosed with Medical Obesity and was referred to a Clinic to loose weight. I religiously followed this program and got down from 259 pounds and am currently at 194 pounds. I feel so much better and alive. I still need to lose another 19 pounds but in addition to losing weight now, I also want to increase my exercising without over exerting myself.

    My cousin told me about your product and I just started using it for the last couple of days.

    I can log my calories, instantly measure my BP, calories burned and it all makes it part of a game.

    I walk in the park now as part of my routine and it is so pleasurable. I enjoy every day and the people around.

    I sent a picture of myself on Facebook and about my Fitbit and several family members said that they to were using Fitbit and asked me to invite them so we could encourage each other on our healthy journey as a family.

    I think that your new product would help me on this journey as well as staying in touch with my family who are out in California and I am here in Florida.

    Despite winning this gift. I have won it already with gains that I have made this far and now moving forward with this new tool that will take me to the finish line of a healthy and happy life.

    I love my flex, currently I have an older flip phone, with the HTC I would be able to track my steps more accurately and get Fit faster. HTC = Happy Me.

    HTC and ME let it Be! I would be on top of my game with an HTC phone and #FitbitHTC usage. I would be able to track my activity easier and get in shape quicker.

    With a smartphone, I could take my fitness to the next level by having the opportunity to record my calories and water immediately. I would be able to see the immediate results, rather than when I am at work and finally can sync with my computer.

    I need the added incentive to turn my life around for the better.

    Thank you,
    Heathet

    I would use it to increase my level of exercise. I want to become more fit to keep up with the 3 new grandkids I’m going to have here in the next few months.

    48 lbs down since 1/1/14. This success is due in large part to tracking my food and activities with my Flex. I’m shrinking so a smaller smartphone would look more proportional to my smaller body! Love my Flex. Absolutely the best tool EVER for helping lose weight! THANK YOU!!! XOXO

    Id upgrade to the wristband as im impressed with the fitbit mini one that clips to belt.
    Ive only had it 7 weeks and ive really increased my fitness by measuring my steps and milage while out with my two beagles. Fitbit is for all ages and all abilities. Im currently on a weight loss program with the hospital and reccommended this device to others as I found it so easy to install and use.
    When we go on a group dog walk I post on the site how many miles we have covered and steps taken.
    A couple of weeks ago I clocked 27 miles in one week over five walks snd 62 thousand steps.
    Not bad for someone whos very overweight, but is taking steps to alter this with the help of this device.

    FitbitHTC for Me to help set my thin self free. I need a HTC to maximize my fitbit flex tracking and be all that I can Be! The only thing better than having a fitbit flex is having a HTC One (M8) to track it on.

    I have now been using my Fitbit Flex for 1 month and have found it to be a great motivator in setting goal and targets. I would use my HTC one m8 for keeping me motivated and achieving further personal goal. I use Zombie run 5k in conjunction with my flex and would look forward to many more miles, step targets. Love my flex as never had the motivation in the past.

    after having heart surgery in March I have used Fitbit HTC One to help in my rehab

    I’ve been wanting to get fitbit to help track my fitness better. Having a phone with it built in would be fabulous since I always have my phone with me. I could use the fitbit to compete with myself and do better than the day before.

    Both myself and my wife have fitbit flex. We both are against each other for personal goals and it’s like the rocky films in my house. ha ha. But I would give the HTC to my wife as she does not have a phone that is supported by bluetooth low energy. But I do. she syncs with a laptop but it would up the fitness fight between us with her live updates as well. Eye of the Tiger!!

    I am 39 years old with 3 beautiful children that I would like to see grow old and know as adults. My father died of a heart attack at 56, so I did not get that. Last year I was weighing in at 260 and had a heart attack.

    Wake up call right?! Lost some weight (215), got better, got out of cardiac rehab and with out the structure and support fell off the wagon. Ballooned back to 235 and started to sink into a depression. Vowed to get back on track and started working on the basics.

    NOW I am back on board now with my Fitbit Flex (Fathers Day gift in Tangerine) and have become obsessed with tracking every minute little detail that I can. However, I have an HTC One and manually updating/syncing is painful and inhibits to some degree the instant gratification and motivation you get from watching your dashboard jump every time you put in the work.

    I don’t want to lose my motivation again due to little stuff like that. Youknow, death by a thousand cuts.

    Hook me up and and watch me win the war for my body!

    I would use it to get in shape for my wedding/honeymoon. I recently got engaged and would love to ramp up/begin working out to impress my girl!
