Hi guys, I was just wondering how many of you guys have used FitBit:http://www.fitbit.com and how do you compare that with DB? Speaking strictly based on website here, but I do like the Google Health and RunKeeper integration (if you get the gadget).

I find the Fitbit website easier to enter data and your created foods / exercises are maintained in a accessible log unlike in DB where you either bookmark them or hunt for them when you need it.

I am also on iOS3 which means DB on mobile is no go and I am going to be upgrading to an Android in the future and I doubt the DB Android app would come up to speed like the iOS one anytime soon.

If I am a diehard iPhone user like forever, DB would be great and it has been but I am trying to find ways to make my life easier.

What do you guys think?

To be honest i’ve never heard of the website

What I like most about Dailyburn are the challenges and for as far as i know DB is the only site having this feature
So I will take a look at fitbit but i’m not planning leaving DB

I think FitBit still needs improvement with the exercise data entry – for one it is not as sophisticated as DB. Also DB has a range breakdown for protein, carbs even with a Free Account. As far as I am concern, its the only Fitness website that features this.

But I do hope DB will take cues from FB to make data entry more efficient ie displaying favorite foods / recipes / food search / nutritional log in a single page – making data entry more efficient.
