In Short

Fitbit is a company based out of San Francisco, California United States that focuses on fitness and activity trackers. Many of the trackers are worn on the wrist like a bracelet. However, earlier models like the Fitbit One can clip onto pants or shirt lapels.

The trackers can sync to a Fitbit mobile app found on iOS, Android, Windows, and Windows Phone.

The range or products include the Zip, One, Flex, Charge, Charge HR, and Surge and range in price from $59 to $249. Fitbit also makes a 'smart scale' called Aria for keeping track of your weight (it syncs over Wi-Fi).
