The $99.95 Fitbit Flex is light, small, feature-packed, and very comfortable to wear. Wrapping around the wrist, the Flex can track sleep, steps, and the calories you burn.

Thin, light, and spartan

The only indicator on the Fitbit Flex is a small array of LED lights. You tap the screen to illuminate them and to initiate sleep tracking mode.

Comfy yet ready for action

It takes a little doing, but once the Flex's strap is attached, the device stays put.

Its own Bluetooth network

Once you connect the bundled USB Bluetooth adapter to a PC or Mac, the Flex can enjoy its own private Bluetooth network.
