The Fitbit in its charging station

The Fitbit is a new personal-fitness tracking device that can track how many steps you've taken, as well as how long you sleep each night.

Here it is on its docking station, which doubles as a wireless antenna. When users get within 15 feet of the docking station, the device begins to sync up your latest activity to the Fitbit Web site.

The Fitbit

The Fitbit's design is almost symmetrical, except for one button which cycles through how many steps you've taken, how many calories you've burned, how far you've walked, and your current, overall fitness level.
