This is Brian Bennett for cnet.com and today we're taking a first look at the Fitbit Ultra.
The Ultra may be tiny, even what some what would call cute, but this little fitness gadget packs plenty of slick abilities.
Costing 99.95, the Fit Bit is basically a high tech pedometer that you clip on and wear all day.
The idea is for the Fitbit Ultra to record your movements which you then analyze using powerful data tools online.
Shaped like a clip, the Fitbit Ultra weighs under half an ounce.
It has a tiny strip like OLED screen that's easy to read.
Pressing the device is one button cycles through steps taken, stories climbed, a flower graphic that shows your current activity level by growing or shrinking and the time.
A USB bay station charges the Fitbit Ultra, connects to Maxim PCs and wirelessly and automatically syn data when you're within 15 feet.
It even can track the amount and quality of your sleep.
iOS and now a new Android app make checking your Fitbit status on the go easier.
The Fitbit Ultra isn't perfect though.
Unlike more expensive fitness gadgets, it doesn't measure running routes or log speed and time data.
It also isn't waterproof so I don't recommend using it for activities like swimming or taking it out in soaking rainstorms.
Some of the more compelling features like detailed activity reports and personal trainer functions cost extra.
I'm Brian Bennett and this has been a first look at the Fitbit Ultra.
