I decided on the fitbit because there is no monthly charge like with the active link. It also does more.

I found if I wear it on my hip, I will get lots of points....on necklace or bra, nothing.

I just lost it this week.

I have had a fitbit since last September, so now I just count steps.

I gave up on active link after the clip broke after just a few months and they wanted to charge me for a new one. plus it was back ordered for over a month and I was still being charged the monthly fee.


There was some discussion during the meetings, that it made a big difference where you wore it. for example, if you did alot of walking, then you needed to wear it clipped to your waist.

The Fitbit Flex is not available yet. It should be soon. They will email you when it is available.

I have an ActiveLink, and it's OK - I like that it puts up my activity points so automatically on my WW tracker - but I have had trouble with taking a 1.5 mile walk and then walking around in normal life all day and only getting 1 point (disappointing) - so I am waiting for the wristband FitBit to come out (has it yet?) as I will for sure swtich to that!

Hi Everyone! I had an active link but was not happy with it at all. I walk 4 miles in the morning for my exercise and try to stay active during the day. When I put my walking time into a WW activity calculator, I get 7 AP. At the end of the day, the active link usually gave me 1 AP, sometimes 2 AP. When I talked to my leader she said that you don't earn points until you hit your baseline. So I redid my assessment - not wearing it on my morning walk - but nothing changed. Still 1 - 2 AP points per day. WW swears it is working properly but it did nothing to motivate me, only frustrated me. My friend who is at goal loves hers. She and I spent the day together and at the end of the day, she had 8 activity points, and I had 1, which doesn't seem right. If WW had been more helpful, I might have kept it. I switched to Fit Bit and am thrilled with it. Has anyone else had issues with the Active Link?
