I've had my ZIP for only a week. Wearing clipped to my bra or the center of my shirt so far.

my question - are you finding that the ZIP is tracking correctly wearing it on a chain? does it matter if the ZIP dangles or bounces? I guess I can put on a chain and tuck into my bra?

I don't mind the ZIP against my body at all, and the clasp is very secure, but I am noticing that b/c the clasp is so secure it is stretching my clothes slightly when I remove the ZIP. So, I'd like something I can attach the ZIP to and just put around my neck.

I have a flex that I wear on my right wrist. It pretty much just replaced the hair tie I always have there. :-)

I have a ONE, I usually clip it to the right side of my pants/skirt (I have a harness for it, so it doesn't fall off and get lost). If I have a pair of pants on with pockets, it goes inside the pocket. If I have a dress on, I clip it to my shorts that I wear underneath my skirt.

I have a ONE. Usually wear it (I wear polo shirt at work) under the last button on my shirt. I use it as a watch when working. Or if home, on my bra strap or neckline of tee shirt.

I tried wearing mine several places, but ended up cutting off an old belt, punching holes in it, and am wearing it successfully on my ankle. The strong clip on Fitbit One attaches tightly to the belt. It is convenient, comfortable, and secure. Wore it on a trip to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and got through airport security with no problems--did not need to remove it. emoticon

How does everyone attach their fitbit to their bra or waistband? I was looking on the fitbit site and I couldn't see a clip for it.

Thanks!

I found that wearing my fitbit zip on my bra was not accurate. I now wear it on my waist and it never misses a step. I am getting approximately 500 more steps now!

To Giniemie, I've been wearing my flex for a week and have been wearing it in the shower and when I went swimming. They are supposed to be waterproof, how did yours fry?

On my left wrist. I first had it logging as non-dominant, but I thought that it was too sensitive so I changed it to dominant and it seems to be pretty accurate.

I used to wear my Fitbit Flex on my non-dominant wrist, but because my hands are often full and my arm isn't swinging it wasn't very accurate. I now wear it on my ankle and I love it!

I too clip my FITBIT to my bra - facing inside directly in the middle but now am questioning the accuracy. I use to have a SPAT unit - WHICH BROKE :( but seemed very similar to this FITBIT I now have with the exception of NO LIGHTS!!

When using my SPAT I wore it on my shoe, as recommended, and this did seem to really track accurately ALL my steps/activity. Only issue was THAT'S how the SPAT broke!!! I now think that by wearing my FITBIT in/on my bra that it's not as accurate but the unit itself is safer from falling off and or breaking!!

Just wondering what others think??? Would love to hear feedback!!

I always keep my Fitbit clamped to my bra strap. I have never had a problem with it showing through clothes. I do attach it to my shorts if I am exercising on the stationary bike because I have found it does not accurately track my "steps" if on my bra then.

In the morning I strap it to my pj top. I usually take it off when I jump into the shower. One morning, I threw my pjs in the washing machine, not thinking it was still strapped on. I went to work and realized I didn't have it on. When I got home, I looked on the counter where I usually keep it and it wasn't there. I panicked when I realized it was in the washer! I ran to the washer and there it was still clipped and still working! LOL! So is it fair that I counted the spinning in the washer? LOL!!

I wear my Fitbit flex on my wrist and never take it off except for swimming laps because I want to track my lap swimming separately. I love that I can wear it in the shower or in the pool when just in there for fun. I used to always forget to put my old pedometer on every morning, so this is great!

I would prefer to put my Zip on my bra, but when I do, it doesn't seem to track as well. That may also be related to another problem I was having, so I might try it again. Right now, it is in my right front pocket on the inside, so I can't lose it!
