Fashion Accessories That Made Me Love My Fitbit
Anyone wearing a fitness tracker knows the addictive gratification that comes from the buzz around your wrist when you hit your goal. Iâ€™ll admit itâ€™s hard to beat the feeling of checking my Fitbit app and happily discovering Iâ€™m close to hitting my daily goalâ€”and itâ€™s only 2pm. That hasnâ€™t always been the case, though. At first, I would only wear my Fitbit Flex when I was working out, but couldnâ€™t bring myself to wear it all day. Wearing a fitness tracker with work clothes felt like wearing sneakers with a formal dress. I just couldnâ€™t get over how much it stuck out like a sore thumb from the rest of my outfit.
Hereâ€™s where one of the perks of working at Griffin changes the whole scenario.
I started wearing Uptown Band and it completely changed my thoughts on fitness trackers being incompatible with fashion. The leather wrap bracelet is exactly the type of accessory Iâ€™d already wear, but hidden inside is my Fitbit Flex. THIS is exactly how I will wear a fitness tracker 24-7. The neutral toffee matches everything I wear and Iâ€™ve worn it every day since.
Uptown Band is the perfect accessory for work and evening looks, but when Iâ€™m heading to the gym or for a run on the greenway, I switch to Ribbon Wristband. The super-stretchy, comfortable material looks just like a ribbon hair tie, and has a hidden pocket for your tracker. Iâ€™ll confess to having the Ribbon Wristband in one of every color available, but Iâ€™m really digging the new geo-print pattern, too.
The upside to wearing my fitness tracker as a fashion accessory is how incredibly detailed and accurate the daily summaries are. Now that Iâ€™m always wearing my Fitbit, I end up tracking all those little steps that add up at the grocery store or going from my desk to the coffee machine. Before Griffin started making fitness tracker accessories, I didnâ€™t think I would ever be the person that was consumed with daily step totals. Now that I can do it without sacrificing my look of the day, Iâ€™m definitely that person. The satisfaction of checking your fitness progress everyday is surprisingly addictiveâ€”in a good way!
