I’ve written about my Fitbit before, probably years ago. It is a step counter and I am on my third one now. Normally they just count away and I get my 10,000 steps with no problems day after day, month after month. I even participate in challenges with other people on the internet, yes that is what passes for a social life for me. 😉
This works really well until I get 10,677 steps and it won’t sync up and here I am hanging there with this:
AAAARGH! I uninstall the app, reinstall, reconnect the bluetooth connections and discovered that somewhere along the way my Fitbit has attempted a firmware upgrade which is what has probably upset my competitive process here. So as usual, things calmed down around the fourth restart and at about 1:00 am I got a sync (click for a larger view):
So I got my steps and I actually got an adrenaline bonus sprint by getting stressed about whether I would get my steps counted for the right day. Yes, I am a step-geek.
