They come in a variety of colors ranging from neutral blacks to colorful pinks and blues. Many of these “bracelets” are actually called Fitbits and are currently all the rage in the health community. Fitbit is a new technology that syncs your activity and sleep to your smartphone. Many Payton teachers and students are taking part in this fitness trend and buying a Fitbit.

What is so great about the Fitbit? Why is everyone so hyped to buy these $100 exercise bracelets? Delia Arroyo, a fitness professional states that, “Fitbit can improve your health by being a guide to track activity, eating habits, and can motivate you to keep working to achieve a healthier lifestyle.” Fitbit uses technology to track your daily steps. You can set a goal of how many steps you aim to walk a day, or a goal of calories to burn. Delia Arroyo believes “everyone can benefit from the Fitbit, from novice exercisers to seasoned athletes.”
