Got a FitBit for Christmas

I received a FitBit Alta HR as a Christmas gift and like it generally although I don’t track pedometer steps as much anymore because of some osteoarthritis in my back and knees. I like the sleep and HR tracker as it pretty much confirmed I don’t get enough sleep. I really don’t know if I agree with the assessment that I am in excellent cardio shape (especially since I deal with inflammation quite frequently because of my neurological meds). Not really sure how it figured out the resting heart rate either.

I have to charge it about every 5 days but enjoy that it displays text messages too from my phone.

I wish Fitbit was more transparent about these kind of things… Based on some vague answers from one of their support people, the “resting heart rate” is based on your heart rate while sleeping.
