This evening I returned the FitBit I purchased a few days ago. It wasn't what I was looking for.
So I guess it's best to define what it is that I was looking for. Basically, I want everything that Strava does without having to lug my phone around. I thought that the FitBit was that, but it lacks one important element - a GPSr. I thought it had GPS fu in it, but it appears that I was mistaken.
So, instead, I've ordered a cheap armband thingy so that I can carry my phone without wearing a fanny pack. And maybe that'll be all I want.
The alternate is a $150 watch from Nike, and that's just a little too much to pay.
