I started using my Fitbit on December 25, 2013. In the 40 months, it tells me I have walked 10.9 million steps ( 5,277 miles), an average of 9,000 steps a day. I have lost it twice and it has come back to faithfully serve me and sends me flattering badges (like the Africa one when I crossed 5,000 miles). I return the favor and religiously charge it once a week. To say it has kept me somewhat disciplined would be an understatement.
The company is celebrating its tenth anniversary and they shared some staggering numbers tracking the 60 million devices they have sold
- 3,724,731,035,482 steps taken (that’s 3.7 trillion)
- 1,480,356 trips around the world
- 3 Billion nights of sleep tracked
Here is a nice infograph on their history so far – click to enlarge
