2014 Review: FitBit Flex vs Weight Watchers ActiveLink

    We don’t have the activelink here in Canada, but I had thought it was an interesting product. I am glad you did this comparison because I’ve been thinking about getting a fitbit. I would have liked to try the fitbit force, but of course it has been pulled off the market. I might wait to see what fitbit comes up with next before I make a big purchase.

    • They just announced at my meeting last week they’re coming out with a new model. Maybe it will finally be in Canada now? IDK, I still like my FitBit a lot better. Now that WW has finally caught up you can get one and sync it with eTools!

    I believe that you can manually add activity to your active link. I have had mine for a year now and I add activity when I forget to wear it.
    It is diffidently a bummer that you have to pay $5 a month for it though. I am looking into a fitbit and I am like you if i am wearing something on my wrist like a watch I want it to be able to tell time.
    Thanks so much for your review.

    I just found out today that you can link to Fitbit up to you WW e-tools. That’s actually why I was googling for information to see if others dropped their activity link now that you can do this and if the activity points calculated from the Fitbit usage is comparable to the active link.

    Still looking for the answer, but thought I would share this information

    • Thank you so much for sharing! Someone tipped me off a few weeks ago that this would be happening, but I didn’t know exactly when and where to go. Thanks for the link – I’ve connected my FitBit now! 🙂

    I think the Fitbit wins purely because it looks nicer. And a $5 monthly fee, really? No thanks.
