Yeah, I used one for about a year, then gave up after the novelty wore off. I found myself getting up early, walking a bazillion miles to get "steps", and then crashing as the day wore on. Eventually, I found that I was getting pretty darn close to the "recommended steps" on any given day just by going about my normal routine, so the Fitbit lost its usefulness and I ditched it. I have never trusted Fitbit's security promises, and now I know why. They have lots of data to sell, and have no shame in doing so once the tide turns.
