My first Fitbit was always clipped to my bra..one of their suggestions. I don't like having a battery close to my skin and now the recommendations are a bit different. With this one, I threaded a ribbon through the clip and use a safety pin to pin the Fitbit to my clothing ...I can put it almost anywhere. In my work clothes, I have pockets, so the fitbit rides in a pocket as I mow or walk. If no pocket, it may be clipped to the neckline of whatever I am wearing. I never use the wrist thing they included for sleep. Again, pockets in my nightgown have solved that though for a very long time I pinned it in various places...before I discovered the pockets!
I try to never put it in exactly the same place...though it IS in my pocket by my hip a lot....and I don't put the fitbit against my skin. Hope that answers your questions. It is triggered to count steps by an up/down motion.
Thanks for the SparkGoodie...sweet of you. Yes, my sandals are getting quite a workout..I wear SAS and will soon need new ones. My mowing shoes..also SAS...are already worn out, but still going. Feet don't hurt. 3 days ago
I do something similar. Often wake once very early to use bathroom, go back to sleep. During the summer I wake at 4...try to sleep till 5:30 but then I am UP. Some of this has to do with the amt of light...but also, as you say, body rhythms that are used to a certain start. So long as you are getting enough sleep at some point, why not roll with the schedule your body wants. The earlier I get up, the earlier I want to head towards bed. Usually take a book and read till I can conk out. Glad you can make the best of the schedule your body has chosen 4 days ago
