For Active Dad-- Fitbit Flex – is a wrist band activity tracker that tracks your daytime activities such as steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, and active minutes. At night, it measures your sleep cycle, helps you learn how to sleep better, and can even be set to wake you up in the morning. What’s great about Fitbit Flex is that it is with you at all times; you can even wear it in the shower. Fitbit Flex is fully focused on helping you achieve your fitness goals. You can set your own goal (such as walking 10K steps/day) and its bright LED indicator lights will illuminate to show you how your day is stacking up against it. It’s the first all-day wristband that wirelessly syncs all your info via Bluetooth 4.0 to select smartphones (including Apple and Android devices) and computers, giving you access to your stats on the go without ever having to plug it in. Flex comes in 5 stylish colors – black, teal, slate, navy, and tangerine - and allows you to easily switch wristband colors to match your daily style. $99.95
