Fitbit the personal fitness and activity tracker has now been launched in the U.K. The Fitbit Ultra is a small electronic device that you wear on your body to measure your daily activity. Fitbit then syncs that information to a personal web profile on Fitbit.com showing you detailed information on your activity and sleep patterns.

The Fitbit Ultra tracks steps, distance, sleep patterns and even stairs climbed via a state-of the-art altimeter, and includes an on-device display for real-time feedback. Recent studies show that adding stair climbing into a daily routine is proven to lower body fat, minimise waist circumference and burn up to 400% more calories than walking alone. Fitbit Ultra’s accelerometer and state-of-the-art altimeter technology work together to track movement from climbing the stairs, so there is no confusion with taking a lift or escalator. Online, Fitbit.com compares daily climb activities to well-known landmarks around the world such as The Eiffel Tower and Machu Picchu and even Big Ben’s 389 steps!
