The Flex itself only sports 5 tiny LED dots which indicate percentage of the goal distance walked that day. If two dots are displayed, it means the wearer has achieved 2/5 of their daily goal.
Pull out your Bluetooth 4.0 device and load the Fitbit app. The Fitbit flex will promptly sync using Bluetooth 4.0 and display all sorts of additional information.
It shows historical data for distance walked and sleep patterns along with letting the user easily track water and food consumption. There is also a web interface with even more info and the Flex ships with a tiny USB syncing dongle for owners without a Bluetooth 4.0 or NFC smartphone.
Fitbit claims the Flex’s battery lasts five to seven days. I’ve used the Flex for just over a week and the rubber band is looking rough around the edges.
