I’m not a very good pet owner…
Well, let me explain. You remember the 90’s with the old school virtual pets that you had to feed, play with and take care of so they wouldn’t die? Those things were so fun!
So, imagine my excitement when the new Fitbit Versa came out and included it’s own virtual pet.
The setup allows you to choose from a few different cats or dogs, like the image above. I went with the cat, because cats rule.
How the Fitbit Virtual Pet works:
Your virtual pet expects you to meet your step goal each day, because that’s what a good Fitbit pet would do! For every 10% that you reach of your step goal the pet’s food bowl will fill with treats and if you make it to your goal at the end of the day, your pet will remain forever loyal.
This is where I’ve failed. One of my goals right now is to work on my step goal of 10,000 steps a day. On average, I’ve reached about 8,000 steps a day and this hasn’t made my kitty happy. My kitty has left me and has left a little note behind to tell me what I need to do for him to come back. So sad.
I really love this idea from Fitbit and while my kitty isn’t happy right now, my motivation to increase my steps has improved! My daughter and I have been taking daily walks, she loves to feed my kitty. I also find myself getting up more just so I can get the next treat. It’s silly, but it works!
The Fitbit Versa app feature has been such a life saver. Most weight lifters will understand the need for a calculator. When following a program, there is a lot of % of weights to use. We fumble, looking for our phones during a workout or looking for someone nearby that is really good at math.. that’s not me.
Having a calculator right there during my workouts has been such a handy thing.
There are a ton of apps to load onto your Fitbit Versa, even a Starbucks app, Pandora so you can listen to music directly from your watch, to a handy flashlight and more. There are some really great apps on there for runners too!
Really, it’s all about moving more and Fitbit Versa is there to not only motivate you, encourage you but to give you the tools to help you live a more active lifestyle.
