Swim suit season may be coming to an end, But that doesn't mean your exercise routine has to stop too, and now, there's a brand new way to take the guesswork out of your footwork.

Fitbit makes every step you take a step toward better fitness, even on your busiest days. Fitbit Ultra's super sensitive 3-D motion sensor tracks your day down to details a pedometer can't catch, showing your exact steps taken, calories burned, and distance traveled. The new altimeter tracks floors climbed so you can monitor this heart-healthy activity, encouraging you to take the stairs at home or work, or climb a little further on your next hike.

We all know solid sleep is hugely important to well-being and weight loss. But until now the question has been: just how do you track sleep? The answer - the Fitbit Tracker. Slip your Tracker into the Fitbit sleep wristband before bed, and it will keep a watchful eye as you slumber. When your info uploads to, you'll see not only how long you sleep, but how well you sleep.

The Tracker monitors how many times and how long you wake up during the night. Over time, you can apply what you learn to better understanding what helps you sleep better.

Check your real-time stats at any time with a quick glance at your Fitbit Ultra. Switch between steps, distance, calories burned, and floors climbed with a single button. With every peek, you'll get a little burst of motivation to fit in a few extra steps.
