Fashionably Fit


I know that being fit is important, just getting active and moving is key. Having a device that helps track your activity has been a big part of getting people moving and being active. However, to be perfectly honest, whenever I get dressed up to go to a function or even the movies with my honey, I don’t wear my Fitbit because it doesn’t go with my outfit. Yeah, I am a girl, and I want to look nice when I go out on date night. But we all know that when you do go out you do a lot of walking and dancing that you can’t even track. Well now you can! Thank you FUNKtional Wearables for blinging out my Fitbit! I no longer have any excuses not to wear my Fitbit. FUNKtional Wearables are fabulous!
