Founder James Park Reports That Fitbit Users Average About 6,000 Steps A Day, Introduces Us To The Flex

The Fitbit pedometer is a fun way to track your daily perambulations. They’ve launched a number of products over the past year including the One and the Aria scale.

At CES the company just announced the Fitbit Flex, a tiny wrist-worn pedometer that syncs wirelessly with your phone or PC and, in a world seemingly full of pedometers these days, is a cool little device.

We sat down with James Park, founder, and talked about the service and the new pedometer. He noted that many users are surprised by how few steps they take each day and that the average active Fitbit user hits about 6,000 steps a day.

The Flex will be shipping later this year for $99.
