Staples iTunes Giftcard Giveaway

I was recently contacted by Staples to be a part of a summer fitness initiative, #StaplesFitClub, and was generously sent some amazing gadgets to test out. These products all work together to make getting fit and recording everything/tracking your goals a cinch, and I am having a blast so far!

The items I was sent include the iPad Mini, the FitBit One, and the FitBit aria scale with wifi. I was so giddy opening up the box, I love electronics, and I love fitness! Staples hit the nail on the head with this amazing combination!

Ok, so let’s talk about each item individually. First, the FitBit One. This little gadget attaches easily to your hip and tracks your steps, mileage, calories burned, and flights of stairs traveled. You can also wear it to bed to monitor your sleep activity which I found super cool. I put it on in the morning and forget it’s there, it’s really a no-fuss product. It really helps me to have mini goals for the day, like walk so many steps or climb so many flights of stairs. Being able to “check in” on myself right on the device during the day helps me to stay on track.

I was also sent by far the coolest scale I have ever seen in my life! The fitbit Aria  has Wi-Fi, yall! It works in conjunction with the FitBit. Once you set up a profile with FitBit, the scale will recognize you when you step on, and tells you your weight, body fat %, and BMI. Them, the information is sent to your FitBit profile (privately) so you can easily keep track of your progress and even set goals for yourself.

Then there is the iPad mini, which rounds out the group and brings it all together. I downloaded the FitBit app from the app store (free) and so when I open my app on my iPad, it shows my profile for how many steps I have walked that day, distance, stairs, etc. as well as my weigh in info form my scale, all together in one place, it’s seamless! The iPad I received has 16GB of space, a 7.9 inch backlit display and a 5MP camera with HD video recording. I will be doing lots of Facetiming with up to ten hours of battery life (that’s a lot of facetime!)

Not to mention I went to the app store and downloaded some fitness apps to my iPad to help me with my fitness goals. There are a ton to choose from, and the iPad and iTunes make it so simple to purchase and download right to your device instantly.

  6. I love my fitbit flex!

  7. fitbit!

  8. Stacey Niedzwiecki says:

    I think the fitbit sounds cool. Some days I wonder how much I’ve been walking.

  9. Haley S says:

    I love my fitbit but the scale sounds so cool!

  10. I didn’t know about the scale. It makes the fitbit even better.

  11. I’ve been seeing posts about #fitbit lately and think I’m going to get one soon. Having a desk job, I think it will help with motivation!!

  12. I love reading your blog. I have the fitbit zip that I love. But I would love to upgrade to the one! And the scale! Maybe if my zip dies. But even the zip is a great way to stay on track.

  13. They all sound awesome! I especially like the scale :)

  14. I already use FitBit (I have the FitBit Flex) so it would be awesome to use the gift card in order to purchase the Aria scale in order to get everything out of my FitBit that I can.

  15. ipad mini sounds the coolest because it is the most versatile. You can facetime, search the internet, and track weight loss with various apps.

  16. How fun! I have the FitBit Flex and I really love it. I’ve thought about getting the scale, as well. How cool!

  17. I already have a fit bit so the scale would complete the package!

  18. Allison says:

    Just bought the FitBit flex. Would love the scale to go with it.

  19. I’d definitely like to try the scale. I have a fitbit flex and I absolutely love it!

  20. I WANNNT AN IPAD

  21. Stephanie says:

    That is probably the COOLEST scale in creation (for getting fit). Will it take into consideration that you are pregnant instead of changing your BMI?

    • no, it actually has a warning to not use the scale pregnant b/c of BMI reasons haha. However, I am just using it now to make sure I don’t gain too much and will pick up with the other stuff after baby comes this fall!

  22. I can always use music!

  23. Heather says:

    I want to get the FitBit as I’m really curious about how I sleep. I wake up a few times during the night and it would be interesting to see how the FitBit interprets it.

  24. Karen H says:

    The Aria sounds cool! I already have a Fitbit Flex and an iPad, I’d love to be able to consistently synch my weight/BMI/Body Fat % from the scale. I’m pregnant now, so it’s not something I’d currently use, but definitely post-baby.

  25. I was just looking at fitbits the other day. Fun! Get ready to lose that iPad once Baby M arrives! Ha! Baby Z has completely taken over ours with his apps. :)

  26. The FitBit sounds like something right up my alley! I often wonder how much mileage I track each day at school, particularly just with walking around the classroom to help students or to pass papers back to them.

  27. I’m getting more curious about Fit Bits. Working from home now, I don’t get up and roam around as much as I used to (haha) so I need to get better about getting up every now and then to get the blood flowing!

  28. I LOVE my Fitbit One! I had the Ultra before it and loved it just as much. Not only are the products great but the company really stands by them. When my Ultra broke, Fitbit offered me a great deal to upgrade to the One.

  29. I want a Fitbit to track my activity and sleep!

  30. I’ve been curious about the Fitbit for a while, and the scale seems amazing! Although the scale WITH Fitbit seems like a perfect combo!

  31. The Ipad Mini sounds awesome- I’d love to be able to carry something besides my phone to use without having to drag around my macbook.

  32. The iPad mini is by far the coolest – it can do so many things and is so versatile.

  33. Lindsay says:

    The fit bit scale sounds cool! I’m getting a fit bit for my birthday!

  34. I would love to have the scale to go along with my Fitbit Flex! And I’ve been eyeing a mini iPad for a while!

    The FitBit so I could track everything!

  37. I am dying for a FitBit One. Everyone talks great about it. It seems that I am the only person who hasn’t tried it yet. :P

  38. The scale b/c I already have the fitbit flex and would love to see them work together!

  39. I would love to have the scale. That is a really neat addition.

  40. I’m interested in the Fitbit! If I won I would probably just stock up on some office supplies since I’ll be working from my home office this summer.

  41. I’d be all about the iPad mini!

  42. i would love the fitbit one. I have a desk job and try to keep active and the fitbit one would be a great motivator!

  43. Elizabeth says:

    The FitBit products look really cool. I want to get them! I love my ipad mini and I agree, ITunes has some really cool apps. I use my Nike app all the time when I am running. Thanks for the insightful post :)

  52. I would definitely love to try the scale, but an Ipad mini would be even better! :)

  53. Kelly D says:

    The fitbit Aria sounds the coolest since it will recognize me.

  54. I would be interested in the fitbit. I’ve heard alot about them, but haven’t purchased one yet.

  55. Krysten Moore says:

    The fit bit one sounds awesome because I love tools that help keep you healthy and active during the work day. And tracking your activity in your sleep is awesome too!

  56. Ashley Tucker says:

    I think the Fitbit sounds good because it makes tracking things easier,

  57. I think the FitBit sounds cool. When I have worn a pedometer before it really motivates me to stay active!

  58. I’ve been hearing a lot about the fitbit lately, and I would love to try it. Way cooler than a pedometer!

  59. I already have a Fitbit and the Aria scale (I love both so much), so I guess the iPad mini sounds the coolest to me, since it’s the one thing I don’t have. I could really use some new music for running, so that iTunes giftcard would really come in handy :)

  60. I’d be most interested in trying the FitBit. I don’t know if I’m ready to record my weight effortlessly yet (I try to shy from the scale), but would love to see my steps and any other information the FitBit can provide!

  61. The iPad mini sounds great. I have an ipad but sometimes it’s just too big, especially since I don’t have a smartphone. I
