I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review
There are 5 big things you want to know about the MotoX phone that really haven’t got a ton to do with it’s awesome features, speakers, sound, or speed. They are just things that really stand out to ME as a mom, wife, woman and consumer and are the kinds of things I want to know about a device I’m considering purchasing .
1. The screen is big enough to see what you want to see
2. The phone itself has a built in protective case
3. It is contoured to fit the shape of your hand (so it’s comfy….see #6)
4. The battery can’t and won’t fall out
5. It’s sealed. If you drop it in the ‘loo like my friend Jen did, it’ll survived (don’t try that at home but if you are anything like me, things happen sometimes).
6. The MotoX has 13 HOURS of talk time. I’m not sure even I could use that much in a day. I could try though.
Plus, it has all kinds of great features, clear sound, clear graphics for display and does all of the things you want a smartphone to do.
My husband also really likes that you can download a flashlight app. It’s his favorite thing about smartphones.
And now we come to the Fitbit Flex. My new personal challenger. See, I hate losing. I do. At least, at games. So knowing I’m supposed to get 10,000 steps each day, I feel like I have to “show” Fitty (what, you don’t name everything?) I can, will and DO meet that goal daily.
So what can I tell you about the FitBit Flex?
1. It’s really easy to use.
2. It’s silicone so it’s flexible
3. It might make your arm a little sweaty
4. You may find you are challenging yourself to do more even if you are lazy or hate to work out or don’t have time.
5. It comes in other colors besides black.
6. Syncing the FitBit with other devices helps me keep track and I can’t “hide” from myself.
7. I can’t seem to find friends who actually use the friends feature on FitBit so if you want to be friends, let’s connect. I have a lonely list.
Your MotoX will play nicely with the FitBit Flex. So you can casually see if you are getting enough steps in for the day without being home or on a specific computer. It’s a pretty sweet thing, being able to keep track from your phone.
