I got a fitbit a week ago, it tracks things like distance, steps, and calories burned without any hassle. I've run more since I got one.

I'm wondering how accurate it could be though, it uses an accelerometer along with some algorithms to determine everything. So activities that don't involve much movement (pushups, pull-ups, and bike riding) don't indicate much activity. Does anyone else have a fitness tracking device?

I don't know, I've always been extremely skeptical about things like that. I've seen way too many products try to go beyond the boundaries of what's technologically possible to believe that the Fitbit's data is consistently accurate.
