1. Paced on the spot because you're only a few hundred steps from your goal.

No matter how stupid you may look.

2. Got unnecessarily upset when you forgot to sync your Fitbit before midnight.

Because that means every single bit of your hard work is lost.

3. Or wanted to cry after realising you'd been walking around with a dead Fitbit all day.

4. Taken the Workweek Hustle Challenge a little too seriously.

I took 59,879 steps in the Workweek Hustle challenge! #fitbit and beat @anniejackson_uk 😏

8. And got a little too excited when you received a notification about a new award you just earned.

I climbed 4,000 floors with my #Fitbit and earned the 747 badge.

9. Compulsively checked your wrist several times in an hour.

FYI anyone who doesn't care is a hater.

The amount of sleep I get is so inconsistent lol but gosh darn do I love my Fitbit!!!!

And suddenly it becomes your life's mission to know why you're always so restless at night.

12. Deemed all exercise pointless if you leave your Fitbit at home.

NBC

13. And refused to move when your Fitbit is on charge.

14. Considered buying your Fitbit some jewellery to make it look a little more presentable.

Because let's face it, Fitbits aren't exactly the prettiest accessory in the world.

"IT'S MUCH MORE THAN THAT, OK? CAN PEDOMETERS TRACK YOUR SLEEP?! I DON'T FUCKING THINK SO."
