    Hi everyone- this is my first post, please be kind!

    I'm currently looking to start running, nothing too crazy as I'm a complete beginnner, just the couch to 5K as that seems pretty achievable.

    I really want to monitor my exercise and was thinking about investing in a Fitbit- does anyone have one and if so do you find it useful? I've found this one online: fitbit-flex that's in the sale but has anyone found any cheaper? I don't want to spend a fortune initially!

    Thanks in advance for your replies

    I have a Fitbit. But personally prefer a Garmin for running. Fitbit is fine, imo, to see how many steps you walk.
