    I am also thinking of getting one, like the look of the Samsung Gear Fit but Samsung are shooting themselves in head as it appears they do not allow for iPhone integration... Was looking at the fitbit force but it has been recalled over skin irritation.....

    Waiting to hear more about Samsung and whether the fitbit will be replacing the flex with a new model... Really want a display so I can see time... Battery life sounds good..

    I'll be going for a pebble when I pop to the states in the summer - the flex is great but if you need it as a watch also then it's no good.

    Why waiting to go to States? Price or is there's newer model? Had a quick look at Pebble after I saw your post but not keen on the design.... Still loving the look of the new Samsung Gear Fit and Fitbit Force - the one that makes your arm infected!!
