Fitbit becoming less accurate over time?

I have a Fitbit flex I've been wearing for about eight months now. In the past couple months I've started tracking my runs with the RunKeeper app, and when I compare that with the fitbit the flex is way off --- up to 20% off in distance. The weird part is, this seems to be a new thing --- when i first got the flex I compared it a few times with google maps of known distances, and I wasn't getting these huge discrepancies. I tried manually entering stride length in the fitbit settings, but doesn't seem to have helped. Any suggestions as to why this might be happening? Has anyone else noticed this with their flex?

Fitbit snowflake: which one will work for me?

It's that time of year again when the REI dividend is in the air, and I am thinking about a Fitbit (though if a Jawbone is really what I want, persuade me). Criteria that are making this difficult inside. [more inside]

What's a good site/app for tracking and graphing manually inputted data?

What's a good site/app for tracking and graphing manually inputted data? I do not own a Fitbit or Jawbone, but I'd like to manually input the reading of a pedometer every day, and then be able to see graphs that show me, for example, how well I've done over the last month, or that I tend to have fewer steps on, say, Tuesdays. I'd also like to track and manually input things like: kilometers cycled, pages read, and other categories that I might come up with. I've seen Daytum, Beeminder and some others, and am keen on being able to input via a phone app, and would also prefer a free service. Can anyone recommend the best tools for this? Thank you.

Fitbit? One or Flex?

Due to events beyond the scope of this AskMe, high-intensity exercise is currently off the table for me. I need to stay active in order to manage a bunch of minor but chronic health conditions, though, and I know from previous experience that gamification works really well to keep me on target. So I'm in the market for a Fitbit or something like one -- I have a pedometer app for my phone, but that doesn't work so well for on-all-day functionality. But which fitbit? [more inside]

Best Pedometer App?

I'm looking for an iPhone pedometer app that will count my daily steps. I'd like it to automatically run in the background all the time, so I don't have to remember to open it each day. Any suggestions?

Nike + iPod Sport Kit transmitter positioning: Does it matter?

Nike + iPod Sport Kit, transmitter hacked into the tongue of my New Balance shoes: I run the same 4 mile route every time, but occasionally my pace is WAY off. Yesterday it read 3.19 miles at the end of my run, and I took a look at the transmitter to see that it was sideways inside the tongue. Is that why? [more inside]
