This is so cool a product! But with many personal gadgets nowadays, I would prefer it to be integrated to my watch or to my cellphone.

I'm impressed with the design, functionality, and usability of this product. It is compact and light yet does so much (Garmin tends to be larger). I agree with t. alex that integrating the product into other more common items should be added to their roadmap. For example, it could be an add-on (like OnStar). I personally use the Nike SportBand and find that helpful (except I believe there is no stopwatch function or heart rate monitor). I do have two tech savvy friends that have been using the fitbit for quite awhile and they've enjoyed being able to post their results on social media.

A MUST READ ARTICLE FOR PRODUCT DESIGNERS This is a beautiful article that has probably missed the eye of most of the users - this is apparent from the number of comments posted :) Rather than discussing about the product, I'd like to lay stress on the issues that have been discussed in this article. These issues are not only related to the portable, low-power product category, but they throw light on what situations a team can face while making a product & releasing it in the market. This article is thus, a must-read for all the prospective designers. Let us take this further & exchange our experiences.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
