Top Fitness Gifts For Beginners And Advocates This Christmas

FitBit Fitness Tracking Device.
There are lots of calorie counting devices out there, but this one seems to be the easiest to use at the best price.  I haven't tried it, myself, but I've tried others.  My friend, who uses this device, says it's great because it's tiny, it syncs with devices great (and with MyFitnessPal.com), it's accurate, it has a great social function, and so much more. I'm thinking I may have to get one for myself (because I've been underwhelmed by the BodyBugg, BodyMedia, and Nike Fuel Band options).
