    Yes, these fitness gadgets are fun to use but not necessary to keep yourself fit. When these bands were not in market that time also people were able to keep themselves fit. If I want to be fit I need enthusiasm to do exercise regularly not a fitness band. I agree that they are useful, it's good to keep track of your activities but they play very small part to remain fit. Sometimes it is good to enjoy natural life without any gadget or device.
