Fitbit Flex goes on sale in UK

£80 or pay a bit extra for 'Tangerine' dream

Fitbit Flex goes on sale in UK

For those of you that welcome the collision between fitness and tech we're glad to give you some good news: the Fitbit Flex going on sale online and in John Lewis stores.

The calorie-checking, sleep-pattern dissecting activity monitor vibrates when you have achieved a goal - and allows you to check yourself out online, or, via the magic of Bluetooth, on your compatible phone.

It's available in black or 'slate' (dark grey) for £79.99, or you can pay out another £22.99 for teal, navy or tangerine. We're assuming the last one is going to be snapped up by Blackpool fans - the only other people on the planet to use tangerine as a colour description.
