Wearable tech needs to be sustainable, too @Fitbit
A package arrived today – a replacement wristband for the Fitbit Flex. This is the second replacement, which does not say much for the durability of the Flex, purchased in mid-July this year.
Shipping took its time: Fitbit confirmed that they’d send a replacement on November 26, and it arrived today. That’s three weeks and a day (which unfortunately does not look good if you’re hoping for last-minute delivery of a Fitbit Christmas gift purchased online).
Underlining that if #wearabletech is going to be successful long term, it should also be sustainable, here is the box that the band came in – measuring 26cm x 20cm x 15cm!
By my reckoning, Fitbit could have packed in around around 20 “FlexTM Accessory Wristband”s – and probably should have done, since then I’d be sure to have enough to last the first year’s warranty.
