I literally placed 2 Fitbit Flex on pre-order as soon as they were accepting pre-orders online. However, Until today, I have not heard anything from Fitbit about any shipping information or release dates. I started getting curious and I started searching online for more info about the release date, comes to find out that BestBuy just started selling them! I quickly went to BestBuy’s website and checked if the BestBuy closest to me has it in stock, surely enough they did, I rushed to them right away and got 2, one for myself and one for my wife.
From a customer’s standpoint, I feel that Fitbit did mess up with the pre-orderes process. The whole point of pre-orders is to be one of the first to get the product, not to find out that retailers closest to you are already selling the product and your pre-order directly from the manufacturer is nowhere close to even be shipped! What gives Fitbit?
As of writing this article, Fitbit’s website still have the device posted as coming out soon! Yet most of the BestBuy stores have them in stock already!
I have both devices charging as I am writing this post, I will post a review in few days after I start using mine.
Update: Flex review
