@barbarita You don't need a smartphone or computer for the Fitbit One. I love it. I got mine on Amazon for about $80. There's a small screen and it tells you your steps, stairs climbed, miles walked, etc. It comes with a USB charger and a tiny bluetooth sync if you want to be able to sync it to your computer.
I spotted your post an wondered what you meant by stand-alone. I'm now on my 3rd generation of fitbits having had a Zip, a One and now a Charge HR. They all display information on their LED displays and they can be synched to both PC's and Smartphones, but don't have to be.
I'm not sure what you are looking for in a tracker, but would be happy to chat about my 2 years as a fitbit user, if I can be of any help.
*Edit* and what Tracieknits just said
The stairs climbed is is full-flights only, unfortunately. So you can estimate that each flight is about 8 feet or so of elevation.
It resets itself at midnight each night. Since mine is synced to my smartphone and my computer, I'm not sure what the default time zone setting is.
https://help.fitbit.com/?p=one, which might answer some questions. I think it has a stopwatch feature ( though I have never used it) which you could use to mark the start and end of a run or walk, But the PC/Mac web dashboard would show those details.
Use the timer on your Fitbit One to track a specific activity in greater detail. For example, if you put your tracker in exercise mode and go for a walk or run, when you sync your tracker after your exercise you’ll see a new entry on your fitbit.com activity log. The entry provides a summary of the activity's stats as well as a minute-by-minute graph.
To track an exercise:
Hold down the button until you see the timer start. While your tracker is recording an activity, its icons will blink continuously and you will see a stopwatch for the duration of the activity.
When you're done with your workout, hold down the button until you see the timer stop.
Sync your tracker.
Log into your fitbit.com dashboard and go to Log > Activities to see the activity. Note that you can't view activity details from the One in the Fitbit apps.
Thanks for letting us all know !!
I love my Charge HR, it does everything I want it to do , without much intervention from me.
