I'm on the Ingles at the moment , staying in Nada tonight but I've left my Fitbit One charger at home. I'm told you can only buy them online and it would take too long. So I know it's a long shot but I wondered if anyone also walking the Ingles now has one I could just use for a couple of hours please.
Here's hoping.

I lost my fitbit charger within the first week last year. There was another pilgrim with the same model who stayed at the same albergue as me a couple of times, and he charged my fitbit for me. Eventually we got out of sync, and I just gave up on it.
You can also track your activity using your phone. Many phones have an app pre-installed to do this, or you can download one.

My Fitbit stopped working after a year and a half. I have been using the "Health" app on my iPhone. It is pretty reliable for recording walking. I think because it uses GPS, there is no way to calibrate it.

I never thought of that, now I've download an app so it doesn't matter nearly so much. Funny how my mind goes blank when things go wrong.

If your fitbit does not record the trip, you did not walk it. You will to go back and start again with a proper recording fitbit.... Yes, I am kidding, it does frustrate me too when it happens to me. I start my Camino next Monday and hope to record my steps on fitbit and Mapmyfitness (I like to have proof I am doing something to stay healthy but drives my wife crazy). I would happily share my charger with a fellow fitbit mate.

I do have to say that it's annoying that Fitbits don't use standard micro USB charging cables. :(It seems that each model has its own unique cable.

And this is why I love my Garmin Vivofit 3, it does not require charging. Looking forward to seeing my step counts!

So true in my case. I do not take one step without my Fitbit One. Sorry I am not able to help out with sharing of the charger. We are doing the CF and starting on May 8. While other apps will capture steps my Fitbit has been my partner for the last 5 years. I have the "badges" to prove it. My husband thinks I am nuts!

I still can’t comprehend the need for a Fitbit, especially when on the Camino. I know I’m pretty old (almost 80) but my body can usually tell me how far I have walked - I don’t need that information in steps. I know if I sleep well and I know what and when I need to eat. My thoughts when walking many miles are to be aware of the amazing world we live in and how very lucky I am to appreciate it. It is a time to leave some of the incredible technology available to us at home.
Just my 10 cents worth.

I'm 74 and addicted to it.
