The Fitbit Force is a wireless activity monitor you wear on your wrist. It monitors your movements with a triple axis accelerometer and altimeter, syncs wirelessly over Bluetooth low energy (BTLE), and has a high-contrast OLED display. That’s a lot of stuff packed into such a tiny space, so we wanted to open it up and see how it works inside. Watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo, and check out some more detailed photos and part numbers in the Adafruit Learning System Guide.
