About a week ago I stretched out the fitbit to where it was unable to fit snug on the pocket of my jeans. Ever since then I had tried to be real careful with it because I just knew that it would fall off. It happened once before, I was with my daughters at soccer practice and I lost it.
Thanks to some kind stranger who turned it into the office at the soccer field I was able to get it back. This time I was not so lucky, I went to wash my hands and must have snagged my Fitbit as it flew off the pocket and dropped into the toilet.
I am just glad the toilet was just plain water at the time as I grabbed it out and took a towel to dry it off real quick. Next i grabbed a zip-lock bag and some rice and threw the Fitbit inside. I left it inside the rice for about 48 hours to let the rice soak up all the moisture inside.
Last night I finally took it out of the rice and tested it real quick to see if it turned on. A successful test, next was to see if it was able to charge. It only took about 30 minutes to fully charge it, and now I am waiting to see if it still last the average of 5 days without a charge or will it be dead in less then a day.
I was just getting back into the groove of using my Fitbit and I really hope that it survived this. Next I need to find a better way to keep it secure while its on my body.
