Video Review: Fitbit Ultra Wireless Activity / Sleep Tracker

I've posted a video review of the Fitbit Ultra, which both my wife and I use daily to keep track of our fitness activities.   

This is the first video where I've combined video camera footage, a screencast, and a digital whiteboard, all in an effort to hone my skills.  

I made the digital whiteboard using my iMac (Amazon Link), Pixelmator (Mac App Store Link, where it is currently on sale for $14.99, which is a steal!), and the Wacom Bamboo Capture Pen and Touch Tablet (Amazon Link).  I continue to use iShowU HD for my screen captures.  Other video was shot using an iPhone 4 (Amazon Link).  

If you are looking for an excellent Mac alternative to Photoshop, I highly recommend Pixelmator, especially at that price.  If I can get some traction with these videos, I'll look to improve my lighting and get a stand to hold the iPhone, which records in 720p.  I'm thinking about something like this (Amazon link).  

Do you think something like the Fitbit might help you with your fitness goals?  What do you think of my use of the digital whiteboard?  Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
