Fitbit's new Flex is a iOS and Android-compatible wireless fitness wristband tracker, an Up rival with a favorable interchangeable design. This is a first for Fitbit, so naturally we thought it would only be fair to put it up against the Up in a dog fight. Should you grab a Flex, an Up or Fitbit's One clip-on tracker?
