I love Fitbits. I've had Fitbits since the first day's retail release of the very first one. The problem is that I lose them. A lot. Particularly since going to the FitBit One. The wrist clip is too thin for jeans, so I've ended up mostly having it loose in my pocket.

I'm on my 3rd FitBit One now. I've always found the wristband, particularly on the fitbit one, to be very comfortable and the current design seems like it almost can't fall out.

How much performance/tracking in the fitbit do you lose if you just wear it on your wrist all day like a watch?

Right ^ - the fitbit One won't work on properly your wrist.
It's designed to track your torso.

If you want to wear it on your wrist, you should buy the Flex, as it's designed to count from your wrist.
As far as the Fitbit One falling out... I put a small piece of velcro on the back of the fitbit and inside the case.
I've never had an issue with it falling out or off.... and I have no trouble clipping it on my jeans waistband.
That's wear I wear it every day.

We gals tend to wear the One on our bra strap ... but the times I've worn it on my waistband, I haven't had any trouble making it work. Rather than simply putting it IN your pocket, could you not clip it TO your pocket? I do turn the Fitbit so it is facing in, against my body, rather than out (as one time it did somehow slip out of the silicone case). My son wears it clipped to his underwear (again, facing his body rather than facing out).

As others have said, wearing the Fitbit in other locations (wrist/sock) will give inaccurate info. If you have trouble losing it and/or prefer wearing it on your wrist, you may just want to switch to the Flex.
