Silence fitbitd console messages

I found Fitbitd (the Fitbit running daemon) sending tons of strings like this to console:

Aug/11/2011 14:57:32 	com.fitbit.fitbitd[351]	Thu Aug 11 14:57:32 mycomputer.local MacUserInterface[351] : [9A] 0x00, 0x3b, 0x61, 0x0e, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00

Aug/11/2011 14:57:32 	com.fitbit.fitbitd[351]	Thu Aug 11 14:57:32 mycomputer.local MacUserInterface[351] : Received logical packet.

So, I silenced these by altering the top of /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.fitbit.fitbitd.plist
Note: the -e switch I obtained from:

fitbitd --help

from:

<key>Program</key>
<string>/usr/local/bin/fitbitd</string>

to:

<key>ProgramArguments</key>
   <array>
      <string>/usr/local/bin/fitbitd</string>
      <string>-e</string>
   </array>
