    The Charge 2 is comfortable, reliable, long lasting and a great motivator to work out. I wear mine 24/7 and it feels very natural, it's like I'm not wearing anything. The included strap is smooth to the skin so as the buckle and main device. Although the heart rate sensors looks uncomfortable since they are a bulging at he back of the device (see picture), it's not a problem at all. The "quick view" in which you lift your face towards your face like you would on a normal watch to see time, is convenient. This feature alos works while charging to see the charging status. No need to press the side button. The pedometer is accurate enough for me, so as the calorie burned feature based on heart rate. The accuracy of its heart rate is comparable to my chest strap HRM. You will need to calibrate the stride length to accurately measure outdoor distance. I love the sleep tracking capability and seem pretty accurate and useful. It tells you many time you were awake and restless. It tracks your heart rate 24/7. The Fitbit App is great and very informative. There's plenty of useful metrics presented there. This is were you look view the data recorded by your device, since the device only displays very limited recorded data. I track exercises in my charge 2 six times a week, about an hour or more every exercise and the battery holds up to 7 days. Recharging is as fast as an hour? Not sure. Since I bought my charge 2, my workout frequency and steps per day increased. It's funny how you "want" to move if you have something that will record it. It almost feels like the activities are not wasted and forgotten. You can work better on improving yourself since you have the data for comparison. For example, my sleep has greatly improved since I bought an air purifier, my sleep stats went from 12 times awake, 26 times restless to 0 times awake and 6 times restless. I have no other way to learn about this but the charge's sleep tracking. The device also have reminders to do more steps and some fancy congratulatory visuals when you reached your goals. You also unlock some achievements and stack up points and compare them to your friends. Overall, I love my Fitbit Charge 2. It fits all my needs and exceeded my expectations.

    This is my 3rd activity tracker. The other two were a different brand and had bands that broke within a few months and no way to replace them. My husband had the same brand and 2 of his broke too, so we decided to look at the Fitbit. The price was higher than our previous trackers, but "you get what you pay for" and this tracker should more than pay for itself if I were to continue to have to buy new trackers in the other brand because of broken bands. But there's more: First of all, I like being able to use it as a watch as well as a tracker and being able to see my progress on the screen without having to open the app. Also, I like that I can customize what shows on my activity tracker's screen as well as customize the order of the items that I include. Also, since the band is replaceable, I can buy a new one if this one wears out. Name brand bands are available or you can find compatible bands in different styles and colors if you look on the Internet. The tracker is nice looking too. It looks more like a watch than my previous trackers and it is thinner (in height) on my wrist. Some of the other features that I like are the heart rate monitor which lets you know if you are reaching your desired heart rate while exercising. Also, I like that the tracker knows when I've climbed a set of stairs. I tested this feature and it was very accurate. I also like the reminders that softly vibrate on your wrist. They have gotten me up and walking on several occasions. They can be customized (or turned off). You can set the beginning and end time (5 to 14 consecutive hours.) It is only set to remind you to walk 250 steps every hour during the time range that you set, but once I get a reminder, I walk more than 250 steps. The only con would be having to recharge it more often than the other brand, but Fitbit has come up with a tip for that. Whenever you take a bath or shower, plug it in to charge it up a little. Even if you're only in the shower a few minutes, it will decrease how often you need to charge your Fitbit completely. Great idea! Since one complete charge lasts for 5 days and takes 1 to 2 hours to completely charge a drained Fitbit, this means you would need to charge it for 12 to 24 minutes every day . However, they don't recommend letting your Fitbit drain completely, so I charge mine during my shower and whenever it gets down to about 20 to 25 percent.

    I have been using this product (upgrade from the Fitbit One) for one month. Minor "complaints" so far, are the band fit (one notch is often too tight, the one to the other side of it is too loose), often not reacting to the finger tap to activate the screen, and sometimes losing the heart rate both during exercise and while resting. These are very, very minor complaints, and may just take some time to learn how to manage the device better. The battery life is dependent on the extra features that you use. Whether your have the heart rate auto, off or always on; notifications; Quick View, etc. I can usually go 3-4 days at a time before needing a charge. If the battery gets too low, it will not track manual exercise. And of course will shut off when completely drained. I like the reminders to move. I try to take advantage of as many of those reminders as I can. I love that you can set the time frame on that feature. The customization options are very nice. The most recent upgrade added a few new features that I have been enjoying as well (such as being able to pause a workout, seeing battery life percentage). I like the "Quick View" option that allows you to lift your arm to activate the screen and that you can turn it off (Tip: Turn the "Quick View" off when you go to bed - the device is quite bright during the night). I didn't really need them, but enjoy the notification feature (texts, phone calls, calendar evemts). I do use the text notification feature while at work. I have not used the others as of yet. You can activate/de-activate any of these three as well both from the app and the device. (Tip: be sure all notifications are off before you go to bed - unless you have a Do Not Disturb on your phone, you will continue to get any notifications you have on, as you receive them). I have not yet tried the breathing/relaxation feature, or the Cardio Fitness Level (which is only offered on this device), but I plan to at some point. I was excited but a little skeptical when Fitbit began offering products with heart rate tracking technology. But so far it seems to be tracking very well. Every time I do my blood pressure/heart rate at the kiosks at the store, and when I donate blood, my pulse has always been extremely close to the readings from the Fitbit. I am very pleased so far!

    Fitbit Charge 2.....Awesome Features

    Posted
    Sassy1

    Just purchased my Charge2 during the Black Friday sale (had product for 1 week). I must say.... this one has got to be the best on the market! I love the many features, settings, reminders, etc. on this tracker. I can track calories in vs calories burned (can chart food intake daily), track target heart rate/calories burned during morning workouts, track hydration during the day, and track cardio activity/burn during my afternoon treadmill/walking sessions. It also tracks sleep times and patterns, and has "calming" breathing sessions you can set to do during the day (to de-stress). Great motivational tool (due to ability to set daily goals in different categories and reach them), great way to get/stay fit, or a great way to lose those annoying excess pounds. You can see charts for daily progress as well as weekly progress in all categories. Plenty of information and tracking ability within the software app, and also lots of tools, settings, and additional info within your online Fitbit account to help you achieve and maintain fitness goals and share/interact with others if you choose. My Battery charge has lasted 5 days just as described. Recharging only takes 1 1/2-2 hours. Has GPS connect (when phone with you...not an issue for me as I carry my iPhone everywhere I go) to track routes, distance, pace/speed of walking/jogging/biking activities. This product is splashproof but not waterproof (not an issue for most). Very pleased with purchase, and very pleased with the ease and convenience of set up and use. Excited to incorporate this into my daily routine to help me stay motivated, goal achieving, and reach and maintain overall fitness/ cardio/ /weight loss success (at 58, all of this is important to me for improving, maintaining, and hopefully keeping my good health I've been blessed with....and yes, I'd like to lose the 10 extra pounds I've gained with age)! I would definately suggest to anyone in the market for a tracker to research this product .....there's no doubt in my mind after doing so you will definately be purchasing one for yourself!!

    Great Entry Level Watch for Small Wrists

    I originally purchased the Polar A360 for my wife, however after trying it a couple times she didn't like it because it was too big for her wrist (she has very small wrists) and according to her it wasn't as user friendly. After talking to a coworker about the Fitbit Charge 2, my wife and I went to Best Buy one evening after dinner and purchased this for her. She likes it because it's small, very easy to use - the menus are very intuitive and since she already had the Fitbit app on her iPhone 6s for the Fitbit One, everything synced up to My Fitness Pal app as well. She uses it for walking and other sweaty workouts, but she hasn't taken it in the pool or the shower. In case something happens to it, we purchased the Geek Squad protection plan to be on the safe side. So far it's holding up and it still looks like new after a lot of good use - she uses just a damp towel to clean it up on on occasion but nothing more. Another plus about this watch is the charger - it's straightforward because it clips on to the watch, and there's no guessing whether it's on correctly because there's a hole on one side of the clip where the watch side mode button sticks through. For an everyday activity watch and workouts, this is a great watch. If you're looking for more options like GPS tracking without taking your phone along, or more workout options, you may want to consider a different watch (I have the Garmin Vivoactive HR and it's certainly one I recommend if you need more options). For my wife, the Fitbit Charge 2 is perfect for strenuous walks, walking the dog, high intensity aerobic exercises or just casual wear when she's not in the mood to wear her Apple Watch. Overall a good buy.

    Worth it, but problematic

    This is my 2nd Fitbit (I owned the 1st generation Charge). I had to return my first Charge 2 because the tracker refused to pair with any device I owned (Android phone, iPad, Windows 7 laptop, Windows 10 desktop). It was clearly defective, as the second tracker I received in an exchange paired immediately. I replaced my 1st gen Charge because soon after the 1-year warranty period had passed, it began failing (battery life dropping, syncing failures, refusal to change time zone after travel). It was also falling apart (screen was seriously chipped and the band was falling apart--a bit of Googling revealed this to be a common problem). A good friend of mine recently bought a Charge 2, and after a couple weeks of light wear, his screen was showing scratches and dings. So, the build quality is still shoddy (it's quite surprising that they don't use gorilla glass for the screen). In terms of functionality, it's marginally better than the 1st generation Charge. I do enjoy it's ability to make use of my mobile's GPS for runs--and that's about it. I personally find the meditation/breathing feature to be useless (I do meditate, but I don't need my Fitbit for that). So, why did I purchase it? Aside from the stated problems, I find the tracking functionality useful--so in the end, the positives outweigh the negatives by just a bit. And I was purchasing it to replace the shoddily built Charge 1. I've purchased a screen protector and ruggadized band for the Charge 2, and so far that has worked really well (I shouldn't have to do that, since I do not treat my tracker roughly, but it is what it is). When the Charge 2 expires, I will seriously consider trackers from other companies.

    I purchased this a few days ago and have been using it ever since. I have to say, I am not entirely thrilled with the device and am considering exchanging it for something else. I used to have the Garmin Vivofit and loved it. It was similar to the Alta as it was slim and showed all of your stats, time, phone alerts etc... across the band. However, after about 6 months the light on it started dimming and eventually disappeared, which was a shame because everything else about the watch was pretty perfect. I recently joined a new gym and thought I should get back into my fit lifestyle so I decided to get a Fitbit. I've been using this for the past few days and am a bit disappointed in a few things. First, I don't feel that the exercise tracking is all that accurate. It is a bummer that there aren't more activity functions to choose from. I love to go to Spin class and was surprised that it was not an option. So after my class, I was shocked to see that after biking 11 miles for 40 minutes, the stats said I'd only biked half a mile for a total of 30 minutes. What the heck? However, it did calculate my calories burned correctly. Just doesn't make sense. My other gripe is that it's pretty bulky and honestly not very comfortable. I almost feel like I have a bruise underneath wear it sits because it's just large and ill-formed. Lastly, I've had this on for just under two days and saw on the app today that the battery is below halfway charged, which leads me to believe that it won't stay charged for 5 days since I've really barely used it. I may try the Alta or just go back to the Vivofit and see if perhaps the one I got was flawed. Goodluck if you buy this!

    Good, but not perfect

    Posted

    This is my first fitness tracker, and after looking at many different ones available, I decided to go with this one. After having this for about 10 days, I'd say it is good but not perfect. The battery life is long, only takes an hour or 2 to charge, and lasts 5-6 days. It is comfortable to wear and easy to use. Some people complain that it doesn't sync with the Fitbit app, and although I initially had the same problem, I just followed the online trouble-shooting guide and it synced fine after that. Another thing people complain about is the vibrating alarm not being strong enough to wake you up, but I think that is based on the individual. If you are a heavy sleeper, I can see where it won't wake you up, but being the light sleeper that I am, it worked fine for me. The accuracy of this tracker however, is the down-side. Although the step counter is accurate during long walks or jogs, it over-counts any small movements around the house/office or even when sitting still. I find a 10 step walk into the kitchen will count 40 steps, and sitting still typing at the computer will continuously count steps, so I often have to take it off so as not to be fooled with a large number of steps for the day. The sleep tracking is also inaccurate. On the normal setting, it will say I've slept very soundly through the whole night despite being awake multiple times, but the sensitive setting will show I was awake almost all night even with plenty of sleep. There needs to be a setting in between those. If you don't mind some inaccuracies with steps and sleep, this is a good tracker for the price and I would overall recommend unless you are willing to pay more for a better tracker.
