I did not own any other tracker prior to getting this Charge 3 on release day. Out of the box got a firmware update that took about 30 min to complete. Claims to have a battery life of 7 days and it does, charged today with 7% battery remaining. I don't now how it calculates the steps but they are NOT even estimate to accurate, it calculate them even on my commute of 1 hour to work adding up to 2,000 steps when i am only driving. However i have found very useful the way you can track what you eat and compared with burned calories. Sleep tracking have help me to realize the quality and time i have been sleeping allowing me to make adjustments as needed, sleep tracking time seems to be very accurate so far. The apps creates a great integration with your smart phone by getting notifications and even reading a quick email. On day number 4 it became unresponsive and giving erratic readings for everything, a device reset fixed the issue. On day 5 a new update was available and took about 30 min to complete. Overall i am happy with all you can learn of yourself with this tracker. Recommended if you have a busy life and try to keep track of your health as well. The product still new and hope new updates will come to fix the small issues with the steps.
This Charge 3 is the perfect size for wife. The watch tracks all of the activities she wants and looks good on her wrist also!! The watch is durable yet comfortable. The Fitbit is a tad bit expensive, but she feels it is worth it.
I have had this for about 5 months and it does everything i need it to do. Keeps track of my steps, heart rate, and calories burned. The fitbit app is the real winner in getting these products tho. It is so organized and works well. I do have a gripe with the watch tho. After only 5 months the screen has started to glitch. Like it is losing its screen. I will be doing a warranty claim with fitbit here soon. But i would be weary of this fact when choosing this one. Idk if it was jus a bad product or something that happens often.
I really love this Fitbit. It took me a while to get use to the bigger size band but now that I am I enjoy it. I love Fitbit cause I’m not looking for a smart watch but something to help me mind my health in. I read a lot of reviews about saying it was hard to read but I can read if perfectly. Only con is when swiping or flipping my wrist it has an animation to active the screen could be smoother
I bought the Charge 3 the day it came out. I really like the size. Before I had the Alta Hr and I really liked it but the size was just a little to small.
I bought the charge 3 with the normal silicone band. The band is nice but it made my wrist sweat a lot so I purchased the berry sports band and it seems to be keeping my wrist a lot cooler.
This Fitbit is exactly what it says it is, a really nice fitness tracker. I really like it so far!

Fitbit Charge 3 review: Fitbit is getting really good at this (Update: On sale!)
Fitbit knocked it out of the park with the Charge 3. At under $150, you're getting an attractive, accurate, and feature-packed fitness tracker. The display is awesome too, and it's water resistant. What more could you ask for? Well, a few thingsFull Review
Coming in at $150, does the Charge 3 offer enough to justify upgrading from a regular activity band like the Fitbit Flex 2, or should you spend a little more and go for the Versa with its smartwatch bells and whistles? We're here to find out!Full Review
A:AnswerI bought the Fitbit Charge 3 on Monday and going to return it today (Thursday). It is not properly recording my steps but also gives the "steps" when I'm driving or moving my arm. I wanted my steps counted is the main reason I purchased a Fitbit to begin with. Now not sure which one go purchase next.
A:AnswerI did the upgrade and I don’t think it’s worth it. The face selection are not a useful to my older eyes, but the big kicker is, the bands and chargers are not compatible. I had 26 bands and 3 chargers. The 2 is a great device, the 3 brings waterproofing, a better battery (I can’t tell) and easier band connection.
A:AnswerWe don't know about the Charge 3 but it's likely to be similar to the Charge 2 which Fitbit says:
"The buckle and frame on Charge 2 are made of surgical-grade stainless steel. While all stainless steel contains traces of nickel and can cause an allergic reaction in someone with nickel sensitivity, the amount of nickel in all Fitbit products meets the European Union's stringent Nickel Directive."
I have a nickel sensitivity and have to be careful what touches my skin including belt buckles, necklaces and anything with pewter. I wear the Charge 2 nearly 24 hours per day and have no problem. But others have reported sensitivity. Probably worth trying and returning if it doesn't work out. Other customers have mitigated the situation by using sport tape or moleskin. I think the vast majority of people are OK with it.
A:AnswerAfter 3 months the pixels on one have screwed up. 2 lines across the screen. The other one we have does not sync anymore regardless of how many times I have tried, all different methods, resetting etc. So now the time is wrong on one device so there's no point using it, and you cant change the time on the watch itself. The other one just looks crap with all the pixel issues. I regret my purchase and have lost $280.
