    • Best answerNo, but you would need a computer with Internet access (or a way to install fitbit's software). The HR comes with a USB-Bluetooth adapter and a USB connector to directly connect the device. You can use Fitbit's website and/or software on your computer with virtually the same features as the smartphone app.

  • Q: Heart Rate display Does the Fitbit device continuously display your actual heart rate, or does it just display which "zone" you your heart rate is in eg. the Peak Zone?  (11 Answers)

    By Emma 

    • Best answerThe Charge HR will display your heart rate and the zone. Depending on how you set up your display (mine is set to show heart rate last) will determine where you see it in the rotation. The display does not stay on constantly for anything. You have to tap the top to get what you've set to be your face display (mine is clock), or press the side button to scroll through to see each item.

  • Q: Do I have to carry my iphone with me? I could not find any info if I have access to the data while I am exercising or if the notification feature would work if my iPhone is at home.  (10 Answers)

    By Ellie 

    • Best answerYou don't "have" to carry your phone with you. The Fitbit will hold all the data and it will Sync with your phone or Mac/PC later. However if you like to run and you tell the Fitbit App your running it will track your location, speed and distance more accurately using the Phone gps. The Fitbit can only calculate distance based on the number of steps.

    • Best answerYou might have received a used or previously opened unit as they do come with a USB charging cable, & a bluetooth dongle included with two very small booklets with some minimal instructions & contact information. In the bottom portion of the display stand which is part of the packaging, you should find that it holds both booklets & the communication dongle along with a 3 or 4 inch long USB charging cable (which plugs into the rear of the FitBit.

  • Q: Waterproof? My job requires me to wash my hands a million times a day so I'm wondering if this got wet would it ruin it?  (10 Answers)

    • Best answerNo it will not damage it as long as you do not soak it. Also it is advised to dry it afterwards. With the Charge HR, you wear it an inch above your wrist so that will decrease the chance of it getting wet. Also it's NOT recommended that you shower with it.

  • Q: How accurate is the heart rate  (11 Answers)
    This question is for: Fitbit - Charge HR Heart Rate and Activity Tracker + Sleep Wristband (Large) - Black

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerI just wrote my review of the product and only gave it 2 stars because I've found (for me at least) it to be hit/miss on how accurate it is. Some times not matter how high, low, loose, tight I have it, the heart rate feature is WAY off! It happens just enough to make me question how accurate it is every other time of the day. In one of MANY examples I have, I was doing HIIT cardio, was completely out of breathe, sweating, heart is racing and the Fitbit says my HR was at 72bpm...in reality it was probably in the 155-175 range.
