    It's great for what it does

    Accurately tracks my steps (seems to me its main function is as a pedometer). It alerts me when I've been sitting still for too long... usually 10 minutes before the top of each hour. Tracks my active minutes. For me this is walking or cycling, but it also tracks swimming (waterproof), aerobic exercise, etc. Through the app you can also monitor caloric and water intake, set exercise goals and weight loss goals. I really like the alerting functions that I have tied to my phone. I get an alert whenever I receive a text or phone call. My phone is often on silent mode, so this unexpected benefit was huge to me. It also tracks your sleep (time sleeping, restless and awake). I've found it to be quite accurate though I don't have sleep issues and so really don't use it. Package came with both the large and small adjustable wristbands, so this should fit just about any one. If I had complaints these would be minor. The power charge only seems to last about 2-1/2 days. This isn't an issue for me. Since I don't sleep with it I charge it each night with my phone. Also, I previously had a Fitbit Zip which required a battery. Charging is much better than buying a battery. That said the charge to full seems relatively short (2 or 3 hours). But, I can see if you are someone who would wear the tracker all the time (including sleeping) that this may be a hassle for you. Also, there is no heartbeat monitor or stairs (incline) counter/monitor. I knew this when buying and was not looking for either. If you are then this item is not for you. Otherwise, I think it's great for what it is and recommend it to someone wanting a reliable pedometer with some extra features.

    I just received this yesterday, in lavender. I have had the one (clip) fitbit for 3 years and finally lost it over the weekend. I love how thin and simple the band is, going from a hidden clip for 3 years I wasn't sure I wanted a bulky piece of rubber around my wrist but its awesome. For those who don't need to see on a screen their progress, this works great. I have my phone all the time anyway so there was no reason I wanted a screen that had to be tapped or pushed to see my steps- just look at your phone. I wear it next to my watch so no need to see the time either. I love that its waterproof as well! Very light weight, very pretty color. and you can pop out the actual tracker and put it in your pocket if need be. It vibrates twice hourly to keep you moving, and vibrates for calls/texts. Very simple alternative if you don't want the bells and whistles of other Fitbits.

    I did my research and debated on which Fitbit was right for me, and I'm so glad I picked this one! I've had it for almost a week and it's been so beneficial already. The step tracker and calorie counter have been very helpful, but the sleep tracker is one of my favorite features. It has given me more insight as to why I always wake up so tired. Another favorite feature is the vibration that it gives you if you haven't walked enough steps within the past hour. It's kind of a gentle way of telling you to stop being lazy and I love that! Also, it was easy to setup and the app that goes along with it is very user friendly and helpful. I also love that you can purchase extra bands to change up the colors. A friend of mine was waiting to hear my feedback before they purchased one and they're now going to get their own. I'm also looking at buying the scale that goes along with the Fitbit to keep track of my weight and body fat. Great product and I would highly recommend!

    Finally waterproofed! A lil short on battery.

    Does what it says it'll do, tracks your steps, monitors your sleep, and finally they're waterproof so it can also track swimming laps. I like how it has notifications for phone messages and movement reminders that you can opt in and out of. It's light, comfortable and very easy to wear/use solid little fitness friend. Down side is with certain settings it has a very short battery life, upside is if you set it right the charge last is about 4 days with continued wear. Charging isn't that slow either but it does take around an hour for a full recharge (I tend to charge it at night as tracking my sleep is a secondary use on it for me)

    I've stayed away from Fitbit (and other fitness trackers) because they were not waterproof. I read about the Flex 2 Fitbit being released and it can be worn while swimming and showering. I wanted one that I would only have to take off to charge once a week or so and this one fits the bill. Good price, very comfortable. The setup with the Fitbit App from the Windows store for Windows 10 was very easy, and my computer bluetooth saw the unit right away. Please note that there are both a small and large band included, but only one of them has the metal clasp for closing the band. If the band you want to use does not have the clasp on it, you have to remove the clasp from the other band and put it on the one you want to use. Very pleased so far. I'm figuring the band will last a year or two but I can always replace the band when needed.

    Good Minimalist Fitbit

    I wasn't sure which type of fitness band I wanted and opted for the fitbit flex 2 becuase it was the smallest and least bulky of the options. I have really small wrists and don't like to be constantly interrupted with notifcations and information overload. At first I wished I'd gotten a model that could measure my heart rate too, and I'm not quite sure how much it actually understands that I am rowing on the water when I'm 'exercising,' but I decided that I don't mind. I like that it is small, it nudges me to move, it lets me know when I'm getting a text message or call (I NEVER have my phone volume on, so this is very helpful), and I am very motivated to move more and try to get steps in. It's just enough bang to help me think more about not being sedentary which I like. If here was a fit bit the same size that also measured heart rate, I would probably upgrade to that, but I don't like anything bulkier.

    My first Fitbit device

    This was my first Fitbit device, and I am very pleased with its performance. I had debated getting the Flex 2 or the Alta, but chose the Flex 2 for its slim profile, waterproof design, and lower price point. I have yet to incur water damage, and the five-light design is very minimalist yet informative. One of the main reasons for purchasing a Fitbit was for the silent alarms, as my alarm would annoy both my roommate and me in the mornings. Although I at first set backup alarms on my phone, I turned them off as I realized the Flex 2 had very strong vibrations that have never failed to wake me up in nearly a month's use. A common complaint is the press-on design of the band, and at first, I was disappointed at how difficult it was to put this on. However, after use, it became much more comfortable to put it on, but not to the point where I felt it was in danger of falling off by itself.

    Worth the upgrade from the original Flex

    I saw the sleeker design of the FitBit Flex 2 and decided to upgrade. I had owned the original Flex for several years and the charge on that device was starting to fade more rapidly throughout the day. The Flex 2 is an improvement over the original. For those of you who don't want a big bulky bio-metric device or, like me, have a nice watch which I also wear on the same wrist, this is a thin, stylish band that almost looks like an accessory bracelet. Things I like about Flex 2 over Flex 1: - Better look and fit, with rounded edges - Better battery charge from what I can tell so far - No need for the laptop dongle - The clasp is MUCH BETTER - I dropped my old Flex at least three times and almost lost it because the clasp was too easily dislodged.

    I have been looking at this for a while. Missed the January sale and waited. When they went on sale in may I jumped at it figuring I had the Best Buy 15 day warranty to try it out. I was tracking steps with my phone but it wasn't accurate because I don't always carry my phone. I choose this one because I already had a garmon forerunner for running and didn't need another watch ( maybe when that dies I"ll upgrade) I really like that I can swim in this one and track laps ( I haven't tried this yet) once it gets warm enough for me to swim. I enjoy using it now to track steps/activity, food, and especially sleep! I didn't realize how many times I was "restless" through the night. I am considering getting the metal bracelet in the future with my rewards certificates:) I obviously kept it past my 15 days and enjoy using it daily.

    Bought as a replacement for my Fitbit Zip (had the Zip 2 years and it eventually quit). Love this Flex 2. Use it for step, distance and calorie counting. Set the alerts to wake me in the morning (I also use the sleep monitor), but also set the alerts to ping me when I receive texts or phone calls. Combined with the Fitbit app, you can also use it to monitor exercise, water intake and calories. It took a few days to get used to the wristband (stopped wearing a watch many years ago), but it's light, comfortable and easy to clean. Seems you can also buy more fashionable styles if this one does not suit you. Box contained two bands (large and small). Unit is rechargeable which I like better than the battery-operated Zip. Very satisfied overall.

    Makes you aware of exercise & sleep habits

    I love this Fitbit. It makes me realize how much more I need to walk. Yes sometimes it counts stuff it shouldn't and sometimes it doesn't count stuff. The sleep is not always accurate. But I can look at it and figure it out still. Unbelievable how many times I wake up or am restless. But for the price it's nice and I wanted one that could get wet. Charges quickly and usually lasts 3-4 days. I like that it will vibrate to tell me I've been sitting too long and that it lights and vibrates to tell me my phone is ringing or other things. It's perfect for me I don't want people seeing my steps on my wrist. Also, I wasn't sure if I would use it so I didn't want to spend a lot.

    I bought this for my sister, who is NOT an athlete but she should be. She loves to swim laps. She Is a dog walker. I thought she would love it for tracking swim laps since this is the first waterproof Fit Bit product. She never considered buying one for herself. Turns out, she LOVES it and she's hooked on it. She loves the sleep tracking feature, as well as the swim feature. For the first time, she is keeping up with the number of steps she takes each day. She is motivated to make improvements in her physical conditioning, thanks to the Fit Bit. I got the magenta (purple) colored unit and she loves that, too. Home run!

    I wanted a Fitbit and considered several different models. I decided to go with the flex 2 for a few reasons. One, I’m always on a baseball field and rain happens, so gave me piece of mind that it is water resistant. Second, I read that scratching was an issue with other models and I know how rough I can be, so the flex 2 takes away that scare. And lastly, all the information I need from the flex 2 is readily available on my smartphone. Been wearing it for a few weeks now and am very, very happy with it. The battery doesn’t last 5 days like they say it does, but I’ve been getting 3 days per full charge roughly which is still good enough.

    I bought this device for my wife and she loves it, now she can keep track of all her activities such as; calories burnt, how many steps a day she does and how much sleep she is getting. She gets a digital track of her activities through flex 2. She loves this device and I do too since she can now track everything she does with this device by simply downloading the app on to her phone or computer and by the end of the day she knows what she has done or what she needs to do to keep in track.

    This is my first Fitbit and I love it. It is waterproof, the band it came with is comfortable, and the app lets you customize your goals and sends you reminders and encouraging messages to help you reach your goals. The silent alarm feature is great for those mornings when your partner is sleeping in and you don't want to wake them. It has helped me to lead a more active life style (I get 5 miles in every day now), and I've lost weight. I've spent more money on fitness classes that didn't work for me, and I wish I had bought this years ago.

    When the fitness trackers first came out I decided I really wasn't interested in them. However, I decided I needed to get moving and I thought it would help motivate me. I opted for the Fit-bit Flex 2 as it was on sale. I bought the warranty with it as well. So far it has motivated me to get moving, I downloaded a free walking app which works well with the Flex 2. I was thinking it was water proof as you can swim with it, but I haven't done that. I make sure I dry it off really good after I shower though. For the money, it is a fairly decent purchase. I have used it a little over a month.

    some people like to show off their tech, others just want to have something that works without telling everyone "look at me". I like tech to do what it needs to and nothing more, I don't want a watch that can do everything a tech tracker can do, plus a phone, ipod, email and blah blah blah blah because that's like having a single swiss army knife that is every hand tool you could ever need, it becomes unusable. This activity tracker does what it needs without interfering with your life and that's what i like most about it.

    I purchased this for my husband because he was tracking his steps on his phone (which wasn't very convenient). I knew he wouldn't want a larger Fitbit because he wears watches and does a lot of work around the house. He loves this little device. It does a great job of tracking what he needs it to track, is small and sleek, and stays charged for about a week. I was impressed to find that this came with 2 different sized wristbands; large and small. I thought that was very convenient in case I ever want to use it or his steps pay off and he shrinks a size.

    I purchased the Fitbit Flex 2 to replace my original Fitbit Flex I've owned for four years. The Flex 2 had the features I wanted in being waterproof and able to give notifications for texts and phone calls. The band is nicer looking than the original Flex and the clasp seems to be more secure. It has the features of an alarm, sleep tracking (which is spot on in my case), and of course the step counter. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fitness tracker who doesn't want to spend a lot of money on one. This does everything I need it to do!

    The Fitbit flex 2 is a great activity tracker as well as a sleep tracker. The fit bit program available on the IOS and Android phone platform allow you to be super competitive with friends and other individuals using the fit bit trackers. The battery life for me would be a few days. It states up to 5 days in the instructions. The fit bit will vibrate for incoming text notifications as well as incoming calls. The tracker is water proof and the band seems to be constructed of durable materials. Over all I would recommend the fit bit flex 2.
