    My Fitbit with HR Detector was running down battery wise and would not keep a charge. So I did not care for the expense of it nor did I care for the HR component so this is a very welcome and affordable step up for a fitness tracker if you do not need all the bells and whistles. The band is surprisingly comfortable and has a "belt" loop to ensure that you don't easily lose it off of your wrist due to the way it snaps in place. I was very happy to see that there was a large wrist band as a guy, my wrists are pretty big so the large band fit comfortably. The color is pretty awesome too and I like how the display has the color similar to the watch band. Setup was a breeze out of the box. I had to delete my old watch to setup the new one and then there was a firmware update. It also mentioned to update the firmware while being charged so I did what it instructed. I'd say setup was about 10 minutes from the time to add to getting the firmware update. Maybe about a half hour longer or so for a full charge as it was at 50 percent out of the box. The charger.... It is kind of a let down as it has a much shorter cord compared to the one I had where the charger clipped on and the cord was longer. This one.... You need to find a USB extension cord or plug it into your laptop or desktop to charge it. Not really a deal breaker but some people may be turned off by the charging cord. And it's magnetic too, seems like the company is borrowing a charging technique from a popular company named after a fruit that has a watch that charges similar?? I had a shower with it on and it seemed to be just fine, so the water resistance is as advertised, I don't swim often so I don't think I'll be going really deep under the sea , ocean or so forth. Overall, I am pleased with the tracker.. And if you still have one of those Fitbit Zips, the one that had the watch battery , this is a welcome step up from that if you had one, and a welcome step up from the other monitors that did not have the HR... Fitbit did wonderful with this. And at a pretty affordable price. Wish they had options like this a long time ago.. but hey! Technology advances rapidly, right?

    I purchased this fitbit about 2 weeks ago. It comes with 2 bands neither of them seem to fit properly one too tight the other too small around the wrist. i linked this to my health insurance mobile app and the activity count by far is completely off. I accrue steps driving in the car ughh. Sleep app and cycle is on point. Other than calories and steps this is not a good fit bit to counting. I will continue to wear it as it is linked to my insurance to help drop my premium :). But i still use my Garmin watch counter for my work outs for better accuracy.

    I’ve been a Fitbit user for about five years and this is my second Fitbit. My bands on my old Fitbit wore out. When I went to replace them, I decided to upgrade to a new Fitbit because the price of a Fitbit has come down significantly while maintaining or increasing quality and features. I walk, ride my bike, dance, and pool exercise—and now my Fitbit allows me to track it all. And it sends text messages to me. I love it!

    This was an upgrade from my 1st Fitbit Flex 2. I loved it but it started to mess up. Then my wife got me this one and it's been working great. My wife got me this just in time as my watch band was starting to come apart. I like how it notifies me with text messages and even allows me to read them on my inspire. Another plus is it gives me a battery percentage so I can charge it while I sleep. Great product!

    Might be OK for "active" people

    I wanted a very basic smartwatch and bought this. When they couldn't manage to pair it to my phone in store, I took it home and got that done fairly quickly. Then I discovered that contrary to what I'd been led to believe, it was simply a fitness tracker that also showed the time. Fine for anyone only wanting that, but I took it back and exchanged for a "real" smartwatch.

    Wearing my Fitbit inspire for the first time to the gym, and the wristband broke from the Fitbit itself. Whole thing is made of plastic. Cracked where the spring bar goes into the watch to hold band onto the body of watch itself. While trying to figure out what happened, broke the other side as well. Unfor

    I bought the lowest price fitbit. It still does everything I want in a fitbit. I wish the letters were a little bigger when I get a text message. It still tells me when I get a call. it reads text messages I get. it tells me the time, how many steps I get. How many calories. Tells me when I should get moving

    This is the first time that I have had any experience with a fit bit. I’m having so much fun with it as it gives me little quests to walk periodically if I haven’t walked enough. What I like the best is the tracking of my steps and how long I sleep at night. Money well spent

    Perfect for general wellness with the added luxury of using the clip when you want to wear a dress up watch or nothing at all. Plus notifications, timers, hourly motivation and sleep activity!

    Helps keep me on track with exercise while trying to lose some major pounds. I got the diet part down pretty good, but this challenges me to get up every hour at work to make sure I don’t stay sedentary all day.

    Battery is poor. Holds charge for two days at best. Bought clip too, which started to fall apart after three weeks. Had the fitbit one, which was much better, but discontinued. Don't waste your money on the Inspire.

    I purchased this Fitbit to track my daily steps and my heart rate. It seems to track my steps fairly accurately. It doesn’t do a good job when I’m dancing but that’s probably because my arm doesn’t move with each step.

    I love my FitBit Inspire. I wear it daily. I would rate it 5 stars, but the battery doesn't last as long as I was led to believe. It needs charged every two days. Other than that, it meets all my needs.

    Records steps and overall exercise really well. Sleep measurement is spotty, it thinks I have gone to bed when sitting still watching television! Fastening the band is difficult, think that could have a better design.

    I purchased this for my preteen. It is the perfect size and has great battery life. The features are perfect, especially the way it will display text messages, the entire message will scroll. Very nice!

    I’ve enjoyed the Inspire. The watch gives me updates on my steps, exercise, texts, and can be set to alarm at various times. I like the reminder to move a certain number of steps each hour.

    This fitbit records steps when I'm sitting or just moving my arms. It recorded how well I slept when I wasnt even wearing it! I find it very frustrating.

    I wanted to track my steps and I wanted to start with something that is entry level. But I was amazed how well this integrates with the Myfitnesspal apps. Super impressed!

    I purchased this fitbit for my 79 year old mother. I needed something simple, something that she would use and this was the product. This turned out to do just what I wanted it to do.
