It worked well for the first year or so. But now that it is two years old I find that it doesn't properly track steps, stairs or sleep. For example, I slept well over 7bhours last night but it tells me I slept for 2 and a half. I have stairs in my apartment and I have to climb them numerous times a day to let my dog in and out but it tells me I havent climbed any stairs in days. Steps, apparently I walked 52 before I even got out of bed.
Worth every penny! Love keeping track of my activity and heart rate :) also love the fact that I'm wearing a watch again! The band on this Fitbit is much better as its significantly more secure with its clip in strap rather than the one on my previous Fitbit Charge which fell off of my wrist numerous times (not secure at all). Keeps a fairly accurate count of my steps and calories burnt (also think the HR tracker helps with this). Loving this model much more than the previous one, although the original Charge led me to become a huge fan of this brand. The linked App is also wonderful! Love comparing and challenging friends as well as checking out my detailed statistics. I believe everybody should have one! We would have a healthier population as a result :)
I got this watch at the end of January as a motivation for my fitness journey. And I absolutely love it! I always have it on my wrist. I wear it day and night. I find sometimes that the steps are off as it's on my hand, but it's pretty reliable in terms of heart rate and calories burned. I use it everyday at the gym and I couldn't go without it ! The only down side, is that it dosn't go under water.
I love my FitBit Charge HR! I wanted this one because I really wanted a heart rate monitor. I like that it tracks all my steps, active time and sleep! My only complaint is that sometimes it has a hard time tracking high intensity cardio workouts and I have been disappointed that it hasn't captured all my work because the heart rate monitor isn't necessarily built for that!
Love my Fitbit. Very motivational. Love the app that goes with the Fitbit. Very user friendly and easy to track my goals. I recommend fitbits to anyone needing a little extra push to get on the fitness trail again!
For a long time I didn't think a fitness tracker was for me. I'm already very active, and I don't need a fancy watch to encourage me to be. But there are so many more benefits to one than that. I started getting interested in Fitbits when I read that they fairly accurately calculate calories that are burned in a day. As a thorough calorie counter, this was a huge draw for me, as it's otherwise difficult to determine the calories burned in a given workout, especially for something like a boot camp class that's constantly changing.
I got my Charge HR for Christmas and I LOVE IT. I have lost weight using the calories that it calculates, and can attest to the accuracy of the calories burned function. The app is super user friendly, and it's easy to view and analyze the data. And it really DOES encourage me to be more active. Even if I've worked out one day, if I haven't gotten my steps in yet I will go for a walk or do a walk-at-home YouTube video to complete my 10,000 steps. The community is great too; so many people use Fitbits and the challenges are a fun way to connect with friends while getting off your butt.
All in all, this has been a great tool for me in my fitness and weight loss goals. For others, it may just be a way to encourage more activity, which is always a good thing, but if you're not also tracking what you eat, it likely isn't going to help you lose weight.
I absolutely love my fitbit. At first, I wasn't sure if I would get much use out of it but having the daily goals really motivates me to reach all of them! It's super simple to use and I feel like anyone can use it from a full on athlete to your everyday mom.
I love the new fitbit I got but it is too expensive for its price and I have noticed that it counts steps even when I am sitting or working. Then I realized that even with the slightest hand movement, the step count could be inaccurate.
I debated on upgrading to this version of the Fitbit for over a year. I originally had the Flex but barely ever wore it. I've had this one now since December and other than charging or to shower, this thing hasn't come off! I love the screen and the ability to track my heart rate throughout the day. It definitely helps keep me motivated & on track!
I bought my fitbit with the intention that it would help me get more activity throughout the day, and it definitely has! It shows everything you need to see to stay on track right on the tracker, as well as more things on the app. I like that they're constantly adding new things to the app to make it easier to reach your fitness goals, such as having the reminders to move if you've been sitting for a while. Being able to challenge people on your friends list is a fun way to have some friendly competition as well. There's different badges you can collect for accomplishing milestones, like reaching 15,000 steps in a day, 25 flights of stairs, or beating your daily personal best. I get about 5-7 days out of the battery, which I think is pretty good for wearing it 24 hours a day. Price is comparable to other fitness trackers on the market.
Fitbit also has amazing customer service. The two times I've reached out to them for something they were quick to respond and very thorough.
