    Kind of gets old.

    I love my Fitbit, but after a couple months I got sick of the chunky look of it. HR monitoring is decently accurate. I compare it to my chest HR monitor. However, it ALWAYS cuts out during my workouts and stops reading my HR for several minutes. First Charge HR I owned lasted 10 months before it wouldn't charge anymore. They sent me a free replacement. I don't even think you can buy this version anymore. But I do like how you can start and stop a workout by holding down the button - a feature Charge HR2 does not have. If you want it to count step get the Alta! If you want it for heart rate monitoring, invest in something a little more reliable.

    Not a bad tracker for the average person

    I really like being able to track my progress with the Fitbit and the app. What I don’t like is the fact that these are not function able in the water, on the bike plus the battery life is weak (3days). I feel that I am always having to charge my watch and that really affects tracking my progress. When the battery dies it does not give me a lot of notice or have option to check my battery level on the watch itself until the battery is low and then you are lucky to have 2-3 hrs to get it onto charge or lose all your data.
    The other negative is that the strap is not the prettiest and it would be lovely if there where better options without the price being jacked up. Apart from that I do like it, the app is easy and fun to use.
    I would love to try the new FitBit with the swimming functions, but it doesn’t fit the single mom budget if it doesn’t work the way I need it to.

    Love my Fitbit

    I got my Fitbit a few years back, I love it to track my steps throughout the day as well as my calorie burn. This is a replacement as the band on mine bubbled and lifted. The warranty is fantastic and I got a brand new one. The newer models look better and when mine dies I’ll probably replace it.

    Keeps me on track!

    I’ve had my Fitbit for about a year now and I’m really enjoying it. The sleep tracking is so helpful and I like how much information it collects. I find the touchscreen interface to be a bit bothersome at times, but overall, it’s a good product.

    In love with my Fitbit....even over the Apple Watch

    So...I got a free Apple Watch...it was part of a promo, which I was so excited about as I had the Fitbit Alta for a year and fell in love. When I got the Apple Watch, I gave my Alta to hubby and he loved it just the same. Only thing is...I hated my watch. I didn’t understand it (not user friendly) and it didn’t do near as much that I wanted as my Fitbit. So...I swapped it for the Charge HR and have zero regrets. It tracks sleep...my heart rate....even stairs....and the Fitbit community is so friendly and positive. A nice change of taste in an angry world. Well worth the high price.

    Good tracker, better than the regular charge

    I purchased this tracker after my first two charges wrecked. So far it has lasted longer than those. The rubber casing has lifted, but has not opened like the older ones. I like how the band is interchangeable for in case this one opens up, but I have not had the need to get a new band yet. Defiantely a better value than the regular charge!

    Love the brand, might try something new

    I bought my Charge HR Fitbit activity tracker in April 2015.

    Features I love: the step tracker, heartrate monitor, automatic exercise tracker, easy to use start/stop exercise button, easy to read display screen that shows time/steps/calories burned..., the band attaches using a real watch-style clasp. It is a good size, and blends into any look without being self-conscious about wearing it, even to a Christmas party, wedding, etc.

    Things I don't love: it is all one piece, so if one part fails, you have to buy a whole new one (whether it is the sensor, part of the band, etc).
    It is not easy to clean, especially around the sensor that sits against your arm, which can get kind of gross.

    Things I wish it has that other Fitbit options have but this one doesn't:
    reminders to move (250 steps/hr alarms)
    replaceable/changeable bands

    Moins cher qu'un coach, un must à avoir

    Définitivement pour moi, un bon achat. Je le dis sans hésiter. Je me relève d’un cancer du sein et je peux vous dire en tout honnêteté que cela m’a permis de me donner un bon coup de pied où je pense pour me remettre à bouger ; challenge entre amis, objectif d’exercice hebdomadaire, obtention de badges, circuits aventures, défis, etc. Il y a aussi la possibilité d’y associer des applications, par exemple FITSTAR. Vous pouvez suivre votre alimentation en y entrant tout ce que vous mangez afin de balancer votre apport calorique en fonction des dépenses énergétiques. Mais, me direz-vous, pourquoi payer plus cher pour une montre alors que d’autres compagnies offrent semblablement la même chose pour moi cher. Alors je vous réponds : vous l’avez dit : semblablement. Fitbit est complet (sommeille, consommation en eau, suivi de poids, rythme cardiaque, etc.) et autres options de type «Smart» comme reconnaissance automatique d’exercice ou l’afficheur d’appel. De plus, le service à la clientèle est extraordinaire. J’ai eu des problèmes avec ma montre, et le service de remplacement a été exemplaire.

    A great option for a health tracker on a budget. I love that it has a heart rate monitor so I can accurately track my calorie burn for the day! The screen that shows your daily stats and the time is also great!

    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.
