Fitbit Charge review

 

FitBit's Charge isn't for everyone, but it's a great fitness band for your average Joe who wants to get fit and look cool doing it.

Sure, FitBit’s Charge isn’t for everyone, but it’s a great fitness band for your average Joe who wants to get fit and look cool doing it. The addition of a screen brings the Charge to another level, and makes it easier to see how active you are at a...

Fitbit Charge

 

The wrist-worn Fitbit Charge is a superb if somewhat basic activity tracker. An slim and sleek design make it truly wearable, and the companion Fitbit website and mobile apps are the best you'll find. But Charge isn't highly sophisticated, and other...

Slim design. Tracks steps, miles, stairs, calories burned, sleep, and exercise or activities. Excellent app and website. Compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, Mac. Beautiful and sharp OLED display. Caller ID feature. Silent alarms.

No heart rate monitoring. Water-resistant, but not waterproof. No smartwatch functionality beyond caller ID. No idle alerts.

Fitbit Charge slate, large

 

But here's the bad news: it costs $130 (£100 in the UK, and AU$150 in Australia). That's hardly a bad price for what you get, but the step-up Fitbit Charge HR , costs only $20 more (AU$30 in Australia) and adds heart-rate tracking and a more...

The Fitbit Charge has a comfortable design and a display for time and step-tracking. It gets call notifications and syncs automatically to a variety of phone platforms.

The forthcoming Charge HR adds heart-rate tracking and a better clasp for just $20 more; the Fitbit app is well designed but feels a little dated compared to the competition.

The Fitbit Charge is a fine replacement for the discontinued Fitbit Force, but you're better off waiting for Fitbit's heart-rate-tracking upgrade.

Fitbit Charge Review

 

After laying dormant for almost a year, Fitbit recently announced its new line of wearable trackers – one of them, the Fitbit Charge, is seeking continue where the Force left off...

Sporty design that fits well for the active lifestyle ; Simple operation ; Automatic sleep tracking ; Display grants us access to data directly on the unit ; Long battery life

It’s still prone to registering phantom steps ; Only handles phone call notifications ; Not entirely water proof

You can say that the wearable space is saturated. From the fitness tracking only models, to the extended features we see in some smartwatches, it’s undoubtedly becoming increasingly difficult to standhead above ground. Fitbit, for a good while there,...

Fitbit Charge review

 

A fitness tracker that picks up where its New Year's recall left off

OLED displays stats ; iOS, Android, WP ; Auto-tracks sleep ; Caller ID works

Similar to last year ; Price unchanged ; Poor sleep accuracy ; Faulty clasp

Fitbit Charge replaces the Fitbit Force that was recalled last New Year's, and it adds features like caller ID and automatic sleep tracking to remain among the best all-around fitness trackers.

Fitbit Charge review

 

Is the Force strong with this one?

Nice price ; Good screen ; Comfortable

Chunky design ; No GPS ; Buy ChargeHR instead

Why the Fitbit Charge is the best new activity tracker

 

The Fitbit Charge is an activity tracker that displays fitness stats right on your wrist. It's the replacement for the Force, which never launched in the UK. It's better than the Force, thanks to a couple of handy additions: automatic sleep tracking...
