Fitbit Charge HR black, large

 

I was a little bit wrong about the Fitbit Charge HR.

Continuous heart rate tracking. Slim design. Affordable price. Works with Windows, iPhone and Android phones. Fitbit's massive popularity means you'll be able to join up and compete with friends. Connects with many third-party fitness apps. Automatic...

Design and fit aren't ideal for glancing at heart rate. Not shower or swim-friendly. OLED display turns off after a few seconds, which gets annoying. Heart-rate coaching and goal-setting isn't intuitive.

Fitbit's Charge HR combines heart rate tracking, sleep tracking and fitness into an affordable, slim band with good battery life. It's a hard combination to beat.

Fitbit Charge HR fitness band review

 

It's not as precise as other heart-rate monitors, but Fitbit's Charge HR will still motivate you to move more and charge into workouts harder.

We’ve been Fitbit fans since first trying the Fitbit Flex. For us, the programmable vibration alarms alone make the Charge HR band worth owning. Waking up to the brain-scrambling blast of an audible alarm seems like cruel and unusual punishment after...

Fitbit Charge HR and Surge review: Wristbands for the serious daily tracker

 

Fitbit's two high end devices are now available and both come with heart rate monitoring and basic notification support. Matthew spent a couple weeks with each and prefers one over the other.

Fitbit Charge HR

 

Reasonably priced for an all-day activity tracker with a continuous heart rate monitor, the Fitbit Charge HR looks sleek on the wrist. A slim profile make it truly wearable for people of all sizes. While it's not ideal for serious runners or exercise...

Continuous, optical heart rate monitor built in. Reasonable price. Slim design. Tracks steps, miles, stairs, calories burned, sleep, heart rate, and exercise activities. Excellent app and website. Compatible with practically every OS. Beautiful and...

Water-resistant, but not waterproof. No smartwatch functionality beyond caller ID. No idle alerts. REM, light, and deep sleep not assessed.

Review: Fitbit Charge HR

 

The new Fitbit Charge HR is a new wearable band that can measure your heart rate. And it works pretty well, as long as you...

Stellar battery life: 5 to 7 days per charge. Soft band. Easy to use and sync. Highly accurate step and sleep tracking. Well-designed mobile app with data presented in easy-to-understand graphs

Not waterproof. Heart-rate tracking not accurate for high heart rates. Pulse-tracking LEDs are alarmingly bright at night. Watch clasp grows uncomfortable when worn 24/7. No Apple Health integration, though not a huge knock against the Charge HR since...

Fitbit Charge HR ( plum, large)

 

Was it really the fitness, or was it the idea of turning fitness-based into something fun?

The Fitbit Charge HR adds continuous heart-rate tracking to all of the other features already available in the stepdown Fitbit Charge for just a bit more money. Resting heart-rate readings reasonably accurate.

Design and fit aren't ideal for glancing at heart rate; active exercise causes accuracy drop-offs; not shower or swim-friendly. OLED display turns off after a few seconds, which gets annoying. Heart-rate coaching and goal-setting isn't intuitive.

Fitbit's Charge HR adds heart-rate tracking to an already solid fitness band at a great price, but all the kinks don't feel fully ironed out yet.

Fitbit Charge HR review: Fitbit's heart-centric fitness band falls short of perfection

 

I think back to when fitness wearables first emerged -- devices like the Fitbit -- and wonder, what made them so great? Why did people get so excited?

Fitbit Charge HR Review

 

Recently, we got the chance to review one of its latest models, the Fitbit Charge – a decent offering to say the least, but not quite as impactful than some of its previous efforts. This time around, the Fitbit Charge HR takes everything we already...

Heart rate sensor offers superior workout accuracy ; Automatic sleep tracking ; Display grants us access to data directly on the unit ; Lots of data & statistics with mobile app

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

No doubt, the only thing notably different here is the heart rate sensor tacked onto the Fitbit Charge HR, as its name so happens to imply. With that addition, it receives a higher price point of $149.95, which is a $20 premium over the standard Fitbit...

Fitbit Charge HR Review

 

The Fitbit Charge HR is one of the best heart rate monitor watches on the market. Since it's so customizable, it can help you achieve your fitness goals, no matter your current fitness level. The Charge HR is best for those who want a wide-angle view...

Continuous heart rate tracking makes the Charge HR a powerful tool.

The Charge HR is water resistant only, so it can’t be submerged in water and has a hard time with rain and sweat.

This all-around fitness and heart rate tracker is an over achiever that can help you train smarter with heart rate zone data and a handful of other health metrics.
