The Fitbit Charge 2's upgrades are incremental, but necessary


The Fitbit Charge 2 brings some much-needed updates to the popular Charge HR. It can now track your distance by tapping your phone's GPS for more accurate pace info and will automatically detect that you're working out after 15 minutes. It also has new...

Bigger display ; Long-lasting battery ; Continuous heart rate tracking ; Automatic workout detection

Unwieldy guided breathing implementation ; Bland design

Fitbit's Charge line was in serious need of an update, and it finally has a decent offering in the Charge 2. The new heart-rate and activity tracker brings important tools such as auto exercise tracking and GPS connectivity, which are good enough that...

Fitbit Charge 2 review: a promising fitness tracker, plagued by bugs


People really love their Fitbits. This is evidenced by sales numbers alone: Fitbit sells more activity trackers than anyone else. Anecdotally, Fitbits abound: walk through any airport, hike any...

Bigger display ; Multisport mode ; Intuitive app ; Week-long battery life

Inaccurate distance tracking ; No pause function ; Not waterproof

Fitbit Charge 2


The Fitbit Charge 2 does everything the Fitbit Charge HR can, along with new idle alerts, automatic activity tracking, guided breathing sessions, interchangeable bands, and the option to connect your phone for GPS.

Large display. Built-in continuous heart rate monitor. Automatically tracks activities, calories, distance, steps, stairs, and sleep. Delivers idle alerts. Relax mode leads deep-breathing exercises. Supports interval training. Interchangeable bands.

Somewhat faint screen. Attracts fingerprints. Not waterproof. No GPS.

Conclusions The Fitbit Charge 2 does everything our previous Editors' Choice, the Fitbit Charge HR can, while adding a larger display, guided breathing exercises, idle alerts, interval training, and interchangeable bands. You don't get built-in GPS...

Fitbit Charge 2 Review: This Redesigned Tracker Shines


It's hard to say that a company is in trouble when it owns 70 percent of the entire wearables market, but many — including myself — were wondering if Fitbit had lost its mojo. There's nothing hugely revolutionary about the Charge 2, but its new...

Interchangeable band ; Accurate heart rate monitor ; Great app ; Good battery life

Not swim resistant ; Hard to see display in sunlight

A refreshed design, larger screen and enhanced activity capabilities make the Fitbit Charge 2 an excellent midrange fitness tracker.

Fitbit Charge 2 Activity Tracker In-Depth Review


It's been a bit over two months since Fitbit announced their latest wearables, (they also announced some Blaze updates and Alta bands at that time). This review however is purely focused on the Fitbit Charge 2, which is the successor for the original...

Best Fitbit device at the moment with heart rate monitoring

Fitbit Charge 2 reviewed: A calculated update that’s ideal for new users


At $150, the Charge 2 replaces the Charge HR as the best-value Fitbit device.

Larger display shows more information so you don't have to open the app as often ; Interchangeable bands let the more fashion-conscious among us switch things up ; Accurate SmartTrack auto-monitoring of exercises

Only supports connected GPS, so keep your phone with you if you need maps ; Cardio fitness score is only an estimate of VO2 max and is arguably limited in its usefulness ; Smartphone notifications are limited compared to other similarly priced devices

I've used both the Fitbit Charge HR and the Charge 2, and the latter feels like what the former should have always been. The larger touchscreen display is a great bump from the narrow original, letting you do more on the device itself, and those who...

Fitbit Charge 2 review


An all-rounder activity tracker that wants to take charge of your healthy lifestyle

Won’t put a massive dent in your wallet ; Straightforward UI anyone can understand ; FitBit app still the best for fitness freshmen

Can be too simple for its own good ; Where’s the waterproofing? ; No on-board GPS tracking

A no-nonsense middle ground between smartwatch and fitness tracker, but even with new additions there’s not enough here for fitness freaks
