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

Charge 2 is the best Fitbit yet (review)


Just about everything you need for fitness... except GPS and water resistance.

Swappable bands. A multi-line OLED display that can show time and fitness data. Always-on heart rate. A great companion app. Affordable price. Five-day battery life.

Not water-resistant for swims or showers. Lacks GPS. Phone notifications on the Charge 2 display are limited and hard to read.

If you don't need water resistance and GPS, the Fitbit Charge 2 is the best overall fitness tracker you can buy.

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 review: The best all-around activity tracker, despite heated competition


When I reviewed the Fitbit Blaze a few months ago, one of my main complaints was its bulky design and the identity crisis over what it actually is: a

Svelte design ; The Charge 2 looks nice on the wrist and doesn't draw attention the way the Fitbit Blaze or Surge do. It's also very comfortable to wear. ; Removable bands ; If the Charge 2's band gets torn or old, or if you get bored of the color or...

Battery life ; Fitbit seems to have decided that 4-5 days of battery life is good enough, but other brands are offering much more. ; Not swim or shower-friendly ; It's relatively water-resistant, but it's not recommended to swim or shower with the...
