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 review: No heart rate, but everything else

 

The Charge is a good fitness band, but the heart-rate-tracking Charge HR costs only a bit more. You might want to spend up.

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

 

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...

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’s new Charge brings much-welcomed features without breaking much ground

 

Since 2013, the human wrist has served as the company's primary domain. That year Fitbit offered up the Flex, a simple wearable designed to keep track of activity and sleep. A year later, it launched the Charge, a more sophisticated take on the space...

A good fitness band is a delicate balance between minimalism and the latest features. Too few and you get lost in the noise. Too many and you might as well be selling a smartwatch. Fitbit’s done a pretty solid job walking that line here. Not all of the...

The Fitbit Charge is an activity tracker that wants you to compete with friends

 

The funny thing about wanting to get into shape is that you have to want it. No diet or exercise regimen on Earth will matter if you can't make yourself stick with it. Forming healthy habits and making sure you follow through is the only way to...

Fitbit is well-known for their activity trackers, and has a vast community of people wanting to improve themselves. If you think this sort of thing will help you achieve your goals, mainly to not drive you crazy with having to keep tabs on everything...

Fitbit Charge: Is This The Force Awoken?

 

To say I was excited when I heard about the Fitbit Charge is an understatement. I was an active user of the Fitbit Force ( my thoughts on the Force here ) and was unable to get a replacement when mine had an issue due to the recall Fitbit had on the...

Fitbit Charge Review

 

The Fitbit Charge takes everything I liked about the Fitbit Force — activity, steps and sleep tracking — and adds caller ID to the mix. I didn't really find the newest feature all that useful, but it's a nice addition. The Fitbit Charge is thicker...

Comfortable wristband ; Automatic sleep tracking ; Caller ID

Bland app ; Limited notifications

The Fitbit Charge is a comfortable and long-lasting fitness tracker that adds caller ID to the mix, but we'd prefer more notifications.
