  • Love My First Fitbit!

    from Calgary, AB on April 18, 2019

    I’ve been wanting to nab a Fitbit for myself to help me align with my weight goals, but for regular price, I never bothered. I only got this one now because there was a sale that dropped the price to 100 dollars +GST. It’s been a little over a month since I bought it, and I love it very much! All the features have worked for me, and I pretty much utilize most of its feature. It’s cool to see my sleep pattern and I also enjoy seeing my heart rate to see how hard I’m pushing myself when I go to my spin classes. Not only that, but the text message reader is very handy when I can’t pull out my phone. The app is simple to use and really helps me keep on track with my goals. However, did have an issue setting it up. The code that you need to enter when syncing it with your app, sometimes disappears too quickly or doesn’t pop up at all. I didn’t even know I had to put in a code to link them up. Somehow, after 10 minutes I manage to get the code back up on my Fitbit. Reason why I’m not dropping a star cause the fitbit’s main reason isn’t to be set up under 30 seconds. I expected to take some time and charge it before usage. So I will give them a pass Overall, love my Fitbit and I had no further issues! I care about my Fitbit so much I even got it a screen protector so I don’t get it scratched haha.

  • I enjoy my Fitbit.

    I had very good help from the staff at BestBuy. They even helped me set up the device. I needed that immensely as I am not too technologically adept.

    This is a review on the replacement protection warranty. WATCH OUT!!! Best Buy use to have the best warranty, I have many products from best buy including a digital camera, SLR camera, a MacBook, two other laptops, an ipad, an ipod, and a fitbit...HOWEVER, with this warranty they did not specify that you have to call geeksquad, that you deal with NO ONE in store about purchase I specifically asked if this included accidental damage/scratches, etc. and was told YES... IT DOES NOT!!! It only includes hardware defects - this also apparently doesn't include its ability to sync properly as I've been having some issues with this as well ... I then asked for a refund of the warranty then as if I would have known this I would not have purchased it - lets be real when it comes to hardware/defective products more often than not they blame the customer and say that warranty will not cover it - so I would NOT have purchased it if I would have known this!! I am very disappointed with Best Buy and find Geeksquad useless and unknowledgeable!!! Will be shopping elsewhere in the future!!!!!!!!!!!
