Cool toy but inaccurate

The Charge 2 isn't a bad device if you have money to waste. I found the charge lasted around 5-6 days with normal use, and the sleep tracking is cool but i'm not sure how accurate it was. The heart rate function seemed to work ok when hanging around the house, and it picked up most sets of stairs that I went up, but when I actually started working out the heart rate function would either be 20-30 bpm low (registered resting heart rate while working out) or didn't register a heart beat at all (only showed -- ). After a week of trying it in different locations and doing all the things Fitbit recommends (restart, on/off/auto, etc.) I decided it was pointless to own if it didn't do what I wanted when I wanted and returned it to the store.

Shoddy Wristbands

Bought mine at Best Buy about 18 months ago. Band came apart and I emailed Fitbit...customer service says their policies do not allow them to replace. The watch itself is fine - but the wristbands are awful (had to replace another model with a shoddy wristband). Won`t get fooled again.

Useful if only the band would stop breaking

Like the product, but in the last 1.5 years, the band has broken twice already. Once dropped while walking on the street and I didn't know it until someone pointed it out to me. I do a lot of activities and can't depend on this product if the band keeps breaking. Same break each time located at the connection to the watch face.

POS

Strap breaks very easily and the company doesn't do a thing about it. Spend the money and get an Apple watch.

Don’t buy

If you work late evenings, fitbit don’t allow you to set a time to start your day. So if you are a nurse, bartender etc, you have to stop and write everything down before midnight. Then add what you have done afterwards.

doesn't last

i've had my fitbit charge 2 for just over a year. and in this time i've had the watch strap replaced 3 times. unfortunately now that the year has passed they will no longer replace the strap, even though it is a known problem. i wouldn't recommend if you expect a product that will last.

Forget this if you want to track HR while exercising

I specifically bought the Fitbit Charge 2 because of the heart rate monitor for exercising as I;ve had stent surgery & need to know my heart rate to nor exceed limits. The Charge 2 HR monitor is fine for at rest or moderate walking but completely fails when heart rate is raised during more vigorous exercise like rowing, cycling, weights in the gym etc etc. I used a chest band monitor which was reading 135 BPM while the Charge 2 was telling me it was 93 BPM. I know the chest band was accurate for the effort I was putting in I'm returning it

nice to look at

I bought this to track my sleep. Unfortunately it is pretty much useless as a sleep tracker. Unfortunately I will be returning mine.

Charge 2 band is no better than the Charge

The buckle on the watch strap is a great idea but now mine broke where the band attaches to the watch. They need to rethink the whole band idea and use something other than the rubber so it won't break, and a higher quality of material for the face of the watch as well.

Junk

Can't get it to work. Won't pair or hook up. I should just be able to plug it in but I can't. 3 hours wasted downloading and searching for a fix.

Junk

This thing will not connect in Windows10. It is on the list to connect but keeps telling me to try and connect again. My Apple I5 can't detect it. Been trying all day and all night, nothing works. It's going back today for sure

Inaccurate Heart Rate

Every thing works well except when monitoring heart rate during high intensity workouts. Like other reviewers said, sometimes it will be off by 40 to 50 beats. If you wear it for step tracking or mild workout, it's a good device.

Problems

I am enjoying my Fitbit Charge 2 but today....less than a month from purchase, today it completely shut down. I charged it for 3hours..nothing. Help!

Bad at measuring heart rate

I love my original charge fitbit (despite the problem with the defective band) but I picked up a Charge 2 because I figured the heart rate monitor would be a great addition. I loved the tracking capabilities of the Charge 2 WHEN IT WORKED! However, the heart rate was constantly detecting either nothing (--) or a rate that was wildly incorrect by anywhere between 40 bps when not active (sitting on the couch watching tv) and 60 bps when active (running on the treadmill). I tried all the options to try to get it to read properly and nothing worked. It was simply not worth the money if the heart rate tracker wouldn't track properly. On top of that the sleep tracking was not intuitive enough to not count steps while sleeping. Leading to anywhere from 1000 to 6000 steps counted while I was asleep. Horrible!

Great Motivator

The Charge 2 is a great motivator and I really like the concept but the overall design is poor. The Charge 2 is thick with a sharp edge therefore it is constantly getting caught in the sleeve of my jacket and the cuff on my shirt. The band is very light duty and broke the first week when it caught while putting on my jacket. If you sit in an office all day and on the couch at night then the Charge 2 is for you. Fitbit needs to build a model for active people and for people who live in a climate where long sleeve shirts and coats are required.

Works pretty good

Got it for chirstmas, seem pretty accurate, use Samsung gear to cheat heart rate and two blood pressure monitor to check pulse and it's between + - 5 beats. The sleep tracking also works fine, scanning items with the barcode scanner also works well. It's a pretty deep if you look into it, you can configure what to show in the watch and in what order, I wish it has more info in the watch itself, the touch screen is a tap and I find the Samsung gear more elegant and swiping is more intuitive. Anyway like anything one should use this as another tool in getting fit, one should not really on this as the full answer. In the end the more you get to learn about this equipment and your lifestyle one should use all the knowledge gleen from all the source to hopefully make changes in eating, exercising and have a long and wonderful life.

Fitbit Charge 2

Nice Watch and the App helps keep you motivated, unfortunately, it is very frustrating to use when there is any sunlight. I hate the fact that I cannot quickly check my steps and heart rate or the time for that matter as the display is not bright enough in the sun. Great indoor and at night.

Fitbit lacking

I have only had it for two weeks and haven't figured what all the info means yet, but found it doesn't track my sleep patterns accurately. I like that it reminds me to move and records my steps.

wrong calorie calculation for walking/ hiking

As a rule of thumb a male @ 220 lbs will burn about 75 calories per km, the charge 2 fitbit calculates this burn at 150 calories. Very bad if you use the fitbit meal tracking against what the charge 2 fitbit claims you are burning. You may think you should lose weight but will gain it if you walk lots and consume 75% of what you burn


  • from Calgary, AB

a step tracker at best

The fitbit charge 2 does not read heart rate correctly, it reads my heart rate in the cardio range when I walk, also the calorie burn is way off. I've been relying on the calorie burn from this device to determine my calorie intake, so I burn over 4,000 a day as per this device and log in 2,000 or less intake, but as per my fitbit scale i gain 1.5 lbs per week. My wife's fitbit reads my heart rate the same. Seems you need to calc calorie burn manually based on you weight, type of exercises and duration. Funny, the Microsoft Band was way more accurate but Microsoft limited fore sight toasted the product rather than move the battery from the strap to the device...

Fitbit charge 2 will not sync

Had the Garmin and made the mistake of exchange it for this and for the last 2 days been trying to sync it. Tried resetting it and no matter what I tried still unable to sync it. Extremely frustrating..going to get the Garmin back as it had way more features and sync easily. Not impressed.

Not fit!

Was given a Fitbit Charge 2 for Fathers Day. Does not keep accurate 'sleep' mode. And, I've had many back-and-forth with Fitbit reps on what I may do to resolve this. And, the bpm accuracy doesn't seem to be accurate. But, it does keep time accurately. Although I didn't buy it for a watch!

Fitbit Charger 2 not living up to its hype

Sleep tracker does not work for me. I've tried all the 'fixes' suggested by Fitbit. Over a 2 week period it tracked as little as 45 minutes sleep to 5.5 hours sleep. I was told by Fitbit that if I move in my sleep too much it won't track accurately. Don't most people move while sleeping? So, I don't bother wearing it to bed to track my sleep any longer. I mainly use it as a watch and it seems to track steps fairly accurately. I got this Fitbit Charger 2 as a fathers day gift. Too bad for me it hasn't lived up to its potential.

Good quality fitness tracker

This is my second Fitbit. I really like their quality and functionality. The text display on the tracker is a nice feature as well as the hourly reminders to get up and move! I would recommend this product.

Problematic and disappointing

Went through two of these in a week. Best Buy was great and gave me all the support they could and FitBit spent over 6 hours trying to help me get the trackers going. The first never was able to sync with either Android or Windows 10 platforms. The second was able to run on my Android for four days then could no longer sync. I just gave up as the product would not work on any Windows 10 computer and would not perform with reliability on my Android smart phone even though it was listed as being compatible and the operating systems were up to date. Check on-line forums to see what issues people are dealing with and if they affect you before buying.

Silent Alert does NOT Work

This watch is beautiful and works exceedingly well, but if you need an alarm, you'll have to use your mobile phone. I need the alarm, so I may be taking back a second watch. The vibration can hardly be felt even when you are looking at the watch -- not good. So hard to rate this as it is 5 star if you don't need awn alert and 1 star if you do

Replace the b with sh

My wife purchase this for me to monitor my heart rate after heart surgery. I have to say it works great, as long as I am not exercising. Once I get on the treadmill it under represents my heart rate by between 10 and 50%. That is when it is actually tracking my heart rate at all. (two horizontal bars where the heart rate should be) If I could give this POS a ZERO start rating I would. This is a novelty item. The "mood ring" of exercise monitors. Don't waste you money if you want something to track you exercise.

My husband bought for me last year for Christmas and it's so good. It's complicated a little bit but when you open your mind and try to learning then you will find out a lot more about your self and your activities per day and per month you will do.

Good Concept But Not Very Useful

I like the concept but is not a great fitness tracker. Monitors HR accurately for low intensity exercises but for moderate and high intensity exercises my Polar HR Monitor does a much better job. There is as much as 50% difference between the two. Great device for getting inactive people mobile but if you are looking for a good fitness tracker the Fitbit is not it. After using my Fitbit for a month, I have gone back to my Polar HR Monitor,

Pleased with purchase.

My wife and I purchased chg 2 trackers a month ago. Set up was easy. Loving all features, step display, HR, sleep tracker, consumption, etc, etc and how they are broken down with additional charts. Appreciate how data appears on all our other electronic devices. We have been moderately increasing our goals successfully. It looks like this will be a devise that we will be able to utilize on an on going basis. Doesn't tabulate stairs accurately or steps when carrying things tightly in your arms. Not really a problem but if a slight design tweak could correct that it would be helpful.

Had the Previous version (Charge) screen looks sharp, not as big as some of the other devices, but just large enough, comfortable, and amazing battery life, also improved bracelet clasp (lower profile now) On sale is a great buy

Vibration? Seriously?

A very good looking and comfortable band. The only problem is the vibration - unlike the Fitbit Charge, the Fitbit Charge 2 has a virtually non-existent vibration. It is a super slight buzz, and you will miss it 95% of the time unless you're concentrating on your wrist. For some reason they've downgraded the vibration motor. There is no way to increase it through software.


  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great

It's lived up to all expectations so far. I like how I'm able to track a bunch of health related data like heart rate, activity, sleep, food and water relatively easily and all in one app with the single device. Obviously you can't go swimming with it or shower with it on as it's an electronic device that isn't designed for that, but so far it's performed well with sweat and heat, as I've worn it in a dry sauna. Would recommend for anyone looking for a fitness tracker/watch combo that isn't as bulky as the larger version, but still has a decent interactive display.

Excellent fitness tracker

Does everything you would expect it to do. Does a great job tracking steps and has a very accurate heart rate sensor. Very impressed with FitBit customer service as well. I accidentally scratched the screen 3 days after getting it and they sent me a free replacement in a brand new retail box. They said the replacement would take 5-7 days to arrive but it arrived the next day. Quite satisfied overall.

Awesome

It's great! It motivates me to do exercise and other activities like shovelling. I love how it tracks different types of exercise and the stop watch is very handy. It also displays calls and texts which is really handy. The previous review is ridiculous and should be deleted. You are not supposed to wear it in the shower.

Works really well

It's simple and does what it's supposed to do. I like how you get a little preview of incoming text messages. It's NOT waterproof and it clearly tells you that. The wrist band is much more comfortable than the first model they came out with.

Much better than Charge 1

Read the instructions. Didn't wear in shower. Yet anyways : ) Works better than Charge 1. Continuous heart rate is a plus and the battery life is still comparable. Love the ability to change bands. Bought a steel one (non-fitbit brand) online and it interchanges easily. Sleep works better than Charge 1 too, but with sleep apnea it still doesn't always read correctly. Love the new "tour" features that simulate routes for finding stuff. A neat addition I didn't think I would enjoy. Last 5 days on full charge as advertised. 1-2 hour charge time from empty as noted. I tossed my Charge 1 because the band kept coming unglued. Fitbit sent me a replacement free, but it happened again. This model is built much better and doesn't look to have a peel point. So far I am very happy.

Don't Buy If Using With Windows 10 App

If you intend to sync this watch with a home desktop or laptop instead of a phone, don't waste your money. It will not do necessary firmware updates well. After downloading the Windows 10 and PC apps (tried both after reading one of hundreds of "fix it" blogs on this product), you'll quit. If you do purchase it, keep all the cute plastic wrapping and nice box it comes it because you'll need to reconstruct it to return it.
