One year later, Fitbit Charge HR stands out as the best


The Fitbit Charge HR still lacks in-depth coaching, but its combination of features, size and price are unmatched...and if you find it on sale you should buy it.

Continuous heart rate tracking. Slim design. Affordable price. Works with Windows, iPhone and Android phones. Fitbit's massive popularity means you'll be able to join up and compete with friends. Connects with many third-party fitness apps. Automatic...

Design and fit aren't ideal for glancing at heart rate. Not shower or swim-friendly. OLED display turns off after a few seconds, which gets annoying. Heart-rate coaching and goal-setting isn't intuitive.

Fitbit's Charge HR combines heart rate tracking, sleep tracking and fitness into an affordable, slim band with good battery life. It's a hard combination to beat.

Expensive for what it is


As far as wearable tech goes, Fitbit is usually has the best ecosystem, app and social media applications. Other than that the quality is lacking for this product. Strap is low qual and the step counter isn't all that accurate. Otherwise, it works...

Two in less than 12 months


Had two that both broke within two months. Lucky I had extended warranty. Very poor quality. The case is not designed to be worn, which defeats the purpose of wearable technology to start with. Would not recommend this product to anyone. Save your...

Functions well.


Had the Charge HR for 2.5 years now. I found the heart rate function was pretty accurate - I wore it at the same time as my Garmin with chest strap. Both indicated very similar HR. This function was what I was most interested in. Mine isn't water proof...

Great tracker..pity about its durability


Excellent and easy to use and accurately counts steps with minimal setup. Screen display hard to see when in direct sunlight due to glare. Only flaw is the poor quality with charger button snapping (including after replacement warranty). Also great in...

Good while it lasts


Purchased it 2015 christmas from officeworks and i surely did love it for the time it worked. I wore it all day and took it off only in the shower and at night (made my skin irritated if i kept it on all day). Synced in to the Fitbit app on my phone...

Perfect and slim wearable


Fitbit's Charge HR combines heart rate tracking, sleep tracking and fitness into an affordable, slim band with good battery life. ... I was a little bit wrong about the Fitbit Charge HR. ... The Charge HR is Fitbit's step-counting band, plus a...

Its ok


The fitbit is ok. I don't really understand the craze and I usually exercise so I don't really need a watch to tell me I've walked 100 steps already. It's a bit pricey to remind me to do my exercise daily. However it does work well and looks good on...

Had only a year & has fallen apart!


At first this watch did more than I expected with being a watch & a pedometer, plus other things. Sadly due to it being bulky I caught it on the door handle & cracked the left side with in a week! It still worked fine. The other side craked 2 weeks ago...

good price and trendy


The Fitbit HR monitors your heart rate automatically and continuously right on your wrist and tracks your calories burned all on your wrist. Also tells the time and counts the steps you walk in a day. Great for when you have the work place challenges...
