The Fitbit Chargeâ„¢ is a highly functional fitness tracker. Worn around the wrist, it monitors your activity and sleep patterns day and night.
Tracking steps taken, distance covered, floors climbed, active minutes and calories burned, the Charge places itself right in amongst the most sophisticated trackers available today.
One of its key features is its long battery life of 7-10 days, far out-competing a lot of its rivals in this area. What is more, the bright OLED display letâ€™s you see all of stats right on your wrist as they happen.
Doubling as a digital watch, the Fitbit Charge also syncs wirelessly with your smartphone, and alerts you to caller ID notifications when out jogging with your phone in your pocket.
The Charge also works as a vibrating alarm and sleep tracker. If you leave it on your wrist at night it will also automatically monitor your sleep patterns, which you can then view in the dashboard of the accompanying app.
Watch the Fitbit Charge in Action
“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 next year.”
