The Fitbit Charge HR 2 was a replacement to Fitbit’s discontinued Fitbit Force. As you may recall the Force was a popular band that Fitbit produced but for some reason some people had a reaction to the metal used on the back of the band causing Fitbit to discontinue it before it really became mainstream.
The new Fitbit Charge HR 2 is packed with functionality for most people’s fitness needs.
I used this device for about a year and was pretty happy with it overall. I enjoyed the fitness and sleep tracking but eventually began to miss some of the features of my Apple Watch…namely being able to respond to notifications I received. So while this is a competent fitness tracker it doesn’t really count as a smart watch. Battery life was about 5 days and it didn’t take long to charge.
Recommended? – Yes
Would I recommend this Fitbit model? As a fitness tracker yes I would. It accomplishes everything that most fitness trackers strive for. But just as I did, some people may find it lacking. Time will tell if Fitbit’s newest model the Ionic will fit the bill.
