Fitbit Charge HR - Reviews, Prices, Specs and Alternatives
Fitbit Charge HR
The Fitbit Charge HR is one of the most popular activity trackers for people who want be less sedentary throughout the day. The Fitbit Charge HR is stylishly built with a plain silicon band that holds the tracking device inside. It is compatible with Android, Windows and IOS smartphones, and is very comfortable to wear all day. You can also check the time and get call notifications on your Fitbit Charge HR from compatible phones, so it acts as a cheap smartwatch, rather than just a dedicated fitness tracker
The main advantage of this device over other cheaper fitness trackers are that your heart rate can be monitored while you are exercising, or even just while you are walking up stairs. However, it's important to bear in mind that Fitbit has recently come under fire for the inaccuracy of the heart rate in their fitness trackers, which according to some users can be up to 20-40 bpm off (especially during high intensity exercises). If you're looking to improve your fitness performance via heart rate training, you're better off getting a chest strap style monitor which is proven to be far more accurate.
The Fitbit Charge HR can continuously work for up to 5 days at a time in a single charge. This model comes with a standard sized OLED dispay and a single button. The strap is 21 mm and will fit men and women of all sizes. The small wrist strap is mainly designed for children (or very small wrists) while the large is better suited to most adult wrists. It can also track your steps, and show floors climbed, calories burned, distance traveled, elapsed time and inactive hours.Read full review Hide full review
