First, disregard the reviews from all the "personal trainers" and "hardcore" gym goers out there. It's amazing how everyone becomes a trainer or gym rat when reviewing a piece of workout equipment. Wrist based heart rate monitoring is still in its infancy and if, and I stress if, you are so hardcore that a possible 5-10 beat variation is so critical then you need to stay with chest based HR monitoring for awhile. The Charge HR isn't for that. Not to mention, I haven't seen that it is off like others have said. I was skeptical and I have a Garmin Running GPS watch with a chest HR strap and I see the two being pretty consistent.
Second, I cannot stress enough the quality of the Fitbit app and web based dashboard. They are motivational and intuitive and they give you goals to shoot for. I have yet to see any sync issues or any of the other nonsense I have seen in other reviews.
Finally, $150 is a lot of money but it less than other comparable products out there. To me this is the perfect entry level device. If you like the concept and are disciplined, then you can upgrade to another device. if you are trying to get a snapshot of what you are doing on a daily basis and how you can make some life and fitness improvements, this device is a perfect way in.Read more ›
I've heard people complain about the price, but when you compare it to the value of what you get, the price doesn't even come into it. I've lost 2.5kg in one month just by pushing myself to walk at least 10K steps a day; no dieting, no gym.
Oh, and I also wear it on my ankle while I'm sleeping. (I can't wear watches in bed!), I got a 20c hair band to extend it, and it tracks everything perfectly while I'm zzz-ing.
Oh the simplest thing about the device that gives me great pleasure is that the Fitbit Charge HR vibrates when:
1. You've set an alarm
2. Your phone rings (provided you have Bluetooth enabled)
3. When you've reached the step goal that you set
All-in-all, I recommend anyone who wants to get fit to buy it. It's the cost of a few restaurant dinners. Cut back on those, and you'll get quick super fast so you will be able to afford to eat as much as you like!
Now it’s December 2015 and the band of my 3rd Fitbit Charge HR is malfunctioning, at this point I don’t want a replacement I’d rather a refund. I was told I wasn’t eligible for one (hey I understand its business), but what got under my skin was they offer of 25% off their Fitbit Surge (a larger device/upgrade). So they want me to spend more money on their products? Wow, that’s just crazy, especially since I know that the Surge devices are also prone to band issues per a coworker’s watch and a friend. I wrote this blog to vent a little, but also to warn other consumers that just because a wearable is the most popular, or has the most commercials don’t mean it’s the best. Also just because you haven’t heard of problems with the device personally (through your immediate circles) doesn’t mean they are without issues.
So far I've been impressed with the results of the Charge HR. I'll list the pros and cons.
Auto Sleep Log: Much more convenient than having to start and stop on the Flex. I don't always fall asleep when I logged it with the Flex so having the Charge HR start it when I actually fall asleep is great.
Logging Exercise: I love the ability to log each workout session. With the Flex I felt that my strength training sessions were lost because they weren't constant hand swinging movements. I can also better track how long my workout sessions were. This leads into my next pro.
The HR Monitor is a constant and checks your resting heart rate vs when you are active. This is great for calculating your caloric burn and if you want to see where your fat burning zone is. I think this provides a great tool to track your workouts more accurately.
This is a great motivator to take the stairs. I was taking the stairs with the Flex but it didn't capture that accurately. I go up 6 flights of stairs to my office at least 3 times a day and would like credit for that.Read more ›
