As you may recall I was gifted a Fitbit Charge HR last year and have quite enjoyed using it as my fitness tracker. Unfortunately it seems my time with it is coming to an end as the band has started to peel away from the face of the device.
Checking out this issue online seems to indicate that this is a somewhat common problem and because the band is not replaceable the only solution is to get a new device.
I contacted Fitbit’s support and, after checking into the remaining warranty on the device, they offered me two different options: get another Charge HR for free or receive a substantial discount on the newly released Charge 2. While it obviously wouldn’t have cost me anything to simply replace it like-for-like I ended up deciding to upgrade to the Charge 2 instead – partly because of the new features that the Charge 2 offers but mostly because it allows you to replace the bands should this ever happen again.
