Ever since my previous Fitbit, the Charge HR, died an early death I have been wearing a Fitbit Charge 2 in its place. Now that I’ve gotten a few months of use out of it I thought this might be a pretty good time to share my thoughts on this device and how I think it compares to the Charge HR. Like my previous Fitbit, the Charge 2 does all of the usual Fitbit things.
Around this time last year I was gifted a Fitbit Charge HR. Since then it unfortunately needed to be replaced (now with a new Fitbit Charge 2!) but I thought it would be interesting to take a look at my stats for the year. Now obviously December isn’t over yet so some of the stats for that month will be low but all the same I think these graphs are pretty neat to look at.
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. The band is separating from the face in two spots. One on the side… 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.
For Christmas last year I received a Fitbit Charge HR as a gift. For me a Fitbit is a funny thing; some people seem to approach wearing one as a magic fitness pill that will suddenly whip you into shape with no other effort required. While I have no such delusions I was interested in the amount of data that the little device can capture and provide me with (privacy implications of said data collection aside).
