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.
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).
