Fitbit Charge Review

The Fitbit Charge is a well-designed fitness band that shows your step tracks and displays time. It will also notify you when you have phone calls and it’s easy to sync automatically with a wide variety of devices. On the flipside, it comes with an outdated app when compared to its competition. What does this little beauty have to offer?


The Fitbit Charge replaces the Fitbit Force which was discontinued and it’s really worth its salt. The Fitbit Force was one of the best fitness trackers of the year 2013 alongside Jawbone Up24 but was later discontinued due to health concerns. However, the guys at the Fitbit headquarters had to come up with something quickly and that’s when they introduced the Fitbit Charge, which as you will learn, is a better FitBit Force. It automatically tracks your sleeping patterns and also notifies you when you have a call; these features were missing in the FitBit Force.


Unfortunately, the Fitbit Charge HR which is a follow up of the Fitbit Charge comes with a heart rate monitor and you only need to dig a bit more into your pockets which is really worth it. Unless you don’t need the heart rate monitor, this is still a viable option.


The Fitbit Charge has the looks of a smart watch and those of a fitness band. It’s half a smartwatch and half a fitness band. However, it’s functional as you will see the distance you have travelled, stairs covered, steps taken, calories burnt and current time with just a simple double tap on the screen. You only have two colors to choose from at the moment; slate and black.


The Charge is a good fitness band which feels comfy on your wrist. It’s actually very light that you might forget to take it off when taking a shower. Unfortunately, it’s not waterproof so you need to keep it away from pools and showers. Its performance is good but not the best. When it comes to accuracy of distance covered, the device seems a bit off. The competition, namely Microsoft band does a better job when it comes to accuracy.
One of its strengths is its compatibility. You can automatically pair it with a wide variety of devices from Windows to iOS. There are over 100 devices that are compatible with its apps. However, the app seems a bit outdated as it lacks the heart rate monitor which seems like a must have for a fitness band. However, this is sorted out with its upgrade, the Charge HR.

 

All in all, this is just an average fitness band. It won’t break any records or offer any special features but will get the job done and done well. Unfortunately, tracking your steps isn’t much of a big deal these days as there are cheaper devices that can get the job done. Find yourself a cheap pedometer or a Smartphone and you will have your steps tracked. However, the Fitbit Charge does it better and comes with a great design and at the same time doubles as a wrist watch. So, why not have yourself one?

  • The Good :
    Comfortable design. Automatically syncs with a wide variety of devices
  • The Bad :
    Outdated app
Our score:
3.5 / 5
