Fitbit Charge 2 Review

We are living in an era where we have more tech gadgets around us as compared to humans. Technology has not only evolved but has now become a very important part of our daily life. It is very hard to consider an environment which lacks the involvement of technology because from the wall clock to spaceship everything is categorized as technology. Because technology has now got involved in every aspect of our lives, the fitness industry has also come up with some health tech gadgets. We are talking about health wristwatches that have recently become very popular among the fitness freaks.
One of them is the Fitbit Charge two that has been launched recently, and the manufacturers are getting the best response that they can imagine. Those who are already using the previous models from Fit Bit will agree that the manufacturers provide some of the best health watches but are Fitbit matches the standards that they have set already? Let’s find out. We will review Fit Bit in this article and will find out what the best seller for 18 months have now to offer.

Fitbit Charge 2

The Fitbit Charge 2 is a digital fitness tracker watch that tracks the heart rate of the user and also measures the burned calories throughout the day. Not only this, but this Fitbit Charge 2 has all the features that a health watch should have to help in fat burn, cardio, and fitness tracking. Users can see text on the watch and can set schedules on the calendar. The Fitbit charge 2 tracks your sleep and also wakes you up with the alarm. For a better fitness score, the watch can be connected via GPS during the run mode, and users can then see the real-time stats on the watch. But these are some of the features that almost every digital watch offer these days. Let’s now look at the design of the watch.

Design

If you have seen older models from Fitbit, then you will not see much of a difference in design because Fitbit has a unique design when it comes to their watches. Usually, the fitness watches available in the market are in the oval or circle shape, but Fitbit has revolutionized the design but making their watches of a rectangle shape. This means you can get a large screen and can enjoy more details. However, the band of the watch is a little thicker, and it will take more room on your wrist. The best thing is that the bands of the watch are removable which means that you can easily swap the bands or can remove them for the cleaning purposes. Even if you end up damaging the band of the watch during the workout, then you should not have to buy a whole new watch. You can simply order the bands and can replace them. Also, the screen of the watch is an OLED display which is easy to read, and the touch screen makes it easy to interact with the watch. Overall the design of the watch is customizable and hence comfortable which means that users can wear it all day long and even in the bed. However, this is not a waterproof watch which means that you cannot wear it while taking a bath, in the rain or while swimming.

Specification

In specs, Fitbit Charge 2 is a little similar to its older models, but there are some innovations introduced in this model as well. There is no personal GPS available on the board, but this watch can use your phone’s GPS to provide you with the location services. One new thing that the manufacturers have introduced in this watch is their guided breathing feature. This is a very useful feature to get relaxed after a heavy workout. You can also pause and resume your workout session, and with the always-on heart tracker, you can make your workout sessions more effective. This seems to be a perfect watch for those who are looking to lose some weight. Because there is a multi-sports tracking feature available in this digital watch with which the user can track the treadmill or outdoor running, weight training, walking steps and even the interval workouts. The tracing system is automatic and once you start running the watch starts to monitor your session. Another remarkable feature of this watch is the Pure Plus heart rate tracker that tracks the heart rate without the chest strap, and with this tracker, you can even set a breathing challenge for yourself to improve your condition after the workouts. This is probably the feature that we have not seen in any other fitness watch in the market. Even the older models from Fitbit doesn’t have this guided
breathing feature.

Compatibility

The watch is compatible with almost every android, windows and IOS device and the connection process is not that difficult as well. But you should have android version better than KitKat 4.3 or iPhone above 4S to get it connected to your phone. It can be detected and connected to the Bluetooth, and it will then use the phone’s GPS to receive the notifications. Other than the fitness tracking the watch can also be used to receive calls and SMS. However, you cannot type messages from the watch but can use voice commands to put the instructions in.
The app of the watch has a very simple interface, and anyone can set it up easily. The app offers the features in details, and you don’t even have to pay for the app. You can install the app, and after connecting the watch, you will get the details of your workout sessions in detail.
Talking about the specs, a battery is something that always remains a concern with these type of gadgets. The Fitbit Charge 2 has a battery timing of more than four days, and it gets charged within 2 hours. This means that you don’t have to charge your watch every other day to use it. You just have to look for the charger of the watch twice in a week. You can even set up an email notification for your watch battery, and it will notify you when it needs to be charged.

Conclusion

There are a variety of trackers available in this watch that is perfect for any fitness lover especially for those who are looking to lose some weight efficiently. We believe that this can be the perfect partner for weight losers as it will assist them during the process. The price of the watch is also very affordable as it can be purchased for only 148 dollars. Even if you already have a Fitbit watch, then it is worth updating to this model. The features and specs of this watch are undoubtedly better than the average, and you will find every feature in the watch that should be there in a fitness watch. For those who are looking to make their workout sessions more effective should invest in this Fitbit Charge 2 watch.
