Fitbit Charge 2 Review

Over a year ago I wrote about how the Fitbit Charge HR was great for improving a persons fitness. I know this because I was a proud owner of one. Unfortunately my Fitbit died a couple of weeks ago. I found I couldn’t live without one so I had to buy another one. I settled for the Fitbit Charge 2. This post is a Fitbit Charge 2 review.

Fitbit Charge 2 Review How Good Is The Fitbit Charge 2

Fitbit-Charge-2-reviewThose who’ve read my post, you can read it by clicking the link above, know how much I loved my Fitbit Charge HR. That means I expect a hell of a lot from my new Fitbit Charge 2 The question is, how does it compare to my old Fitbit?

In a nut shell it is so much better than the old Fitbit. The first thing that stands out is its so much more stylish than the old one. For one thing the display is so much bigger which allows so much more information to be displayed.

You’ll notice in the image above that I have mine set to show the time, date, steps and heartbeat. I can still cycle through all the other settings simply by tapping on the screen

The other major change is that you can easily remove the band which allows the ability to accessorize. Check the wide range of bands available for the Fitbit Charge 2 available on eBay. Compare those with what is available on AliExpress

As far as the technical features go it has everything the Fitbit Charge HR has with the addition of multi-sport tracking. “The Fitbit Charge 2 lets you see real-time stats and a workout summary for the exercise you select, then saves the information in your exercise history.”

The Charge 2 also delivers more smartphone notifications. Call notifications and text message now appear on the screen.

With your Charge 2 you also get more information via the smartphone app. As good as the Fitbit is the app makes it so much better. It even has a relax breathing mode built into. Simply cycle through the settings until you get to relax menu, hold the button in and follow the instructions.

If I was in love with my Fitbit Charge HR I’m infatuated by the Charge 2.

Best Place To Buy Fitbit Charge 2

It’s not that hard to get a great deal of the Charge 2. My first port of call is always eBay. If eBay doesn’t bring any joy your next best bet has to be Amazon.

Protecting The Fitbit Charge 2 Screen

The first thing I had to do once I got the Charge 2 was to make sure I protect it from my workplace hazards. You’ll notice in the image above that the first screen protector I tried wasn’t all the best. The second one, which you can find here, is so much better. Not only was it easy to fit with glass like appearance, the military grade quality means its protective ability was a lot better. Not only that, there’s six in the pack!

I wanted something that also protected the body so I bought a silicon rubber case for it. There’s a huge selection but I naturally settled for the black one.
