Fitbit is among one of the most popular brands when it comes to Fitness bands.
After the huge success of the Fitbit charge HR, they have come up with the Fitbit Charge 2.
It has got varimproved features. Keep reading this article to know more about those features of Fitbit charge 2.
Today, we will be reviewing the new Fitbit charge 2 and let’s discover, if it is worth for its price?
Let us now begin.
The major improvement in the Fitbit charge 2 is its display.
The Fitbit charge HR was released with a tiny display. Many users had complaint about it, but that’s not the case with the Fitbit charge 2.
The display is now much bigger.
It is still not a Full color display (which is not necessary in a fitness tracker) but it would be good if they had provided a full color display in this fitness tracker at this price.
It’s a touch display, though the touch is not as responsive as the touch display that you get in other fitness trackers at this price.
It works 8 out of 10 times in most cases.
There could have been improvement here.
Apart from screen touch Fitbit Charge 2 has a physical button at one side of the fitness tracker by which you can perform various functions.
There is no major upgrade in the band but now it can be easily replaced without any kind of tool.
All you need to do is to press the button onto the band and it will pop out. By this way, you can change the band easily.
Now, let us talk about the Heart sensor of the Fitbit charge 2 which you can find at the back of the Tracker right above the charging pins.
Fitbit has always done a good job in this department and the Fitbit charge 2 is no exception.
The heart rate sensor works perfectly fine and it is super accurate most of the times.
You will not face any problem with the Heart rate sensor.
You can buy this fitness band in different colour options, but the problem here is that there is a gigantic price difference between some colours.
For an example, for the price of the one single gunmetal or lavender rose gold variant, you can buy 2 standard black Fitness charge 2 bands.
There are many smart features in the Fitbit charge 2 which includes call, text and calendar alerts which you can get on the band if it is connected to your Android/iOS device.
In order to sync the fitness band with your Android/iOS device, you will have to download the Fitbit application from the Google play store or Apple app store.
The syncing process is very easy and the User interface of the application is very elegant and easy to understand.
You can keep an eye on all your fitness activities with the help of this application.
Talking about the battery life, you get 5-6 days of battery life which is decent but you get a much bigger battery life in Mi band 3 or Honor band 4 which are available for a much lower price tag.
Although, the 5-6 hours of battery life is also good considering that the auto sleep monitoring will be turned on all the time.
There is no option by which you can disable this feature to extend the battery life.
