About The Fitbit Charge 2
The Fitbit Charge 2 fitness watch is a Heart Rate monitor plus a Fitness Wristband. It puts your daily exercise motivation on your wrist and adds smartphone notifications you need most and includes a sleek design with an interactive OLED display.
It tracks heart rate continuously to maximize workouts, tracks calorie burn and provides a clear picture of your health.
The Fitbit Charge 2 essentially replaced the Alta and Blaze which were dropped earlier in 2016.
With the Charge 2, there’s a host of new features including guided breathing, interchangeable bands, a larger screen and new data tracking with VO2 Max.
It is a is a very affordable (0) tracker that captures your activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while measuring your heart rate and monitoring your sleep. Another awesome thing about this fit watch is it has connected GPS.
The Charge 2 connects with your phone to push call, text and email alerts to your watch.

Who is The Fitbit Charge 2 for?
I really feel that fitness should not be a laborious en-devour, but should be an everyday activity, capturing what you enjoy doing into your fitness activities. So, rather than locking yourself into a workout room slaving away on the treadmill, perhaps it would be better to take a jog or walk in a beautiful park. Or, if you enjoy a particular sport, like handball or something that you enjoy, doing that instead. It provides a better mindset overall.
So, that being said, you can wear the Charge 2 around the clock, and you get a pretty accurate look at your general health when it comes to sweating it out as well as resting. It records your approximate calories burned, flights of steps climbed, hours slept, steps taken—and your resting heart rate, too. This is what we really love about the Fitbit Charge 2.
Now comes the best part, the comfort and style. This is a very stylish fit watch. When I put this on for the first time, I was amazed, not only about how it looked on my wrist, but how comfortable it was. you can interchange the bands with either one of fours choices. The video above shows what these look like. It really does not look like a fit-watch, unless you really look at it closely. This makes it a perfect fit for a women.
Another surprise feature was the “relax” tool. At any moment, if I was feeling a little frazzled or in a panic, the quick 3-minute breathing exercise helped bring me back to a calm and relaxed state of mind, staying energized with a clear state of mind.

- The heart rate monitor on the back protrudes a bit, but after using the Charge 2 for quite a while we haven’t noticed it as much as we thought.
- The Charge 2 is water resistant, but not waterproof, meaning it’s fine dealing with sweat and rain, but Fitbit doesn’t recommend taking it in the shower, which is a little annoying. Given how much the Charge 2 does, we feel like we should be able to take it into the pool too.
