Fitbit Charge 2 verdict: the best-value fitness band


With Christmas just around the corner, we thought it might be fun to review some potential gifts – including Fitbit's latest fitness band, the Charge 2.

It’s hard to find fault with the Fitbit Charge 2. Yes, it doesn’t have GPS built in, but aside from that, it has pretty much everything the casual fitness fan could possibly want in a streamlined, attractive package.

Strap falling apart, yet again...


I bought the Charge HR because I was very interested in the heart rate function, despite my hesitations based on previous experiences of other models falling apart after several months. In terms of function, the fitbit does exactly what it says it...

Awesome accessory to have!


I love my FitBit Charge 2 because I can see how many steps I've walked during the day; the stats are interesting and puts perspective on how active you really are. It also measures pulse rate which is helpful during exercises. I can also link it to my...
