Thanks to Verizon, I recently had the opportunity to try out the Fitbit Charge 2 for 90 days, and I loved it. This watch had so many features including guided breathing, interchangeable bands, a larger screen and new data tracking. I was able to download the Fitbit app and sync it with my phone in order to track my daily progress. I enjoyed my phone being connected to the Fitbit.
Since my Fitbit Charge 2 was connected to my phone via Bluetooth, I was able to receive text messages and phone calls on my watch. Although, I couldn’t reply, I enjoyed being able to see text messages and phone calls on my wrist.
I also enjoyed the live tracking while I was working out. I was able to go onto my app and see the progress I made as I was working out. The weekly progress report summaries worked well to update me on how much I did from day to day.
I even enjoyed doing the challenges on the Fitbit app with my Facebook friends. One of the challenges I participated in was the “weekend warrior challenge,” where I competed with Facebook friends to see who could take the most steps.
Along with tracking movement, the Fibit Charge 2 could track how many hours of sleep I received and track my sleeping patterns when I wore it to bed.
The Fitbit Charge 2 allows you to set alerts, and that worked well for me. I set alerts to tell me to get up and take a few steps after sitting at my desk for a while. I also had the alerts let me know if I was a certain amount of steps away from my hourly goal.
I think the fit of the Fitbit Charge 2 was comfortable and didn’t even feel like it was there. The battery held its charge well. And it looks nice. I work in a professional setting and the watch looked dressy enough to coordinate with my attire. The display of the screen was perfect to see the steps, current heart rate, time and date.
It was life changing and pivotal in my health. I felt more motivated to work out due to wearing the Fitbit and wanting to see the calories I burned. I will definitely be buying the Fitbit Charge 2.
