Fitbit Charge HR review


With a heart rate sensor on board can the Fitbit Charge HR plug the gap between casual tracker and serious sports watch?

Continuous heart rate monitoring ; Lightweight design ; Simple operation

Screen too small for smart notifications ; Expensive considering the competition ; Yet another charger

Subtle and understated, the Charge HR is a nice compromise between casual step counter and hardcore fitness tracker

Fitbit Charge HR Review: This Is The One You Want


Fitbit is such a tease. In October, the company announced three new fitness trackers just in time for the holiday gift-giving season-but decided not to ship

Yes. You should. If you want a standalone fitness tracker. This is a really, really good fitness tracker and it's reasonably priced for what it can do. Not only that, it's very accurate, it's super easy to use, and it's not bad looking. Fitbit really...

Fitbit Charge HR


The Fitbit Charge HR is the Fitbit Charge with the addition of a heart-rate sensor to continuously track your heartbeat and deliver a more comprehensive log of your workouts and daily activity.

Accurate heart-rate tracking ; More secure strap than Charge ; Easy-to-use app

Lacks data analysis ; A little itchy to wear on occasion ; Not waterproof

The Fitbit Charge HR is a good fitness tracker, but it needs to do more to win its place upon your wrist ahead of rival bands.

Fitbit Charge HR fitness band review


It's not as precise as other heart-rate monitors, but Fitbit's Charge HR will still motivate you to move more and charge into workouts harder.

We’ve been Fitbit fans since first trying the Fitbit Flex. For us, the programmable vibration alarms alone make the Charge HR band worth owning. Waking up to the brain-scrambling blast of an audible alarm seems like cruel and unusual punishment after...

Fitbit Charge HR black, large


I was a little bit wrong about the Fitbit Charge HR.

Continuous heart rate tracking. Slim design. Affordable price. Works with Windows, iPhone and Android phones. Fitbit's massive popularity means you'll be able to join up and compete with friends. Connects with many third-party fitness apps. Automatic...

Design and fit aren't ideal for glancing at heart rate. Not shower or swim-friendly. OLED display turns off after a few seconds, which gets annoying. Heart-rate coaching and goal-setting isn't intuitive.

Fitbit's Charge HR combines heart rate tracking, sleep tracking and fitness into an affordable, slim band with good battery life. It's a hard combination to beat.

Fitbit Charge HR


Reasonably priced for an all-day activity tracker with a continuous heart rate monitor, the Fitbit Charge HR looks sleek on the wrist. A slim profile make it truly wearable for people of all sizes. While it's not ideal for serious runners or exercise...

Continuous, optical heart rate monitor built in. Reasonable price. Slim design. Tracks steps, miles, stairs, calories burned, sleep, heart rate, and exercise activities. Excellent app and website. Compatible with practically every OS. Beautiful and...

Water-resistant, but not waterproof. No smartwatch functionality beyond caller ID. No idle alerts. REM, light, and deep sleep not assessed.

Review: Fitbit Charge HR


The new Fitbit Charge HR is a new wearable band that can measure your heart rate. And it works pretty well, as long as you...

Stellar battery life: 5 to 7 days per charge. Soft band. Easy to use and sync. Highly accurate step and sleep tracking. Well-designed mobile app with data presented in easy-to-understand graphs

Not waterproof. Heart-rate tracking not accurate for high heart rates. Pulse-tracking LEDs are alarmingly bright at night. Watch clasp grows uncomfortable when worn 24/7. No Apple Health integration, though not a huge knock against the Charge HR since...

Fitbit Charge HR ( plum, large)


Was it really the fitness, or was it the idea of turning fitness-based into something fun?

The Fitbit Charge HR adds continuous heart-rate tracking to all of the other features already available in the stepdown Fitbit Charge for just a bit more money. Resting heart-rate readings reasonably accurate.

Design and fit aren't ideal for glancing at heart rate; active exercise causes accuracy drop-offs; not shower or swim-friendly. OLED display turns off after a few seconds, which gets annoying. Heart-rate coaching and goal-setting isn't intuitive.

Fitbit's Charge HR adds heart-rate tracking to an already solid fitness band at a great price, but all the kinks don't feel fully ironed out yet.
