Fitbit Charge 2

 

Fitbit Charge 2 long-term review: The Charge 2 improves over the original and adds customisability.

Interchangeable bands ; Large display for at-a-glance information ; Comfortable to wear ; Consistent tracking ; Cardio Fitness score is a useful metric ; 5-day battery life ; Updated with Sleep Stages and Sleep Insights

No GPS (GPS Connected mode requires your smartphone) ; Gesture recognition is ropey ; Basic notifications

Over the years, I’ve worn a whole raft of Fitbit trackers and so have seen many of the changes that the app has undergone. One area the company should be applauded for is updating its app with new features and improving the interface. It’s really...

Fitbit Charge 2 review

 

An all-rounder activity tracker that wants to take charge of your healthy lifestyle

Won’t put a massive dent in your wallet ; Straightforward UI anyone can understand ; FitBit app still the best for fitness freshmen

Can be too simple for its own good ; Where’s the waterproofing? ; No on-board GPS tracking

A no-nonsense middle ground between smartwatch and fitness tracker, but even with new additions there’s not enough here for fitness freaks

Fitbit Charge 2 review: Taking charge

 

The Fitbit Charge HR was the fitness tracker to beat in 2015. It wasn't only one of the best from the company - which also makes the Surge, Blaze and Alta - but one of the best dedicated trackers with heart-rate monitoring from any manufacturer....

Premium design, larger display, accurate step and sleep tracking, interchangeable straps, extensive features, great battery life, fantastic app interface

No waterproofing, smartphone notifications could be smarter, some data could be easier to find on app,

There's a lot to love about the Charge 2. It takes the best features from the Fitbit Charge HR and Alta, while adding a few more including VO2 Max and Guided Breathing. It also takes on Fitbit's new design ethos with interchangeable straps, solid build...

JBL Charge 2 review

 

Great audio and device charging? This Bluetooth speaker is big on perks

Great sound quality ; Ample battery life ; Charges devices ; Speakerphone capability

Bulky ; Slow to connect

With bonus features like device charging and speakerphone, the relatively compact JBL Charge 2 impresses as one of the best Bluetooth speakers we've come across.

Fitbit Charge 2 review: The best £100 fitness wearable

 

Heart-rate monitoring and five-day battery life in a top-notch package — and the price is very reasonable, too

5-day battery life ; Comfy to wear ; Easy to use

No built-in GPS ; No ANT+ support

The Fitbit Charge 2 gets a lot right. You want a simple, hassle-free and long-lasting wearable? Then the Charge 2 ticks all the boxes. The lack of in-built GPS and compatibility with external ANT+ sensors might push some people towards pricier rivals...

Fitbit Charge 2 Review: In Depth

 

Fitbit Charge 2 Review: We test Fitbit's new fitness tracker, the Fitbit Charge 2, which updates the original Charge with a bigger screen and new features.

Large display ; Heart rate sensor ; Feature-packed app

Accuracy issues ; Mocks your lazy ways

The Charge 2 is, like a lot of fitness trackers, a perfectly decent way of casually monitoring your daily activities. That good-sized display means you can quickly and easily check out your vitals without having to pull out your mobile, while the...

Fitbit Charge 2 review

 

Lots of things track steps now. Tons of trackers and watches -- and even phones -- do a good enough job.

Swappable bands. A multi-line OLED display that can show time and fitness data. Always-on heart rate. A great companion app. Affordable price. Five-day battery life.

Not water-resistant for swims or showers. Lacks GPS. Phone notifications on the Charge 2 display are limited and hard to read.

If you don't need water resistance and GPS, the Fitbit Charge 2 is the best overall fitness tracker you can buy.

The Fitbit Charge 2 replaces the popular Charge HR, with interchangeable straps, new sports features, and larger display.

Fitbit Charge 2 review: A great wearable with snazzy extras

 

The Fitbit Charge 2 nails the whole mid-range wearable thing with ease

A couple of minor bugbears aside, it’s hard to find fault with the Fitbit Charge 2. Okay, it’s slightly more expensive than the model it replaces, but the cosmetic and design changes more than make up for the £10 price hike. And yes, it doesn’t have...

Fitbit Charge 2 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Fitbit Charge 2 is the number-one selling fitness tracker from Fitbit. It has a range of advanced fitness-monitoring features, including a new Cardio Fitness Level function. So what else can this fitness tracker do, and does it do it accurately? We...
