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 review


Great for motivation, even if it's hardly the most scientific device

Comfortable to wear ; Stylish, discreet look ; Solid, "fun" fitness tracking

The heart-rate monitor adds little ; Looking for rigorous accuracy? Look elsewhere ; Expensive for what you get

This is a weird one. It fails as tech on certain levels, yet does genuinely motivate and works as a lifestyle product. We love it, anyway…

Fitbit Charge HR review: the best fitness tracker yet?


With a heart rate monitor, screen and in-depth app, is this the fitness tracker you've been waiting for?

Comfortable and well made ; Excellent app and ecosystem ; That bit better than the rest

Inaccurate HR tracking ; Odd heavier exercise tracking ; Quite expensive

Fitbit Charge HR review: Great for gym goers


Fitbit has an entire family of activity trackers, from the simple Fitbit Zip which counts steps, distance and calories burned, to the Fitbit Flex which adds active minutes and sleep monitoring. The Charge HR might be more functional in build than...

Great platform, easy-to-use app, OLED display with instant data access, good accuracy, real-time heart-rate monitoring is fantastic, comfortable, secure, exercise mode great for gym users

Basic and temperamental sleep tracking, no GPS, only 1ATM water resistant, requires weekly charging unlike some competitors, design is discreet but still chunky

The Charge HR might be more functional in build than desirable like the Swiss Made Withings Activité, but as a fitness tracker Fitbit is far more detailed and excels in almost every department.

Fitbit Charge HR review


The Fitbit Charge HR is an enhanced version of the Fitbit Charge activity tracker wristband, that adds continuous heart-rate monitoring alongside the many other display-based stats.

The Fitbit Charge HR activity tracker wristband offers a lot of real-time fitness stats right there on your wrist, which is an advantage over the rival Jawbone Up24 that doesn’t have a display or the altimeter and heart-rate trackers of the Charge HR....

Fitbit Charge HR review


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 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 vs Microsoft Band comparison


With built-in GPS, a UV sensor, skin temperature and perspiration sensors, and a broad set of smartwatch-style notifications, the Microsoft Band promises a lot of cool features. The Microsoft Band can help with productivity by displaying email,...

It's difficult to be entirely prescriptive and fair at this point. Suffice to say that the Microsoft Band is the more powerful and full featured device, but it will likely cost more (and we don't yet know whether it will make it to the UK). This is a...
