Fitbit Charge HR Review

This innovative fitness tracker offers various functions that were previously unavailable on the market. It can be connected with almost any smartphone, tablet or computer automatically and the process is executed by Bluetooth 4.0 technology. When it comes to water resistance, it is not entirely waterproof and you shouldn’t try to swim to shower with the tracker on. However feel to go running in the rain. Fitbit HR also measures your heart rate, which is a great function not so common on the market. It even goes to sleep automatically and wakes up with a silent alarm.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Fitbit HR can track your heart rate during your sleep and during your training sessions.
  • It is compatible with almost any electronic gadget you have in your home.
  • The battery life of this fitness tracker is amazing and the battery itself can last up to five days.
  • The overall support is very good, with applications that even offer motivation and a lot of third-party apps that you can connect to.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • A customer has reported that the Fitbit HR was serving him well for a couple months until it started falling apart for no reason.
  • It is very expensive.


Fitbit HR is a very good device for people who have just started running and for people who want to have a clear vision of how much calories they burned and, how much they should sleep, etc. It is also very easy on your hand. There are various fits to try and if you manage to get the right one for your arm, you probably won't even feel the tracker after a while. The battery life is awesome but you should still charge it often. This tracker combines a lot of functions into one.
