    Apart from the mediocore battery on the HR variant, this is an excellent activty tracker. Fairly accurate too based on how my bondy composition has changed over the past 3 months.

    When it works, it's really good. Heart rate measurement is true to reality.
    Unfortunately, the quality is really bad. My first died within a year. Got a new one from the Web Hall without any problems (warranty).
    The other one sometimes had big problems sinking. The sinking died just after one year. Only the clock was synced to the end.
    In addition, the plastic loosens on the actual watch. Have glued it a couple of times.

    If the quality gets better, I'd like to buy one again. Liked it when it actually worked. Otherwise, the score would be a one.

    Inside my third and everyone has begun to have problems with the bracelet within a year. The latest has not been synced for a few months back.
    Today's step has mysteriously disappeared and it now shows 0 steps
    Not recommended considering all the problems it has.

    Now my 3rd has given up. The battery lives its own life. 1-3 days depend on how much you are moving.

    Has also had a problem with starving rubber as well as a dead person.

    Otherwise, the features are approved.

    Update 28 / 11- 16: After the band had a year so I have got 4! pcs new replacement units. The bracelet swell up after a few months of use every damn time & then I'm not ohållsam with the bracelet in any way. Otherwise I have not had any problems at all but I will take away everything I've written and add a new line because it is not worth so much fuss although Fitbits support issues new units each time the old "swell up".

    The pulse measurement and the measurement of sleep live a little life of its own and I drive 2 hours gym or run of workouts you can rate monitor to give up and show later that I basically died by displaying "nail case". Steps are also not correct days I have been at home and lounged me so I have obviously gone seven stairs though I only touched me in the apartment .. these are the same values ​​I have and have had on all 4 units I had, so it is not likely to be something "Monday as".

    Experiencing that it measures steps, sleep and heart rate good. I also use the alarm clock (a fixed time) and it is good with a silent vibrating wake so as not to disturb the rest of the family.
    Big plus to vibrate when it rings!

    Less to the device itself loose from the strap after 8 months but it was no problem to change.

    Affordable, now that it is available for 1000 kr.

    Have carried my days around for over half a year now. Chose carefully - wanted pulse measurement that measures through the bracelet. My training has clearly become more interesting.
    Simple, syncs well with my PC and my Samsung S5. Battery-disastrous 4-5 days. Measuring a little too few steps when I run, but right at the usual walk. Pulse measurement works well, however. Approximately 5-10% too low at high pulse and 5-10% for very low pulse. With this technology, one should not ask for better - for me it is good enough to be able to see trends. Vibrates for incoming text messages and phone calls. Think it's fine with all the auto-detection of physical activity and sleep. Just sleep, I think is really interesting and sometimes explains why you're tired - sometimes you think you actually sleep more than you do.
    I actually like the app and compete against several friends in the number of steps on the weekends.
    Remarkable cable for charging, but works fine, extra cable is of course to buy on ebay for a few bucks. Unfortunately, not waterproof. Easily Scratched display. The quality of the bracelet and the bracket around the display are perhaps half a year, then you go back to elgiganten and so they change it with a new one - known manufacturing defects but then they want the cable and dongle as well.
    In summary, plus the ease and minus for build quality.

    I have had the Fitbit Charge HR a few weeks now and I really like the watch very much, but your heart rate is lousy on the wrist and step count is o-exactly.

    I have had a Fitbit One in 6 months and have been very pleased with it so that's the one I especially compare with, it has not, however, pulse measurement, which is what attracts the Charge HR.

    Fitbit Charge HR:
    + Very good fit and easy. I would not accept a larger unit. Surprisingly smooth even when sleeping with it.
    + The user interface is good. Double-tap the clock (Tap Gesture) to illuminate the screen and then tap once to change the display. It works great and makes you never need to use the button.
    + Fitbit will have big plus in the edge because you can export the collected data very easily from their website. There is something Garmin eg are really bad at ...
    + The automatic measurement of sleep is very good.

    - Pulse measurement works less than I expected. As for any similar watches with pulse sensor at the bottom it does not work 100%, but in this case the heart rate measurement really bad when I have the watch on your wrist.
    When I set the clock on the upper arm or in another place where I get good measurements so the pulse measurement pretty good but certainly not exactly correct. I have compared Charge HR with my Garmin 220 with heart rate monitor, which I would say is as accurate as you can get without the real professionals gadgets and Charge HR is ca. 10% of normal high and low for 10% at high activity. So it is quite ok for normal movement (+ 10bpm) but quite bad for the exercise (-17bpm). Should you work out active and find it important to have precise heart rate indication is still pulse sensor band around the chest that comes, unfortunately.
    As I mentioned before, does not work at all pulse measurement at the wrist to me. The pulse jumps between 80 and 120 every minute of normal movement, when the pulse is actually at 55-60 when I measure with Garmin heart rate monitor.

    - Step The bill is quite wrong. The unit expects at least 10% too many steps. It was worse at the start but it got better after about a week. I have compared my Fitbit One, which measures the steps correctly, several times and Charge HR is a pleasure meter.
    - Height difference measurement (Floors) is that with the step count at least 10% too much, compared with the Fitbit One.
    - Battery life is not to cheer for but it has got better in the several software updates. With all the features and from fully charged, it takes about three days before the Fitbit warns of low battery and then you have half a day before the battery is completely drained. "Up to five days," indicating that Fitbit is enough with pulse measurement off. This pulls down the score considerably, I had expected four days at least. Nearly false advertising this. Fitbit One has 6 days of actual battery life, it is clearly unacceptable. Compared with its competitors, it is both better and worse. Apple has one day's battery life and activity Garmin watches have an actual battery life of about a week.

    Conclusion:
    The look is great, the clock is good and the functionality is right but the measurements and the battery life is poor.

    Of all the activity bracelet I tried (Jawbone UP, UP2, UP3, Fitbit, Misfit Shine, Withings), this is the absolute best for me. The only negative I can think of is that their app in iOS does not sync with the Apple Health app, however, there are third-party apps that can solve that piece if you are interested. The graphical part of the sleep-track force also leaves something to be desired compared to Jawbone. Before buying activity bracelet, think about what exactly you need / want to measure, what features you care about and which company handles it best. For me it is actions and real-time pulse that is important, which is the Fitbit number 1!

    Good battery life. Measures heart rate more often than, say, Samsung Gear Fit 2. It is very good at automatically detect the activities. I'm also pleasantly surprised by the clock function. I have not carried a watch in ages, but now that I have my Fitbit is a little easier to see what time it is.
    A minus is that it does not (yet?) Have alarms / reminders when you have been inactive for too long, as many similar products.

    I have needed my Fitbit Charge HR more or less daily basis for over a year.
    Periodically, I have even worn it during sleep.

    Fitbit works very well for everyday measurement of steps, activity and heart rate.
    You get a good insight into how much you move and registration of activities such as walking, cycling or a basketball match is added and displayed automatically without you must manually select that "you are now beginning an activity."

    Sleep monitoring is simple but adequate for a normal user. However, the light clock gives off (green pulse light and white light from the digital clock) is perceived as disturbing by anyone sharing the bed with.

    Extra fun is it if you are a group of friends who all have Fitbit.
    Then you can create contests and follow each other's development. It will be a good incentive to move more.

    Step meter is not perfect but it feels less important because the number of steps still just an indication of how much you move.

    The pulse measurement is good at rest and light exercise such as walking and cycling.
    Unfortunately, pulse measurement is not reliable when jogging, intervaltränar or otherwise reach higher pulse. Fitbit Charge HR is not a good tool for fitness training.

    During the year I had my Fitbit has released a lot of updates and new features. It's fun and feels secure that development is not stalled.

    As a gauge of your resting heart rate and an activity bracelet so, I recommend Fitbit Charge HR.
    Do you exercise a lot and use your heart rate as a tool in your training will not do Fitbit.

    I have after a year of use put my Fitbit shelved and instead bought a Garmin Fenix ​​3 HR with an ANT + heart rate chest strap.
    A more expensive option, but that is more reliable and with a much better web interface (Dashboard) and more training options than the Fitbit offers.

    + Cheap
    + Resting heart rate
    + Automatic registration activity
    + Simple and easy, and web interface
    + Small, light and easy activity bracelet
    + Additional fun with friends and challenges

    - Not rate measurement during more intense exercise
    - For easy and too few training options to be a really good training aids.

    The first one I bought cracked display on. Went to Kjell & Co and got a new one right away. It refuses to sync with my phone so I had to sync with my computer, which means that I can not see the real-time data in the phone.

    Convenient and discreet

    Bought this bracelet for a couple of weeks ago and am very satisfied. I have always found it uncomfortable to wear watch, but have resulted in it uninterruptedly since the purchase without being disturbed. Pulse measurement is accurate (and consistent with manual measurement) as long as the bracelet is in place. Trapp Measurement is as I understand based on the altitude difference and as long as I avoid the lift seems the part perfectly. Step Bill gives other written some stage during the night, but spread over a whole day, it will be mighty little wrong anyway and basically gives the same results as my iPhone shows.

    It had obviously been fun with built-in GPS, but then it would probably need to be larger and cost more.

    Enjoyed my Charge for almost a year, but after a few weeks of use was noticeable that construction quality was not something to cheer about.
    Whatever it is located above the display (can not possibly be any sort of real glass, rather plexiglass) as it absorbs deep scratches and nicks, the surface is very soft so the smallest blade of grass to access so scratched it.
    Now, even the rubber itself start dropping around the edges of the display you will probably try to glue back there.

    As regards the function of how it counts steps, stairs and recognizes automatically workout so I have nothing to complain about, works really well and the battery life, I'm very happy with, 3-5 days, depending on whether I sleep with it.

    Absolutely incredible lousy build quality, it runs freely in solution within a few months of use. You exchange a sweater with this on you risk tearing the rubber away, and then you get "fine" large air bubbles which look absolutely terrible.

    The pedometer counts about 1,000 steps every night when I sleep and I can not sleep, it counts twice as many steps as I walk in the day, and pulse meter counts out some sort of average over those last five minutes, you may never know the real pulse.

    For those two reasons, it is difficult to know what to wear to this thing.

    There is no one who answers questions on Fitbit's forum, not even the moderators.

    The battery lasts for days, raising the rating from one star to three.

    Have had this for 3 months and after firmware update to v102 then it practically useless. Great difficulty in sync, poor battery life and particularly absent a response from Fitbit in the 1000s of the complaints in sync, time etc.
    Fitbit has known the issues for months and nothing happens regard. new firmware. Fitbit standard response does not address the actual problems and they avoid consciously to suggest when or whether a correction will come.
    see https://community.fitbit.com/t5/Charge-HR/bd-p/chargeHR

    When there now also proves that the belt, when it is broken, can not be replaced as this product is dead and remains in the tray or go in the garbage.

    Spoke with a salesman from Fitbit who visited Media Markt. He said yes to anything that I would buy it. Looking received text in it (looking up at the ceiling) "Yes it is done." It can be anything, much better than the usual charge. Although I emphasized that the waterproof was important to me. Wakes up and goes to the bathroom and back (slept with the bracelet) is 483 steps, the house feels a lot less than that. A measured walk of 5.1 km was 7,6km! A pedometer at Clas Ohlson for the 199 is better.

    Are you looking for a pure activity bracelet with pulse function so I can recommend this.
    Proprietary USB cable, making it awkward to load, but it seems to be more substantial than for example a USB Micro.
    The building is ok, but not premium. Button and the display part feels a bit plasticky.
    The display is quite small and the contents poor, but it is enough for this product.
    Vibration is given for alarms and messages, which is very good!
    The bracelet feels good but the dirt sticks easily and especially tygdamm can be stuck right properly.
    The product is not wise water resistant is a mystery. It is after all an activity bracelet.
    It would be nice logging features to other träningsappar as eg Endomondo, now you have to use both Endomondo and Fitbits own.
    For daily heart rate and activity measurements make it their job and the format is flexible.

    I gave Charge HR to my wife who has been using for about three days. Everything seems to work as it should and we are satisfied now. All functions work according to specifications.

    However, I was forced to change the first specimen after chat with the Fitbit support. Probably BT part was broken which made it impossible to do the first SETUP. Changing the place of purchase (PC World) went completely without drama (as it should) and I had an e-mail copy from the Fitbit support where it became clear that the product had some form of defect and should be replaced.

    When the first copies were defective, I have to lower the rating slightly. But the top rating for the Fitbit support and Webhallen who handled the complaint very professional.

    Unfortunately it does not work at all with the most common apps (neither Runtastic, Edmondo or Runkeeper) despite the BLE. And since Fitbits own app does not measure when it comes to running, so do not work this product for me.

    Edit: Decreases the rating considerably. After having used the Fitbit Charge daily for more than 3 months and always felt that it does not measure any other form than once, and related forms of exercise properly I got the chance to test it at the same time as a professional heart rate monitor and it confirmed what I constantly imagined - Fitbit Charge is rubbish. It is constant at least 10bpm for accurate pulse and worst upward almost 40bpm and this regardless of whether you follow Fitbits quite awkward tips on how to wear it to get accurate readings. Do not you doing power walking or jogging, where it might work properly, so do not throw away your money on this.

    Bought a Charge HR for about 2 weeks ago because I'm a fat little thing and become motivated to train to see different kinds of numbers and charts of my successes and have used it on daily workout since.
    What I had hoped that I would get was quite okay heart rate monitor on your wrist with some extra features, was not expecting any super-accurate but after what all the reviews said it seemed the work out but with a bit low sometimes.
    Either I have strange wrists, a quantum heart that only exist at the pulse for about 125 bpm or so works Charge HR'n abysmal. I take a chance on the last.

    As the heart rate monitor, I feel that it constantly lose count when you start approaching 125-130bpm, Fitbit recommend that you place it a little farther up the arm during hard training but my experience makes absolutely no difference.
    Had not had any problems if only been about the spoken pulse lagged behind but when the statistics and the calculation regarding pulse and calorie burn is wrong to Charge'n only counts when you are at 100bpm but skip that 10-minute period you were at 150bpm you become entitled grumpy.

    At present, I see this as an extremely expensive pedometers. It is possible that it works better if you eg run but in other forms of exercise are the highest unreliable and flagged even in the user manual that rapid movements of the arms can interfere with the reading, there I wish I knew before I bought it.

    Other functions works very good though, sleep reading was an interesting detail that I appreciate even if it might not give me so much. The corresponding app and the website is very simple but in a good way, you can quickly and clearly the info you want and do you want to go into more depth then additional info readily available. A big plus is also the possibility to connect your Fitbit against MyFitnessPal for easy counting of kalorintag and, oddly enough, even Withings scales!

    + All functions that are not related to the heart rate measurement.
    + Pretty good design and simple interface.
    + Good web-interface and app.
    + Can be connected to eg MyFitnessPal for better and simpler calculation of the calorie intake.
    + Can be connected to the Withings scales.

    - Poor pulse reading!
    - For short bracelet even on large-model.

    My first activity bracelet so do not have much to compare with. It has good characteristics fundamentally, however, pulled the score down of these do not always work great. For example, the heart rate monitor hard to keep up when the heart rate increases / decreases mkt during the effort. This means that there will be a lag in the registration. Sometimes it is also a problem for the "find" pulse.

    I have also had the problem with Charge HR's altimeter, the sensor will record how many stairs you fell. If you read the forums, this is a widespread problem and it is unclear if no solution is in sight. I have been in contact with their support and to receive my replacement so I can not complain about the service.

    Summary: if you do not need a super accurate heart rate monitor and looking for an activity bracelet that has a little more functionality, this is an approved purchase.

    It is cruel! :) I had thought wait for new Jawbone UP3 because it seems more advanced (and accurate) in that it uses bio-impedance principle for measuring heart rate instead of an optical sensor Charge HR, but I could not keep me from buying Charge HR when came. And as for heart rate measurement as Charge HR has the advantage of measuring heart rate continuously, I do not think Jawbone UP3 do.

    The band fits comfortably, I have it in me around the clock (except if I should shower).

    Will update the review later, but now I give the grade 9th

    Have had my Charge HR now for a few days around the clock in principle and are really happy. Finally a true activity band and not just for the running and walking. Personally I run crossfit / core at the gym on a daily basis and so far it has been difficult to measure performance. Of course there are expensive heart rate monitors which to mass lullul on themselves but perhaps no one is wearing around the clock (?)

    However, I do not know how they measure the "Large" for you 190 and is trained so you may not have wrists as a stick, what do I know, but I have it on max second snap or I get blood peak.

    The bracelet has a small but good display where you can see the watch, heart rate, steps, distance, calories burned and guess stairs / floors you are gone. When you sync with your phone so it can show who is calling. Have you set goals to get the band vibrates when you reach your goal. You can also set that the band will wake you up with a sort of vibration. Could be nice if you are tired of the alarm clock.

    The pulse measurement works really well and you get a good overview of the day's activity and how you sleep. It measures your sleep automatically in a good way and you can see how you slept. You get a wifi dongle to your computer if you do not have a "smartphone" so you can sync your data when you return home. I have to test both and sync is quick and easy to set up. To measure your daily activities, you do not do something, it measures on steps, distance, heart rate, activity and rest. When you are training, you can tell the band what type of training you will be doing and for how long. Are you going out and walk or run, you can run with GPS or you will run out in the gym so you can choose training that such crossfit. The band then measure your performance in a more detailed logging of your performance as cardio, peak, fat burn, spared the heat rate and calories burned.

    You can easily set goals and make your workouts more fun and are you really sure that's a really good log book where you can manually log what you eat and how much water you are drinking. The program is also designed to take all the data in the calculation so you will also know how much you should drink, how much you should move you to reach your goals etc etc ..

    Do Fitbit has done well with his package but a fun, easy and innovative solution that suits both everyday exerciser and professional. I get the tape 8/10 because I would think that such activity bands shall be watertight and that the bracelet is too small to be big.
