    Update: The band started to come loose already after about 6 months of daily use. Has currently, 9 months after purchase broken. The plastic bracket on the bracelet that is attached to the watch's metal hook has come off completely and has bought a new strap.

    Update: After 2 months of daily use, I now have access to a deeper analysis of sleep, where you can see how long / how many times I have woken up and been awake, REM sleep, light sleep and deep sleep. Shows the number of minutes per pattern per night and% of total, 30 day average and average for your gender in your age group.

    Update: After 1 month of daily use, even sleeping with the tape, the screen starts to get some scratches.

    Used UP24 for 3 years. So when my 6th band broke, I chose to change completely.

    Appearance:
    This is my first Fitbit band. Has nothing else to compare with of the same brand.
    The positive thing about Charge 2 is that it sits really nicely on the wrist. Is not in the way of long-sleeved sweaters or jackets, can easily be pulled on and off clothes without the strap being worn.
    Like the design and that it feels modern.

    battery life:
    I have measured the battery life to 6-7 days. Then I only sync manually, ie the bluetooth connection I turn on myself in the mobile when it is time to transfer information. Sinks about 2-3 times daily.

    Pedometer:
    The pedometer is actually quite accurate when I'm out and about. However, if I lie in bed and hold my mobile phone or turn on myself, the band may realize that I am taking steps. Even standing still and making certain movements with your arm can make the band count a few steps.

    Pulse:
    Like that it measures the heart rate. Is continuous and even. The only time I take off the band is when I shower, as the band is not waterproof.

    Screen:
    It should be possible to turn on the screen when you turn the wrist towards yourself, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not, which means that you have to press the screen manually on the button on one side. It should also be possible to tap the screen to scroll deeper in the menus. Because it is not a pressure-sensitive screen, the knocks are quite hard. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. For me, it will be easier to scroll through the physical button instead.
    The screen quickly accumulates dust and fingerprints. However, is easy to clean.
    I have now realized that it is a matter of raising the wrist upwards instead of turning it, which causes the screen to start.

    app:
    I personally can think that the app (iPhone) is quite messy. It is possible to get a good overall picture, but the information is presented in the wrong way for me, so that I think it will be easy to compare average steps per day, week, month, etc. You could have restructured and made it a little easier.

    Sleep:
    Fitbit Charge 2 starts automatically when it comes to analyzing your sleep. That is, there is no physical way to change the band from counting steps to analyzing sleep. Unfortunately, this means that the band may start to analyze sleep if you e.g. lying in bed for an hour reading a book. For my part, who likes to lie in bed for a while both evening and morning, the band starts to analyze too early and does not feel when I wake up. So it will not be as accurate an analysis as you would, but more work for me who will try to edit the sleep afterwards in the app and remember when I think I went to bed and woke up.
    Actually, the only way to avoid the automatic analysis of sleep is to go into the app before you go to bed and start "Begin sleep now" and when you wake up go in again and click on "I'm awake". But this does not help me and others who lie in bed an hour or so before to relax, as the analysis has automatically already begun. This despite the fact that during repeated rounds I manually pressed the button on the side of the band, as I thought this would make the band understand that I was awake. But it does not seem to work that way.
    Then imagine sitting still on an airplane for eg number of hours. Learn to be the same.
    Unfortunately, this is the big negative with the band. Why manufacturers choose to remove a manual function directly on the belt that tells when you go to bed and when you wake up is a shame.

    If I weigh all the factors together, it is still a band that gets approved.

    Have had mine for 2 years. Everything works as it should. My belt has had no problem, looks as good as new. The app is absolutely top and clear and it is the same around the clock😀 Deserves 5 star.

    And to those who are considering buying such a watch and seeing worse reviews, Fitbit has probably fixed them.

    Have given this as a gift for three pieces and the strap has fallen off over 3 times to each of them and had to spend a lot of time complaining and spending time with the sellers. Is not recommended.

    Today, after almost two years of use, the battery / clock has eclipsed. As others wrote, the bracelet is of really poor quality and I have gone through 3 more than just my time with it.

    I like to have an activity bracelet but will probably choose another manufacturer this time.

    After about 2 years of use, I can say that the product is really good (measuring heart rate exactly when I synced to professional heart rate monitor) and pedometer works well, but what pulls down the grade is the poor quality of the bracelets. I've changed 3 times now. The construction is very weak at the fortress as it is only a brittle piece of plastic that holds the belt in place.

    Have had this bracelet for about a year now and it really has everything I want in an activity band and I'm delighted with features, interfaces and battery life. What draws down the rating is the completely hopeless sync via Bluetooth. Every second training session loses that sync and on and off, I need to go in and sync manually so that the automatic sinking will start. It starts to get really tired and it takes on the good and the experience with the product. Now I'm looking at a new product. Unfortunately, there will not be a bite.

    good battery time about once a week i charge, will be reminded by mail. Have me on 24x7 to measure sleep, even coupled it with my wifi wave from Withings to see how calorie consumption is connected to the weight.
    Please note that I would like a schedule that you can not notify. Just take on / off may come in later updates, where they do not often arrive at about 2 a year.
    by the way no problem, the lady has a bracelet, but not on my. have also bought other colored bracelets from Wish costing $ 50 and are really good.

    Update:
    Ang Blue is this completely useless, has tried several different phones like Nokia 8 and Nexus 6 as it does not support them, because it's blue then, when you do not sync data, do it with a toad I have at home.

    Sometimes I get 180 pulse when I walk (and no, I do not have any rhythm disturbances). In addition, for highly calculated calories during walking, more than all online formulas and other apps show, regardless of whether the heart rate monitor is on or off, regardless of whether GPS is on the mobile device.

    Despite this, the watch has motivated me, lost weight, etc. But I think it does its job well, I expected more.

    Good features and nice design but .....

    What useless durability! The bracelets are so sensitive and break apart time after time. For the first time, I managed to get new on the warranty but after that 2 have broken. This within 18 months.
    I usually use it and do not wear it during training such as football and the like. Now I have also stopped sleeping with it when not turning when turning and turning.

    Not recommended!

    Funkat very good on my Huawei Honor 8. But when I bought a Charge 2 to give away a gift to someone who has a Huawei Honor 8 Lite and finds that the model does not work with Charge 2, one gets a little disappointed.

    + Totally okay battery life
    + Can export the information to Excell via the website

    - Using the clock function where it is activated by arm movement means that you can expect to wake both you and your partner at night because the brightness illuminates the entire room as you turn into sleep.
    - After a few weeks, the silicone bracelet began to release from the bracket, and three months later unleashed it completely. New costs hundreds of hundreds.

    Bought one in a Christmas flap that was broken from the factory, to get the replacement of fitbit you have to pay the freight with packages that can be tracked. And you can not get that cost so suddenly the product costs 50% more. So it is returned on an open purchase.

    Will not buy any more product from a company with such poor quality control and support.

    This was my fourth and last fitbit product. Everyone is suffering from the same problem. The bracelets rise and release from the device. This lasted about as long as the rest, about 6 months. Really under all criticism. Thought this generation of products would be better. But turned out to suffer from just the same problem as before. Lucky you bought from a good store so you could get it right now and buy something else without having to hand in a lot of money with a few times to get the money back.

    Works very well!

    Plus:
    - Small and sits very well on the arm.
    - Looks good
    - The app is very user-friendly
    - Easy to use

    Minus:
    - Had been ok with a built-in GPS
    - Measurement of distances may be inaccurate when you do not connect to the mobile's GPS. (Got a few extra kilometers after a race compared to the second polar sports bell)

    It's incredibly good with this product. For the most part, it delivers as expected. But I would like to point out a simple but very important shortcoming. The plastic link itself is of such poor quality that it's actually not a question whether it will be worn out, but simply when. A basically fantastic good product is delivered with a link of the very poorest quality. Several at my job have different versions of Fitbit, but everyone finds that the link is in resolution. It's simply untenable after Fitbit has delivered products for several years and does not fix it. I think one finds a better plastic link by searching for a random third party link at the cheapest price on Ebay. In summary, the Fitbit device itself is imaginatively good, but the experience is spoiled by the unthinkable dissolution of the plastic loop.

    Is on my other Fitbit charge now. I'm so pleased that it rarely hurts and gives me the information I want.

    The disadvantage is that it is difficult to read off in daylight. Had also preferred a color display.

    Then the bracelet is of poor quality as many others also mentioned. Has already changed the bracelet after warranty after six months. Now it's about to start releasing after another three months.

    In-depth analysis of sleep has worked well but not a hundred. Now it has been 4 days when I got back my old limited sleep analysis. There is no opportunity to update yourself, but have to wait for it to jump back.

    Recommended anyway

    My first fitness watch, however, I commuted between this and Apple Watch (Gen 2), but priority battery time when it became Fitbit Charge 2 (-pending on aWatch Gen 3).

    benefits
    + Good battery life for at least 5 days (nevertheless, always charge the batteries after 2-3 days).
    + Look good even when the sun is on, bright light on the screen.
    + Completely OK fitbit app, where you control more of the clock than from the actual clock.
    + To easily see who is calling / SMS / Calendar (-Obs! Not with answer.)
    + Simple menus, what is needed appears on the screen. The rest is controlled via the fitbit app.
    + Synced GPS with one's mobile phone (-this good battery time on the clock.)

    drawbacks
    - It does not sync with iOS 10 Health (also said not to work with Android health programs), can be synced using another sync, which does a reasonable job of transferring to the iOS Health app.
    - Missing Swedish menus in the cloud, the phone app and the clock itself, all in English.
    - Sports swimming does not work, it is recommended NOT to be under water but can withstand rain.
    - May awake one's partner in bed with unconscious hand movement, so the daylight of the night is very strong !. (-to turn off atuo screen-on, or maybe future firmware update that has dim light on the screen with time-out night time?).
    - No built-in GPS (-other if it has been, did not have the same battery life it now has.)

    June 2017 update.
    http://www.njohan.se/arkiv/2097 You can see a picture of what happened after a warm month of June, the bracelet plastic below the screen has been pucked outwards. This was a hot night of about 25-30 ° C in the room and in the morning it had become a plastic ball. First thought of "advertising" but it's good to use super-glue on the bullet and "bula-ner-den" and now the bracelet is new and saved a 300kr on self-fix :-)

    Really disappointed! We received new HR 2 after leaving our HR on warranty a large number of times due to de-lamination between strap and bell and received again and again. Now after a few months my sambo's bracelet went off and my has started to loosen.

    As people write below, the features are amazing, sleep, exercise, step, HR.

    But what bad quality. By the end of the last century there was an abundant glue to various composites, and they can not fix a good glue, either conscious of forcing people to change or total incompetence. Glueed shoes with various strange plastics and rubber is nothing unusual, and the wear is slightly higher.

    As for battery time, it's no problem, charging every time I shower enough to keep it fully charged all the time ...

    I wore my wrist before the moto 360 second gene. A very good watch as I easily give the same grade as charge 2 but for other reasons. To make a long story short, it's not the optimal time for training.

    Charge 2 is a good option as it automatically detects what activity you are in. Football like basketball, running and walking. It records your sleep during the night and gives you an overview of different stages like Rapid eye movement, deep and light sleep.

    All this is what you see on the fitbit app where you set everything as weight length and all these basic settings that you usually get through.
    There is a nice community, challenges with or without friends, who have a fitbit device and more.

    Animal incremental meter

    Works well to measure steps and pulse during today's course.

    Pulse measurement often breaks off at higher pulse rate. Does not get it over 140 in heavy exercise eg football / hockey. Then it's just - on the display.
    Checking max pulse is not to be considered.

    Has no Smart Alarm. Do not wake you after, for example, 8 hours sleep which I thought when I bought it.

    Can recommend it to you who want to keep track of your steps and rest and do not exercise so much. Those who exercise more and want a reliable measurement should probably look for another clock

    summed up:
    Smooth yet solid. Relatively a lot features. Worse screen.

    Good:
    + Has the most interesting features (-GPS)
    + A structure teaches hold (one can also change the bracelet)
    + Very good app and part of the "Fitbit product family" (including scales, training videos, training programs and other things)
    + Have the screen
    + Smooth Size
    + Decent battery life (up to 5 days),
    + Water resistant (but not water)

    Badly:
    - The screen is pretty bad, difficult to read out and touch sensitivity is rejected
    - No GPS (probably gives flexibility and battery life)
    - not water (but protected)
    - Sleep analysis seems not as good as for example Microsoft's counterpart

    Other:
    Coming from a Microsoft Tape 1 that had many times better screen (clarity and "pekbarhet"), built-in GPS but missing stair counter (no altimeter) and had disastrously poor durability of the structure (ripped out 2 pieces of 2 years). Charge 2 is an inferior and cheaper product than Microsoft's bands but construction has the potential to keep better. I like it so far, sharp! Updates about the change.

    Can not say anything other than that I'm sick impressed with this bracelet. I had the old version and it worked absolutely great and I liked it a lot but here in version two, it feels like they've fixed everything you wanted from the original. The bracelet is better, now there is a display with clock, the quality is higher and above all, has both improved the charge (the original was pretty complicated to download) and the battery life has been extended.

    The daschboarden showing stats etc. has always been good but with the newer and improved features, it is not but that one will be impressed. It keeps very good track of your sleep, heart rate, etc. I do not even think about, but when you start to analyze the data it seems to be very well while will be extra interested in how to improve things, that is what is the great advantage of this bracelet, just to get curious on how to make such a move more and feel better. Just such a function that you can connect your wireless wave (yes, I have one) with the data from the gadget to Fitbit's dashboard is incredibly good.

    Have also begun to use the GPS feature on your mobile phone and the app so I can see how I have walked and how long it took, etc. Does it work so well so I uninstalled Runkeeper.

    I use the bracelet mainly to measure my steps which it does very well, but with all the associated features and the app starts to add up the data (heart rate by weight) to provide this added value that actually gets me to talk me warm on the product. Can not really recommend it more, are reluctant to put the full pot but I can not.

    The only minus, and it is a small, is that sometimes when you move in bed at night to illuminate the display on the bracelet and it lights up the room some two seconds. You hear, is not it worse to hit the jackpot.

    Updated from a Fitbit Charge HR a few months ago and I must say I am impressed with the new features and the updated battery life that Fitbit has succeeded. I charge the device once a week, on Sundays and have me drive 24/7. Working out 4-5 times a week and allows the device each time "record" my workout. So battery life is probably what I'm most impressed.

    Waterproofness I have not dared to try, I do not even breathing exercises that the device offers. Pulse Tracker feature is much better than in my old Charge HR. Especially when the device measures your pulse during physical activity. Notifications works well, caller ID is easily visible even in sunlight.

    All in all I'm very pleased and highly recommend the product!

    Very good product, ergonomic and elegant, it really keeps track of all the activity of the user.

    really good product. had it for almost two weeks 24/7.

    obviously something for those who want to stay active. sitting nicely. must not sit adamantly to obtain the correct heart rate.

    Smart real. Clearly, this is the second generation activity tracker. you basically need never enter anything yourself. so smart it is.

    yttepytte minus for that battery life could have been one or two days longer.

    great recommendation from me.
