Fitness tracker very interesting even if it can be improved. Let’s go a little bit to talk about it a bit:
Aesthetically it is really very interesting as a product both in terms of shape and materials and colors. The Fitbit smartband is made of glass and stainless steel.
Regarding size and weight I can say that the band I chose is the one in black with a strap of size L. The band has a width of 21.6mm and a weight of about 149g so it is practically imperceptible during the day.
Speaking a little of the features and functionality of this device I can say that, first of all, integrates a very bright OLED display that allows us to see now and info in any light condition.
Fitbit Charge 2 is proof of sweat, rain, splashes, but can not be worn in the shower or while swimming (in theory), in practice we can take a shower (not very hot and, especially not using aggressive shampoo or shower gel) . The operating temperature varies from -10 ° to 45 ° C and can be used up to a maximum altitude of 9.144 m.
It would certainly have been appreciated the features of the complete waterproofing up to 50m, type.
As for the battery I have to say that, unfortunately, the 5 days guaranteed may vary based on simple fatal software settings.
The first day of use in fact the battery fell immediately from 100 to 0, inexplicably.
After a bit of research I found that the cause of this is the Always On Sync that strongly recommend to disable, so only when we enter the app will synchronize [I remind you that Fitbit Charge 2 integrates a memory that can store all data ].
After the first day like this, making some changes to the setup I managed to get almost 3 days on one charge. IMPROVABLE ASPECT
Speaking of the sensors and features that it integrates I can say that surely the best sensor present is that of the heartbeat, as it turns out to be very precise and continuous, in fact we can have on the app a complete picture of everything.
The hardware I can say is well balanced by an excellent app that allows us to control many parameters such as heartbeat (H24), sleep, weight, activities, steps / calories / steps up, and nutrition.
The interface is very user friendly so it is very easy to understand and this allows us to learn very easily to familiarize ourselves and make us easily understand how to use it to the fullest.
Certainly negative side for iPhone owners is the lack of integration with the Health app (that is also Xiaomi with MiBand has it). There is an alternative, that is Sync Solver, available on the App Store for around € 3 to allow us to synchronize them every time we enter the Fitbit app. SyncSolver is able to integrate almost all the data, except the heartbeat.
Overall as a band I certainly liked it even if certainly improved, considering the price it costs.
