Note: While you can find the Fitbit on Amazon it’s always a good idea to check eBay to see if you can find a better deal. If the Fitbit Charge HR is more than you want to pay then I recommend you check out some of the cheaper copies available at my new Gift Store.

it was my birthday on the weekend and I got the best gift ever. I dropped a couple of hints leading up to my birthday and so I was really hoping the hints would take fruit. When I opened my birthday and saw my Fitbit Tracker I was absolutely thrilled. There are quite a few Fitbit Trackers available and I was lucky enough to get the Fitbit Charge HR which I’m reviewing for this post. You can see a collection of all the Fitbits available on this page.

Fitbit Charge HR Review

Fitbit Charge HR review

You can see me wearing my Fitbit Charge HR in the image on the left. Normally you don’t see the digital display unless you give the Fitbit a tap or when you bring your wrist up and twist it. I found that to be pretty cool.

Fitbit Charge HR Features

The Fitbit can track so many activities. I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s best feature is that it can track so many aspects of my daily activities. This includes steps, distance, floors climbed, calories burned, total amount of minutes I’ve been active as well as telling the time! If I was to go for a run it would also display run time, pace and distance travelled.

I actually went for a walk/jog/run and my Fitbit app not only recorded distance, time and pace it also used the GPS feature of my iPhone to map out my complete exercise route.

My Fitbit Charge HR also monitors my sleep including stats such as hours slept, times awakened and my sleep quality. It’s even got a silent vibrating alarm so that I don’t have to worry about waking up the missus.  :wishful:

As far as I’m concerned though I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s most important feature is that it continually monitors my heart rate. It doesn’t matter if I’m asleep, just sitting in front of the TV or working out, the Fitbit tracker gives me continuous updates of my heart rate.

The Fitbit is the perfect gift for almost anybody who wants to get fit. It helps you to get motivated and to stay motivated. With the Fitbit app you can also compete with friends who also have the Fitbit tracker. I know I love mine and as you can see from other Fitbit Charge HR owners, they love theirs as well
