Cheap construction

Loved it... until it fell apart! Cheaply constructed. I've talked to others who have had the same problem. Actually mine lasted longer ( less than a year ) than some of the others. I'll give it 2 stars only because it was nice before coming apart!




dont like the band

my fitbit was the snap on band it was always falling off and I lost it.




Go for the upgrade, NOT the old model

The Charge, Charge HR, and Flex units are old models that the company has abandoned. If you are perfectly fine with saving a few bucks for a product that the company has phased out due to obvious flaws, then by all means go for it. In doing so, you will help them get rid of outdated inventory. If, instead, however, you are willing to pay more for a product that poses less risk of these issues, cough up the extra bucks; you'll be happier. As a person who has had 2 Charge units, I can tell you that I liked my trackers, but they were not without problems. The first unit had a terrible issue with the rubber-like molded band peeling away from the unit. After addressing the problem with Gorilla Glue a couple of times to hold it together, I used tape when it looked like the band would split altogether. It still functioned, but looked terrible! To their credit, Fitbit replaced it with a new Charge (still the old model, of course). I was told that, as my first unit was beyond the warranty period, no warranty would apply to the replacement, which was fair. After a couple of months, the replacement unit developed charging issues, barely holding a charge for a full day, making it unreliable for me. I decided to upgrade to the Fitbit Blaze 4 months ago - so far, so good. The new Flex 2 and Charge 2 avoid the problems of their predecessors by not integrating the tracker with the band. If the band falls apart it can be replaced. Additionally, the Flex 2 is waterproof, so it can be worn while swimming. While I like my Blaze, I purchased the new Flex 2 to be able to track my aquatic exercise.









The band falls bubbles up and falls off!

I'm on my second Fit bit Charge in less then two years. The first time the button fell off so I could not toggle between options, the second time, the wrist band bubbled up and came off rendering it useless. I've tried gluing it but it keeps falling off.




FitBit is really great

A friend bought me a fitbit several months ago and it is great. Disappointing how little I do sleep though. But I do have trouble getting it to charge but my question is I just found out that my sister bought a a Alta Fitbit. I cannot connect with her to track our progress together. WHY?




not sweat proof

I wore this working out and i sweat heavy. The face of the watch had water drops on it and i believe sweat gets in from the charging port in the back. What's the use of it if sweat will kill it. Not worth the money if you work hard. Let it soak in rice overnight and cleared up the face but no longer operational.




Bogus Steps

I've noticed that it adds steps when I'm just moving my arm up and down. I could be laying down and move my arm and it adds steps. Not Good. Now I wonder how many steps did I really take? I also have a problem with it charging. Only holds a charge for a short period of time. I've only had it a little over a year. I would give this a negative 10





I bought this about a year ago it still works perfectly.




Disappointing life on this product

I purchased this in May 2015 for my wife. She loves the tracker when it works, but we have had a few issues. In December 2015, the button broke off. She insists that she was gentle with it and I tend to believe her. Fitbit did respond when I contacted them and sent her a refurbished tracker. That worked well until a few days ago. Now the Fitbit battery does not last more than 12 hours when it used to be 5 days. It has a one year warranty so I guess we should be happy to get a year out of it. Seems like it is not very durable though. According to the Fitbit rep I talked to, they advise not charging overnight, but only for 2 hours. I do not remember seeing that in any instructions when we first got it, but it might also be advice to follow to extend the life.
