What is the Fitbit Charge HR?

The Fitbit Charge HR is a fitness tracker that tracks your workouts, heart rate, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes and steps.

The Charge is water resistant so you could sweat in it and do your daily duties like wash your dishes and things of that sort. I suggest you take it off before you shower so you don’t take any chances of soaking it completely.

The battery life on the Fitbit Charge will last you for about 5 days before you have to give it a good charge. Pretty Good if you ask me!

Heart Rate MonitorFitbit- Charge

The Fitbit Charge HR is great because it has a built in heart rate monitor. You don’t have to wear the chest strap heart rate monitor that in time gets uncomfortable. You also don’t have to go out of your way to buy a monitor. You can track your heart rate right on your wrist.

The great thing about the heart rate monitor is that it gives you the stats you need to have a great effective workout and an accurate calorie burn and it does that all automatically.

Tracking Your Workouts


The Fitbit Charge has a Exercise Mode + SmartTrack feature that automatically recognizes your exercise to record all of your workouts and gives you your real time stats right on your wrist.

The Charge will track your steps and if you are running it will track your distance. It also tracks floors climbed and active minutes. All of your stats will be transferred wirelessly and automatically to your smartphone or your computer.

Tracking Your SleepFitbit- Charge

Some people like myself think they sleep well all through the night but with the sleep feature it showed me exactly how well I slept and how long I slept throughout the night.

With this feature you can set a silent, vibrating alarm which comes in handy.

Caller ID

The Fitbit Charge does have a caller ID Feature that allows you to see who’s calling when your on the run. You are not able to answer the call through your Fitbit but it at least gives you a heads-up on who’s calling you.

Do I Think The Fitbit Charge HR Is Worth Getting?

Personally the Fitbit Charge is a good fitness tracker but I’m a sucker for screen size. I feel you pay too much for such a tiny screen.

It will get all the basics covered fitness wise but I would pay more for a watch that is waterproof and has a little more features like, reviewing text and emails.

I also would prefer a watch that gives me a pace count and stuff of that sort.

If you don’t care about screen size then this watch will be great for you!

For a great watch that is one step above this watch, I personally recommend getting the Fitbit Surge. It will satisfy everything you expect to have in a Fitness Tracker.

I hope this review was of some help and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them below.
