Fitbit Charge 2 review: The best all-around activity tracker, despite heated competition

Fitbit Charge 2 review: The best all-around activity tracker, despite heated competition

When I reviewed the Fitbit Blaze a few months ago, one of my main complaints was its bulky design and the identity crisis over what it actually is: a smartwatch, a sports watch, a fitness tracker, or all of the above to a certain extent. That was never a question with the company's best selling tracker, the Charge HR. From the first look, you knew it was an activity tracker first and foremost, and anything else that it could do was just a bonus feature.

Now the Charge 2 is here to carry the torch. It's an all-around better Charge HR with several significant improvements that nearly put it on the same level as the higher priced Blaze.

The Fitbit Charge 2 is already available and the Flex 2 isn't that far behind, but if you don't want to pay for a new activity tracker and you don't mind getting a refurb unit then you might be interested in Woot's deal today.

5 Fitbit models are up on sale on the site in various colors and band sizes. They're refurbished units, so you only get the charger and the tracker in a bag, no original box or manual or USB syncing plug. But that shouldn't be a problem because setup and sync work with your Android phone.

Fitbit Announces A Wave Of New Fitness Trackers: The Charge, Charge HR, And Surge

Fitbit Announces A Wave Of New Fitness Trackers: The Charge, Charge HR, And Surge

After reports of skin rashes pushed Fitbit to recall its Force activity tracker at the beginning of this year, the company is now ready to bring the product's replacement to market. It's called the Charge, and it's joined by two other fitness bracelets packing more features and a higher cost.

The Charge comes with largely the same look and capabilities as the Force it replaces, providing the ability to track steps, follow sleep patterns, count floors climbed, see calories burned, and know who's calling. That's not to say that things are entirely the same. The Charge can track sleep automatically, which is a significant improvement over initiating the process manually (assuming it's reliable).
