what is the guarentee period? 19 Jan 2014
As long as your keep your receipt safe you have 12 months from the date of purchase, they are also very good on feed & call back with info. there is a knack using this Flex, for charging once plugged in, just keep on tapping till you get a steady 1 dot impulse this will then go to a 5 steady impulse you are then fully charged. Happy Fitbit Flex, they are great. John (Yorkshire) any more info through Amazon please :-)
hi,does this product work outside? 28 Nov 2013
I have been using it since the end of July and really pleased with it. The dashboard is really easy to use and can be used via laptop or phone to keep you up to date. Really easy to link with map my walk app. Links to fitness pal app for the food data as this better than the fitbit data as it is American. It has helped me lose weight and definitely much fitter. I am doing a minimum of 10000 steps a day every day through general steps and lots of walking outside. Also good for counting steps in the gym as well as Calaries burned,and about 40 to 60 active minutes - probably 3 times more than I was doing before my fitbit. I wear it all the time record sleep and it has a good alarm on it.
How do you charge it? and how long does it take to charge? also how long does the battery go for without being charged? 31 Jan 2014
For charging it comes with a USB adapter. You take the module from the wristband plug it into the adapter and then plug the adapter into a standard USB charger (not supplied) or your PC. It takes about 3 hours to charge and I find it lasts for about 7 days though they only claim 5.
can you swim in it? 11 Jan 2014
When I asked customer services about wearing it in the shower, this was part of their email response: "Flex is the most water-resistant Fitbit device yet. It can be worn in the shower, sauna or steam room. Flex will hold up against sweat, splashes, rain, soapy water and hand washing. Flex can be worn swimming in pools and salt water, but is not designed to accurately track the distance you travel while you're in the water. If you're a scuba diver, you'll want to leave your Flex at home, as it's only water resistant to 10 meters."
has anyone compared this to anyother fitness tracker for accuracy? how it can tell from being on your wrist exercises such as the plank or leg raises? 15 Feb 2014
it only monitors wrist movement so i wouldn't have thought it would monitor leg movement only monitors movement on the reWrist
how secure is it on the wrist? I play a lot of sports that involve diving around on the ground and don't fancy it falling off or losing it in the mud. 2 Apr 2014
