Wear and Care
Our products are meant to be worn all day and night, so it’s important to follow a few simple guidelines as you wear and care for your device. To keep your band clean and your skin happy follow the following steps:

  • Keep it clean: Regularly clean your band and wrist - especially after working out, sweating, or exposing your skin to substances like soaps and lotions, which can get trapped beneath the band
  • Keep it dry: If your band gets wet - like after sweating or showering - rinse and dry it thoroughly before putting it back on your wrist
  • Give your wrist a rest: Prolonged rubbing and pressure may irritate the skin, so give your wrist a break by removing the band for an hour after extended wear
  • Make sure your band isn’t too tight: Wear the band loosely enough that it can move back and forth on your wrist

Before my Fitbit crashed and burned I'd had it since May 2015 (7 months).

For the majority of the time it worked like a dream. Heart rate was pretty spot on - steps was very good, (I counted with it a lot in my head!) and it inspired me to lose a good half stone cause I was always trying to get it to tell me I'd met my goal. Sleep tracker was a bit off, but you expect that, lying still can be deceptively like sleeping! My wrist took a bit of time to get used to it, but no chafing or soreness like others reported, though it's height off my wrist was a bit big and so using it everyday I tended to knock it a bit, and it's imprint on my face in the morning was delightful.

So everything was great... until last week. It's just not durable enough. The rubber around the edges started loosening up so they looked saggy, not too much of an issue until the plastic unit underneath cracked just under the screen, that's fine, it still worked, superglue helped. But then, it cracked along the side and decided to stop syncing. This meant it lost time between charges, as it wouldn't sync to update the time, and an alarm set to go off at 7am now went off, on my bedside cabinet at 3am! Every bloody weekday! Until of course I removed the housing and removed the battery, it was dead anyway!

So, for 24 hour usage which it states it is good for, it's rather bad, £90 spent for 7 months use is just not good enough. 30 day guarantee is terrible and nobody wants to know about it now. Want another tracker, but it won't be a Fitbit!

EDIT: August 2016 - second Fitbit cause I'm a glutton for punishment, 8 7 months later, again, it's dead! Never again, moving to Garmin.

So it has been a year and a half . The first Fitbit broke (strap) just within a year or the warranty and after contacting Amazon , I was sent a replacement quickly and with great customer service. However and alas, the second one has decided to just give up the ghost. It won't charge and yes I have tried other charging cables in different plugs. And so I have contacted Amazon and I am awaiting their see if their customer service is as good as the last time. Moral of the story is,,, I wouldn't buy this model again. I know there is a new model out but this one is still being sold. I would give it a miss.

I have been using this product for four weeks and have waited that long to give it a good run before posting a review.

Is the unit totally accurate in what it records - No!
When you consider that units that record the same data for top athletes run on mains electricity and need a small truck to move and this units total electronics is about the size of two fruit pastilles how could it be? It records roughly the correct data and for most people (me included) this is enough to monitor what I am doing and makes healthy decisions. Of the things it records:-

It does seem to show more steps than I am actually taking and I am not sure why. I believe it bases "steps" on heart rate but it should be able to tell you are not walking if you are in the same place (sitting down). But noting how many steps it says I am taking against how many I do take it is easy to get a fairly accurate figure deducting one from the other.

It does not always record going up stairs and sometimes states that I have gone up stairs when I have not. The unit works on air pressure measurement and requires a 10 foot height change to register as a stair. I live in a 1930's property which has three floors and would imagine that there is 10 feet between floors. To solve the issue as I get to the top of a staircase I raise my arm with the unit on it above my head and the climb is recorded. On one day it recorded that I had gone up 14 stairs when I had gone up none. A check of the barograph showed the reason why as there was a fast change in pressure as a weather depression moved on.

I have found this to be spot-on and in agreement with other devices I have so no issues here.

Started off looking good. I was very impressed with the step counter and the heart rate counter as well as the associated apps which were very informative.. It was only after completing several walks with my wife who has a Jawbone UP24 that we noticed her step count was a lot lower than my own. In the meantime I had obtained a Microsoft Band so we decided to cross check the step count on the various devices i.e. Fitbit Charge HR, Microsoft Band, Jawbone UP24, our Omron pedometers (the last I have always found very accurate). I even did a manual count (try that one over a good distance!). I tried the various suggestions from the Fitbit help site, wearing on the other arm, selecting dominant and non-dominant arm, etc.. My conclusion was that the Fitbit Charge HR was often recording counts up to 35% over the other devices. The other devices were all giving similar counts to each other. With the Fitbit Charge HR counting so much higher, this was giving me the impression I was burning a lot more calories than I actually was. On the results I was getting I should have been losing weight fast but that was not the case. My Fitbit now lies in its box. I do appreciate other people probably get different results but this device was not for me.
