Super features, but could be more sleek

from Alphr

The Fitbit Charge HR is possibly right in the sweet spot in terms of features, but in 2016, it’s lacking the comfort and style I’d look for in a fitness tracker. If the company brings out a follow-up, however, the smart money says it will be the fitness tracker to beat.

The Fitbit Charge HR is undoubtedly the pick of the litter from Fitbit. It takes the simple design and feature set from the Charge and throws active heart rate tracking into the mix.

The only fly in the ointment for the Charge HR is the simply superb Garmin Vivosmart HR – when it comes to bang for your buck, it’s hard to beat. However, if you’re already a Fitbit user looking to step up from the Fitbit Flex, or if you already have friends in the Fitbit ecosystem, the Charge HR is a good pick.

The Fitbit Charge HR is the most accurate fitness activity tracker that we have tested so far. Statistics and logging of data is pinpoint precise, in-app stats checking, sleep, water, and food consumption logging is easy.It also stokes your competitive nature through a feature called “Challenges” that are set against co-Fitbit owners to help you stay ahead of the pack. The rubber wristband is reasonably comfortable, and also manages to look good. Taking everything into consideration, the Fitbit Charge HR is for every fitness freak who doesn’t mind spending a few extra bucks to keep his fitness regime in order. While we really want to recommend the Fitbit Charge HR, the only factor which acts as an obstacle is the price. At Rs. 12,999, Fitbit might find few takers for the Charge HR. But, if you really want an accurate activity tracker, the Charge HR is one of the best wearables out there.

Easily a top contender in the fitness tracking space

The beauty of Fitbit is that you can treat it as a set it and forget it device, or you can push it to the limit with recording exercises, setting goals, following exercise plans, and social integration. Either way, there’s a lot you can get out of it. You can also ease into the features. By default, Fitbit does a good job to get you involved and thinking about living a healthier lifestyle.

Great for gym goers

from Pocket-lint

The Charge HR might be more functional in build than desirable like the Swiss Made Withings Activité, but as a fitness tracker Fitbit is far more detailed and excels in almost every department.

Automatic heart-rate monitoring is the Charge HR's most prominent feature and one that we will significantly miss after sending it back. Considering it can do this and still deliver near-week-long battery life is mighty impressive, even if having to recharge is a bit frustrating - but that's a small price to pay for real-time information and accessible data with or without the app running...

Automatic heart-rate monitoring is the Charge HR's most prominent feature and one that we will significantly miss after sending it back. Considering it can do this and still deliver near-week-long battery life is mighty impressive, even if having to recharge is a bit frustrating - but that's a small price to pay for real-time information and accessible data with or without the app running.

For gym goers not looking for a fully fledged GPS smartwatch, the Charge HR is definitely top of the pack. The exercise mode and heart-rate monitoring means it embraces indoor sessions, where its competitors seemingly ignore it, and while it isn't the best out there for dedicated runners or swimmers, it most definitely will fit into most people's lifestyles.

We weren't huge fans of how the Fitbit Flex looked and despite the Charge HR looking similar, it makes much better use of its footprint. More features, better accuracy, that at-a-glance OLED screen - for the £40 bump in price, it's clearly a no brainer.

Even though it's not gorgeous to look at, the Fitbit Charge HR certainly delivers a fitness-tracking experience a step ahead of the competition.

PhoneArena

Heart rate sensor offers superior workout accuracy

from PhoneArena

No doubt, the only thing notably different here is the heart rate sensor tacked onto the Fitbit Charge HR, as its name so happens to imply. With that addition, it receives a higher price point of $149.95, which is a $20 premium over the standard Fitbit Charge model. To that effect, we find the price point to be more than justified – making it a better option to pick up over its sibling. Workouts are more accurately monitored because the heart rate sensor is actively on to provide users with informative data, which in turn, delivers real numbers based on actual physical data obtained by the unit....

Workouts are more accurately monitored because the heart rate sensor is actively on to provide users with informative data, which in turn, delivers real numbers based on actual physical data obtained by the unit.

In contrast, the Fitbit Charge is only able to estimate things. Fitness buffs will no doubt appreciate the inclusion of the heart rate sensor, but the compromise in having it is its lower battery life. Sure, it might not be as feature rich or stylish as some other wearable trackers, but nevertheless, when it comes to tracking fitness, it can’t be beat due to the information it obtains and how it presents the data in a meaningful manner in its app.

The Fitbit Charge HR activity tracker wristband offers a lot of real-time fitness stats right there on your wrist, which is an advantage over the rival Jawbone Up24 that doesn’t have a display or the altimeter and heart-rate trackers of the Charge HR. The Charge HR is only £20 more than the Fitbit Charge, and offers both continuous heart-rate monitoring for the more active user and a better-designed strap and buckle. As such we think the Charge HR is a compelling option to its less expensive sibling – and a minimalist (and cheaper) alternative to its bigger brother, the Fitbit Surge.

The Telegraph

Helps you accurately assess your fitness

from The Telegraph

The Charge HR falls somewhere between running watches and simple pedometers: it tracks your activity and gives you feedback on your performance thanks to the heart rate sensor. It’s a powerful training tool for a good price, and certainly makes the original Charge redundant.
