FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK

Posted by TeamDIG.com What Reviews Don't Tell You

 

"WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK AND THE FITBIT FLEX WIRELESS ACTIVITY BAND

  • Hello William, I have the fitbit surge but am saving for the $250.00 model top of the line because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does so much more. I did not research this well. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK one is fine for a beginner but I do a lot more and am so very active I need more stuff on my fitbit. The more expensive one is like a wrist watch you wear on your dominant hand, I wear my regular watch on my non dominant hand. Also, get FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK from Amazon and get the protective screen cover if you are going to get the best one. Print off the 30 page manual and do read it as it is a wealth of information. Use the website too. I am Lexilu1 and they call me at fitbit ""recovery runner"" because I walk a lot and clock in tons of steps for each week. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is a fun piece of fitness wear that is valuable to me and utilize the web site, record your food etc. I lost my 15lbs. from all of my activity and recording my foods. Carbs were my problem but not any more I just avoid them except if it is my Saturday cheat day. I have 10lbs. more to lose. I recently had a bad accident in my yard and have to have neck surgery and am very scared and upset by what I did. The dog saw a deer and pulled me down and I turned my head to the right and heard a horrible crunch, fell down on my front, a badly bruised face but did not break my nose that is why I turned my head and pain right away etc. It was not my dog's fault but I think it is from a horrible car accident I had 25 years ago and the dog pulling me down just did me a favor. The pain is the worst in my entire life so far. FYI everyone over 30 has some arthritis in their neck mine is the middle of the road. That should be interesting to see how much walking I can do while I recover. I see the Neurosurgeon next Friday. Oh, you win badges on line and they if you choose to get into a firbit group in your state or where ever in the world it is fun. You get to know the secrets of what other people do. It is interesting. I have 40,000 followers. No I am not on Facebook but nor do I talk to all those people, I am a curiosity. I have a fitbit lady I talk to in Scotland on e-mail. I am 45 years old. I hope all of this helps, good luck. Get the best one like I am going to do.
  • The major difference is that FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK item has a display screen so you can see the data rather than have to look at your mobile application.

 

"IS THERE ANY METAL ON THE FITBIT CHARGE THAT CAN TOUCH YOUR SKIN (ALLERGIC TO ALL METAL EXPECT TITANIUM)?

  • I don't have one yet (just ordered it, actually), but I've had issues with allergic reactions to metals in watches before, and one thing my doctor recommended was brushing a thin coat of clear nail polish over the metal, which should create just enough of a boundary to prevent a reaction. This was over a decade ago, but I seem to recall FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK working well enough. I've also noticed that there are little silicon o-rings available for purchase for the fitbit charge: their main purpose is to keep the clasp from coming undone, but several of the reviews commented that the silicon was a great barrier between the metal and their skin, because of allergic reactions for them, as well.
  • I have never had any problems with metal allergies until now. My children gave me the FitBit charger for Mother's day and I LOVE(D) IT. No problems until after about 5 weeks of wearing 24/7. I developed an allergic reaction in the area where the metal is on the wristband. I am so sad! To their credit, FitBit is issuing me a refund, but now I am not sure what to replace FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK with. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK was a fantastic motivator to get off the couch and MOVE!
  • The metal contacts for the charging cable are recessed quite considerably, which was the cause of the skin irritation that their last band had. The clasp on the band is metal, but even so, because of it's placement, skin contact is all but nonexistent.
  • I can't tell if what's on the clasp is metal or plastic, to be honest - one of my friends has taken to using a certain spray on her jewelry, though, so that might work if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK IS metal.
  • Hi Kelly, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has some metal but hidden and I am sensitive to metal too, but no problems yet. I also have a laytex allergy but Fitbit fixed that also.
  • Just a little bit on the clasp

 

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK TRACK HEART RATE AND CALORIES

THANKS

  • If you get the Charge HR or the Surge they monitor heart rate continuously. You have to go into the Fitbit app or web site to record your food. Gives you cool gauges to help you see how many calories you have burned and what is left to eat. By the gauge you can maintain weight (green) or if you are under in the orange you should burn fat.
  • The Charge HR monitors heart rate. Caloric tracking happens by assumptions based on your weight input and activity. I can calculate how much FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK appears you burn based on your walking. You can also input your food intake and get a good view of how much your caloric I/O.
  • Calories: yes heart rate: I don't think so. If you go to the Fitbit website, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will give you all the details. Then go back to Amazon to purchase BC it's less expensive there.
  • The charge works out calories based on activity levels and your personal profile but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK model does not have the heart rate sensor. You need the charge hr for that.
  • The Charge tracks calories, but you have to purchase the Charge HR in order to get the heart rate, too.
  • The Charge doesn't track your heart rate. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does track calories. The Charge HR does track heart rate.
  • Calories, yes. Heart rate, no. At least on FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK version. Fitbit also makes a Charge HR that does that.
  • Calories, yes. Hear trate, no. That would be the Charge HR.
  • Calories burned yes; heart rate no.

 

"MY WRIST MEASURES 6.5 INCHES. WOULD YOU RECOMMEND A SMALL OR LARGE SIZE?

  • My wrist measures 6.35 And FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK just fits. I can get my little finger in between which they say is what you are supposed to be able to do. I have the strap on the last two holes I don't think you can get FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK any tighter. Some times FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK still feels a bit tight but I've only had FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK a few days and I'm still getting use to it. You may want to go for larger especially if you think you'll gain any weight
  • Yes, my wrist is the same size and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK fits, so I would get the small. It's a bit difficult to get on, but I'm assuming FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will get easier as time goes on. I love it, but remember to take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off when you shower. It's okay if it's raining and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK gets a little wet, but the instructions say to keep FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK dry.
  • This maybe too late but I would suggest large, my experience was if the small is too small they don't adjust to a larger size but to a smaller , I had to a large and adjust down to my size , hope this help and not too late
  • My wrist is also 6.5 inches and I have the small Fitbit...a very good fit. I think the large would be way too big. Hope this is helpful.
  • I would suggest the large. My wrist is about the same and I had to return the small.

 

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK SHOW EVERYTHING ON THE DISPLAY OR DO WE HAVE TO USE THE PHONE

  • On the wrist band FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK shows steps, floors climbed, distance (miles), & calories burn. You can set one of the functions to display with tap & the rest by pressing a button on the side. I love it, but I kind of wish I would have sprung for the Charge HR with heart rate because the calorie burn FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK tracks is step based. So any thing you do upper body like weight lifting does not show up in the stats FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK tracks.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will show the date and time, steps taken that day, distance walked, calories burned, number of flights of stairs you have climbed that day, calories burned and next alarm you have set up on the display. If you want to track your weight, track your food eaten etc., you use either the phone app or an app on your computer. I use both because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is much easier track that and your goal on the computer.
  • You can choose what is displayed on the band but I think all of the main items (steps, floors climbed, distance and calories) are available to show on the band. I chose just to display watch, steps and floors climbed.
  • The fitbit will show time, steps, distance in miles , calories burned,and floors climbed on the unit. The rest of the information you look at on line or on your phone.

 

"DOES THE CLOCK STAY ON ALL TIME?

  • No. You tap FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK twice and the time will appear. I have mine configured to show the date and time but you can get FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to show just the time if you want. You can also check the time by pressing the button on the side. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is the first thing that shows. You press FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK again to show your step count, etc.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is normally off. there is a small button on the side that allows you to scroll through different results ( date/time -- distance -- calories -- floors ...) you can configure the values displayed and the format of the date/time output. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK only says on for a couple of seconds
  • No. You press a button in the side. You can also set your fitbit to show your priorities mine are steps so FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK shows that first and the clock is second. Is a really neat device. I forgot to say FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK also has an alarm and caller ID!
  • No FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK stays blank. You need to push the side button or tap FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK a couple of times. You can also set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up where something else is the first thing you see. I like the clock to be first and have a blank screen.
  • It's just like a regular watch so u just have to a) tap FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK or b) push the button on the side to see the time!

"MY WRIST MEASURES ABOUT 6 1/4 INCHES WHICH WOULD BE 6.25 INCHES. I DON'T WANT FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK TIGHT. SHOULD I GET THE LARGE? IS FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK ACCURATE IF IT'S LOOSE FITTING?

  • My wrist is 7"" around and I wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK a bit loose. I am about halfway through the adjustment strap. there are 3 adjustments left to make FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK smaller which would take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to about 6 and 1/4"" I might reccommend you try the smaller band instead. and yes FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is accurate if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK fits loose or FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK seems so. I have FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK loose enough to get 1 finger under the ban but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will not rotate around to the other side. Hope that helps.
  • My wrist measures 6 1/2 inches. I'm on the last (largest) setting of a small size Charge, and the fit is just right - not too loose or too tight. I think a large size would be too big. A medium would certainly give you a loose fit. A small would even fit, but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK depends on how loose you want it.
  • Yes, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is accurate if loose fitting. Fitbit recommends you have enough space for a finger to fit between your wrist and the wristband. I've been using mine for a couple of months now with enough space for 1-2 fingers and it's been tracking fine (even my sleep).
  • Hi Vicki, I would get the large that I have so ou can have room for adjustments.

 

"I PLAY TENNIS AND AM RIGHT HANDED, CAN I WEAR FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK ON MY RIGHT HAND? DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK RECORD STEPS ACCURATELY WHILE PLAYING TENNIS?

  • You can wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on either hand you just have to list on your settings dominant versus non dominant hand. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK records steps accurately, however, exaggerated hand movements can be counted as steps. For example, when my husband rides his motorcycle, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK records more steps for the vibration of the handlebars he holds while riding.
  • I'm not sure if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK would accurately record steps while playing tennis but while I am hiking FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does. I would think if you wore FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on your right hand FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK would record steps..I think there are attachments you can purchase that might be able to help calculate your steps better while playing tennis.
  • At the online ""dashboard"" there's a selection that lets you choose your dominant hand instead of the one you don't typically use.
  • I'm not sure. I know everyone you swing your arm FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will generate steps. I work at a deal using a keyboard and if generates steps.
  • In the settings on the app you can say whether FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is on your dominant or non dominant hand and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is more or less sensitive
  • I don't think it's accurate because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK appears to count based on the movement of the arm you wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on.

 

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK COME OFF EASILY?? AFRAID OF LOSING FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK IF FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK GETS CAUGHT ON CLOTHING.

  • I had a fitbit flex which came off super easy and I actually lost it. The charge band is double the size of the flex and I find the clasp is stronger I'm still going to order the bitbelt I think it's around $5 for two on amazon but I don't think I'll need FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK I'm much happier with the charge fit
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK takes a little pressure to snap in both snaps. With that being said I've not had any difficulty with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK coming loose. The instructions say to put FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on with a finger under the strap to keep FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK a little loose, not sure if that is why I've no problems or not. Hope that helps you.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does not come off easily. I clips in and you have to un-clip FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has not come off by itself yet and I have been using FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK for one month.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does not come off easily. I have never had FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK pop off by itself. I sleep with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK all the time and again FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK never comes off.
  • I've not had any issues at all with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK coming loose or getting caught in any situation.
  • No, will be secure if you hook correctly

 

"HOW DO YOU GET FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK NOT TO RECORD ""STEPS"" WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING THE PIANO?

  • You could always just take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off while playing. I suspect FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK may get caught on the end of the keys at times which would be obnoxious. lol If you're wearing FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on your non-dominant hand (left hand if your a righty etc...) there is a setting on the device in the app on your phone or on the computer that will change the sensitivity to your movements. I type all day long and do not have a problem with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK counting steps while I'm typing. Hope that helps!
  • What you should do is to activate the step dispaly shortly while playing the piano to see if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK indeed recording steps. I have noticed that while walking on a treadmill if I raise my arms and rest them on the bar, step counting is greatly reduced or stopped. You could remove the Fit while making music as well.
  • I'd just take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off. I found that I recorded steps when I was clapping at the end of a show at the theatre - or if I play my violin! So I just remove FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK now instead - which isn't a big deal.
  • I would suggest removing the item while playing.

 

"MY HUSBAND PURCHASED A FITBIT AT WALGREENS LAST X-MAS AND FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK DIDN'T HAVE ANY DIRECTIONS WITH IT. DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK COME WITH ANY DIRECTIONS?

  • It's tricky. You have to get the Fitbit app. Then you are given some clues as to how to set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up. If you're lucky, it'll work. I finally figured out how to charge it, so now I have a Fitbit that is ten minutes fast with no way to change the time. The support is lousy, responding with canned FAQ kind of replies. My advice: if you can, bring or send FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK back.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK took me about 30 min to finally get FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK all set up but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK was pretty easy to figure FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK out. I did have to go into the app to update my time zone and set my alarms but havent had any issues since
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has startup instructions. There is a guide you can access on the app or on fitbit.com once you set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up also. I actually used the guide on fitbit.com to learn about it.
  • I don't know. I synced FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK with my computer and downloaded the app on my phone right away so I didn't even look for them as my phone displayed all the information I needed...

 

"WHAT IF FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK DOESN' SYNC TO MY PHONE?

  • Is this a question because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK wont connect to your phone or questioning if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will if you buy it? You have to load the Fitbit App into your phone from the phone store. The Fitbit is available for Windows so will be available for the other OS too. Once Fitbit App is in your phone, for Windows, turn on your blue tooth--go to settings-- blue tooth--Charge (my Fitbit) shows paired--tap to connect FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK and all the Fitbit info transfers to your phone. I just did mine which I have not done in weeks. Be aware the Fitbits like Charge detach from your wrist very easy as they age. I would not buy FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK model again!
  • If you have Fitbit app installed correctly your phone should be recognized. Try turning phone completely off wait few minutes and turn back on hopefully FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK reboots and your phone will recognize the fitbit
  • Be sure the blue tooth in your phone is turned on and paired up.
  • Uhm I'm not sure about how to do that myself but I can look FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up.
  • Make sure your Bluetooth on your phone is on.

 

"CAN YOU CONTROL WHAT IS DISPLAYED (STEPS)? GIVING AS GIFT FOR MY MOM WHO WANTS A PEDOMETER. WOULD SHE HAVE TO CHECK THE APP/COMPUTER TO SEE STEPS?

  • By pushing a button, the charge displays the time, steps taken, distance covered, calories burned, stairs climbed and the time of your next alarm. You control which shows up first on the computer. You can also display the first one on the charge by tapping just below the display. The app is great and easy, too.
  • If you would like to see the steps taken, calories burned, flights of stairs climbed, etc on the actual wristband-you should buy your mom the Charge. Just bought one for my 65yr old mom. Everything is displayed on the wristband. Good luck!
  • Fitbit is an overkill if you want only pedometer. But FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is pretty simple .. no apps needed but u will need to charge FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK once a week. Everyone syncs to their fitbit account so not sure what is the memory on the unit itself if you never sync.
  • Sorry, my original answer should say that you control which one appears first on the charge when the button is pushed by making that choice on your computer dashboard.

 

"IS FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK WATERPROOF

  • The website explains that the Fitbit Charge is only water resistant and you should not wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the shower or in the pool. This is what is said specifically from their webpage, ""Charge has been tested up to 1 ATM meaning FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is sweat, rain and splash proof. However, the device is not swim proof. We also recommend taking Charge off before showering because, as with any wearable device, it's best for your skin if the band stays dry and clean.""
  • No, however the packaging states that FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is ""water resistant"" ""A high-quality, water-resistant, comfortable new textured wristband design with an improved clasp""
  • NO! Definitely not water resistant. Mine got water in FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK from washing my hands. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is completely useless now. I didn't swim dive or bathe with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on. Customer service is awful!
  • Not waterproof or very water resistant. I wore FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the shower once and I already have moisture in it.
  • So, can I swim in the pool wearing it? or take a shower?
  • No
  • No
  • No
  • No
  • No

 

"IS THE SIZING SIMILAR ON THE 'FLEX' AS THE 'CHARGE'? I USED THE SMALL BAND FOR THE FLEX, BUT AM TORN ON WHETHER TO GO LARGE OR SMALL FOR THE CHARGE...

  • I don't have the flex, but my wrist is 7 inches and I got the large band. I have FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on the second to smallest setting comfortably. So if your wrist is the same size as mine or smaller go with the small. Just my opinion
  • My wrist is Just under 6 and half inches, I bought small, but am on last closure, got mine from the high st catalogue shop and tried FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on. Check out Bitbelt too for safety.
  • I have a small wrist and I have the large. There are so many holes to adapt to your wrist. My husband has a large wrist and would like the large to be larger.
  • I'm sorry I don't know. The fitbit website has a printable sizing guide to use. That's how we determined which sizes to order.
  • The Flex is narrower than the Charge, but I wore a large Flex and also wear a large Charge.

 

"DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION?

  • When you purchase your fitbit you create an account so that you can track your activities. On your account you can enter your sleep times, food and water intake and weight (if you want). Your steps are scanned by a small device you have plugged into your computer when you are near it, you don't have to have a subscription to anything, .
  • No. For the basic information covering all the stats, feedback is free and you receive a weekly report via email. The Premium package has an annual subscription & adds more detailed reports. I only use the free info and that's plenty of me.
  • No, The Fitbit App will help you keep track of your goals and progress, if you need additional motivation there is a subscription available but you do not have you get FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in order to keep up with your goals
  • Nope... You buy the fitbit ONCE, download the free app, and there are no more purchases necessary
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does not require any subscription.
  • To get a Fitbit charge--No

 

"WHILE FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK IS DISPLAYING THE CALLER ID, DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK VIBRATE ?? IN OTHER WORDS, DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK NOTIFY THE USER THAT THE PHONE IS RINGING ??

  • I never was able to test FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK because my phone was not ""on the list"" of the very few phones FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK actually works with. I use a Windows Lumia Icon phone, which does work with their software, but they did not program the notification system to work with the Windows phones. I wish I could be more help. I currently wear the Microsoft Band and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does vibrate ( and works with all types of phones ). FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is a few dollars more ( $199 at the Microsoft Store ) but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does a whole lot more.
  • Yes but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK only vibrates once. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will not vibrate repeatedly like your phone would if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK were on vibrate and someone was calling you.
  • Yes FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will vibrate once, but very noticable, I didn't think I cared about this feature, but, I acutally love it.
  • Yes....you feel a small intermittent vibration on your wrist

 

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK STILL WORK IF IT'S IN A POCKET RATHER THAN ON THE WRIST? FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK DOES NOT LOOK VERY FASHIONABLE FOR WORK!

  • I have the FitBit flex, and I intentionally put mine in my pocket when pushing a shopping cart because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK doesn't count steps when pushing a cart, but when in the pocket I have pulled out my phone and watched FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK count steps and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK seems to be just as accurate while in my pocket as FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is while on wrist.
  • My thought is that you would be better off to use the fitbit device that clips onto clothing (and can be worn under a shirt and most likely in a pocket) versus the fitbit charge. I thinkthedevice I am referring to is called the One? Hope that helps!
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does and I have used FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in my back pocket when I have gone paintballing. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will not be as accurate as FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is on the wrist.
  • Other fitbit devices are better for other reasons. Whatever is more convenient.

 

"HOW DOES THE SLEEP MONITORING WORK? IS FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK FULLY AUTOMATIC? (DOES NOT NEED AN ADJUSTMENT TO MODE DAILY LIKE THE FLEX) HOW GOOD IS THE MONITORING?

  • From what I understand FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is fully automatic. I basically leave my fitbit on while I sleep and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK tracks my sleep and when I have been restless. I do believe FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is pretty accurate in monitoring. No adjustments needed (will in my opinion since I have never had to adjust it). Hope this helps.
  • The monitoring is automatic. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is fairly accurate as far as telling you about how long you were in bed, how long you were asleep, and how many times you woke up. I've noticed that if I make a quick trip across the room and back to bed FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will continue to log the movement as sleep time.
  • It's incredibly accurate. No need to set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to sleep. Does FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK automataclly. Very sensitive and can be adusted. You really learn how you sleep and how maybe to make sleep better.

 

"WHAT IS THE BATTERY LIFE ON THE FITBIT CHARGE?

  • My Charge battery lasts about a week. I understand the life of the battery can be shortened by alarms & other activities pulling on the battery. I.e. Constant activity checks. I'm always checking my activity and a week is constant. Sometimes it's not totally drained, but I don't want FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to die during a long workout so I charge each Friday before my long run on Saturday.
  • For me is about 6 Days between every recharge, it's very good but I don't use the alarm feature now if you're taking about the life span of the battery I don't really know but I think FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will last for years
  • I have had a bad experience, it's less than two weeks old and I have had to charge daily if not twice a day.
  • Mine has lasted a week per full charge.
  • I get about 5 to 7 days on mine.
  • About a week...

 

"MY 11 YEAR OLD WOULD LIKE THE FIT BIT CHARGE, BUT HE DOES NOT HAVE A CELL PHONE. CAN U SEE THE STEPS TAKEN WITHOUT HAVING A PHONE W/ BLUETOOTH?

  • On the charge you can. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK also comes with a small plug in for a computer that will allow the fitbit charge to sync on your desktop or laptop computer. I would offer a small warning as my fitbit has a battery issue. I have to charge FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK every 3-4 days. Getting something from fitbit customer service can be difficult. My wife got hers the same time as mine and her battery is awesome. Just a little fyi..
  • The other response regarding the computer is a good point, as you can view the metrics in graph form and such, which can be nice. But FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK sounds like what you're really looking for is just a simple pedometer, which can be bought fairly inexpensively -- if you're not looking for all the bells and whistles.
  • Yes

 

"I NEED ONE OF THESE THAT I DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE ON MY WRIST FOR FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK TO WORK. WILL FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK FUNCTION PROPERLY IF I WEAR FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK ON A BELT LOOP OR SOMETHING?

  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK would probably be slightly more accurate. I believe that wearing FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on your wrist counts the movement your wrists makes not your steps. It's worth a try. What I suggest for everyone is to get a regular pedometer and download any kind of app on your smart phone that records your calories and activity. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is much cheaper and less frustrating.
  • I believe you can get the Fitbit One, which clips on, and seems to measure all of the same things, but doesn't have caller id, or keep track of ""active minutes."" There is a chart comparing all the different models on the item description page and at the Fitbit website.
  • No, you have to wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on your wrist. So far . . .

 

"SMALL VS LARGE

  • I have the large and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK just fits my wrist using the last hole. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is slightly, very slightly, loose and is a nice fit but no room to expand, if needed. I am 6' 1"" 240 lbs. I don't feel my wrist over over sized or anything. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does fit. I hear there is an extra large bit FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK wasn't available when I ordered mine. If you are of average size the large should fit. I hope this helps. The Charge is great! Love the features!!!
  • I have the small and love it. I am only 5'1"" though. Just got to target or best buy and try them on.
  • I'm 6.1 and 14 stone, the large fits nicely with about four holes left to make FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK bigger if needed
  • I would definitely recommend the large. I don't have very large wrists but the large fits nicely
  • Large

 

"I'MISS THINKING OF GETTING FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK FOR MY DAD FOR CHRISTMAS. IS FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK CONFUSING FOR SOMEONE WITH LITTLE COMPUTER SKILLS?

  • I think someone with very little computer knowledge should be able to use FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK activity tracker. Once it's setup you really don't need the computer. Your stats are right on the band with just a push of a button. If he has a smartphone you can view details with their downloadable app. I don't really use the computer for anything.
  • I don't even use my pc with the Fitbit. I have the app on my phone and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK automatically updates via WiFi connection. I believe FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will do the same with the pc if you use the dongle that comes with the fitbit.
  • You might have to set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up, for him, initially. After that FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is real easy.
  • I don't think so the app is pretty user friendly.

 

"IS FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK JUST ME, OR DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE TROUBLE PUTTING THE BAND ON? IT'S SUPER HARD TO ""SNAP"" ON. ANY TRICKS TO MAKE FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK EASIER?

  • I lay FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK against my knee and make sure that I have more of the band (part with ""holes"") laying a crossed my wrist; then bring the clasp part over. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is not the easiest buckle that's for sure and one thing that kills me, is how easy FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK rips off. Putting on my backpack? Forget about it! Rips right off. But, that said, it's still a great tracker. Hope this helps
  • It's a little difficult to get the pins in the holes to allow FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to be one finger clearance under band, but I find that to keep FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK on you need the rap around band to keep FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK fastened, which ever color you like. An add on to the charge.

 

"CHANGE THE BATTERY?

  • I had some trouble with the clasp, and ended up losing it. Customer service was fast, efficient, pleasant to deal with. They ended up replacing FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK for me very quickly and I was very very happy with it.
  • The Fitbit Flex (without the bracelet) is a 1"" long component that fits into it's own USB charger (included). I only have to charge mine about once a week and I wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK every day.
  • I have not had to change the battery. I do charge FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK every 7-10 days. I receive notifications on my phone, e-mail and on the Fitbit itself on when to charge it.
  • There is no change of battery it's a rechargeable battery haven't charge my battery in three days and still full battery
  • You do not need to change a battery on FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK device. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK comes with a battery charger.

"CAN YOU WEAR FIT FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK IN THE SHOWER!

  • No you shouldn't wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the shower. Take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off before showering or swimming. It's water resistant to hold up against sweat and short term water exposure, but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK can't handle full submersion or long term exposure. I have had friends who got the Fitbit Flex instead and wore FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the shower without issue, but it's still not recommended.
  • You should not shower with the Charge but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does offer water resistance for things like rain, washing the dishes, etc.... The Charge HR, however, has superior water-proofing and can be worn on the shower.
  • The responses I have seen is no. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK can get wet but FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is recommend to wipe off right away. Not sure what would happen if you did but not worth the risk.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK recommends you NOT wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the shower

 

"DOES THE FITBIT CHARGE MONITOR MY SPIN BIKE WORK OUT?

  • I am not sure how accurate the Fitbit will be for a spin bike workout. When I am on my treadmill FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is great. However when I am on my elliptical I do not think FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is correctly registering the workout. I feel that the FitBit is only good for actual steps, aerobics, treadmill etc.
  • Hi there, I'm not sure if FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK would monitor your spin bike work out, but I know that fitbit had accessories you can purchase to help modify what you need. Sorry I can't be more help. I do love my fitbit charge and would definitely recommend.
  • Not 100% sure, but have found that doing other exercises other than walking or running will not necessarily be accurate, and other arm movements such as vibrations of handlebars can register additional steps.

 

"IS THE CLOCK ON THE FRONT ALWAYS ON, OR DO YOU HAVE TO TAP FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK TO MAKE THE TIME SHOW?

  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does not stay on all the time. You can set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up so if you tap FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK twice you can see which ever functions FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has. Such as steps or stairs or calories etc!
  • Either press the button on the side or tap FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK twice if you have set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to show clock or FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK can display steps etc
  • No, you have to click a button. Also FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK only shows up phone calls, not text messages.

  • You hit the button to make the time show.
  • Have to tap to make FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK show
  • Tap to show it

 

"DOES FITBIT WORK WITH BANDS

  • Yes, Fitbit Flex does, but remember the cheaper unbranded bands will not last nearly so well as the originals from Fitbit. They tend quite easily to tear in half where the reader is located an none of them has the colour coordinated reader either (if that is important to you).
  • Fitbit is awesome, the wrist band has an issue where if u bump the fastner against something, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK releases. I just ordered the holder clips for my second fit bit as FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is also releasing the clasp and I do not want to lose a second one
  • The Fitbit Flex will work with the replacement bands. The Charge does not.
  • Not the Fitbit charge, charge hr, and the surge but the Fitbit flex does
  • I haven't tried that yet.

 

"I OFTEN WALK WITH MY HAND IN MY POCKET OR PUSHING A STROLLER, WILL FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK STILL ACCURATELY COUNT STEPS?

  • Probably, but if you catch the strap when you remove your hands from your pocket then FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will probably fall off. It's a very bad design and mine falls off 2 - 4 times daily...I have resigned myself to loosing FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK at some point and FitBit offer no solution just ""...see how you get on...""
  • Yes I believe FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK would. I'm not sure but I think FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK gathers the data from your pulse, so FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK doesn't matter as long as nothing is between the device and your skin. I haven't had an problem with mine falling off yet.
  • I returned my fitbit charge because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK counted steps (thousands of them) even when I was sitting at my desk.

 

"SMALL OR LARGE SIZE

  • I got the large and then wear the band mostly tightened (2 loops from fully tightened) but alternatively I likely could have gotten a small and worn FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK loose. I personally prefer to wear a band tightened then to wear anything loose but that's personal preference.
  • Measure the circumference of your wrist. 5.5 - 6.7 inches order small. 6.3 - 7.9 inches order large. Note that you can not change from small to large without returning the unit. At least that I can see. Choose wisely.
  • I bought the small one for a 6"" wrist and wear FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK in the medium hole.
  • Large! I have small wrists and the small barely fits me.
  • I have a small wrist and I have roo to spare.
  • The one I ordered for the wife was small.

 

"I SEE THE FIT BIT CHARGE HAS CALLER ID. IF ITS SYNCHRONIZED WITH THE CELLPHONE WILL YOU BE ABLE TO ANSWER CALLS WITHOUT USING THE PHONE?

  • I was wrong. You can get notices of phone calls. Since the device does not have a speaker or microphone you cannot answer calls using the Fitbit. The caller ID is from the phone, not the Fitbit. Note: mine is having a problem with the strap coming loose from the device. This is after about 4 months of use. My previous Fitbit was recalled due to the cement irritating skin. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK one seems to have gone too far in reducing the adhesive.
  • No. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK just vibrates and if the caller is in your contacts list FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK shows the caller name.
  • Fitbit charge does not have caller ID. No, you cannot answer calls.

 

"CAN YOU DOWNLOAD FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK TO AN IPAD INSTEAD OF A COMPUTER

  • I would prefer to download FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to my computer. Either way FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK should work on my phone and computer.
  • Yes FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has an app. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK even has an app on windows phone and almost no one has those
  • Yes. I actually have mine synced with my Kindle, my computer and my iphone all.

 

"WHY DOES THE SMALL COST MORE THAN THE LARGE?

  • Sherry, I have no idea but if I had to guess your paying for the technology which is the same no matter what the size. Take the plunge n splurge. The fit bit charge is amazing well worth the money. You'll love it. Be sure to measure your wrist though as you have to allow enough room to fit I think FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK was 2 fingers underneath the band. That's the way FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK works best-- not tight like you would ware a watch. I think that I ended up getting the large n FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK was just perfect n I'm not a big or overweight person. Hope this helps.
  • HRM USA sells both the large and small for the same cost. I would suggest contacting the seller with additional questions.

 

"CAN YOU SEE THE WATCH FEATURE ON FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK DURING THE DAY WITHOUT HAVING TO PUSH THE BUTTON ON THE SIDE?

  • No and yes. No, the button does need to be pushed......but, yes, if you set the time as a priority of the display, two taps on the device will display the time without pushing the button. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is bright enough to see during daylight.
  • No, you must push the button. I am fine with that as FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK probably prolongs the time between battery recharges. Currently I am only having to charge FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK once every 7 - 8 days and I wear mine 24/7.
  • You can go to the ""tap gesture"" on the Fitbit app and set FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up to were you can tap your Fitbit twice and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will show you the time.

  • Yes, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has a watch
  • Yes, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is.
  • Yes FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is.

 

"IT DOES NOT COUNT STEPS IF YOU ARE HOLDING ANYTHING IN YOUR HAND WITH FITBIT ON THE SAME HAND. WHY?

  • Not sure why FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is, FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK only counts steps with the swinging of your arm. I guess it's because you naturally swing your arms when you walk or run. Sorry, no solid answer but that's what I figured when i ran into this.
  • Maybe it's has to do with the forward and backward motion of the arm swinging. I don't see that holding something in your hand would make a difference unless you keep your arm still. Just a guess.
  • I am unsure. I know when I'm checking my steps while walking holding my wrist steady FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK still counts. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK still is somewhat of a pedometer so FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK will track movement.

 

"WILL THE FITBIT CHARGE CONNECT TO ANDROID SMARTPHONE AND WINDOWS COMPUTER?

  • The charge comes with a dongle for your computer. I believe FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is Bluetooth, and allows you to connect FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK to your windows computer to upload your daily stats. And I believe FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has an android app, I have the iPhone app and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK connects to my iPhone and the charge even acts as a caller Id
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK has a app for android smartphone, however, I have an Apple I-phone, and there is the app for that. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK works fine with windows 8, so you should be fine.
  • The charger is an usb cable. I have never hooked FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK up to a computer because the app works so well. It's a quick charge for sure though.
  • Yes FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does

 

"WILL FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK WORK WITH MY WINDOWS PHONE 8?

  • Someone from fitbit really needs to check the responses from these idiots. Also, who 'answers' a question on this forum with an 'I am not sure' ? I have seen FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK a bunch on Amazon. If you don't know - don't answer! Fitbit integration with Windows 8 info is here: http://betanews.com/2014/12/10/fitbit-adds-cortana-support-to-its-windows-phone-8-1-app/

  • I used mine a few times at hot yoga now and FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK actually cannot sense my activity during yoga (probably since FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is all fluid motions). I take FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK off now just incase so my sweat won't irritate FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK and I don't like much on me during yoga anyway I wish FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK could pick up my activity!
  • I am not sure about the hot room (sauna?) Is water resistant but reccommended to remove when swimming and showering. To be cleaned with damp cloth, dry afterwards. It's winter now and I have not been able to test as such yet.

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK HAVE NICKLE IN THE STRAP?

  • I don't think so. It's mostly a rubbery plastic material except for the metal knobs that snap into the plastic band to secure it.

  • I have seen people complain that FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK catches on clothing etc. that has not been my experience. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is just slightly thicker than a normal watch. I did purchase the silicone bands that slip onto the wristband as added security so FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK won't fall off. No problem with FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK so far.
  • No it's 3 cm wide and 1 cm thick. It's not flat so if that bothers you I wouldn't get it.
  • I do not think FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is bulky or cumbersome. I have not considered the vivosmart though.
  • FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK is a little bulky but I got use to it

"DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK DEVICE ALERT YOU TO INACTIVITY? THANKS

  • Indirectly. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK tracks active minutes of exercise and step count (walking, running etc.). If FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK scores low you can expect the person is probably sedentary and is inactive. FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK does not capture all exercises well because FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK depends on the wrist motion sensor. The HR model due out in 2015 may be more accurate since FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK continuously tracks heart rate. Staying at 60 bpm all day is very likely inactivity.

"SHOULD YOU WEAR FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK ON YOUR DOMINATE HAND OR THE OTHER ONE? OR DOES FITBIT CHARGE - SMALL - BLACK MATTER?
