A refreshed design, larger screen and enhanced activity capabilities make the Fitbit Charge 2 an excellent midrange fitness tracker.

This redesigned tracker shines

from Tom's Guide

There's nothing hugely revolutionary about the Charge 2, but its new features, as well as its new design, make it the best fitness tracker in its price range.

Reinvented with new design and more features

The Charge 2 shows why Fitbit continues to be number one in terms of sales. It simply serves its purpose very well, even if it doesn’t come with military-grade aluminum, a super AMOLED screen, 3D Touch, or things like that. It’s a tracker that does its job and it’s hard not to be pleased with it if this is what you’re looking for.

When it comes to fitness tracking wearables, Fitbit is still the one to beat. The Fitbit Charge 2 has all the features most active (and people who aspire to be active) need to know. It shows you the time, date, daily step count, heart rate, stairs climbed, calories burned, distance traveled, and sleep tracking. Throw in smartphone notifications, reminders to move, guided breathing exercises to help you destress and automatic exercise tracking, allows the Charge 2 to easily earn an award for my current favorite fitness tracking device.

A great way to get a base line read on your life

Fitbit Charge 2 is a stress-free, precision-focused fitness companion.

All in all, the Fitbit Charge 2 is the best wearable Fitbit has come out with yet, and it’s also one of the best fitness trackers you’ll find on the market today.

Takes fitness tracking to the next level

from Mashable

In the past, we criticized Fitbit for not providing much analysis when it comes to the stats it's actually tracking, so it's nice to see the company adding more features that help explain what everything means. Even though I already know I'm not working out consistently enough, it's helpful to have a quantifiable metric beyond steps and calories to keep track of. If you're not a big gym-goer and are more interested in the basics — tracking steps, calories and notifications from your phone — then the Charge 2 is likely not the device for you. But if you're looking to make your workouts more efficient and keep tabs on your heart rate, the Charge 2 offers the best of both worlds in a tracker that still looks good enough to wear every day.

Trying to top a classic

from TechRadar

The Fitbit Charge 2 is an improvement in every way over the Charge HR, but you'll only want to upgrade if you're after more fitness tracking and a large display to see your results.

As with almost all Fitbit products, they tend to be a popular and well rounded offering. And the Charge 2 is mostly in that same vein. The unit includes new sport modes that help you to get better data about your specific activity. Plus, the separable bands are nice should you want to mix things up. And 24×7 HR accuracy continues to be generally good.

The Fitbit Charge 2 is a pretty big upgrade over the original Charge HR. Not only because of the larger screen, but it’s just a better product overall. It’s great that Fitbit opted to keep the same design that they used on the Fitbit Alta, although the bands for the Alta won’t work with the Charge 2 since it’s a bit wider. But the ability to swap out your bands is definitely a big plus. The Fitbit Charge 2 runs for about $150 normally. That’s not too bad for a fitness tracker, and if you’re a fitness buff, then this is the one you’ll want to pick up (or the Fitbit Surge). Especially since it does have that heart rate monitor included, allowing you to keep up with your activity level when working out or going for a run.

The Charge 2 is, like a lot of fitness trackers, a perfectly decent way of casually monitoring your daily activities. That good-sized display means you can quickly and easily check out your vitals without having to pull out your mobile, while the well-designed app offers up all kinds of feedback and social interaction. Of course, accuracy is as always a bit of an issue, and hardcore fitness enthusiasts will have little incentive to part with their cash. But for the rest of us who want to migrate away from the couch, the Charge 2 is a decent incentive (and occasional cheery kick up the arse) to get moving.
