Comments Off on Fitbit Charge 2 Fitness Tracking Watch
The makers of Fitbit hope customers exercise with an eye on their heart rate. As they say, “a better ‘you’ starts with heart”; your heart, that is. Forget that part of your body and nothing else matters. The Fitbit Charge 2 is on top of your health, though. Take a look.
What Can You Do with the Fitbit Charge 2?
Monitor your heart by day and night. Watch your heart rate over 24 hours. Never forget to move around every so often if you were ever guilty of being sedentary for too long. Find out how many steps you took, distance, calories burned, even how many floors you climbed. There are many automatic, useful elements to the Fitbit Charge 2.
A Closer Look
With the newest Fitbit, consumers are able to keep track of their heart rate all the time, whether at rest or during fitness feats. Ensure you are working hard enough but not too hard and don’t let your heart rest too much for too long. You won’t need a chest strap either; that is uncomfortable and unnecessary.
Reminders, Encouragement, and Motivation
Seeing how far you have gone provides a much-needed mental “high-five” in your day, whether that’s learning you climbed five flights of stairs or took 5,000 steps. When you can see your progress on a given day it’s also possible to set yourself goals based on your success so far. Walk further, be active for longer, climb more steps, and burn more calories. If your Fitbit Charge 2 is on, you will always know. The battery lasts up to 5 days too, so it’s easy to put on and forget about it.
The reminder setting won’t let you go more than an hour without taking at least 250 steps; enough to stimulate circulation but not necessarily get out of breath or lose a lot of time at work.
One of the biggest problems people have with weight loss, stress, depression, anxiety, and general fatigue is related to how much or little sleep they get. The Fitbit Charge 2 records your sleep so you know how deeply you were in la-la land and for how long. It will even wake you silently by vibrating to tell you it’s time to get up and start walking, running, etc.
The Fitbit Charge 2 can be set for all sorts of fitness goals like lifting weights, doing gentle yoga, or running. Set up the exercise using your wrist-mounted display and the Fitbit Charge 2 will follow your lead. Connect to the GPS on your Smartphone too and find out data like your running pace and route. With GPS and SmartTrack, the Charge 2 records where you hiked or biked and keeps track of what you did.
Cardio Level, PurePulse
Determine your current heart rate and push for a harder work out with PurePulse. You’ll understand what your heart is doing and what it could or should be doing in order to improve fitness and also to burn fat if that’s your goal. Remember to breathe too; that’s another part of the Fitbit’s purview. Many people get too caught up in what they are doing and forget to rest, stressing their hearts beyond what’s reasonable. The Fitbit is there for them too.
Sync to Your Phone
As seen above, the Fitbit Charge 2 wireless connects to your Smartphone so you can see information on your wrist, even when your phone is in the car and you’re on a mountain trail. Find out the time, where you should be in the next half hour, and read texts while you hike or run. Even customize the face of your time keeper. Download the app and you’re on your way. The Fitibit Charge 2, priced about $200, is available in lots of colors.
