Make Every Beat Count Throughout Your Day

Fitbit Charge2_Black_Clock_Steps_300dpiFitbit Charge 2 automatically captures all-day activity, including steps, distance, heart rate, floors climbed, hourly activity, active minutes and calories burned. Fitbit Charge 2 also offers automatic sleep tracking, which records how long and how well you sleep in the Fitbit app, and lets you create a sleep schedule, complete with bedtime reminders and a silent vibrating alarm for gentle wake ups. There’s even Reminders to Move, a motivating new smart feature that displays friendly messages and give you a small vibration that encourages you to stay active throughout the day and keeps you on track toward hourly step goals.

The easy-to-read tap-sensitive display is four times larger than the original Fitbit Charge HR, so you can see more activity stats and keep your fitness goals on track with just a glance. You can also quickly view notifications from your smartphone on the go, when your phone is nearby, helping you stay connected to what matters most with call, text and calendar alerts. And the long battery life (up to 5 days*!) of Fitbit Charge 2 ensures you can keep moving without missing a step or a beat.

Make Every Beat More Meaningful During Workouts

Fitbit Charge HR revolutionized the industry by bringing automatic heart rate tracking to your wrist with PurePulse. Now, Fitbit Charge 2 takes that technology to the next level with an enhanced exercise experience and new health and fitness tools powered by PurePulse, including Cardio Fitness Level and Relax.

  • Cardio Fitness Level: Find out how fit you are with a personalized cardio fitness level and score, based on your estimated VO2 Max, that are calculated using your user profile, heart rate and exercise data.
  • Relax, guided breathing sessions: This new on-device feature offers a relaxing mindfulness experience that calms your body and mind through personalized deep-breathing sessions. The beat-to-beat changes in your heart rate determine your personalized breathing rate for each experience.

In addition to new heart rate-based features, Fitbit Charge 2 offers precise exercise modes that provide real-time exercise stats, helping you stay focussed and get the most from every sweat session, including multi-sport modes for tracking specific workouts like runs, biking, weights, yoga, and interval workout mode, which guides you in alternating periods of high-intensity exercise and recovery to maximize workouts like circuit training.

Fitbit Charge 2 also offers Connected GPS, which links your fitness tracker to the GPS in your smartphone to provide even more precise real-time stats like pace and distance to help you improve your run, bike, or hike experience while also recording a map of your route in the Fitbit app. And SmartTrack auto exercise recognition, which automatically tracks select exercises, including walks, runs, bike rides, treadmill exercise, sports, and aerobic workouts, and records in the Fitbit app—so you get credit for your exercise activity, even if you don’t track it manually!

Make Every Beat Count in Style
