Hi, my fitbit charge 2 is at the end of it's days, and I'm wondering whether to replace it like for like, or to try something new? I was thinking of Samsung as it would go well with my phone. Any recommendations would be much appreciated
What fitness tracker?: Hi, my fitbit charge 2 is... - Couch to 5K
Fitbits aren’t accurate. I’d recommend garmin. I’ve got the 35 and love it. It’s much better than my £400 Apple Watch 🙄
Just over 2 months ago I bought a garmin forerunner 35. There is lots of information on it and you download the Garmin connect app which it syncs to .
Just bought garmin 35 last weekend brilliant. All family use this or higher spec.
Thanks, looks like we all agree on this tracker. Cant wait to get mine 🤗x
Any watch that uses the phone’s GPS is going to be the most accurate (Garmin themselves told me this recently). I’m not sure if the fitbits can do this... Apple Watch seems to be less accurate in generations 3 & 4 than the original, but an iPhone is pretty much spot on (also from Garmin support) so as long as it wasn’t used without a phone the watch is great.
That all said, I’m also happy with my Garmin Forerunner 35, despite it’s limitations.
I bought a Garmin Forerunner 15 second hand on eBay for £20 two years ago and it was a fantastic watch. I upgraded a few months ago to a Garmin Forerunner 35 and I’m very happy with it. The 15 was very accurate and did everything I needed, however with the 35 it connects straight to my phone rather than having to be uploaded to a PC first, acquired satellites so much faster and has heart rate monitoring. I only use mine for average pace, distance and time. It’s also compact so now I use it as an everyday watch and fitness tracker.
What a bargain, think I'll see if any available on ebay before I splash out. Thanks x
My husband bought a reconditioned one a year or so ago. Don’t know if it had previously been used or just a return which needed re-boxing. He’s delighted with it. I just wasn’t willing to wait and bought mine off the shelf for about £100
