Surprised the charge is cheaper than the flex; based on features? Is there a difference? Thanks OP, will pick one up for my wife.

EDIT: Just noticed neither of them have a heart rate monitor.

If you want heart rate monitor, you should opt for Fitbit Charge HR.

I owned one and returned it. Here's my experience with that product during 3-weeks.

- What I hate the most about this product is the flashing heart monitor sensor. It flashes green constantly and it really GLOWS at night. So if your wife sleeps on the side, it'll definitely be annoying.
- It's recommended that you take off the band when showering... When I wear something, I don't want to take it off.. Apparently, it can damage the sensor...
- The steps aren't even accurate. When I drive, and turn the wheel, it counts as a step... lol.
- If your wife wears long sleeve shirts, it'll be quite annoying.

Hopefully, you consider these points before buying a fitbit product. I'm glad I was eligible for refund on this product. :D

Good luck!

Regarding accuracy: http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/6/107242 ... e-tracking

As for showering + water. I own a FitBit Charge, and had to have it replaced after wearing it one day in July doing yardwork all day in 38 degree weather a sweating so much it damaged the sensor. They were good and gave me a replacement no questions asked as it was witin the first year.

Then there is also the issue of the bracelet band peeling away..a known issue for the Charge & Charge HR

All points to consider.

That's weird that the Flex costs more since it doesn't have the 'floors climbed' tracking that the Charge has.

For anyone considering the Aria: Don't. It only supports wireless B weirdly enough.

Wonder if it has anything to do with WWDC next week and Apple *potentially announcing Apple Watch 2.0

Edit: Unlikely, the sale seems pretty lame. mostly just discounts on bands.

So are they accurate? Inaccurate? Worth the price?
I've been hearing conflicting arguments about them, I'm so confused. I wanna get one for my parents, ultimately for health reasons as my dad recently suffered 2 strokes in the past year....

With any pedometer they are more accurate the longer you use it. None are going to be 100% perfect unless it's wired to your cardiovasular system somehow. But what I find is if you use it for a longer time it will take into account your erroneous movements but since you track it over a longer time when you are actually working out or running it will make more sense reading the analytics. So wear it all the time and check it frequently to make the most out of it. They can be gimmicky if not used consistently.

Was looking for the charge and they're pretty much all gone. Fitbit is discontinuing the charge as well so if it's sold, it's gone and this is what telus reps told me.

I have the One and so does almost everyone I know.

I chose it because:

- Sleep tracking (which I almost never use and you probably won't consistently either)
- Tracks floors
- Easy to clip on to my clothes
- Small and compact
- Better reported accuracy at that time (Apparently wrist bands can register steps when you talk with your hands and not when you're carrying something like a purse or a bag and not moving your arms as much).

It's been over 2 years and I still wear it everyday. It moves from bra to bra until it needs charging (every couple weeks or so).

I paid $80 at Sport Chek so that's a pretty good deal.

Conestoga Mall in Waterloo. They were out of the Fitbit Charge, so decided to try out the code on the HR model.
