Thanks for the heads up. The wife and I were planning on buying something like this for each other for Valentine's Day so I grabbed 2!

I literally just bought one from Amazon two days ago. Too bad they don't do price adjustments.

I bought the Inspire 2 last Black Friday, but wished I had gone for the Charge 4.
The Inspire 2 has all the features I need and the Charge 4 was going to be over-kill. but...
The Inspire 2 has a plastic body (cannot verify if the display is Gorilla Glass or not) where-as the Charge 4 is aluminum and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display.
Inspire 2 has a "connected" GPS and the Charge 4 has NFC for contactless payment and a built-in GPS.
The Inspire 2 does hold the charge longer 10 days compared to 7 for the Charge 4 (marketing???).
So it's a judgement call on how active you are (plastic vs aluminum body), your needs and the price points.
I enjoy mine and it's a step up from the original Fitbit Charge HR I had before. Wear it daily and miss it the odd day when I forget.

I have a Fitbit before their bluetooth connectivity was horrible, while I was searching for solution I found it was a pretty common issue.

+1, I enjoy Garmin Vivosmart 4 so much more (specially as it goes beyond basic metrics due to advanced sensors) and their app is well designed as well.

FYI, don't forget Google now owns Fitbit and will monetize your health data.

Does this one allow for glucose monitoring? Or any Fitbit for that matter?

I have the Fitbit Inspire and it’s perfect. I had the Versa but prefer the basic lightweight Inspire. I found the Versa and Apple Watch too clunky, and overkill for my needs. The battery lasts at least seven days between charges. There’s something for everyone and this is great for the basics and it’s lightness is a big plus. I hardly notice it on my wrist.

I have a long history with the Charge HR and now Inspire HR. These are great as long as you know what you are buying, a lightweight/slim watch/tracker. Yes, you'll notice micro scratches on the screen over time and I really only expect these devices to last 2-3 years. I'm okay with that.

Bluetooth was terrible on my Charge HR. But on my inspire HR, no issues.

I think Fitbit has been very accurate in terms of their battery life estimates. Mine was always rated for 5 days, lasted 5 days.

There are details on how to reduce micro scratches on the internet. Hint, it involves toothpaste. If you follow the directions you can get pretty good results.

It looks like this is the same price at most retailers. Is there a best place to buy it? (eg, if a retailer's gift cards are discounted, etc).

It's too bad fitbit is excluded from Sportchek's friends and family sale.

Can anyone tell me if you can extract your heart rate data over the course of a set time frame? For example, can you look at the data for the entire week or something like that?

It's a great product. If you want it to show you texts and do some basic control like spotify from your phone it's got that but it's barebones. Which is what I love about it. I use mine to track sleep, heart rate, calories and steps. Not sure on its accuracies but paired with the app it's a great tool for a lot of things. Add the long over due waterproofing and large battery like it's a great help to stay fit. Would recommend. Upvoted
