Fitbit Charge 2

Best High Tech Sports Watch

Why people love it
  • Intuitive interface that's wonderfully easy to use
  • According to reviewers, includes a wider range of features than most comparably-priced models
  • Consistent for moderate and high-intensity exercise

Beautiful sleek design, feature-rich, highly accurate wristband HR monitor, easy to use in tandem with workout apps, and great for most aerobic activities.

Strap buckle is a bit cheap and not the best for truly punishing workouts.


Performance: If you're looking to go high-tech, this FitBit is the watch for you. It's a sleek bracelet that is far less obtrusive than a proper fitness watch. The FitBit "face" is small and slim, and the band looks great on your wrist. It's not going to match a suit and tie, but it's ideal to wear with anything from gym sweats to casual professional attire.

Features: This is one of the most versatile of the FitBit models, largely thanks to the wide range of features it offers. In addition to the watch features, it comes with all the standard fitness tracking options--pedometer, calorie counter, step counter, etc.--but also includes a few additional features you won't get with basic health activity tracking watches: auto sleep logging, heart rate monitor and zoning, caller ID to see who's calling you, and exercise log. You'll even love that there are EIGHT silent alarms built into this baby!

Note: Some users report that the heart rate monitor is less accurate when performing high intensity exercise or anything that involves sudden spikes in heart rate.

Price: At $130, it's a bit of a pricey option for a simple fitness watch. However, it's a good option for anyone who wants to take their timekeeping high tech. If you're looking for a versatile sport watch with fitness tracking capabilities, this is a great option.
