To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Purchased a few weeks ago and have been wearing it every day since then. Shipped quickly as expected. Easy to set up/install.
Pros: Cute and slim. Looks exactly like the picture. It's accurate, the charge lasts for a whole week, and it can connect to other fitbit friends so you can compete for step counts with your siblings, coworkers, etc. Great for setting a silent alarm because it will just vibrate on your wrist. Integrates with text messages so your wrist buzzes when your phone buzzes (that could be a pro and a con, depending how you look at it).
Cons: Does NOT integrate with many of the health apps I already use!!! This is a big con for me as I assumed fitbit would automatically sync up with my sleep app and my food apps etc. It does track sleep if you manually enter in the start and stop time, but the sleep data is pretty basic and it's inconvenient to have to manually set each night and morning. The touch screen doesn't always work. Gets dirty fast.
Overall: I should've done more research before purchasing. If all you want is to track steps and heart rate, this is for you. If you want it to see a more accurate holistic health overview with data from other apps, skip it, or check to make sure your apps integrate with it before you buy.
I liked this a lot and wore it constantly, but it died after 16 months. I can't decide whether to buy another, since that doesn't seem like enough use for the cost.
Sleep tracking and silent alarm are great features and I like knowing how I did in my workouts. So that's good stuff.
Even with the turn-on feature disabled it glows kind of brightly at night against my wrist which isn't good for sleep. I often had trouble syncing it, which might be because I wasn't using the latest app updates. It's a little bulky.
I am getting used to the idea of tracking my health, however, I can't figure out how to convert from steps to cycling. Also the rose gold / pink band is easily stained by denim or anything you are wearing. I have not figured out how to clean it or get the rubbed on colors off.
I received this as a Christmas present and for the first couple hours, I WAS IN LOVE! Unfortunately, that all changed due to the beautiful band turning a weird grey/ black color not even after wearing it for a full day! I do not wear dark colors and I was not doing any activities that would cause this so I don't know how to prevent this happening to someone else. The gold on the actual fit bit is really beautiful but just beware that the band stains and changes color VERY easily. My advice is to just save that extra 20 bucks and do the regular silver fitbit.
Easy to use, steps count looks pretty accurate, however amount of calories spent per day is much higher than reality. If i was spending that much calories daily i would never gain weight in a first place.
