Sandra’s View “I like it”, January 7, 2017

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Fitbit Flex 2, Black (US Version) (Health and Beauty)
I have never had a fitbit or anything like it, but my friend came to me, one day all excited about her new fitbit, so I decided to get one, that very day. My fitbit flex 2 arrived last night. The fitbit flex comes with 2 decent plastic bands, a small and a large. I chose the small, to wear, which is a pretty good size. I downloaded the app on my I phone 5. I charged the battery and I attempted to sync the fitbit to my phone. The fitbit did not sync immediately, but as soon as I turned my blue tooth off and on, the fitbit synced rather quickly to my phone. I put the fitbit on my wrist. It is quite comfortable, but a little sweaty, once you really start moving. I am an overweight person, and I have not exercised in quite some time. I have to say, I was extremely motivated today, I was excited and determined to go from 0 to 10,000 steps. I was over the moon, when I reached my goal. The fitbit dashboard on my phone, is amazing, it tells you your steps, food intake, calories burned, water intake, sleep activity etc. I am anxious to see my sleep recordings in the morning, over all I am happy with my new toy. Hopefully this will give me the push, I need in 2017 to make some better lifestyle changes.UPDATE-January 13, 2017-My advice, give yourself a realistic goal, don’t get me wrong, 10,000 steps is achievable, but it is really hard to do, if you are focused and motivated, you can do it. I use music and I do some stepping in the morning, at night, of course throughout the day. FYI- I love the sleep tracking, it is pretty accurate, it tells you how many times, you wake up, at night, how many times, you are restless, when you went to sleep, when you wake up, I am truly addicted to fitbit.UPDATE-February 25, 2017-I am still doing at least 10,000 steps or more every day. I love the challenges within the fitbit community. There are friend requests and you or other people can challenge each other, to see who can do the most steps, in a day, a weekend, a week. I really love goal day, where each person strives to complete his or her goal. The challenges are really a great motivator for me, to continue to exercise. The challenges, drive me to do more steps.UPDATE-APRIL 28, 2017-No problems with my fitbit, still love my fitbit, still using it and still getting 10, 000 steps or more in a day:) no longer a couch potatoUPDATE-JUNE 30.2017-No problems with my fitbit, still love it, I have started to use the food log, which is on the dashboard of the app. The food log is great, you key in what you ate and it automatically pulls up the food and you add it to your log. It is good because it allows me to be more aware of all the food, I have eaten. It also tells me, when I have gone over the amount of food, I am allowed to eat for that, day, according to my weight. I have lost 20 pounds, still loving my fitbit:)UPDATE:SEPTEMBER 11, 2017-Fitbit still works great, no problems. I am still addicted to hitting my steps.UPDATE:NOVEMBER 18, 2017-Fitbit still works great, problem, fitbit didn’t reset itself one day, at, midnight, but there is a small button to reset it on the back of the charger. I am doing 20, 000 steps a day and still loving my fitbit. I actually got it wet, for the first time in the shower, I was too afraid before, but it still works fine. I really love it. This is my last post, hope it has been helpful to you.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!, October 7, 2016
By MT Gal (Plano, Tx United States) –
This review is from: Fitbit Flex 2 Smart Fitness Activity Tracker, Slim Wearable Waterproof Swimming and Sleep Monitor, Wireless Bluetooth Pedometer Wristband for Android and iOS, Step Counter and Calorie Counter Watch (Health and Beauty)
I LOVE this band! I had the Fitbit One (clip) for 3 years….its been washed, went swimming, left in dressing rooms, you name it. I’m honestly surprised I didn’t lose it sooner. While I loved the simplicity of the One, when I finally lost it the Flex 2 is the same price so I figured I’d try to make the switch…..I was nervous about a wrist tracker from stories about grossly inaccurate step counts. I have a very small wrist and found this to be thinner on my wrist than my Michael Kors watch. It is extremely lightweight, and simple. If you are “gadgety” and want more of a watch function, this won’t be it for you. All it does is with 2 quick taps shows your progress on the buttons during the day. It will vibrate with calls and texts, and can remind you to move your 250 steps an hour. It has done a good job with sleep tracking, and I must say is pretty accurate with the step count.
Pros:Extremely lightweight, not bulky and the lavender is a gorgeous color.Easy to snap on, and can be worn loose or snug.Water proof-I don’t wear it in the shower but put it on right after and don’t have to worry about unclipping like my old one when I switch from Pj’s to work pants, to workout gear, etc…..Put it on and forget about it (unlike the dressing room I had to go back to 2 hours later after trying on clothes once).Vibrates with texts/calls/reminds you to move every hourEasy syncing/tracking on phone-you can’t see anything from the band so you have to sync periodically throughout the day from the app. I have my phone all the time so that’s not a big deal for me.Removable tracker pops out easily and can be used in other accessories.
Cons:No watch/HR/caller ID functionNo stair climber function-for some reason I really liked that with the One. Kinda bummed.
Overall I would say this is an excellent product. Since I have a watch and am not a hardcore workout person, I don’t need the extra bells and whistles of other Fitbit models. It does the job, and is holding up nicely. Would recommend.

Great all-around device!, November 27, 2016
By Catherine I. –
This was my first Fitbit device, and I am very pleased with its performance. I had debated getting the Flex 2 or the Alta, but chose the Flex 2 for its slim profile, waterproof design, and lower price point. I have yet to incur water damage, and the five-light design is very minimalist yet informative.One of the main reasons for purchasing a Fitbit was for the silent alarms, as my alarm would annoy both my roommate and me in the mornings. Although I at first set backup alarms on my phone, I turned them off as I realized the Flex 2 had very strong vibrations that have never failed to wake me up in nearly a month’s use.A common complaint is the press-on design of the band, and at first, I was disappointed at how difficult it was to put this on. However, after use, it became much more comfortable to put it on, but not to the point where I felt it was in danger of falling off by itself.Finally, I love the Fitbit software, whether online or on mobile. I like the social aspect, particularly the friendly competitions and challenges. Although this model lacks a heart rate monitor, I use my Samsung Galaxy S7’s heart rate sensor in conjunction with my fitbit to track my exercise statistics.
PROS:Slim and minimalist designDurable bandWaterproof pebbleStrong, effective vibrations (alarms, notifications)Software
CONS:no HR monitor (not truly a con at this price point)
