Fitbit company is determined to keep you fit by making sure you never have a reason to take your fitbit off. The company recently added two new devices to their tracker lineup. The first one is called the notification-rich charge 2 and the swim -proof flex. These new models I would say look more classy. It is not obviously a fitness tracker because it looks sleeker and is definitely smarter than the previous ones. whether you’re going for a walk or a swim you have no excuse as to not having your fitbit on. What is amazing about the swim-proof flex 2 is that you can swim with it. This means for those who prefer swimming as a sport activity you will be well calculated for. So what is so special about the new models?
The charge 2 is a Fitbit’s go- to tracker it is for more than just monitoring casual steps. It is for those times you want to know how many calories you have burnt and your heart rate too. What more could you possibly need on your wrist while you’re trying to lose some weight? calls, texts and calendar alerts and it has it all. Unlike the previous models the newer models are bigger too. The Charge 2 is also quite smart, you simply cannot fool it with your small workout activities. It has been designed to know the difference between walking, running or doing yoga versus riding a bike or lifting weights. There is also a new feature that was added particularly for those who prefer high-intensity exercises and rest periods. If you’re into circuit training or boot camps , I recommend this fit tracker for you. This device is like your workout trainer only a digital one, it has other features such as a relax app that takes you through breathing exercises. It also has a connected GPS that pairs with your smartphone to help you navigate running routes. The most intriguing feature is the one that calculates your fitness based on how your body is using oxygen while you’re working out. Usually you would have to go to a lab to check out your score but with Fitbit it looks at your profile data, heart rate and exercise details.
On the other hand, the flex 2 is not as smart as the Charge 2. It has no heart -rate tracker and does not offer a picture of your overall health and on top of that you will have to keep your phone close for updates. The only special thing about this Fitbit is that you can swim with it and its much slimmer than the previous Fitbit. We hope in the near future that Fitbit will add more features on its device and other third parties like Gmail, Facebook and other social media apps.
