VintageRachael 15-05-2016 09:43 I love my fitbit! Well I love it for now because it's still sync-ing! They are notorious for developing problems. First up, the small is really just for children or the very petite, I have average sized female wrists and definitely needed the large. Really pleased I read reviews about that prior to buying! I find it useful that this is a watch and alerts me to phone calls - my phone is always on silent and I don't always hear it vibrate so this has been helpful. I find the steps and heart rate accurate enough for what I want from this, and incentive to track this stuff and pay attention to it. I've recommended it to a couple of friends who have bought and are pleased. The app is easy to use and useful - I use it to track calories as well. Seeing my sleep pattern has been fun too. I love seeing my heart rate throughout the day on the app and have found that useful, particularly when exercising. Overall I am very pleased but would warn others that because this is designed to be worn all the time, I do suffer from the 'fitbit rash' - I occasionally leave mine off overnight or go without it for a day every fortnight to combat this.
nstreeter 22-04-2016 03:09 Great fitness tracker If you want a digital watch, that tracks heart rate, steps, and even notifies you to incoming calls, then this is for you. With an adjustable band, you can tighten or loosen the strap depending on wrist size. Heart rate is tracked all day, for the fitness fanatics, this is great, you can see when you're in the cardio zone, fat burn etc. The phone/computer app that goes alongside means you can input calories, track burnt calories, and track your sleep.
kgshoes25 20-04-2016 09:56 Fitbit I bought this for my husband's 57 birthday ! It was a case of what do I get - he wasn't keen. I have to say it has been a great success , he likes the fact that it registers phone calls, steps taken over the day (especially if he's over 10,000 steps ) and sleep patterns !
jamjal 20-03-2016 11:36 Fitbit Charge HR My daughter has been extremely pleased with her Fitbit. She had read that the small strap was too small so we ordered the next size although she does have a small wrist. This was slightly too big but is not really a problem.(the small would have been too tight.) The Fitbit stopped working for a few days but she received good customer service and they miraculously got it going whilst she was on the phone! No problems since. She has found it incredibly usual to monitor exercise, sleep etc.

Jwofficer6170 22-02-2016 11:38 GREAT BUY The Fitbit Charge HR is an excellent tool for recording exercise and recording heart rate. I believe that M & S overcharge as since the purchase I have found that most other outlets sell this item for £20 less.
NoMoreTrousers 31-01-2016 03:34 It Answered a Question or Two My weight has been a bit of a concern of late, but I've never been able to work out where it was accumulating from as I would not consider myself to be someone who overeats. The cupboards are devoid of the kind of sugar and fat ladened treats that most seem to have these days, and I'm a non-drinker as well. The only thing that I could see that was not in my favour was my relatively inactive desk-bound job, but I thought I had taken that into account. I started looking into some sort of monitor as a means of trying to work out what was going on and hit upon this one. There are others around which have the heart rate monitor (which I figured would make the data collected more accurate) but these rely upon a separate chest sensor rather than taking the pulse which is what this device does. I have the one in the rather fetching plum colour as black does not really suit me. The display is a purple LED matrix which shows the time, steps, calories burned, heart rate and flights of stairs statistics in sequence when the button on the side is pressed. It can also be configured to show this information when it is tapped, but I found that the display was activating when I was not requesting it, so I disabled this option. The thing that caused me a lot of problems initially was the setup. It does not appear to be compatible with my tablet as it is Android 4.2 which apparently does not have the Bluetooth 4.0 LE support built into it which meant that I could not set it up that way. I had to borrow a Windows 10 setup to get the device configured which involves downloading the updated firmware and linking it to ones online account on the Fitbit website. Once that was done, I have found that the "galileo" program for Linux is quite capable of syncing the device to the website and uploading the monitoring data as well as downloading any setting changes from the site. The website itself is fairly basic providing charts of your activity and sleep patterns. Periods of high activity are picked up and can be looked at in detail so that you can see a chart of your heart rate and calorie usage. It also has the facility to keep track of your food intake and weight, although I have not yet used the food part of the functionality. All of this performs its job quite well, although you can download the data in Excel format if there is something you need to do with the data which is not catered for on the site. I can get the website to work OK with my tablet, but it still will not upload the data from the monitor. There also seems to be a problem using it with the sleep chart as Adobe Flash is required for this to operate and it does not appear to be picking up the built-in Flash support in Chrome for some reason. It all works fine from my desktop system which is OK for me as I do not need the information when I am on the move. The only real complaint I have is that the battery life is somewhat lacking. It is advertised as being able to go "up to 5 days" before it needs charging, but in practice this seems to be 2-3 days. There are a good few people complaining about this as it appears to have been down to a recent firmware update. That said, it is not too much of an inconvenience as I tend to pick moments when I am not doing much to recharge it since the software seems to calculate an idle calories used figure and use this to fill in where there is no data available. All told, it is doing the job that I wanted it for. I've managed to identify the things which I think had caused the weight increase and thanks to a couple of dietary changes along with the continued monitoring, my weight is starting to slowly fall as I can now make sure that what I consume is less than I burn. It also turns out that I am a little more active than I thought I was as well.
ANITAGRACE 29-01-2016 08:14 fitbitHR Having a lot of trouble synching it with my windows phone.Sent first one back because itlost time and wouldn't record sleep patterns.Really you need M&S a member ofstaff trained in fitbit use to help.
Kempseyshopper 15-01-2016 12:20 Encourages exercise Easy to use once it is synchronised. Despite using the gym regularly I was surprised how little walking I did. The Fitbit encourages me to walk more and keep tabs on how much water I've drunk. I've already recommended it to friends!
