Fitbit Flex 2 Review

34

Whether you have just purchased a Fitbit Flex 2 or are just starting to look at fitness trackers, there are some important factors to keep in mind. These factors will help you make the best decision for your needs.

Swimming issue

Unlike the original Flex, the Fitbit Flex 2 has a more slim profile. It also has a more secure clasp. While the original Flex had a touch screen, the Flex 2 has a LED notification display.

The Fitbit Flex 2 has a built-in swim tracker that tracks swims automatically. There are also options to manually log activity and calories. However, the data that the Fitbit reports may be inaccurate. The data reported is based on how much activity was detected, so if you stop swimming for more than a minute, you will receive inaccurate data.

In order to manually track your swimming sessions, you will need to set the swim length and the amount of time you swim in a continuous session. The minimum swim time is 15 minutes, but you can adjust this to match your needs.

Lack of altimeter

Considering the price tag on the Fitbit Flex 2, the lack of an altimeter is a bummer. On the plus side, the Fitbit Flex 2 boasts some very impressive stats about your daily fitness regimen, and a cleverly disguised charger port. As a result, your Fitbit Flex 2 will be on your wrist, and out of your pocket, for many years to come. You will find the Fitbit Flex 2 to be a solid choice, and a worthy replacement to your worn out Fitbit FitBand. To help you make the most of your workout, Fitbit has developed a new fitness app called FlexFit that will give you access to your Flex 2’s stats. Plus, the Fitbit Flex FitBand will automatically sync with your Fitbit smartphone app, giving you access to all of your favorite fitness apps in one place.

Lack of loop through which to thread the strap

Fortunately, Fitbit has a plethora of options for the fitness buff in the home, office, or lab. If you have the right tools and the right attitude, you should be able to get the most out of your device, no matter what your preferred wearable computing platform is. If not, you can always call in the pros. After all, the best Fitbit care experts aren’t afraid to do the dirty work. Besides, this way, you can have a little fun with your Fitbit while you’re at it.

Whether you are an old hand or a newbie, the Fitbit Flex 2 is a worthy upgrade. After all, it is the best smartwatch you’re ever likely to buy. Whether you go for the standard model or the more expensive variant, you’ll be happy you did.

Community features

Despite its glitzy makeover, the Flex 2 has a slew of shortcomings. Aside from being the most uninspiring of its kin, the device is also the most expensive if you were to ask the unwashed masses. Not to mention the aforementioned stumbling around. Hence, it is no surprise that this tech-addicted fitness buff is the only one in the hulks. Indeed, he is one of only two Flex owners I know of, the other being a fellow geek aficionado with a name to match. Hopefully, his latest fling will be a cinch to keep. Besides, the untidy buff has the means of reentry to a more respectable abode. As luck would have it, he has the lion’s share of the sex, so there’s a plethora of opportunity to abound.

Price

Whether you’re looking to lose weight or just want to keep track of your daily activities, Fitbit Flex 2 is an ideal entry-level fitness tracker. It’s designed to be stylish and functional, and offers several unique features.

It’s waterproof to 50 meters, so you can swim with it. You can also track your sleep, and accurately track calories burned. You can also set goals for your workouts, and see a summary of your daily activity. You’ll also get text and call notifications. It can send reminders to move, and flashes colour-coded lights to indicate messages and missed calls.

It’s also easy to customize Fitbit Flex 2 to fit your personality. You can choose from four different colors, and you can add jewelry-like metal “bangles” for an extra touch of style.
