At the end of last week I bought a Fibit Charge HR. I have wanted a fitness tracker for some time and knew that I wanted a heart rate monitor as well. While running it’s a great tool to use to find your peak performance levels. The Fitbit Charge HR had everything I wanted in a fitness tracker and then some! And Best Buy had them on sale at the time so saved a little money in the process…score!
All Fitbit’s have a mobile app you can download and sync all your data to so you can track everything. The calories you consume, your water intake, calories burned and even has a sleep tracker you can use to gage your sleeping patterns. On a side note, I think I may need a new bed! It does come with a charging cord and I find I have to charge it about every 3 days, which isn’t bad since I wear it just about all the time except to charge and while taking a shower. When it tracks my workout it shows calories burned during my session and my average bpm(beat per minute) and a graph to show how intense my workout was.
The Dashboard on the app is very nice and I can interact with my friends…engage in challenges, cheer others on and it even has a chat feature. It helps keep me motivated and accountable to my goals. I have found just wearing it is effective enough to remind me to move more or keep me on track to get my workout in for the day.
It has a goal feature that you can set up to have a certain goal met per day. I have my step goal at 10k per day, 5 miles, 2282 calorie burn a day and at least 30 minutes of exercise per day at 5 times per week. I have it synced with My Fitness Pal so it tracks what calories I have in vs. out and my water intake for the day. Overall though I am very impressed with the Fitbit Charge HR and feel it’s a great tool to use.
I was the winner last week in the Friday weight-in contest! I actually gained a pound but I do believe it’s because of “that time of month.” I can’t believe we’re already a month in! 60 days left!!
