Does as advertised. Have had heartrate occasionally disappear with weight lifting/boxing movements, but the device is designed to compensate for this and will give an overall accurate heartrate average for an entire workout. Compared to other brands this is a really low profile watch and is fairly small, which is great. The strap is very secure and as such can be a bit hard to put on or take off, but otherwise no complaints.

"Works as adverstised".

Fitbit not at a good place in SA at the moment. They don't even have a repair centre in SA anymore. My Charge HR strap broke and they sent it back. Not repairable, after enquiring I found out they have no Repair centre.

Have had the Charge 2 for about a week now, and absolutely love it. Upgraded from the original Flex and what a difference it makes. Disclaimer: I'm not an athlete - just an average joe dude who wants to keep track of my steps, heart rate, calories and exercise. I have heard reviews that said the Charge 2 is a tad inaccurate on the heart rate at higher levels, and of course, you can't swim with it. Other than those two things (which don't really bug me), it's a very nice device. I like the fact that you don't need to remove the device from its bands to charge (the charger just clips over the whole thing), which reduces wear-and-tear on the bands. I like the customizable display and the "lift your arm to activate" feature. But oddly, the thing that I like the most is that it can display its ACTUAL battery percentage, giving you much more control over when you need to recharge it - as opposed to just "Green", "Orange" and "Red shit shit shit shit charge now too late dead".
Two thumbs up for the Charge 2 from me.

Absolutely love my new fitbit. Brilliant design and so comfortable. Works super well in tracking steps and my cycling.
Marius, South Africa. 6 December 2017
Good value for money
Tricia, South Africa. 2 November 2017
Loving it! Just so much you can do with it, and makes you so aware of how you live your life - food, exercise, sleep. Only bad thing I can mention is the battery life, only lasts around 5 days, but quick to charge.
Ivan, South Africa. 11 July 2017
Device isnt too bad, however i struggle to get the GPS to work. Cycled for 20km and it showed a 0.00km distance traveled in that 2 hours.
Francois, South Africa. 30 October 2017
I have used the tracker for about 2 weeks now and it does as advertised. Good battery life, clear display and all the stats you want to track your activities. Comfortable to wear 24/7. Only negative is that the fitbit app does not sync with my Huawei phone at all. It does sync with my older Lenovo Tablet. Check the website to verify that your phone or tablet is a supported device.
Keith, South Africa. 15 February 2018
Great watch. User friendly. Perfect for linking to medical aid Momentum. User friendly. Only thing is it's not waterproof otherwise great watch.
Andrew, South Africa. 30 June 2017
Great but doesn't come with dongle for laptop and they don't tell you this either. You can still set it up with your smartphone
Great product, South Africa. 29 December 2016
Great product that easily syncs with your smart phone and Myfitnesspal. I was quite surprised by how accurate the sleeping tracker is.
minke, South Africa. 21 June 2017
I am very happy with my fitbit, only take it off when it needs to charge, which is every second day for about 2 hours
Hannes, South Africa. 31 October 2017
Very user friendly fitness-, sleep-, health tracker. Accurate and links very well with it's app on my android smartphone. No wonder this specific fitbit charge 2 is rated as one of the best fitness trackers around at the moment. Happy happy happy!!

Jannie, South Africa. 17 August 2017
Very good fitness tracker. Works well with my Huawei P10. Very comfortable, I don't notice it while playing tennis.
Timothy, South Africa. 25 December 2017
Works as expected. Nothing super fancy (a bit overpriced if I must be honest).
Mauritz, South Africa. 17 November 2017
Very good device.
Mcguigan, South Africa. 11 August 2017
bought mine elsewhere about 3-4 months ago, works well,
auto detect exercise/ heart rate monitor
battery life is about 6-7 days for me
awesome app with community
its not water proof
no gps, it does use the phones gps though
my strap started breaking off the hinges in month 2-3,
fitbit support not that great based on my one experience as well as what i read up
3 weeks later i got a replacement (full device), sucks if you a vitality member, 3 weeks of missing data
Marquin, South Africa. 14 July 2017
It's mostly a good watch. Rubber strap is prone to warping and bubbling after a few months and is a known highly common defect of the rubber straps. You just need to get it replaced over and over or buy a different material strap. Ensure you have a phone that is compatible as watch does not work with bluetooth 4.1
justin, South Africa. 13 November 2017
Comfortable, nice fit. Keeps track of all that you need it too. Like the sleep tracker. and even though it does not have built in GPS, it tracks on GPS with your phone, so this works for me. Overall really enjoying using it.
Henk, South Africa. 21 December 2016
Does not support all smartphones. Be sure to check the list of supported devices before buying. Fitbit also refuses to exchange / refund the device if it does not sync with your smartphone.
Deon, South Africa. 20 February 2018
I am very happy with the Fitbit Charge 2 but not the service that I have received from Takealot.
P, South Africa. 13 January 2018
Changed my life. I've got off the couch and got involved in the Fitbit community.
Margaret, South Africa. 18 September 2017
Geoff, South Africa. 21 February 2018
Great product. I had the Charge HR, the previous version before, and find the latest Charge 2 excellent.
Marius, South Africa. 6 December 2017
Performing as expected for this kind of device
matthew, South Africa. 22 May 2017
This item is perfect for day to day use/monitoring but not for exercising. It will not pick up your heart rate accurately unless your arm is straight with no bending of the wrist. As you can imagine, this means during exercises such as spinning, weightlifting or sprinting the Fitbit fails to keep an accurate heart rate.
Unfortunately, this seems to be a common problem for this device as well as many other wrist based heart monitors.
But if you intend to use it to track steps, or calories and heart rate throughout the day then it works well.
Tony, South Africa. 19 June 2017
I have repeatedly requested help with the set-up of the 2 Fitbit Charge2 that I purchased. I have, many times, stated the following:
â€œI purchased two Fitbit Charge2 about ten days ago.
I followed the instructions as required and was surprised that when asked to select a region, Africa - specifically South Africa did not appear on the list.
1.I selected UK in order to proceed with the installation and then had to fill in a personal form in Imperial units! There was no option (then) to use the metric measures so I had to convert height and weight into cm and kg. I found this very irritating as it was not what I expected.
2. I then ended up at "Fitbit connect" which simply said "Plug in a dongle". I re-checked both boxes to make sure that I had not missed any possible "dongle" and then entered details of my problem on the "fitbit setup" page with a request for help.
3. I was then convinced that what seemed to be a competitive price was turning out to be not so - and I then realised that I had (probably) purchased "grey imports"
4. I have had no response from "Fitbit" and have been unable to establish what kind of dongle is being referred to.
In addition, I wrote the following:
I went on to the FitBit site and completed the relevant information and description of the problem with no response. I then completed your on line survey where I repeated what I had said before â€“ also no response.
Quite disgusting service ...

my wife loves it.
Catia, South Africa. 21 June 2017
I got one as a gift 2 weeks ago and it has really helped me track my day to day! The food database isn't relevant to SA, but it syncs up beautifully to MyFitnessPal which is awesome! Tracking my sleep, water consumption, calories burned, heart rate and step count have been so great! It doesn't alert me to WhatsApp or Email messages, but it alerts me to iMessages and calls - which works for me because it's mainly what I need. Counting flights of stairs and vibrating alerts are a plus too. So, so happy with my little Fitbit Charge 2!
George, South Africa. 17 December 2017
Great product, I have had no problems and it is great at what it does!
Claud, South Africa. 23 May 2017
Takealot.com was very fast to deliver. Fitbit Charge 2 works well. Nice to challenge yourself daily. I linked it to my Discovery Vitality account to achieve vitality rewards. I have noticed that the heart rate monitor goes a bit faulty when I'm doing a long run over 20 minutes & my wrists become sweaty, not excessively sweaty in my opinion. I had to slow myself down mid-run to remove the fitbit & give it a wipe & also wipe my wrist. This happened about 3 or 4 times before my 30 minute run was over.
Sylvia, South Africa. 11 December 2017
Best pricing and excellent Fitbit Charge 2 is a winner!
Ashley, South Africa. 8 February 2018
Great product, I was leaning towards buying the Apple Watch but after much research, I opted for the FitBit due to costs and the fact that I mainly wanted to track health & exercise. It notifies you who's calling by a simple glance on your watch and the FitBit App works great and supports Discovery Health.
Adele, South Africa. 12 February 2018
Adriaan, South Africa. 2 February 2017
Cannot use it while rowing or weight lifting. Unit doesnt pick up your heart rate when your arm is tense. Support in SA is very poor! They just refer you to the International Website and contacts.
Jarryd, South Africa. 10 July 2017
Love it. Was in two minds about getting one but so glad I did.
LL, South Africa. 22 May 2017
So far so good. Love it... very handy to track your sleeping patterns... amongst other things.
Jerome, South Africa. 8 November 2017
The fitness device requires to be activated on a pc or using the app on a phone, as per the manufacturers online instructions. Both options do not work, tremendous software issue!
Daniel, South Africa. 19 December 2017
It’s a little hard to set up but it doesn’t show your WhatsApp messages but great watch
Craig, South Africa. 26 December 2016
Excellent value for money considering the features of the watch, the iPhone APP that you can download to use the watch also offers so much extra functionality!
Leon, South Africa. 16 June 2017
Inaccurate Step Count
Georg, South Africa. 13 May 2017
Wanted to give them 4 star as I had 2 previous ones that stopped working but on both occasions their head office in the USA replaced them free of charge within 2 weeks. Excellent product that works well and synchs well with my Samsung phone.
Anya, South Africa. 22 January 2018
What a pleasure! Currently really enjoying my Charge 2. Im glad that I decided to go with the charge as opposed to the Fitbit Alta which I initially had my eye on. The app is initially tricky to use because some features arent as obvious in the layout, but just by playing around it becomes easier to navigate. I am also impressed by the durability of the device. I have accidentally bumped it against doors and walls and not even one scratch!
The only thing I am missing is that whatsapp and calendar notifications arent displayed on the Charge 2-only SMS and phone calls.
It would also be great if Fitbit was finally able to integrate information from the Nike Plus running app.
Martin, South Africa. 20 June 2017
Debruyn, South Africa. 16 January 2018
Heartbeat monitor not as accurate as i want during workout itself. Screen's timeout should be longer as well. Acceptable product as per description.
Barend Daniel, South Africa. 19 September 2017
This product is brilliant. If you are thinking about buying it, do it. Now.
Gayle, South Africa. 31 October 2017
X, South Africa. 20 November 2017
This device is absolutely wonderful and is a pleasure having on you’re wrist. It fits comfortably (noting that you might need to buy another replacement band depending on what you use it for) and doesn’t irritate you. For all day use this is a great product and never has problems. Take notice that the first 2-3 charges may not have such a long battery life , but after that it works perfectly. I highly reccomend this product to anyone looking for a simple , yet useful device.
Gerald, South Africa. 31 October 2017
great service from TaL.com . (I think Takealot is an idiotic name. It's simply not true. They sell, you buy. Who takes?)
But very good service, albeit, the two dudes who ambled up the drive to deliver did not ask for a signature and so I don't think there is proof of delivery. No matter I have the device. It is great and much improved over the prior model. I have a software problem in that I have not discovered how to see a record of HR over a past period ( 12 hours or 24 hours)
Naren, South Africa. 10 January 2018
unable to pair my fitbit to my mobile phone. Attempted 4-5 times, but without success.
Janine, South Africa. 22 February 2018
The fitbit charge 2 does everything it says it does, good product, best purchase ive made in a long time
Ravendran, South Africa. 31 January 2018
Heart rate monitor not accurate and is incorrect by as much as 30 heartbeats per minute when exercising.
