In the Spotlight: Fitbit Charge

Whether you're new to the world of fitness trackers or you're a faithful wearer of your own tried-and-true tracker, take a minute to learn more about the Fitbit Charge. A fitness tracker that truly has it all – style, function and convenience – the Charge will track your steps, show you daily stats and the time of day, monitor your sleep patterns and wake you up with a silent vibrating alarm. And that's just for starters.

Observe all of your real-time fitness stats right on your wrist using the bright OLED display. What's OLED? It's an LED screen that can work without a backlight. It's thinner and lighter than an LCD screen, and in low ambient light conditions it can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD screen. They are tough and durable, suited well for more active lifestyles.

The Charge displays your steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed and active minutes.

Someone calls during your next jog and you don't feel like fishing out your phone… Not to worry! The Charge even shows caller ID. Glance at your wrist and decide if it's worth a pause in the workout or if you will call them after you reach the finish line.

With a battery life of 7-10 days you won't have to worry about your Charge giving out on you mid-week during your most intense bootcamp class. And the wireless syncing lets you sync stats automatically to your compatible smartphone and computer.

Don't forget the app
When you have a tracker like the Charge on your wrist, slacking off becomes a little bit tougher. It reminds you to keep your lifestyle focused on your health and wellness in every step that you take, and with the app, you can see your progress on –the-go, along with detailed charts and graphs so that you can track all of your trends over time. Pinpoint where you need to step up your game – take charge of your life and your health with the Fitbit Charge.

Available on 120+ mobile phones, the Fitbit app can be downloaded from the App Store, Google play and the Windows Store. Kick your Charge experience up a notch with the app: log calories with the barcode scanner; connect with friends and motivate each other; view your sleep charts; use MobileRun when you want to track more details like GPS data for your runs, walks and hikes; set goals and even track your weight, BMI, lean mass and body fat percentages.

Using the app, the Fitbit dashboard will always be with you, so you can check all your charts and graphs in a second to get a feel for where you are and where you need to be as far as your fitness goals.

But don’t take our word for it…

Here’s what recent customers have to say about their experience with the Fitbit Charge:


“I was already an active person, but my Fitbit has motivated me to move even more, reaching a daily goal of 10,000 steps and often many more. It has also helped me to monitor my food intake and quality, resulting in a loss of 7 lbs. in the first month. So easy to use, and tracking my progress motivates me to do more.” –  Moving2015 (April 12, 2015)


“Don’t know how I ever lived without it! It is so easy to use, and for anyone who works out regularly, this is a must have! I keep up with my calorie intake, which has made me so much more aware of my eating habits. You can set goals for yourself too. I get email notifications and push notifications letting me know how well I am doing...I feel more motivated now more than ever and I have lost 3 more lbs.” –  Pooh1977 (April 5, 2015)


“I love my Charge…I love that it tells time and shows my actual step count, and love that it counts stairs too. It seems to actually be right on the flights of stairs because I will count them. It is a great product and helps to keep me fit.” – Kayelane (March31, 2015)
