  1. I lost my Fitbit chart 3 watch at my travel to Taiwan last week. I am really mad with this watch. I really hate who ever design this watch band. Who ever designed this band which is a moron because it’s too easy to fall off from the connecting to the watch body. Only the first week after I bought it. It fell on the ground three times. Why don’t you design it like a real watch? If you have a very expensive name brand watch. You would never let you watch band that easily to lose or disconnectedbecause if that watch fall or lost, it may over 10k us $. Why I spending 345 cad dollars for worry about I am going to lose my watch on the ground all the time?
    I had a Casio sport 50 meters water resistance watch before, that I pay for 25$. I used it for 11 years, I never change battery and the watch band never disconnect with the watch body itself.
    This is my second Fitbit watch, and I will never buy it again because this watch design is not met my need.
    I need a heart rate sport watch, with GPS, step counting and all that cool things for sport, 50 meters water resistant. So I can use it when I scope diving or swim in the ocean. Most important things is never fall or disconnecting from the watch body itself. I am going to give you no stars and a thumbs down ?

  3. It's honestly pretty bad. My wife has one. It has a screen timeout of 3 seconds that you CANNOT ADJUST despite it stating that you can in the manual. Fitbit's fix? Remove it from the manual. Loads of complaints on their forum but they don't care. A company like that doesn't deserve your money. Steer clear.

  10. Charge three, In short it’s a complete piece of shit I’ve owned mine for three months and it constantly has to be re-synced with my phone device or completely reset and cleared so that it will sync with my phone.

  18. If u have problems with any fitbit devices, beyond your own troubleshooting based on some onlibe tips and chat with Fitbit support… Fyi, Fitbit does not have any service or repair centres anywhere in the world.

  23. Rumour on the street is, FitBit are in financial trouble. I ain't buying yet another piece of absolite tech in 6 months, got a kitchen drawer full of it already…

  24. In 2018 I've gone back and forth between the Charge 2 and the Samsung Gear Sport. Overall, I realized I don't need a smartwatch and the simplicity of the Charge 2 much better suits my needs. Is a Charge 3 going to be worth the upgrade or should I hold onto my Charge 2? I understand it's more advanced and aesthetically pleasing, but after watching a few reviews I still can't decide.

  25. They forgot about the charge 2. I checked the website, and I couldn’t see there

  26. That background noise makes it a little more harder to hear and very annoying.

  36. Fitbit versa needs a phone. It doesn’t have built in gps.

  37. I need help putting it on though do u have any method of doing that?

  38. Whats better? Polar A370 or Fitbit charge 3?

  39. Tbh everyone is making such a big deal out of gps and that doesn’t bother me at all looks good for me plus everyone compares it to the Versa but I don’t want something that big on my wrist

  40. Why are you doing this in a loud room hahah

  41. This was a really great review! Thank you!

  42. Have you checked out the Fitbit support site? Many complaints of inability to connect, wildly inaccurate heart monitor, wildly inaccurate sleep monitor, constant need to reboot system, failure to charge, sudden bricking of the device, stress cracking of screen. Very disappointing to call this an update to the 2. Seems like an early beta released very prematurely for the xmas selling season. Currently has 25% one-star reviews on Amazon, with lots of people returning them because of multiple failures.

  43. Do not spend more than $100 for that. Better off buying a used Charge 2 for $25 – $50

  44. Yo, what are you thinking with the reviewer and filming location? This is bad 🙁
