Keep on steppin'
Reviewed in Australia on 29 September 2018
After many months of problems with the Garmin vívofit (failure to reset, lost steps, failure to count fitness minutes, wrong time), I gave up and ordered this fitness watch. The advantages of the Garmin are long battery life (mine lasted almost a year), waterproof cover, and light feel (almost never had to take it off). The FITBIT Charge2 needs recharging every 4-5 days, is water resistant (but not proof - so shower seems okay, but no swimming), and it heavier than the Garmin. Other than that, though, the FITBIT is a more useful fitness watch in every respect. The display is easier to read than the Garmin and after 5 months no problems, except the connect icon keeps disappearing from my laptop toolbar. In contrast to Garmin Support (who tended to be stroppy and unhelpful), however, FITBIT support chat was fast, polite and helpful (solution was just to reinstall).
