Fitbit Charge 2 manual

If you’re looking for a fitness tracker to monitor your heart rate throughout the day, and want multi-sport tracking features, then you’ll want to consider the Fitbit Charge 2. A key improvement over the original Charge is that the Charge 2 offers multi-sport tracking – you can track outdoor running, treadmill running, walking, and weight training, as well as bike, elliptical trainer, and interval workouts. The first difference you’ll notice in design between the Charge HR and 2 is the screen: the 1.5-inch OLED display means the Charge 2 has more room to play with, while the HR’s is significantly smaller with just enough space to display one bit of information at a time.

Getting the most out of your fitness tracker requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
