FItbit Charge 2 was announced a couple of days ago and should be available in stored end of this month. I received one here. Really nice feel, keeps the heart rate monitoring from the original Chrge HR, swappable bands, a relaxation routine guide with feedback and a new cardio fitness level (VO2 Max) based on exercise level and body composition.

Looking at this or the Blaze to replace a Charge HR. Still no proper waterproofing though!





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

The new Fitbit Flex 2 is waterproof, finally. 

 

 

 

 

oh really? didnt notice that it was actually waterproof (50M deep by their specs) i took 'swimproof' as a gimmick once the blurb said "splash proof"

Would be nice if you could get features of the Blaze or Charge 2 and be able to swim\shower without removing it.
