For lack of another thread to post this, thumbs up to Fitbit's customer support. Been using a Charge 2 since January and suddenly over the last 3 weeks the battery has started dying in 2 days instead of the 5 it's supposed to last. My partner's one was setup at the same time and is still fine and still lasts 5-7 days. Emailed Fitbit with a copy of the receipt asking for their advice and they replied quickly with instructions to perform a battery test. This was charging it fully and syncing it 5-10 times a day until it was flat and then they could see the battery level at each sync from their end. So did this and it again died in 2 days and they replied last Thursday that they would send me a replacement under warranty.

 

Their replacement policy states you will get either a refurbished or new model and the shipping confirmation email said I would be receiving the tracker only so I should keep my original charger, straps and any accessories, so expected a refurbished one. But it turned up on Wednesday and was a brand new one in the original sealed box. And I don't need to return the old one either, so pretty good stuff.

 

I used a Garmin Vivofit for a couple of years before getting this and that also ended up having to be replaced under warranty but with them I had to send it to away to be assessed first and got refurbished one in return.

There is a thread somewhere for heaping praise on companies that have done the right thing.

And warm! Good for an old person with arthritis. Low taxes too! Convenient for jetting off to other clean, polite, efficient, orderly shopping destinations like Dubai and Switzerland.

 

Can probably grow proper orange Halloween pumpkins year-round!

dont forget the power it has to control everything it's citizens can say or do.

Fortunately its citizens have no desire to say or do anything since they have been marching in step since birth.

If your benchmark(s) for success matches up with their benchmark(s) for success, then that's the ideal place for you. Why would you want to live anywhere else?
