The Fitbit Charge 2 is a model that exists, though only in the prototype stage at this point, but the company's wearables are gaining a reputation that involves their use in medical diagnoses (and possibly pregnancy in the future). And with the new Fitbit Sleep Schedule that lets you set sleep times and examine your progress for a better night's rest over time, now is as good a time as any to pick up the Fitbit Charge HR. Online retailer eBay is giving the Fitbit Charge HR for 33% off, reducing the price from $149.99 to $99.99.
The Fitbit Charge HR features an OLED display, heart rate monitor (hence the "hr" in "Charge HR"), active minutes, distance, calories, steps, caller ID/call notifications, in addition to sleep tracking, and an exercise mode. The Fitbit Charge HR lasts up to 5 days on a single charge, but you'll only charge your device for 2 hours (max) should you need to juice up before a run, walk, or exercise event.
There is one thing you should know, though: the Fitbit Charge HR has been known to provide somewhat inaccurate heart rate readings, with the Charge HR at the heart of a lawsuit against the fitness band (and now smartwatch) maker. Interestingly enough, it's also been discovered that the company's new foray into the smartwatch world hasn't been without its functionality quirks, either.
Well, for $99, you'll get a device that's as capable on your wrist as the phone in your pocket. And with such a sweet price point, what's the worst that could happen?
