To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My last Fitbit was the original Flex model, which lasted a good few years. I wanted something with a decent battery life, there's not much point having one of these devices if it spends an hour a day in a charging dock (like my Smart Watch, which doesn't really cut it as a fitness/sleep tracker) I saw that this model also had HR tracking, so I thought that would also be worth having - what I didn't realise was that the HR tracking is _continual_ - it's always tracking, which given the long battery life, I find incredible. I was slightly concerned about the lack of a physical button (the older Inspire model had a clicky/tactile button), but the one onboard the Inspire 2 is just as functional, it has haptic feedback so you can feel when you've pressed it and it's just as functional as the older style button. The touch screen is very responsive and glides through the various displays with ease, but ultimately a device like this is for data gathering, any number crunching will be done on a phone/laptop, but the relevant real-time data points are all there (current HR, steps for day, active minutes, calories burnt and so on) The wristband is basic but very comfy (and more importantly, stable - it doesn't slide/roll around the wrist), my initial thoughts were to replace the strap with something else, but after a few days of wearing it, I've realised that's it's just about right. The included (year long) FitBit premium is a nice touch, I'm not sure how much benefit I'll get from this over and above the standard FitBit plan, but time will tell. Some of the premium features seem to include longer-term data analysis, so maybe this will prove useful. But I've set myself a reminder to cancel the automatic payment continuation next year, just in case I'm not using it. Overall very pleased, the unit is put together really well and they've clearly honed the design over many years/iterations, it seamlessly integrates with your phone's app and was a breeze to setup.
I'm a bit surprised to read reviews on here saying that it's stopped working or doesn't sync...or doesn't work with iOS 14.
I've only had my Inspire 2 for a few days of course but so far everything works exactly as it should - even with iOS 14. The sync takes about 3 seconds every time and I've had no instances of the FitBit refusing to do anything.
You speak as you find so I can say...the Inspire 2 works perfectly and does everything I want it to!
i've owned pedometers before and i track my steps accurately on my phone, however i had been recommended fitbit so i thought i would give the new inspire 2 a try. the fitbit inaccurately records steps. i can clock up 1000 steps by driving for an hour with the fitbit on my wrist. when i take it off my wrist and put it in my pocket it is more accurate ,however, doing this makes the HR feature completely useless ? whats the point of having a step counter if its so inaccurate. dont be fobbed off by fitbits "wear it on your less dominant wrist " and reset the device. its all excusese to try and profit from a very bad fitness tracker.
Just spent 2 hours onto Fitbit helpdesk, as the fitbit is not getting notifications from my iPhone HR. It is running IOS 14.0.1. I was told after a lot of messing around that there is a problem with Fitbit getting notifications from IOS 13.4 and above. They had no answer to when this will be resolved!!!!! Beware
This is my first Fitbit. I've been pleasantly surprised at how well designed it is,how easy to use and what a great range of features it has. The app is good, pretty intuitive and we'll written. The sleep timings surprised me how accurate they were too. There has been nothing negative with the Inspire 2. Switching the wristband was easy to remove the existing one, a little harder to fit the new one but I got it in the end. My personal preference would be for a squeeze to release clasp on the wristband rather than the buckle as it'll be taken off fairly frequently but there are third party options for that. The app seems to get the balance right: not too complicated but full of useful detail. It's also clear about privacy and allows you to export your data (I'm so pleased they're not childish in restricting exports as some companies do). It does feel rather like an iPhone app even though I'm on Android but that's not a big deal. Overall I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a device like this.
Keeping track of steps haven't used the the fitness premium yet just been walking and jogging more already clocked up 36 miles in four days and a 1/2 Only thing is you still need your phone for miles conversion and keeping track of what you eat and drink for those new to fitbit as I was still to understand how everything works will try and check out the premium for the year as free for yea. ps comes small strap attached and a large strap detached in box
I was looking randomly for a fitness tracker but not at a huge price. I saw the Inspire 2 was about to launch. The price was decent and covered everything like heart rate, sleep, calorie burning etc. I've used it today at the gym and it's been invaluable to track my heart rate and calorie burn!
The app is really great and you also get free access to Fitbit Premium for a whole year! I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking for a great fitness tracker at a great price
A simple and non intrusive feel, much better and comforting than many previous wearable that I had used. The sleep detection and steps are much more accurate than others. The battery life is the one that made me surprised. 10 days and going on one charge, an amazing one.
