TOUCH OR TAP?
Only two of our three are touchscreen units; the other, you just have to tap
The Fitbit Charge 2 sports a super-crisp OLED black and white screen. Curiously, it’s not officially a touchscreen display, but tap it with medium force and it swishly spins to the next screen option. The Samsung Gear Fit2, despite having a fully paid-up touchscreen, can perform the same trick.
The Fitbit and Samsung are both perhaps at their most pleasingly subtle – to T3’ s eyes anyway – when the screen is blank. However, a quick flick of the wrist and the screen lights up, initially showing the time.
It’s a neat trick in theory, but also a touch annoying at night, when turning over in bed prompts the tracker to light up the entire room.
