This is the first Fitbit gadget that takes “resting heart rate” literally. The Charge HR adds a continuous pulse monitor to the back of this fitness tracker, with two green lights measuring your heart around the clock. The results are fascinating, categorising workouts into fat-burning, cardio, or peak zones, and showing your heart rate during your sleep. Naturally, it also tracks steps, incline, calorie burn, and records sleep automatically, plus it delivers phone call alerts via Bluetooth and silent, vibrating alarms. Sadly, it is only water resistant to splashes and won’t survive a shower, but its subtle, well-built form and pulse technology is seriously impressive.
