Fit­bit Flex 2

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

IS IT WORTH PAY­ING A LIT­TLE MORE?

THE ORIG­I­NAL, AND still ex­cel­lent, Fit­bit Flex is one of the more pop­u­lar ac­tiv­ity track­ers and can be picked up for under $100. But Fit­bit has now re­leased a new up­dated ver­sion, and while it costs $150 from the of­fi­cial store, it can be found on­line for as low as $130. There are also loads of dif­fer­ent wrist­band and pen­dant ac­ces­sories avail­able for the Flex 2, in­clud­ing jew­ellery look me­tal mod­els. The Flex 2 has a 3-axis ac­celerom­e­ter, but also packs a vi­bra­tion mo­tor for feed­back and alarms, and can pro­vide call and text no­ti­fi­ca­tions. The bat­tery lasts about five days and it has a five-LED in­di­ca­tor sys­tem. Im­por­tantly for many peo­ple, the Flex 2 is fully wa­ter­proof and can be used for swim­ming. The Flex 2 is one of the small­est track­ers we tested, and mea­sures in at just 31.7mm x 8.9mm x 6.8mm, and comes with two dif­fer­ent sized wrist­bands.

While the Flex 2 it­self is a great lit­tle tracker, the true value comes from the stand out Fit­bit app, which is clean, easy to use and cus­tomis­able.
