Fitbit Flex 2
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.
