There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I specifically bought a fitbit tracker because it has some of the best heart-rate tracking tech and for health reasons it's important for me to keep track of my heart rate - I had previously used a charge 2 for this, and figured it was time to upgrade for the water resistance and GPS tracking. In that regard the charge 4 works great. The app is a little clunky and I have to refresh it several times in order to get the sync to work whenever I need to check my sleep/heartrate timeline, and I don't use the weight or diet tracking functionality as there are plenty of apps available on my phone which do a much better job should I even need them. However in terms of logging steps/calories/heartrate and sleep patterns accurately, while not looking as clunky/obtrusive as some of the other fitness trackers, I think the Charge 4 does a great job.
I noticed in some of the other amazon reviews people were upset that certain advertised features of the tracker (such as Spotify functionality) were not available when their products arrived, though that now seems to have been remedied as all those apps were available to me on the day my fitness tracker was delivered. Also worth noting that delivery only took 2 days even in the midst of the global pandemic, so that was nice (although has no bearing on the score of this review)
Overall it is a pretty good deal. You are getting so many functions like contactless payment, building GPS and so on at this cheap price level. The design is awesome too!
However, as an avid mountain biker, GPS accuracy in the bush is essential for me. I tracked my riding with Charge 4, and the GPS accuracy is terrible comparing with my previous Fibit Ionic based on the route on Strava. As a result, I returned it.
If I were a customer who does not care about GPS accuracy, I'd give it a 5 star for sure. However, if you are someone who wants a serious GPS tracker, stay away from it!
Now looking for something that is not Fitbit.
FYI - Beware of compatibility requirements for the Charge 4 - only Android 7 Nougat and later, Windows 10 build 1607 or later and Apple iOS 12.2 or later. This is not mentioned on the box.
All very disappointing.
The app is very complex and hard to use, the menus are endless with ambiguous titles, I still can't connect it to other apps for example. The touch controls are also finicky at best.
The step data is way off, my Fitbit kept accumulating steps as I spent the day working at my desk, by the end of the day it registered over 14000 steps, while my phone only counted 2600!
I also had hoped that continuous hear rate tracking would give me an accurate estimate of my calories, but if sitting on my bum could burn 2000 calories I'd be skinnier than a Victoria's secret model!
I can't really recommend this device to anyone and wish I hadn't wasted my money on it.
As per the Fitbit customer care, you need to have at least 80% charge on your tracker for the built-in gps to work.
Thats ridiculous! I missed the return window of 1 month and stuck with a overpriced tracker that offers nothing new compared with the cheaper ones.

Absolutely no chance of using this to track a half marathon, then...
Update:. Battery life seems to have become a bit better after a firmware update. However, it's the distance tracking that's now making it unusable. It's widely optimistic, with every run coming in 15-20% over the actual distance, checked against maps and Strava!
Initial set up frustrating appeared to be stuck on set up screen, but what I realised was to return to home screen, (watch face) you need to gently hold either side of the screen – this is also the key for everything else – if you are in one of the menus just hold both sides of the screen and you go back one level in the menu – finally getting back to the main screen
Easy setup, multiple display options, easy to use, GPS appears to be as accurate as apps such as ‘Map My Walk’ using the phones GPS
If using the auto detect activity the GPS does not activate, (so if you want a map, which is why I got it), you do need to manually select the activity you are doing
Display easy to read, depending on watch face and your eyesight, even in sunlight, rapid menus and intuitive once you get over the initial ‘how do I get back to the watch face’ GENTLY HOLD BOTH SIDES OF THE SCREEN.
Battery after two days is down to 56%, but that is probably down to me playing with it constantly finding all the bits and pieces it can do.
Overall delighted with it, (so much so just bought the wife one as well)
Nice neat device, has extra apps, including the contactless payment which was a doddle to set up, that I may or may not use in the future but does everything I hoped and would recommend
Have now had the charge 4 for a few weeks, still delighted with it, but have noticed a couple of things, if using the GPS for long periods (like a 4 hour walk), this does seem to drain the battery quickly and needs charging every couple of days
Also a couple of times after starting the exercise going the tracking has switched off, but I think this was due to me having the strap too tight so when putting my hand into a press up position, I was touching both sides of the screen, and it was going back to main screen.
I found, as others had on the internet, that my Charge 3 was becoming increasingly frustrating and pretty useless when calculating my running and cycling distances. Growing ever frustrated, I switched to the Charge 4 on hearing Fitbit had introduced an in-built GPS, in the hope of having relatively accurate data.
On these grounds, I am not disappointed. The GPS is really very good, particularly for what you pay. Having tested in on a number of different runs and cycles, predominately in woodland, I've found that it's very accurate (particularly in comparison to the Charge 3).
I'm not so bothered about the Spotify or pay features (if you're UK-based), which I know others are grumbling about. In my opinion, if you want these sorts of features, you should look for a smartwatch. I find these sorts pretty gimmicky / useless if you're looking for a fitness tracker which isn't designed to be a smartwatch.
I've also not had the technical issues which some seem to have.
The battery is definitely nowhere near as good as the Charge 3. I suspect this is because of the GPS - which they DO advertise. I've noticed I'm having to plug in my Charge 4 twice at least twice as frequently as the Charge 3 (going for at least 3 runs and 2 cycles with GPS per week). This can be a little jarring if you're used to the battery of a Charge 3, but considering the size of the device with GPS running, I think people are being too harsh on the battery life.
All-in-all, I'm pleased with the device. Fundamentally, it's not going to let you run or cycle for 4+ hours using GPS (particularly in GPS challenging scenarios). If this is a problem for you, look elsewhere, but be aware you're not going to find a device which is as slim and powerful. I'd recommend this device if you're looking for a slimline activity tracker which is GPS enabled, it reads your heart-rate, has a sleep-tracker and connects to a clever app. The price and quality seem to be near-unrivalled in the field, so I really do think there have been some overly strong criticisms of this device.
So, I order a new one and same again, the screen won't respond so can't be paired. Maybe I'll leave it another day again.
Either way, they just haven't been tested properly and aren't robust if they won't stay on your wrist!
