The Design

There is noticeable similarity between the Fitbit Charge HR and the earlier Charge in terms of look. It sports a tiny black OLED display that shows information such as time and steps taken.

There is a button at the side for lighting up the display to see this information. It features a rubberized band, with the strap attached using a buckle-like clasp similar to that of a standard watch. At the base is a bulging optical heart-rate monitor.

Fitbit Charge HR comes in small and large sizes and with a proprietary USB dongle for charging.

Heart Rate and Exercise Tracking

The heart-rate monitor that comes with the Fitbit Charge HR is its main improvement over the Charge. It provides 24-hour everyday tracking of your heart rate. The heart rate monitor features green LED lights, which flash as heart rate data is being gathered.

The heart-rate technology used is Pure Pulse – the same one used for the Fitbit Surge – which starts automatically once the device is worn on the wrist. That’s in addition to regular tracking of steps taken, elevation and intensity of exercise.
