I think Salisbury are selling these out cheap

All mainstream optical heart rate sensors are not great compared to the polar/Garmin chest strap sensors Mio the best the likes of Microsoft, Fitbit, Apple etc not great if you are serious about heart rate tracking ... if you just use it as part of the sleep tracking algorithm then optical accuracy is fine and a far more practical solution than a chest strap

I have heard that the Charge 2 had issues with recording steps/distances...some of the reviews were showing it way off. This may have been fixed with a software update but for an expensive activity tracker to fail on its primary usage is pretty **** poor!

To be honest, this encourages people, i.e. me, to get off their 4rses and do something. The heart rate monitor is crap, and it was crap on the charge hr before it too. Anything over moderate exercise and it wont record correctly. I use this mainly to count steps, and get notifications from my phone. I don't really care if it records 10000 steps, and I've only done 9500.

That's your choice of course and, as you say, at least it gets people off their butts which can only be a good thing. But, as the makers have admitted there is a bug that means it records incorrect steps...and it costs over £100...and I've had an Omron stepometer for a few years that is far more accurate and cost far, far less, I find this product unacceptable. Now, if there is a confirmed fix that solves this problem then it's all good...but still a bit pricey for what it is!

I love mine and I'm very happy with it.

Price went up
