Fitbit question

So my significant other got a fitbit HR for himself and he loves it! I did some research and I am ready to buy one for myself next week. I just recently joined the gym and I am buying a FitBit Charge (not the HR) to motivate me getting fit even more. I checked my phone and it does not have Bluetooth 4.0 only 3.0+HDR according to it's specs. I did some research and it looks like if I don't have an Android or iPhone I can sync to my PC using the USB cable and a downloaded software for syncing, correct?

 

Also reason why I chose FitBit over FitBit HR is a price decision as it's everyday price is $109.99 and it's hard to find a sale on the HR models (it's almost at $200 after taxes since Hayward Taxes are 10%)

Re: Fitbit question

Thoughts....

  • Love the HR feature on my Fitbit Surge
    -HR monitoring automatically recognizes I'm in walk mode
    -HR monitoring does a better job knowing when I sleep and don't (I have sleep apnea).
  • I think you can sync with your laptop's bluetooth.  I do this with my Surge when my phone is not handy.
  • I need encouragement.... Fitbit does this
  • they do say that the average activity tracker is used for 6 months, before being abandoned.  I've kept mine to be used daily for nearly 2 years.

Some say the HR is not accurate.  For me... it's better than nothing.  If I want accuracy... invest in an oximeter.  However it will not be convenient to wear as fitbit all day.

Re: Fitbit question

I went to Southland Mall in Hayward and they had a Best Buy Mobile store in the mall. Upon looking in there, it looks like they sell those devices so next week, I think I'll buy one. Closest Best Buy is Union City and that's a bit of a bus ride to there.
