We got our sin one these charge hr.....seems like a waste of money the instructions are non existent and the steps are off compared to other devises (iPhone). Battery is very short lived and has a really short charge cord. The sleep status is kind of like seeing a fortune teller. I would rather of tried the garmen touchscreen that is listed on S.D. honestly we are about to sell his charge hr on eBay before the stock falls drastically and the public is off this marketing wagon. Just my opinion of course but trying to give an honest personal review to try and help

I've had a Charge HR for almost two months now and don't agree at all. The instructions are included in the box and are very simple, once you have the Fitbit app on your phone everything else is automatic.

The steps may be off compared to an iPhone, but that doesn't make your iPhone correct. I have an iPhone 6+ and it records almost twice as many steps on some days as my Fitbit, but the steps it says I am making are highly unlikely. My iPhone has registered over 20k steps some days which is about 10 miles of walking with a standard stride. For comparison, my Fitbit will register around 10,000 steps that same day but I can account for that because I know my walking path (1/2 mile per lap of the path, I do at least 4 laps while at work on lunch).

Your iPhone has to do the best it can under a number of situations, but it is often just in your pocket. With the Fitbit they know it will be on your wrist and you can set if it is on your dominate or non-dominate arm, which improves accuracy. With the phone it doesn't know if it is on an arm band, your pocket, etc. Also how much the phone moves around in your pocket will throw the numbers off wildly (if the phone is bouncing around in a large pocket with cargo shorts or whatever).

I have counted my steps on a lap around our pond and then compared to the Fitbit and it was accurate within about 20 steps. My iPhone wasn't even close.

I also don't agree with the battery. I haven't had mine die on me yet, even when off the charger for a few days when we went up to northern Michigan for a long weekend. The charging cable IS short, but who cares? You can't use the charger while it's on your wrist, and you can get a USB extension cable for about 50 cents if for some reason you need a longer one.

Anyway, my review of the Fitbit is that I am very happy with it. Especially given the much larger customer base, I am able to do the challenges the Fitbit app provides with many of my co-workers and it helps keep us motivated. We have 5-8 people every week that participate. I don't know anyone with a Garmin fitness tracker and would lose this benefit which I think is one of the biggest.

To each their own, but I think you are placing too much trust in the iPhone tracking features.
