I bought this from Amazon.. mainly for the 24/7 HR monitor. In that aspect it does very well. However, the step tracking, the "going up stairs" stairs tracking etc is farking abysmal. It's a widely known problem, and fitbit isn't doing anything about it. They will tell you to "put it in drive mode", as that may be where you're getting more steps, etc.


About the ONLY thing that has helped is switching the setting from non dominant hand to dominant(wear it on my non dominant). Much less steps tracked for no reason(will add shit while you're just sitting there moving your arms...), but unless you're buying it for the reason I did, do not buy it till they fix it, if they do at all.

Battery life is very good, been off charger for 3 days now, and it's at 82%.
