The most noticeable change in the Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate Fitness Wristband Special Edition, is the bigger display. It is four times as large as the previous two versions, making it easier to view the displayed information. It also makes it easier to handle the information relayed from the connected smartphone. The new screen uses an OLED display that is black and white with an adjustable brightness. The screen is motion sensitive and turns on when you move your arm close to it.

The Fitbit Charge 2 is slender and comes with a comfortable elastomer strap, that uses the standard watch buckle for easier use. The bands are interchangeable depending on your preference, with a few choices to choose from in terms of colors and material. The fitness band works with the Fitbit app that is available on iOS and Android. You simply need to create a profile and then select the types of goals you are looking to achieve. The app should guide you through all of this and everything else. The Bluetooth pairing allows for easier syncing between your activity data and the app

Another noticeable change is in operating the Fitbit Charge 2 heart rate fitness wristband. Unlike its predecessors, the new model uses some tweaked measurement, thus ensuring that you get more from your workout each day. This is made even better by the integration of trail-based challenges within its functionality, to ensure that you are motivated to work out more.
