Fitbit Flex 2 review: Product Descriptions
Fitbit Flex 2 Review shows that the device is 30% smaller than the previous model, and with a much narrower and comfortable band. The bands come in a wide range of colors that includes; navy, magenta, black and lavender, thus ensuring the buyer is spoiled for choice. Also, the bands have a textured finish which makes it softer on the skin and long lasting.
Fitbit Flex 2 Review shows that the device has some similarities with its predecessor, with the button clasp still in play. No loop for threading the strap can make it a little tricky to fasten. This fitness tracker is however not limited to the wrists alone, and comes with a pendant accessory for wearing around the neck. Thus, providing you the desired sleep tracking and Smart track functionalities.
The Fitbit Flex 2 just like other Fitbit products, has the ability to pair with both Android and iOS devices via Bluetooth. This allows you to sync your activities with the app. The application allows customization through notifications from other apps like SMS, Facebook, or even WhatsApp.
The Smart Track feature automatically kicks in when performing different exercises like cycling, running, swimming and even longer-duration walks. Swim tracking, however, needs to be manually enabled before it can start tracking. Fitbit Flex 2 Review shows that the lack of a GPS, makes tracking distances during running difficult. Unlike other Fitbit products, this fitness tracker has no altimeter. The battery life is however quite impressive, and can last up to one week without charging.
