I have a flex and I've had it for over a year.
I'm getting the charge hr for christmas as I know they are heaps better.
They were $155 at **** smith lasts week.
I think the charge hr is the best fitbit on the market at the minute!

I have the charge hr. It was $168 at JB hifi 3-4 months ago. I have the purple one. Now they've released more colours I want the turquoise/greens one. Can't justify the expense just for a pretty colour though lol. It's great. It does steps, heart rate, distance, calories and works out how many sets of stairs you climb. I love it. I probably don't use it to its full potential either. You can also set yourself little alarms on it, so say if you work a desk job and want a reminder to get up at 10am each day and go for a walk around the office/stretch etc it can tell you through vibrations. Also vibrates when you reach your target steps. It's a feel good thing

I also love how it alerts you when your phone rings and has a caller ID, I can leave my phone on silent all the time now. (I have a charge, couldn't justify the price of a chargeHR at the time, esp seeing I already had a flex, love my fibits!) it's much better being able to have the time and the display of data on the charge vs the flex which only had the dots. I find the sleep data to be useful too.

Love it, love it, love it!!
I have the Charge HR and its amazing. **** Smith has a sale on at the moment and I think they're around ~$150ish.
Having the heart rate monitor is great - gives a lot more accuracy into the calories burnt during the day and during exercise.
I wear mine 24/7 except in the shower (I use this time to charge it).
Has made a big difference in learning about how many calories I burn each day - especially the realisation that I need to be exercising on my days off work - because pottering around the house does not much at all!
I also use it to track my water intake which helps me make sure i'm drinking enough.

Hey, I think they are great devices however, I couldn't continue using mine after just two days I had pains running up my arm that I was wearing it on. I swapped arms and the same thing happened.
My boss also had the same issue with his.
It turns out that the amount of radiation they emit is deemed a safe level, however some people are more sensitive to the exposure of it over a prolonged time.
Just be mindful.

I have the charge HR and love it. The only negative I find is that it's battery loses power quickly, which I think is due to the HR. I don't use it to its full potential because I'm lazy but it's awesome!
I'm getting my mum and brother a charge each for Christmas.

I have the surge which is around $300.
You can choose to track specific exercises which I like.
My husband has the charge hr which is great for him for everyday wear with no specific tracking.
