I think we all have different reasons for wearing fitness trackers; some want to just track steps, some want to watch their sleep, and others are hoping it will remind them to keep active to hopefully lose a couple of those stubborn pounds. For me it is a little of everything. I am not delusional to think buying one of these will magically make me lose 20 pounds or make me an elite athlete, but I do think it is a good resource to help motivate you to keep moving and hopefully explain some of what you are feeling.

Overall the Fitbit Charge 3 Fitness Activity Tracker is a very good product, but is it worth around $140 from places like For me I would say yes. While there are flashier fitness trackers out there, I am not willing to strap a couple hundred dollar smart watch to my wrist and trim hedges or work on the car. You get a much more polished device than something like a Mi Band that is full of features and possibly has more to come (SpO2) in the future. In the short time I have had the Charge 3 I have learned more about my sleep and fitness than I did in two years with a Mi Band. So while the Mi Band was cheap and fairly effective, I am not so upset anymore that the sea took it away. This Fitbit Charge 3 is a much better fit for me.

Considering all of the Pros and the few Cons, the Fitbit Charge 3 Fitness Activity Tracker earns the "Recommended" award.
