I bought a New Fitbit
Friday, May 22, 2020
Hi everyone! I have been wanting a Fitbit for years. I finally splurged! Charge 4 Special Edition. I like that it has a 24/7 heart rate monitor and built-in GPS.
Con: It would not sync with my phone. But letting it charge for a little over and hour (and good vibes from my Best-est Spark friend) and it is now connecting! This problem is mentioned many times in the Fitbit community.
'Pay from Your Wrist': Hmm, I'm not sure I'm gonna like this feature. I think for safety, I will connect a virtual card number with a LOW limit on charges. Citibank lets me do this. It will probably come in handy.
'Four stylish Clock faces': It's giving me two options so far. lol Oh, my misread. It says Charge 4 comes with different clock faces.
'Notifications at a Glance': I hope I can set it to texts only. There are times I just don't want to be reached by phone. While hiking is one of those times.
'Sleep Tracking and Score': I don't know how this will improve my sleep. I get lousy sleep as it is, and I have surgery in a couple of weeks so I don't expect it to improve. I can see if changes in my bedtime routine make a difference. Wake up to vibrations on my arm? I think that would be similar to my present wake up to purring cat on my head. lol
'Exercise with Heart Rate and built-in GPS': Ahhh, finally. The reason I choose this model! Does the mapping feature help me get back to my car? What? I need to feel the buzz to earn minutes? Well, my doctor will be happy to know I am monitoring my heart rate again.
'Tracking': Steps, Distance, Floors, Calories, Active-Zone': I am very competitive, even with myself! This will be some great motivation!
I will update this as I develop my love/hate relationship with my Fitbit. What I need from you! Name suggestions! What should I name this little guy?
