Samsung Gear Fit 2 vs Fitbit Charge 2 — which is better for you?

These 2 devices cost the same, which of the Gear Fit 2 vs Fitbit Charge 2 makes the most sense for you?

If you have an iPhone, then this is an easy decision for you because the Gear Fit 2 is only for Android.

If you have an Android device, then I recommend the Gear Fit 2. It has many more features — some that are very important to me like answering and rejecting calls, timers, and accurate sleep tracking.

The battery life of the Charge 2 is longer, but that is to be expected because the Gear Fit 2 screen is color and touchscreen compared to the Charge 2’s black and white and not touchscreen.

The Fitbit’s app and its socialness may be important to you (it is not to me). If you know a lot of other people with the Fitbit and you want to have fun competing with them, then the Charge 2 may win out.

  1. how long does the battery normally last on the gear fit2?

  2. all the listening 2, 2, 2, 2… is a headache. just say Samsung and Fitbit. lol

  3. I am Samsung Gear Fit 2 user for almost a year and i think about switching to Fitbit Charge 2.
    Here is why:
    1) Gear Fit 2 DOESN'T include heart rate in calculation of burnt calories. It estimates burnt calories based on your BMR and adds to that number calories which were burnt during workouts (calories which were burnt during workouts calculation also doesn't include heart rate). If you are trying to lose weight, this is major drawback.
    2) Gear Fit 2 measures heart rate every 10 minutes and only if you are still. Even when I am sitting at the desk, GF2 thinks that I am moving and skipping the measurement. FC2 is measuring heart rate every 5 seconds in any situation.
    3) Battery: Gear Fit 2 battery works 1 day with always-on display, 1.5 day with always-on display turned off and "i am looking at my watch, turn on the screen" gesture turned on, 3 days with that gesture turned off and 3.5 days in "power saving mode". FC2 battery lasts for 4-6 days based on reviews.

    You should buy Gear Fit 2 only if you really need those smart features more than accurate workouts tracking.

  4. Wrong info given the Gear fit 2 does work with Iphone!

  5. half of this video is what literally sold me on it lol. i was debating between this and the fitbit charge and saw this one in action and was able to make a choice. then literally went up to my work a few minutes after cuz we sell those and i was off today and got one for a great price haha. thanks! i absolutely love mine and have no regrets, and i love the changeable faces and the awesome mario ones i downloaded for it too

  6. hmm, no mention of the FUNCTIONS (calorie, heart rate, nav, etc.) except for sleep monitor, or did I miss something?

  7. Is there an iPhone app that works with the Gear Fit 2?

  8. based on your review I bought the samsung gear fit 2 for my wife. She has a LG smartphone. Th S health application from samsung is not compatible …
    So I can she see her sleeping in a application? She has got a message from her sleep but she wants to analyse it. She has also the fitbit charge 1 where see can see it in the apllication. any suggestions?

  9. Love the fit 2 the screen is gorgeous & the notifications are the best features but don't like that the stopwatch only goes up to 60 minutes then stops?
