Gadget : Fitbit Charge


Fitness bands have become trendy over time. While most people look for the cheapest activity tracker, the FitBit Charge is priced at Shs400,000. It is value for money. The device FitBit packed a small, OLED screen into its fitness band for real-time stats and a handful of notifications. The wristband is made of a flexible, elastomer material that’s bendy and soft. It has an annoying two-pronged clasp that wiggles into the many slots in the band.
The tiny OLED screen shows the time, steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned, and staircases climbed. It will also show any alarms set for the day. Just by a tap on the button or the band itself, and the display activates to show you the time. Each press of a button shows you a different metric. If you want more details, you can open up the companion app and see a full overview of each metric. The charge connects to your phone via Bluetooth and can store seven days’ worth of detailed motion data, as well as daily totals for 30 days. In addition to keeping tabs on your fitness and activity, the charge will vibrate to let you know you’re getting a call and even show you who’s calling.
