May 7th 2015 at 9:32 PM

As people get more and more health conscious, devices that guide and monitor the progress of their

health has become a necessity. Fitbit is one of the companies that consistently and innovatively heeded

the call for more responsive and creative devices, particularly in monitoring a person’s hear rate.

The Fitbit Charge HR is able to effectively and efficiently monitor a person’s heart rate as they wear the

device. Why the need to monitor the performance of your heart? A heart monitor shows what type of

exercises makes your heart really work hard. If your heart is exerting so much effort for even the most

menial of activities, then it could be a sign that you are out of shape or you may have underlying health

problems. On the other hand, for people who have been constantly active, a hear monitor displays what

physical activities are more challenging for their heart and what exercises they can just coast through.

The HR uses an optical heart rate sensor to check on your heart rate while it comfortable around your


Another advantage of the Fitbit Charge HR is that it’s other components complements it’s built in heart

rate monitor. With a full understanding of how your heart performs, you can track which activities will

burn more calories, and depending on your fitness goals, lose weight. The HR also has a sleep tracker

that allows you monitor how many hours your sleeping and waking hours. This is a vital component

since health does not just involve how active you are, good health also means sufficient and quality rest.

What also separates the Fitbit Charge HR from other wearable health devices is its diminutive size,

design and user-friendliness. When worn, the HR is not bulky or intrusive. It comes in trendy colors, so

the more stylish health enthusiasts can easily pair it with their workout clothes or with their causals. The

HR can easily be connected to Bluetooth devices, and synched to a smartphone of laptop. The fitness

tracker will automatically sync when you open it using a mobile device. It can also be configured to

transmit data periodically as you go about your day. Why the need to transmit data? The shared data

goes into a data base in the Fitbit website, so users can have statistical information, in the form of charts

and graphs, about their activities and determine their progress or lack thereof.

Another worthwhile feature of the HR is that it can display incoming calls from a smartphone when it is

connected via Bluetooth. It also comes with GPS.
