    Engadget Review

    The Fitbit Charge 2 brings some much-needed updates to the popular Charge HR. It can now track your distance by tapping your phone's GPS for more accurate pace info and will automatically detect that you're working out after 15 minutes. It also has new modes to analyze activities such as weights and interval training, as well as biking and running. Plus, its bigger screen means you can see more stats at a glance. Even though it still has a bland design as well as a poorly implemented meditation feature, the Charge 2 is nonetheless a solid successor to what was previously our favorite activity tracker.
