    I got my fitbit charge a few weeks ago. I'm really liking it, it's my first one.

    Got the charge for Christmas. The calorie burn counter is very inaccurate. It bases the calories on the movement/swing of your arm. On average it says my calorie burn in arount 1100 calories and on my workout days it's about 2300. Impossible. I really want it to work for me, but it also has challenges linking my steps to my MFP, but if it's so inaccurate, I would rather it not do so anyway. :( Any other users experiencing these issues? I'm considering taking mine back. :)

    Hi I just joined this group today to see if anyone was going to acknowledge this!
    I work out every day heavy weights, etc. it says that I burned 80 calories. So....the reality is that it is a very expensive step tracker. Only counts the steps and not a heart rate monitor. I also wore it during a spin class where I burned 400 calories and it didn't register anything. LOL! This device seems like it is for walking/running and not for anything else. I will try to return mine as well. What I really need is a heart rate monitor.

    Both my husband and I have the HR's. got them in Feb. He's been averaging 35,000 steps a day and before I got sick I was up to 15,000. Today he did 46,000 steps. The only problem we've had with them is we tend not to sit down to much. :)

    Got mine through my ins co's health plan. I keep forgetting to wear it. :(( It's a new thing.

    It's just a step counter, and I really don't exercise that much yet. Working on it, but starting from Total Couch Potato. Plus, the winter weather doesn't help. No snow, just doldrum days. Thank God for spring!!

    Just bought a FitBit Charge yesterday. First full day today. I only slept 5-1/2 hours last night. I knew I slept poorly, but now I know how poorly!

    Had a Fitbit Flex for over a year and just upgraded to the Charge HR. Love it, but I am a little concerned with how little sleep I'm getting based on what the Charge has monitored.
