this looks good..
improved over the original charge HR..

i have been wearing the charge HR1 and recently the rubber band broke..
so to see the introduction of interchangeable bands is a godsend for me..

wish the notification can include whatsapp..
but dun think whatsapp notification is included..

yes, whatsapp notification is what many people is asking for ...
does anyone know if any fitness band have that function?

how about MSFT BAND 2? (not sure about Band 3 - coming in 1-2 months time)

will upgrade from charge HR to this when avail

hopefully <S$199

having seen a charging cable is included i am relieved, assume the same ease of charging as HR. the stupid charging design of blaze really puts me off.

pricing very impt as not too far away is a samsung gear fit 2. aw well since i already invested an aria, i guess fitbit is here to stay

I am surprised that they didn't include a colour screen though.

Look nice style, anyone know it is available in SG and pricing.

By the way, COMEX coming in Sept and good chance to get good prices.

hi,
based on past events, (Comex, PC Show / IT show), does Fitbit have special promo?
additional discount? 10% off or do they throw in any freebies?

thanks

yes that is true, currently only the "flagship fitbit - surge" has it
not even Blaze has it

does anyone know, pound for pound - in similar price range or specs
other than MSFT Band 2, Garmin Vivoactive HR+ which other fitness tracker come close to Charge 2

thanks

it seems blaze and alta will get updates for 3rd party apps notification..

hopefully Charge 2 will have these features when shipped..

awesome! personally i think just need some software update ... (via Fitbit app?)

found another article ... think Charge 2 is able to display ... but fitbit is not saying as yet

http://www.wareable.com/fitbit/fitbit-charge-2-review

Fitbit Charge 2: Notifications

The Charge 2 isn't a smartwatch and it's not trying to hide this fact. While you'll get notifications, you can't reply to them or review them on the fitness tracker they simply disappear.

Call, text and calendar notifications can all be displayed on the Charge 2 but your phone must be nearby. It's unclear right now if the tracker is able to display third-party notifications from social media.

Read next: Which Fitbit should you buy?

When receiving a call or text, the Charge 2 buzzes briefly then shows the phone number (and/or name) of the person calling. Texts show a clipped version if the message is long, and emojis can't be seen at all.

Other notifications you'll see include reminders to move, which debuted on the Fitbit Alta. It's the same concept where every hour you'll get a little message telling you to take 250 steps.
