I Got a Fitbit Inspire 2, But We'll See

The 2021-2022 Fitbit app displays walking 6,734 steps. There is a circle with two feet inside it with the steps on the low area below the circle.

Hi all, in this video, I go over some of the reasons why I went with the Fitbit Inspire 2 activity tracker over some of the other brands. I go into some brief details about the Fitbit inspire 2, why I didn't buy Garmin over Fitbit, elaborate a little bit more on GPS, and then talk about the price briefly. Anything can happen at this point.

Hi all, here is a quick update after three weeks of using the Fitbit Inspire 2. I was thinking of replacing my Fitbit Inspire 2 with the Fitbit Luxe. We'll see.

Well, I'm starting to collect data, and the syncing is fine. 

I've had the Fitbit on my wrist day and night, with the exception of taking it of after showers. 

I find it's still feels bulky during sleep. What do you do. 

Overall, smooth sailing.

Is the Fitbit Inspire 2 Comfortable while I Sleep?

I thought the thinner Fitbit strap would be more comfortable than my old Polar m200, but the answer is no, not really. There is no skin irritation or anything like that, it seems my body doesn't like devices on my wrist when I'm sleeping (makes sense). Hopefully, there will be better Fitbit sleep tech in the future.

The Charger Clips
Well, it's been about a week or so with the Fitbit Inspire 2, and there's an area of concern when it comes to the charger. There are two little clips that clip onto the back of the Fitbit, and they feel a bit fragile. They may get worn out over time. I looked up the charger on the Fitbit website, and the price wasn't too bad.

All right, so the Fitbit Inspire 2 activity tracker came in the mail. I finally had a chance to give it an unboxing and take a look around. I was actually quite surprised, how slim the device is, it's a little tough to see that in the YouTube video.

So far, I'm enjoying the minimalistic design, and I didn't realize that there were two bands that come with it. There's a larger band and a smaller band which are both removable.

The only issue I had was linking the activity tracker to the app. I found it was a little buggy, the app was not responding, so, the ultimate solution was just to uninstall the Fitbit app and reinstall it. Everything seems to be working fine now.



I did create a second video after the unboxing just to show the progress, I changed some settings. And I also checked up on the water resistance.

The only issue of concern is the charger. There are two little clips on each side of the charger, they look a little thin, hope they last. So, we'll see how everything goes.

Happy Walking

Going through some of the points that I make in the video above. I have had a polar device in the past, so I was comfortable there. I've heard wonderful things about Garmin, and I've also heard wonderful things about Fitbit.

A few reasons why I leaned towards Fitbit was because Fitbit is pretty much a health and fitness company. After looking up Garmin on Wikipedia, they seem to really focus on navigation and GPS.

My thoughts at this point are neutral. I don't have any real expectations for the Fitbit device. I will just try on the Inspire 2 and hopefully, it'll work out.

I purchased the Inspire 2 from Fitbit's website. The total was just under $100 Canadian, and shipping was through Canada Post. The experience was fine.

Currently, I have the Fitbit app on my phone and I've been exploring all the features. I did notice that there's a free section and a premium section.

I do like one of the features on the Fitbit app which is called MobileTrack. This allows me to track my steps by just using my phone.

Unfortunately, I find for some reason the feature is a little bit buggy. It will start tracking steps normally, and then over time, it freezes and stops counting steps.

I've had to unpair the MobileTrack feature and then re-pair it to the phone. I did that a couple of times, and I also had to uninstall the Fitbit app. So far, right now, it's working fine.

Hopefully, things will change when I have the designated Fitbit inspired 2 as the main device.

We'll see how the Fitbit will work in 2022. It might be one of the staples of my walking gear, if not, well then I'll have to go and look at other options.

Happy walking.
