All device settings are carried out in the application or on the manufacturer’s website, the latter is more interesting, as it is more visual and has a bit more options. In addition, there is its own social network that allows you to share information and achievements with other users - this has always been FitBit's strong point.

The bracelet received protection from moisture - you can swim in the pool, but it is not recommended to conquer the deep sea. The tracker features include tracking sleep, steps, distance traveled, and calories. Moreover, the last option is implemented most interestingly - the device understands what the user is doing (running, swimming, sitting) and changes the principle of counting. To get the most accurate information, it is recommended to enter data on food taken per day.

The feature of the bracelet is a very small capsule that fits into a minimalist strap or can simply lie in your pocket. Users note that the bracelet does not interfere at all and is not felt on the hand. In the kit there are two belts of different sizes of the same color.

This device got into the rating of the best bracelets due to the presence of its pressure measurement function.

A pleasant solution was the charging mechanism. The manufacturer took into account all user complaints about cradles and the need to take out the capsule. In this case, you need to unfasten one of the parts of the belt, under it is hidden the most ordinary USB plug, which can be inserted into a smartphone, external battery or power supply.
