    Here’s a blurb of what this Fitbit does –

    Fitbit Charge 3 heart rate and fitness monitor.

    On top of the fitness tracking you’ve come to love, it keeps a running tally of how many minutes you’ve stayed active, how comfortably you sleep, and more to give a comprehensive breakdown of your daily wellness.

    It then automatically syncs stats to your computer or smartphone for easy tracking.

    And while you’re working out, it delivers call, text, and calendar alerts so you never miss an important moment.

    Delivers means you get “alerts”. You can’t interact like talk or text back because it’s not a smartwatch :ladywink:

    Fitbit has a lot of sports fans – I’m not one :teehee: – but aesthetically speaking I think the Rose Blue Grey option looks cool – :blink:

    I had an interesting discussion recently about how these trackers measure heart rate. The light goes in through your skin to measure blood flow, a process called photoplethysmography.

    That’s a big word! Apple Watches use it also.

    Anyway, it’s not always very accurate, but it’s supposed to be pretty good, though nothing surpasses an EKG or other chest monitor if you have a heart problem.

    I agree that the rose/gray is a really pretty option. And the face on this looks nice and clear, so it’s easy to read.

    I don’t have a FitBit but I do like wearing my fitness tracker when I’m on the wagon and walking, that is.  :x-running: But in the winter, I tend to ride bikes or do yoga because I can’t walk for long when the cold hurts your face.  :freezing1:   :x-spinning:

    And wearing a Ninja ski mask to protect the face will just scare everyone else :rotflmao2:

    Me too. I get hive-y in the cold and I pretty much hide everything except my eyes :rotflmao:
