    Nice thing, does what it's supposed to do.

    Well, we're dealing with a funny thing here. I think fitbit has a name in this area. I myself don't fall for those 'Chinese-looking' gaudy colored screens from the east, those of the competition trackers. So whoever misses that should not be with this fitbit. I don't see that as a negative point. I want a gadget that does what I bought it for. No frills.
    The screen is small yes, but I can see what I want to see on it. Anyone who finds that a negative point should therefore not buy this Fitbit.
    Yes, there is no NFC and no GPS. If you miss that, you shouldn't have bought it. It seems to me that you should not indicate that as negative points, as I read in some reviews.
    I am satisfied with the gadget. I was looking for something more than basic tracker and I found it with this Inspire 2. The battery life is phenomenal. I have my doubts about the pedometer. Not when you go for a walk, but during the day. I then seem to be taking a lot of steps at home, more than I think myself.....but oh well. So doubts.
    This is a fitbit for a 'normal mover' like me. So every day a brisk walk or a long bike ride. And that's nice to keep track of in the app via GPS on your mobile. He does that accurately. Swimming is also possible. Bit difficult now because the pool is closed again. Because I'm a prude, I think it's a bit of a shame to use it in the 'dirty' chlorinated water. So no review data on this.
    Nice bridge to the app. For the big athletes among us, it offers a lot of information. For the ordinary mover also fun and interesting data. About your sleep and about your activities etc...and those data seem accurate to me. I have therefore mentioned the Premium subscription as a plus because there is a lot to be gained from it and because it is free for a year. Nice bonus. At the same time, the subscription is also a minus. You will pay for it after a year. I think too much. Tip for everyone: set on your phone NOW that that subscription is not automatically renewed. You can't forget that, unless you want to keep the subscription of course.
    Finally (to say the least): the silicone strap that comes with it as standard. It fits nicely, nothing to say, but it is a real 'dust magnet'. Especially if it's black. Not handy for a gadget polisher like me.... you keep on taking the cloth in hand. It's a small thing, but I want to mention it anyway. On the other hand, you can buy all kinds of other straps with it. I don't intend to.
    Conclusion: we have a fun thing here that does what it's supposed to do a little more than basic. If you're missing anything on it, you shouldn't have bought it. Yes right? Just look further and spend some more money. It's that simple.

    • Battery life
    • Screen readability
    • Design
    • Integration with Runkeeper is missing

    For a long time I had doubts about buying a tracker for sports. The relatively low price (and the year of Fitbit premium) convinced me to order this. The first few days of wearing it I had to get used to the strap, but after changing for the supplied larger strap, it has become a lot more comfortable and I no longer notice the Fitbit. The screen is easy to operate and the sensors on the side register touch well. In daily use, the notifications from apps on your phone are very nice and more than easy to read on the small screen and you can set which app you do and do not want to receive. The reminder to walk 250 steps an hour at 10 a.m. I can do without (and I can probably turn it off) when I work from home. The coffee is simply not far enough away, unfortunately. Then the sport that I actually bought it for. During your run, the most important data can be read, such as distance, heart rate and duration of your training, and once you are back home, the Fitbit app also shows a lot more. I would have liked to see a better integration with Runkeeper because I normally use that app to keep track of my workouts. Hearing my heartbeat every kilometer would have been nicer than checking it manually. That's a problem all Fitbits have with all apps so it is what it is.

    The last point I would like to highlight is the battery life, which is really bizarrely long. Out of the box, the Inspire 2 still had 50% battery and it took almost a week to drain. The 10-day battery life sounded quite asburd to me, but that's not an exaggeration.

    • fast charged

    I've had this Fitbit for a week now and I'm very satisfied. First of all, I was very happy that the Fitbit was charged extremely quickly and that I could use it quickly. The installation via the telephone was done in no time and I could therefore fully focus on "how does something like this work". What I notice after 1 week is that the battery lasts really long, after almost 10 days of which I didn't wear it for 1 night (I was very disappointed when I saw it in the bathroom in the morning) the battery is now 40%.

    Despite I have very narrow wrists and often wear children's sizes in jewelry, the watch fits well. I like to wear a watch tight on my wrist so that it doesn't spin constantly but after a few days I started experiencing this, irritation and a pressure point. I had to make it looser and what I normally find very annoying, I don't find it annoying at all with the Fitbit. Probably because you just don't realize you're wearing a watch.

    I also like that I can track my sleep and my heart rate. The kitchen timer in the kitchen? I don't use that anymore! I can now go anywhere I want without having to keep an eye on the kitchen timer because the Fitbit will vibrate until you turn it off.

    The downsides I've found so far is the fact that no music can be played on it, so you're still stuck with your phone while exercising.

    The irritation of the strap on my wrist.

    That if you like to receive your notifications etc on the watch you should always have your Bluetooth on and I notice that the battery of my phone doesn't like that.

    And finally the silicone strap, you can see pretty quickly after 1 week that the matte strap quickly becomes shiny. I don't find it a nuisance myself, but I can imagine that someone else does.

    • Relax for a while

    • Sports activities
    • GPS track
    • Notifications come in too late
    • Not able to pay

    1 year free premium subscription from fitbit with all options and explanation about your day/night rhythm. It really helps me to get/get enough sleep, even with irregular shifts.
    You can also take a moment for yourself between work to relax and then continue completely zen again. Without the premium subscription, you can choose from 2 or 5 minutes of relaxation, with the watch vibrating when you have to inhale. I had no idea it was nice to do that for a while and what are 2 minutes in a day?

    Thanks to the pedometer and the heart rate monitor, I am more motivated to go for a walk for half an hour in the evening to be able to get my steps for the day.
    I absolutely love the ivory color, it just looks super fancy and I'm really happy with it!
    Two straps are also supplied, one for the narrow wrist and the other for the wider wrist. Everyone has been thought of.
