How to Wear Fitbit Charge 2
For all-day wear when you’re not exercising, your Charge 2 should usually rest a finger’s width below your wrist bone and lay flat, as you would normally wear a watch.
For optimized heart rate tracking keep these Fitbit wrist placement tips in mind:
1. Experiment with wearing the tracker higher on your wrist during exercise.
Because blood flow in your arm increases the farther up you go, moving the tracker up a couple inches can improve the heart rate signal. Also, many exercises such as bike riding or weight lifting cause you to bend your wrist frequently, which is more likely to interfere with the heart rate signal if the tracker is lower on your wrist.
2. Do not wear your tracker too tight; a tight band restricts blood flow, potentially affecting the heart rate signal. That being said, the tracker should also be slightly tighter (snug but not constricting) during exercise than during all-day wear.
3. With high-intensity interval training or other activities where your wrist is moving vigorously and non-rhythmically, the movement may limit the sensor’s ability to provide a heart rate reading. Similarly, with exercises such as weight lifting or rowing, your wrist muscles may flex in such a way that the band tightens and loosens during exercise. If your tracker does not show a heart rate reading, try relaxing your wrist and staying still briefly (about 10 seconds), after which you should see a heart rate reading.
Fitbit Charge 2 Wrist choice and dominant hand
For greater accuracy, your tracker needs to know which wrist you wear it on (right or left) and which hand you consider dominant (right or left). Your dominant hand is the one you usually write or throw with.
During Fitbit Charge 2 setup you’re asked to choose the wrist where you're going to wear your tracker. Should you later decide to move your tracker to the other wrist, change the Wrist setting. You can also change your dominant hand at any time with the Handedness setting. Both settings are found in the Account section of the Fitbit app or in the Personal Info section of your fitbit.com dashboard settings. Hope you enjoy with your new tracker. Advertisement
