    • Geek Squad Replacement Protection

      from Stratford, ON on October 15, 2018

      This is a review on the replacement protection warranty. WATCH OUT!!! Best Buy use to have the best warranty, I have many products from best buy including a digital camera, SLR camera, a MacBook, two other laptops, an ipad, an ipod, and a fitbit...HOWEVER, with this warranty they did not specify that you have to call geeksquad, that you deal with NO ONE in store about it...at purchase I specifically asked if this included accidental damage/scratches, etc. and was told YES... IT DOES NOT!!! It only includes hardware defects - this also apparently doesn't include its ability to sync properly as I've been having some issues with this as well ... I then asked for a refund of the warranty then as if I would have known this I would not have purchased it - lets be real when it comes to hardware/defective products more often than not they blame the customer and say that warranty will not cover it - so I would NOT have purchased it if I would have known this!! I am very disappointed with Best Buy and find Geeksquad useless and unknowledgeable!!! Will be shopping elsewhere in the future!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Luv the Alt

      from Haliburton, Ontario on May 27, 2017

      This is my 3rd Fitbit. I bought myself one of the early Fitbit products. It didn't do much but I liked having my steps kept track of. Next I got an Alt. I Ike's the style and it kept me up to date with family members as well. My 3rd one now is the Alt HR. First my main reason for having a fit bit, is because I compete with MYSELF! I do not worry about others, I maintain my results against myself and for myself. The Alt HR now shows my steps, sleep and heart rate. I still compete with myself and try to maintain for myself.

    • Best looking fitness tracker with heart rate.

      from VANCOUVER on May 6, 2017

      Most fitness trackers with Heart rate monitors are big and bulky, this one is slim and stylish. It lacks a couple of the nicer features of the Charge 2, such as the stopwatch, the automatic gps pairing to your phone when you go for a run or bike. However if you'd like to track steps and calories burned, and not have to wear a bulky watch, this is the watch for you.
