JD - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
I loved my FitBit Charge 5 when I bought it in Jan, 2023. It helped motivate me with tracking my exercise routines, heart rate, step counter, etc. Really helped my sleep hygiene. But then a few months ago Google bought it and "upgraded" (downgraded) the app which was no longer so user friendly and also didn't track my sleep as reliably as it used to. Unless they fix the app, I'm likely to look at alternatives for my next fitness tracker. Too bad. It really had been excellent.

Took away certain features I liked, wanted, why I bought it, like no more how many stairs you climb, no more fireworks, disco balls when you hit your daily goal unless you go premium. Now has payments screen which I don't want on my wrist, which is annoying because if you click on it by accident, hard to get out of it have to wait, just want to look at the time. My Google calendar is on the Fitbit now, which I didn't want. I don't want alerts on my wrist as well, I have other avenues for it. Take the calendar off, it goes back on. Google keeps bugging me to switch my Fitbit account over to them. The postives are it is in color now finally, and the design is sleek. But I bought mine when it was still Fitbit, not Google owned. Going to another brand next go round. I just want a fitness tracker, that is it, not calendar, payments etc

Hi, DP. We're sorry to hear that your Charge 5 stopped working. If you haven't tried yet, restarting the tracker may resolve the issue: 1. Connect your device to the charging cable. 2. Press the button located on the flat end of the charger 3 times, pausing for 1 second between presses. Then wait 10 seconds or until the Fitbit logo appears. But if the issue persists, please contact us on our help page so you can share with us more details of the issue.

LindyBoo - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I like that the Fitbit Charge 5 tracks swimming. However this purchase replaced a previous purchase of same model, which was less than 6 months old (I did receive a refund for that). So far my new Charge 5 seems to require charging more frequently than expected although I have tweaked the settings to increase battery life.
1 reply from FitBit Team team - 5 months ago
Hi, LindyBoo. We're sorry to hear about your Charge 5, which requires charging more frequently. We appreciate your effort in trying to fix it. To be of help, please restart your Charge 5. To do so, connect your device to the charging cable, then press the button located on the flat end of the charger three times, pausing for 1 second between presses. Then wait 10 seconds or until the Fitbit logo appears. Meanwhile, the length of time your Fitbit device operates depends on how frequently you use it and on various settings. Examples of high-battery-use features include: GPS, always-on display, a large number of notifications each day, third-party clock faces, animated clock faces, or many timers. I suggest that you disable one or more of these features. For further assistance, feel free to contact customer support to fix the issue.

MoxiFloxi - 5 months ago
I have had an overall good experience with this Fitbit. For context, this was an upgrade for me from an Inspire that was several years old. I like that this Fitbit is an in-between from the ultra-basic step trackers and full-on smartwatches (for me a smartwatch face is too large, with too many features, and too pricy for what I want). All I wanted is a mid-range Fitbit that gives me good step tracking and heart rate tracking, and that is what I got. I’d say the notifications functions on this are not perfect, but good enough for me as I don’t like checking my phone compulsively outside of what I need for work anyway. I’d say it tracks my HR best when I’m on my bike and my hand position isn’t changing much, it doesn’t seem to track quite as well when I’m lifting weights, but that could be me not being as observant of it when I’m lifting. I get roughly just under a week of charge on this when I don’t remember to charge it regularly. Overall I’d say it was worth it at a sale price, not sure I’d pay the full price on this one.

This product only lasted me 4 months. This is the second time I have brought this product, and it won't change. I do not believe it is waterproof for cardio. I like the tracking part of the app, but not the watch. I wouldn't recommend this product. It is a waste of money.

Hi, there. This is definitely not an experience we want you to have. The Charge 5 is water-resistant to 50 meters. They're designed to be swimproof and stand up to even the sweatiest of workouts. Please contact us on our help page so you can share with us more details of the issue. We'll do our best to assist.

“Find my phone” is useless! Sensitivity of screens is unpredictable. Sometimes you have to tap hard, sometimes soft., sometimes doesn’t respond at all. I understand it’s a stripped down tracker but the little it offers is not reliable at all.
1 reply from FitBit Team team - 5 months ago
Hi, Dw18901. Sorry to hear that your Charge 5's display is unpredictable. Please try giving it a restart by pressing the button located on the flat end of the charger 3 times, pausing for 1 second between presses. Then wait 10 seconds or until the Fitbit logo appears. For the 'Find Phone' app issue, please note that your Fitbit device must be connected (“paired”) to the phone you want to locate. Also, your phone must have Bluetooth turned on and be within 30 feet (10m) of your Fitbit device and the Fitbit app must be running in the background on your phone. If the issue persists, please contact our Support Team for further assistance.

I loved the watch. It died within a few months and was a hassle to get warranty replacement. Note I was very mindful and took good care of it. Now the warranty replacement has died just out of original one year period. Junk, what a waste of resources and $. I loved the functionality and size but if it doesn’t last it’s useless.

Despite the fact that the Charge5 is supposed to be immersible, it is NOT. Not even to 1’ for approximately 2 minutes. When I reached out for help, I found that FitBit doesn’t honor warranties, even when their product fails. Buy a different fitness tracker, this one is super disappointing.

Malfunctioned. Screen died after a year along with not keeping a charge. Suspected updates led to the device malfunctioning. Warranty was not there when needed, only an offer to buy a new device at 35% off, which I wouldn't risk the money for it to happen again. I switched back to my 10yr old Pebble watch. I would highly recommend that brand even though discontinued.

Please, please, do your research on FitBit before purchasing this. We purchased for my college daughter for her birthday gift. She is a high level performing musician at a music conservatory. Within 48 HOURS of wearing this, she was in extreme pain during the night with numbness, tingling and shocking pain in her wrist and 3 fingers. Immediately switching it to the other wrist, we thought maybe it was too tight…. As her pain started to subside a tiny bit, within 12 hours, she was feeling twinges start on the other hand and it was NOT tight AT ALL…. We took off the band completely and it was considerably better the next day, proving that it was 100% the cause. However, still 4 days after, she is experiencing some mild after effects - pain that has affected her career and job. We returned and will be seeking legal help if needed. Please, if your arm or wrists are vital to your career, please read on FitBits own website some of the precautions and read reviews, lots of them…. I would give this 0 stars if I could because this should be illegal or at least have a serious warning on the packaging.

Simply couldn’t get it working. Couldn’t get it past power on screen. Charged it fully. Connected it. Disconnected it. Reconnected. Charged it again, let the charge drain. Started over. Searched for online troubleshooting. Simply never worked. Online reviews suggested it was a dud. Wouldn’t have even worked as a paperweight. Thankfully target took it back. Was a Christmas present from my husband. Band was a new and attractive design, but I needed an activity tracker, not a bracelet. Would have been my 4th or 5th Fitbit. Returned it and ordered a new charge to replace the old charge instead. At least I know it has more than a 50/50 chance of working.
