Alleged Leaked Images Depict Fitbit Charge 2 and Fitbit Flex 2

Alleged leaked images of two new upcoming products from Fitbit were published by TechnoBuffalo yesterday.

The images claim to show promotional shots of the wearable company's Fitbit Charge 2 and Fitbit Flex 2, both of which have been rumored since trademark applications for the Mark II devices were discovered earlier this year.

The image of the Fitbit Charge 2 shows a larger screen than its popular predecessor, offering more space for information to be displayed. The listed features include PurePulse heart rate tracking and interchangeable bands, both of which didn't feature on the original Charge, which debuted in 2014.

The Flex 2 remains display-less like its previous incarnation, although "Swim-Proof" is listed in the included features, whereas the original Flex was only sweat, rain, and splash-proof. Also, the Flex 2 has vertical LED lights instead of the familiar horizontal ones.

Otherwise, the features appear similar to the originals, with smartphone notifications and multi-sport tracking already featured in Fitbit's lineup.

While Fitbit revealed in its recent earnings call that it would be releasing two new products this year, the company gave no specific date. However, some of the promotional images give a date of November 27. Pricing remains a mystery, although Fitbit tends to sell its wearables significantly cheaper than most smartwatches.

Had a Charge HR and now a Blaze - Fitbit is doing a very good job, in my opinion.

I really like my fitbit, but between my wife and I we've purchased 3 new fitbits total and have had 4 replacements sent to us due to issues with charging, screens not working or it just flat out dying.

To their credit, we received no issue getting them replaced.

Had a Charge HR and loved it. Now I have the Surge and love that too. I'm a fan of Fitbit and like their iOS app too. However they have one major shortcoming and that is a lack of macro nutrient tracking in the app and on their forums are a lot of complaints on that topic. It's sad Fitbit hasn't addressed such a major, yet seemingly simple thing such as this.


Very true. Great products but when i read the community there, it's shocking to see Fitbits lack of support to enable the users to do the work for the company and input nutritional information. People are willing to do this for free! Simple fix for Fitbit if they were to take action. I hope apple come out with a wearable with a nutrition/food database

I love my Charge HR. Perfect size, weight, battery life and functionality. If I had one complaint it is that the final finish isn't quite as good as it could be. It's certainly not terrible though.

In my view, Apple Watch and FitBit are two different categories of product. It seems both can operate alongside each other.

I see nothing here that addresses the completely insecure way in which they sync data to your device or computer, nor if they've addressed the random total battery drain, nor anything stating that these devices won't fall completely apart, like my first three Charge/Charge HRs have. If it weren't for my gf being so stubborn about her Fitbit Flex and refusing to try any other solution, I'd probably still have an Apple Watch.

That being said, they do replace them completely as long as you're under warranty.


The other issue with FitBit bands are they start irritating your skin after a while. The band also will start coming apart and will fall right off your wrist over time.

They have been. And they've nailed the social aspect. Though I think steps being the primary metric, while fun, isn't as important as something like active calories, especially for workouts like swimming, cycling, weight & strength training.


Guess so, I had a Nike FuelBand since day one and loved how Fuel Points worked. Steps are simple, but I tend to looks at Steps, Calories, Hours etc altogether now. It's not perfect but it's just about good enough thanks to heart rate monitoring.

Been wearing a Fitbit Charge (HR) for almost two years now. IMO it's still the most comprehensive fitness tracker out there. Never lets me down. Great iOS app too, my Fitbit Smart Scale syncs into it. Looking forward to the Charge 2, hopefully longer battery life.


Yep I also love how Fitbit connects to MyFitnessPal. It's brilliant, actually.

Yes, I believe it does offer it and some people do use it and the Fitbit app to track their food and exercise.


Honestly, MFP is world's better for food tracking. I would suggest you just switch to that to track your macros. It will import your calories into Fitbit's app.

Another place mentions Nov 27th for the release date based on the marketing material
