Some of my thoughts on my new FitBit have come up a time or two, as you regular readers already know (my full-out FitBit review is still going to happen, don’t worry), but something I haven’t mentioned is how annoying the charging cord is – it’s not even a foot long! Whenever I plug my FitBit in, it’s just dangling there in mid air. I remedy this by using an old shoebox for it to rest on, which is not an ideal use for a shoebox in my opinion. I prefer having my electronic devices on a table top of some sort.
A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to try out this cord, specifically for the FitBit Charge HR, and let you all know my thoughts. I already knew I was going to love it. Having 3 feet of charging cable would make plugging in my fitness tracker that much easier. No more dangling behind the dresser, or only being charged in the kitchen next to the sink and greasy stove – which were the only places that the supplied charger would let me plug my FitBit in with a flat surface nearby.
So, yes, I love this charger. It is so much more practical and convenient. Why would the people at FitBit think an itty charger was a good idea? One thing to know about this charger though, it doesn’t come with an adapter, just the cord. This was fine with me because it can be plugged into any USB adapter and we probably all have plenty of them lying around (the FitBit didn’t come with any kind of adapter either). Anyway, should you have the same frustrations as I with your original FitBit HR charger, you can find one of these here.
*I was sent this product at no cost in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way for referrals, all opinions are my own, and are 100% truthful.
**Edited to add – After three months of using this charging cable, the connection to the FitBit has become loose. It doesn’t click in securely enough to consistently give a full charge. This is somewhat disappointing as I have given away my original FitBit charging cable. Maybe it’s not as good of a cable as I originally thought.
