I’ve had my Fitbit Inspire HR for over 5 weeks now, so I thought it would be a good time for a little review. The Inspire HR is a great introductory fitness tracker (it’s my first) but it also enjoys good reviews from fitness tracker enthusiasts who have owned multiple devices. I have been very happy with my Fitbit and hope it lasts me for many more months to come. Here are some features of the Inspire HR.
The Inspire HR automatically recognizes a variety of exercises:
- Bike riding
The time spent doing each activity is automatically synced to the Fitbit App. You can connect the device to your phone’s GPS to see real-time pace and distance on your wrist during walks, runs, and bike rides.
Sleep tracking on my Fitbit is one of the most interesting things I have enjoyed with the device. Based on your heart rate, it can tell what stage of sleep your are in: REM, light, or deep. You can set a nightly goal for sleep and the App will show you if you met your goal.
Heart Rate Tracking
In addition to using heart rate to track sleep, the Inspire HR also tracks your heart rate all day long. You can get an accurate reading of your resting heart rate and also monitor your heart rate during exercise. The App then tells your what “mode” your were in: fat burn, cardio, and peak.
Fitbit advertises the battery life as five days, but I have been charging it once a week and it hasn’t died on me. When it needs to be charged, it shows an exclamation point on the main screen.
The Inspire HR has definitely helped me on my fitness and weight loss journey. The device syncs to the App, which then syncs to my Weight Watchers App.
If you are looking for a way to track your heart rate, sleep, steps, and activity, then the Fitbit Inspire HR is a great way to accomplish that goal.
