Do not buy this. It is an exceptionally poor product with a garbage heart rate sensor. How fitbit allowed such an inferior product to be sold I have no idea. The side button regularly activates unintentionally when pressed against the wrist but fails to press when you try to. The screen regularly fails to register swipes. But by far the most egregious design failure is the heart rate sensor. The whole workout it registered way off as demonstrated in the image.Professional reviews all made the same points but i assumed they were overstated or were software fixes that would be worked out. I was wrong. I will be returning the watch and getting a Garmin.

Upgraded from Versa 2. Love the new features including ECG and Blood Oxygen Monitor.

I was so excited to receive my Fitbit sense since I suffer from SVT and like to keep close watch on my heart rate…what a huge disappointment. For the money spent it was so hard to use and not accurate. I sent mine back and will be looking into an Apple Watch 5 or 6.

Pretty much a letdown overall. My main disappointment is that it doesn’t come with the ECG or the Google Assistant available! These were the two main functions I bought it for, and was advertised that it had. It can be hard to find my phone and sync at times. The sp02 feature only works with one specific clock face so it must be in use before you go to bed at night for it to work (bummer).The new charger is really good and easily used, and changing bands only takes only seconds. Fit and finish are impeccable.I was told be Fitbit’s tech support that there was a 45 day return window from the “date of purchase”, which was the date that you pre-ordered. I didn’t actually get the watch for about a month from that date though! That means I’ve only got about a 15 day period in which to evaluate it then! Plus, Fitbit charges your card or account the day you place the pre-order, that sucks. Most companies charge you only when an item ships, the decent thing to do. I’ve found Fitbit’s tech support agents are very hard to communicate with because English is apparently not their first language. I’m still debating sending my unit back depending upon how long it takes to get these advertised, but not provided, functions up and running as well as numerous little bug fixes, but I’ll have to hurry! By the way, I purchased mine from Fitbit, not Amazon.
GPS doesn’t work. It states “GPS connecting…” then, after a minute, “No GPS Signal”. I’ve used GPS to track my daily bike rides on my Versa 2. I was hoping, by getting the Sense, I wouldn’t have to lug my phone around with me anymore.I’ve contacted Fitbit Support. The first representative wasn’t able to assist. They escalated the issue to a “special team”. Now I’m waiting on the next tier of support to reach out to me.I’m leaving a 1-star review for now, seeing that the major reason I bought this device — built-in GPS — doesn’t function at all. I’ve been a Fitbit customer for years (having the Versa 1, Versa 2, and smart scales) so I hate to say that I’m disappointed in this product. But I am extremely disappointed.

I got watch yesterday. It is a mystery how to get readings of anything. I got so I can track myself more, this thing so far is doing significantly less then my amazfit bip. All negative reviews are right.It is cool you added all those sensors but it is next to impossible to read them. I barely can get heart rate, watch is unresponsive.Unless I can figure it out quickly, I might be returning it. Previous fitbit was amazing experience, I don’t know what they did to make this

Spare yourself the waste and buy something cheaper. Its interface is sloppy, slow, it loses connection frequently and it fails to add a cc for payments… not greater than a band you can get for 200 less. The app is horrible (first time I use fitbit) I bought it as a gift so I’m returning it, I just pitty its owner. It demands a hideous amount of time to setup and an ugly more to get it to work if you’re unlucky to drop comms phone to watch. I got frustrated just by using it for 10 minutes.It lacks value for its price.

So far the watch itself seems OK, but Fitbit burned me as a customer in the set up process. Not once, but twice during set up the user is presented with upsell screens (insurance and premium service) for which there is only an OK button to move on. You have to back out of the screen and dismiss a warning to avoid buying the upgrade and then, the watch did not leave set up mode until after updating (warning may take more than 20 minutes, and yes, 90 is more than 20. Ninety minutes during which you have to leave the phone on the Fitbit app’s update screen and so cannot use your phone)
