Fitbit unveiled new activity tracker wristbands called Charge 2 and Flex 2. The Flex 2 is a simple and slim activity tracker and is the first swim-proof wristband by the company. It is waterproof up to 50 meters and can automatically recognize when you are swimming. Let’s have a close look at features of Fitbit Flex 2:

It also includes new color-coded LED indicator lights to update you on daily step progress, notifications, messages, Facebook Messenger and more. It is waterproof and can survive in up to 150 feet of water. It comes in various colors: black, lavender, navy or magenta. You can easily slide it into a different band. Fitbit is also offering chic gold or stainless steel pendant accessories. It comes with a larger display and feels more like a premium device.
The tracker now comes with a handful of new and useful features. It is capable of automatic workout tracking. When you are sitting for too long, it nudges you to get moving.

Fitbit Flex 2 now includes a new VO2 Max reading to calculate your cardio fitness level.
The Flex 2 comes with a five-day battery life. Charging it is simple. You just need to remove the tracker module and insert it into the USB charger. The long-battery life is essentially a great plus.
