Fitbit Flex 2

The Good The Flex 2 is slim and swim-proof, can track basic fitness data and supports a variety of accessories, including pendants.

The Bad It lacks a display and the more advanced features of other Fitbit trackers. Lacks heart rate tracking. The LED lights can be confusing; battery life should be better.

The Bottom Line The Fitbit Flex 2 doesn't have all of the bells and whistles of other trackers, but it's finally swim-proof, and it does the basics and it does them well.

A low-key, wear-anytime tracker that's swim-proof (at last!)

At last, there's a Fitbit that's swim-proof!

But in exchange for that long-overdue swim-friendliness, other features are lost. There's no heart rate tracking, and it doesn't have a display. Are you OK with that compromise?

The Flex 2 looks, in many ways, like the perfect slim tracker from Fitbit that we'd wanted for a while: It's like Fitbit's version of the Jawbone Up2. It's $100 (£80 or AU$130 converted) and will begin shipping in early October. It comes with a rubber strap in both large and small sizes, but the beauty of the Flex 2 is its customization.
