I've been using the original Fitbit Flex for over 2 years, and it has survived swimming, kayaking, rock climbing, and day-to-day activities. The tracker is very accurate, and this version also knows when I'm bicycling, rowing, swimming, or running... which makes exercise monitoring so much easier. This newer version is lighter, slimmer, and guaranteed to be waterproof (more than the original). So far I'm liking it, but I also do use a band-wrap to ensure the tracker doesn't unbuckle and fall off accidentally... that's how I lost my first Flex. I cannot recommend the band wraps enough, and at least the Flex2 also has replacement bands that are more secure and fashionable. Finding one that latches like a watch is ideal, especially for anyone who is very active!

Fantastic tracker upgrade
I wouldn't consider myself a very "tekky" guy, but the flex 2 is very easy to use. I have been able to use all the options that it has available with ease. Band is so comfortable that throughout the day I forget that I am even wearing it. App is simple to navigate and is packed with good information.
Fit Bit 2
I really like my fitbit2. All the important items came in the box; there was a question whether or not it had a charger with it or not and it does. It was easy to down load the app and set it up. The band is a little tricky to put on and off by yourself but I have managed just fine. It is adjustable and feels fine when wearing it. I recommend this product.
Tracks swimming. Comfortable to wear.
I got the Fitbit Flex 2 to replace a Fitbit Zip so that I could track swimming. I swim laps at least 3 times a week. The Flex 2 has exceeded my expectations. Lap tracking is quite accurate and the device automatically recognizes when I'm swimming laps. Step Counting accuracy seems similar to the Fitbit Zip that the Flex 2 replaced. The wrist band is very light, I don't really notice that I'm wearing it. The band is secure and easy to put on and take off after you learn how.
My daughter received one as Christmas gift. After a week of trying to sync and updating the tracker on 5 different devices, we returned it to the store and got a new one. It updated and sync'd and is working without issue. My daughter swims and it converts swimming to steps and active minutes. She is happy with it.
