Wear Charge 5

Wear Charge 5 around your wrist. If you need to attach a different size band, or if you purchased another band, see the instructions in “Change the band” on page 13. Placement for all-day wear vs. exercise When you’re not exercising, wear Charge 5 a finger’s width above your wrist bone.

In general, it’s always important to give your wrist a break on a regular basis by removing your tracker for around an hour after extended wear. We recommend removing your tracker while you shower. Although you can shower while wearing your tracker, not doing so reduces the potential for exposure to soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, which can cause long-term damage to your tracker and may cause skin irritation.

For optimized heart-rate tracking while exercising:

  • During a workout, experiment with wearing your tracker a bit higher on your wrist for an improved fit. Many exercises, such as bike riding or weight lifting, cause you to bend your wrist frequently, which could interfere with the heart-rate signal if the tracker is lower on your wrist.Fitbit Charge 5 Fitness tracker (6)
  • Wear your tracker on top of your wrist, and make sure the back of the device is in contact with your skin.
  • Consider tightening your band before a workout and loosening it when you’re done. The band should be snug but not constricting (a tight band restricts blood flow, potentially affecting the heart-rate signal).

Note: If you have trouble connecting to GPS on Charge 5, see the related help article.
