I loved the things the Charge does, and I enjoyed keeping track of my steps and food. . However, I never could get the sleep monitor to work well and the closure was very difficult to get closed, and would come off occasionally. I wore it continuously for a year and then the back started pulling away from, or coming apart around, the electronic part. I was always very careful with it, as I had heard this could be a prob, but it just kept getting worse and pretty soon would not charge anymore. I had gotten it for a gift and felt it was a very expensive gift and should have lasted much longer. At first I really wanted to replace it with the same one or a better one with a better strap, but I am having second thoughts. It is a lot of money to spend on some thing that will have to be replaced in a year. It was fun while it lasted, and I really did love it during that year. I would still recommend it to try. Just be aware. Maybe wait until they improve the design.
