fitbit -- it was no more than three beats per minute. which isn't big. but consumer reports noticed one exception. the fitbit charge h-r would give more inaccurate readings at higher intensity workouts depending on where that strap was put on the arm. if you follow fitbit's directions and wear the device in the place it recommends -- the monitor is accurate. while consumer reports says it will keep an eye on the fitbit lawsuit -- it says it will continue to recommend the fitbit surge and the fitbit h-r trackers. for consumer watch -- i'm mary moloney. > we'll be right back........///
