Charging and Battery Life
Battery life is always important. I hate having to charge a tracker on a daily basis and the GoBe2 fell into that category. I consistently got about 24 hours of use before needing to stick it on the charger. After 24 hours of use, I would typically hit about 10% battery life remaining and it would bug me to charge it.
That said, it doesn’t take long to charge. In my experience, it took a little less than an hour to fully charge the GoBe2.
What I found worked out best is to take it off before bed and let it charge while I’m getting ready to go to sleep. This basically keeps me going and gives my wrist a chance to breathe a little bit.
The charger itself is a tiny proprietary dock that connects to the back of the GoBe2 and is held in place magnetically. It receives power via micro-USB cable and is among the more user-friendly designs I’ve used.
Nothing is perfect and the GoBe2 is no exception. Having said that, I really like it. I find that the insights I gain using the GoBe2 help me to make better decisions in regards to my weight loss journey and overall health. I can take a look at the app and see where my energy balance is. If it’s positive, I need to increase my activity level. Maybe go for a walk or skip an extra snack.
I really, really appreciate the hydration tracking. That’s hands down my favorite feature that the GoBe2 offers. I love the auto-calorie tracking but I could track that manually. It’s very difficult to always know how hydrated I am. I’m able to stay on top of that much easier now.
I wish the heart rate was more accurate during exercise activity but like I said, my main focus is on resting heart rate and this does a very good job of tracking my heart rate during normal activities.
At $200.00, it costs about the same as the Fitbit Versa, Gear Sport, Gear Fit Pro or the Biostrap. With the exception of the Biostrap, the other mentions are some form of smartwatch. This is not, nor will it replace a smartwatch. This is meant to help you gain valuable insights into your health. It’s meant to provide you with information that can help you make healthier choices in your daily life. What the GoBe2 does, it does very well.
The few things I didn’t like were far outweighed by the many things I did.
This is a great tracker for anyone looking to gain valuable insights into their body. I also think this is perfect for parents like myself, who are trying to make small, sustainable changes in their life, to improve their overall health.
I talk about self-care all the time on this blog because it’s so important for Autism parents to take care of themselves. I would have no problems recommending the GoBe2 by Healbe, to my readers, especially those wanting to gain insights that will help them take better care of themselves.
I give the GoBe2 by Healbe, a 4/5.
