The Fitbit Charge is not meant to be the successor of the Fitbit Flex. When it comes to physical appearance, Fitbit Flex is smaller and doesn’t have a display whereas Fitbit Charge is two times bigger and offer a OLED display. Both serve different target audiences and that is the reason why Fitbit Flex is still on sale.
*UPDATE 10th December 2014* Looks like Christmas came early for those waiting for the Fitbit Charge. It will start selling in Singapore from 19th December 2014. Fitbit Charge HR and Fitbit Surge are still on track for an early 2015 launch in Singapore.
Announcing the two winners of the Fitbit Flex Colors Giveaway which I held back on 7th October 2014. Since some of my friends have taken part, the winners have been being picked by Text100 (PR of Fitbit) to ensure fairness.
He is Andrew Yeo with this winning comment:
Thanks to Fitbit, I will be giving out two Fitbit Flexs worth S$129 to two lucky winners.
The two lucky winners will be able to choose their own color for their Fitbit Flex. You will be getting the actual Fitbit Flex tracker with your preferred Fitbit Flex color wristband accessory and not just the wristband accessory.
Some of you may recall that earlier this year I did a review on the Fitbit Flex. Just a quick recap, for those of you who don’t remember, the Fitbit Flex is a wireless activity tracker that allows the user to monitor and track all the fitness and lifestyle related metrics such as distance walked, distance ran, number of hours slept, calorie consumption, and calories burnt. It also comes with a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time.
The Fitbit Flex is the fourth fitness band that I own. I was seeded with the Jawbone UP24 (S$249), bought the Jawbone UP (S$189.90) and Nike FuelBand (US$149 = S$190). Among the four fitness bands, the Fitbit Flex in my opinion is the best one of the lot as it offers many features, making it the most complete product of its kind. The Fitbit Flex is also extremely lightweight (13g) when compared to the Jawbone UP24 (~21g), Jawbone UP (23g) and the Nike FuelBand (32g).

Fitbit Flex is a wireless activity tracker that tracks steps, distance, and calories burned. It is also able to track your sleep quality (how long/well you sleep, how many times you wake up). It also has a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time.
In Singapore, the Fitbit Aria is retailing for S$169 on Apple Online Store, so you saved S$51 but you have to forgo the 1 year warranty.
