I’ve had my Fitbit Ultra for quite some time now and have been wondering just how long does the battery last?

Well as the Fitbit website says 5-7 days but a little independent testing never went a miss so lets find out!

Update – If you don’t feel like reading the whole post my Fitbit Ultra lasted a whole 18 days without a recharge!

The testing methodology is that I will fully charge the Fitbit and keep a track on (and publish here) a basic overview of the day, I will record every nights sleep and also point out any gym sessions ect.

So here goes-

Day 1, Monday Evening @ 1806hrs – Now fully charged

Day 2, Tuesday Afternoon @ 1641hrs – Battery showing as high, tracked a full night of sleep and about 5,000 paces during the day

Day 3, Wednesday Evening @ 2348hrs – Battery still at high, another 7,500 paces on top of sleep from last night

Day 4, Thursday Evening @ 2240hrs РBattery now at medium, 8,000 paces today with sleep tracked from last night

Day 5, Friday Afternoon @ 1745hrs – Battery at medium, 6,000 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 6, Saturday – Battery at medium, 14,200 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 7, Sunday Evening @ 1849hrs – Battery at medium, 16,400 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 8, Monday Evening @ 2232hrs – Battery at medium, 8,400 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 9, Tuesday Evening @ 2223hrs – Battery at medium (yes still!), 12,000 paces today with gym session and sleep tracked

Day 10, Wednesday Evening @ 2220hrs – Battery at medium, 5,500 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 11, Thursday Evening @ 2358hrs (up playing Crysis :P) – Battery at medium, 7,300 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 12, Friday Evening @ 2251hrs – Battery at medium, 9,500 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 13, Saturday Evening @ 2352hrs – Battery at medium, 13,300 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 14, Sunday Evening @ 2318hrs – Battery at medium, only 3,500 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 15, Monday Evening @ 2353hrs – Battery at medium (and starting to wonder if its running off of some form of cold fusion), 7,300 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 16, Tuesday Evening @ 2233hrs – Battery at LOW!!!, 5,300 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 17, Wednesday Evening @ 2304hrs – Battery at low, 7,500 paces today with sleep tracked

Day 18, Thursday Evening @ 2238hrs РBattery at low, 8,900 paces today with sleep tracked

I’m afraid that although the battery is not completely drained that here I must end my test…I will be away from my PC for the next 5 days and as such won’t be able to update this post or check the paces/battery status and so its only fair to quit while I’m ahead.

      The problem with doing that is its very rare that I spend that amount of time near a pc to be able to upload the results every day – either way 18 days is still very impressive.
