The Fitbit Flex is one of the most compact fitness trackers offered by Fitbit. 

The actual tracker itself is only about an inch long, and weighs next to nothing, even when inserted into its band, which can make it a great fitness tracker for athletes.

Once charged, a Fitbit Flex can offer about a week of biometric tracking, alarms and reminders, and other data. And getting a full charge should only take about an hour, so go ahead and connect the Flex the next chance you get.
