Do you trust buying refurbished items?
Depends on the source

Depends on the source, and the warranty.
I'm currently using a refurb Apple MacBook Air 2 (purchased from Apple), and a refurb Fitbit Charge HR (sent as a replacement for my original Charge HR). Both have warranties essentially identical to those of brand-new items, and I trust both companies to make good on them.
(It's my first refurb Apple product. I've been buying Apple since 1990 for all my computer & mobile products, but I always bought new until now. My daughter has much more experience with refurbs and has been recommending them to me for a long time, so I decided to give it a try.)
