Google-owned wearable company Fitbit has released its latest fitness tracker Fitbit Charge 5. The fitness tracker has been released worldwide, including in India, where it costs around Rs 14,999. The Fitbit Charge 5 has a smaller design and a better display than the Fitbit Charge 4, along with other features including an on-wrist ECG app, SpO2 sensor, skin temperature sensor, and an EDA sensor for stress tracking. The fitness tracker is now available for pre-order in select regions but will soon be available for purchase in India during the autumn season.
Fitbit Charge 5 has been launched in three color options – Graphite/Black, Platinum/Steel Blue and Soft Gold/Lunar White. The housing of the fitness tracker is made of aluminum, glass and resin with a silicone strap. On the sides of the Fitbit Charge 5 are stainless steel rails that double as sensors for ECG and EDA. The Fitbit Charge 5 features a 1.04-inch AMOLED display with 450 nits peak brightness, an always-on display, and no buttons. The fitness tracker is said to be 10 percent thinner than the Fitbit Charge 4 and has a display twice as bright as its predecessor.
The Fitbit Charge 5 comes with 20 watch faces and is equipped with GPS + GLONASS, a SpO2 sensor, skin temperature sensor, an optical heart rate monitor, as well as NFC. The fitness tracker is waterproof up to 50 meters underwater. Fitbit Charge 5 comes with Daily Readiness Score feature for Fitbit Premium customers. This score tells users whether they should work out over the course of a day or focus on recovery. It is analyzed based on the user’s activity level, sleep for the past three days, and heart rate variability.
