A recently surfaced Fitbit Charge 5 leak suggests that the new wearable will boast an impressive array of improved features. The Charge 5 has been subject to multiple leaks in the past. Fitness trackers played a vital role in popularizing wearable devices. Despite the skyrocketing popularity of smartwatches, fitness trackers occupy a considerable portion of the market share. Fitbit is the leader in the fitness tracker segment.
The consumer electronics company launched the Fitbit Charge 4 in March 2020. Earlier this month, noted tipster Evan Blass shared a slew of official-looking images of the fitness tracker, revealing its design. The wearable appears to sport a color display. Furthermore, the tipster indicated that the new wearable device will be able to track the wearer’s heart rate. Aside from that, it can determine various standard parameters including calories burned and numbers of steps taken.

Fitbit could be gearing up to unveil a Fitbit Charge 4 successor dubbed the Fitbit Charge 5.

The Charge 5 does not look anything like its predecessors. It has curved edges, coupled with soft angles. The straps appear less aggressive and a lot smoother than earlier versions. However, the most notable change is the full-color screen. Earlier models came with the monochrome display. Regrettably, the leak doesn’t shed light on the tracker’s hardware. However, it suggests that the device will come with multiple sensors.
What Else Do We Know?
It will have the GPS and the company’s own EDA for stress measurement. For those unaware, the ECG sensor monitors heart rhythm and notifies users if there are arrhythmia problems. Moreover, you can go for a premium subscription to get personalized exercise recommendations. Also, you’d be notified when it is time to rest and recover via sleep tracking and guided meditations. The Fitbit Charge 5 could retail for $179 in the US and hit the store shelves on October 23. Furthermore, the fitness tracker will come with a SpO2 sensor that monitors blood oxygen.
