Fitbit has just unveiled the newest installment of their popular activity trackers, the Fitbit Charge 5 Health and Activity Tracker. This new device builds on all the things that have made previous models so popular, like heart rate monitoring and an OLED display that makes it easy to see your activity at a glance, while also adding new features like automatic activity tracking and notification support from your smartphone. It’s not just another fitness tracker it’s the ultimate Fitbit yet.
What are some of the great features?
Fitbit Charge 5 has an OLED display that shows real-time insights into your activity like distance, pace, calories burned, active minutes, floors climbed, steps taken, and heart rate zone. You can customize the display to show only the data you’re interested in and easily switch between left and right-side views to get a better read on your activity. The Fitbit Charge 5 will automatically track your activity throughout the day and will vibrate when you’ve been sitting too long or when a goal is reached. You can also set automatic activity goals for daily, weekly or monthly activities, which will vibrate when you’ve achieved them, and provide you with a badge or congratulation message on the OLED display.
The overall design is sleek
The Fitbit Charge 5 is available in black or white and has a sleek, lightweight design. It’s available in small, medium, large and x-large and comes with a slim black wristband. The strap is a soft silicone that’s comfortable to wear and has a small hole that you can thread a small lanyard through if you’d like to wear it on your wrist. The silicone material is supposed to be comfortable enough to wear all day.
What about battery life?
The Fitbit Charge 5 has a battery life of up to 5 days per charge which is pretty impressive. It takes roughly 2-3 hours to fully charge the device and the small, lightweight lithium-ion battery is contained in the underside of the strap. The small hole in the strap is where the charging cable fits and it comes with a small travel charger. The OLED display shows how much battery life is left so you always know when it’s time to charge it.
The Fitbit Charge 5 is a well-designed activity tracker that offers a number of features that make it stand out from other fitness trackers on the market. It offers automatic activity tracking and heart rate monitoring that works well and provides you with real-time insights into your activity levels throughout the day, which is always helpful. The OLED display is easy to read and shows you all the important information you need at a glance and the Fitbit Charge 5 has a great battery life so you can track your activity without having to charge it every day.
