Fitbit Charge 5 is better than expected

The new Fitibit Charge 5 builds on the extended functions of the previous model and offers a slimmer, rounder body and new straps. A more efficient (but also brighter) AMOLED color screen has been added, allowing for up to seven days of battery life.

The Fitbit Charge 5 has some celebrity chutzpeh behind it too, with Will Smith saying it helped him lose his “father body” (he took to Instagram earlier this year to admit he was in the worst shape of his life was). The new Fitbit model isn’t just a regular tracker. Along with the normal health data that most trackers rate, such as steps, fitness, sleep, and general well-being, buyers get a free six-month trial of Fitbit Premium, a new service that gives them health and fitness advice and access to more than 500 workouts , Mindfulness and nutrition sessions.

With the Daily Readiness feature, Charge 5 tells you every morning if your body is ready to sweat or if a recovery session is needed instead. When you wake up, you will be given a rating based on your fitness fatigue (previous activity), heart rate variability, and sleep quality. Analysis of how you achieved this score will also be available, along with health and fitness suggestions such as a recommended goal for the activity and workouts or sessions that can help you make the right decisions for your body that day .

The updated device also tracks stress, breathing rate, changes in skin temperature, and oxygen saturation in your blood. And the Charge 5 includes GPS, 20 workout modes, automatic workout detection and a V02 max estimate, and has access to its EKG app while monitoring heart health 24/7 and sending you notifications when your heart rate is over or under personal areas falls.
