Google unveiled a new flagship Fitbit

Google, which has already bought a well-known manufacturer of wearable electronics Fitbit some time ago, has introduced a new smart bracelet Fitbit Charge 5.

It has received one of the biggest design changes in the Charge series since the launch of the first Charge HR bracelet back in 2015. Fitbit Charge 5 boasts smooth lines and a rounded design, instead of the angular past. It is also the first Charge to feature an AMOLED color display. The screen is 10% larger in size than the Charge 4. An always-on display option is also available. 

The manufacturer promises up to seven days of battery life - with the "always-on display" option turned off, but if you turn it on, the battery life is reduced to two days. 

The main module of the Charge 5 is 10% thinner than the Charge 4 and will be more comfortable to wear. The bracelet received sensors for taking an electrocardiogram (ECG), as well as electrodermal activity to track the body's response to stress.

The Charge 5 offers many other more familiar health tracking features such as monitoring heart rate, sleep, and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2). There is also a GPS module.

Separately, it is worth noting the Daily Readiness Score feature, available only to users of the paid Fitbit Premium subscription ($ 9.99 per month or $ 79.99 per year). The function offers different levels of exercise, based on the user's recent activity, sleep, and heart rate changes, to ensure effective recovery. Fitbit will recommend more intense workouts or lighter workouts, depending on your metrics. 

Fitbit Pay payment service is supported. On the screen, you can track notifications and even respond to them with the suggested quick replies if the bracelet is connected to an Android smartphone. The Charge 5 will also be able to work with iOS, despite the fact that Google completed the purchase of Fitbit back in January.

Fitbit Charge 5 is available in black, silver, and gold. The price was $ 179.95, which is $ 30 higher than Charge 4's price at launch. Buyers are offered six months of free access to Fitbit Premium. US pre-orders begin today and open sales begin in the fall.
