Fitbit has just released the Fitbit Charge 5, a new fitness tracker. The Charge 5 has a brighter, colour touchscreen and a battery life of up to seven days. When you buy Fitbit’s new fitness tracker, you’ll receive a 6-month subscription to Fitbit Premium for free.
The Fitbit Charge 5 has an AMOLED colour display that is twice as bright as its predecessor and has always-on functionality. It also has up to 20 different customisable watch faces and the ability to quickly receive and send notifications from and to your Android smartphone.
Fitbit’s new Daily Readiness feature will be available on the Fitbit Charge 5 as part of the included Fitbit Premium subscription. You can use Daily Readiness to see if your body is ready for a workout or if you should concentrate on recovery instead. Every morning, you will receive a score based on your fitness weariness (activity), heart rate variability (HRV), and most recent sleep.
Charge 5 also has an integrated GPS, 20 exercise modes, automatic exercise identification, and an estimation of your V02 max. Plus, with Premium, you’ll get access to over 200 programmes from professional trainers and prominent brands like Daily Burn, barre3, obé, and LES MILLS‘ new high energy workouts.
Fitbit Premium gives you access to over 300 meditation and mindfulness sessions from businesses and professionals, including Ten Percent Happier and Mindful Method by Deepak Chopra, to help you manage your stress. Furthermore, Premium subscribers will soon have access to content from Calm, one of the top apps for Sleep, Meditation, and Relaxation, thanks to a new partnership between Fitbit and the app. A 24/7 heart tracker, SpO2, and various sleep tools such as daily Sleep Score, Sleep Stages, and SmartWake alarms are also included in the new fitness tracker.
The Fitbit Charge 5 retails for RM878 and is available for purchase in Malaysia starting from October 4.
