Last year, Google provided to buy Fitbit in a tremendous$2.1 billion all-cash offer. While that acquisition is still not set in stone, Fitbit seems to be charging ahead with its first wearable launch of the year. Thanks to some sleuthing done by folks over at 9to5Google, we are almost particular that brand-new Fitbit fitness trackers are on their way.
UK-based accessories keep MobileFun has actually noted two designs of a gadget called the Fitbit Charge 4 on its platform. It has likewise separately noted 2 silicone strap options for the brand-new tracker. The listings details all the features of the supposed Charge 4 along with pricing for its different variations.
Remarkably, the new physical fitness band has actually likewise appeared in an FCC listing with the same design number as the one pointed out in the retail listing. This informs us that the company might be on the verge of launching the new Charge 4 trackers.
Fitbit Charge 4 specs and pricing
The two designs noted on MobileFun include a vanilla Fitbit Charge 4 and a Fitbit Charge 4 Special Edition. The bright side is that both variations support NFC for Fitbit Pay this time around. 2018’s Fitbit Charge 3 was also sold in two versions: regular and unique edition. Just the pricier unique edition sported NFC for around $20 more.
That said, the standard Fitbit Charge 4 is listed with a price of ₤ 139.99 (~$160). It is available for pre-order on the website in Black, Rosewood, and Storm Blue/Black colors. On the other hand, the Fitbit Charge 4 Special Edition is noted at ₤ 159.99 (~$183) with a Granite colorway. The optional silicone strap is priced at ₤ 29 (~$33) in a Frost White color. Regretfully, no item photos are readily available in any of the listings.
Other functions on the brand-new Charge 4 seem pretty constant with what we saw on the Charge 3, such as a 24/7 pedometer, sleep tracking, IP68 water resistance, and Bluetooth connectivity. Appears like the brand-new trackers will once again lose out on a devoted GPS, so you’ll still need to bring your phone along on your runs.
Remember, there is still no main word from Fitbit on these brand-new trackers so we can’t actually ensure the details originating from the listings. However, it’s been two years considering that the Charge series was updated so releasing new devices only appears rational.
