Fitbit is gearing up to launch Charge 4 as a follow-up to its popular Charge 3 fitness band. The renders of the upcoming wearable have surfaced online, revealing a design that is almost the same as Charge 3. Separately, the Charge 4 was also spotted in an FCC listing which confirmed some of the features of the device. Here are more details.
Fitbit Charge 4: At a glance
As per the leaked renders, the Charge 4 looks physically the same as its predecessor. So, it will sport a rectangular greyscale touchscreen display with an adjustable silicon strap and a waterproof aluminum body. On the rear, we see a slew of electronic components that should include an optical heart rate sensor, a relative SpO2 sensor, NFC sensor, and a proprietary 3-pin charging point.
The band will also pack an altimeter
Going by the new watchface seen in the renders, the Fitbit Charge 4 may come with an altimeter to help count total stairs climbed and ascertain attained altitude. The watchface also features bolder and bigger numerals while showing the date, and some activity stats.
It will also come with a host of health features
As of now, we don't know what new health capabilities Fitbit will offer. However, looking at the Charge 3, we can expect Charge 4 to track sleep and monitor blood oxygen levels as well as heart-rate. Further, it should also show stats related to calorie count, distance, and other exercises. The wearable will also provide smartphone alerts for calls, messages, and other notifications.
Fitbit Charge 4 will cost around Rs. 12,500
According to a separate leak, the Fitbit Charge 4 will be priced at £139 in the UK , which is approximately Rs. 12,500 in India. The renders also confirm that it will come in at least two colors: Black and Rosewood. Further, the device may not run on Wear OS since Google's acquisition of Fitbit is pending regulatory approval.
